Recreation in ShanghaiPosted Nov 17, 2014 on Hotels
We stayed there for 2 days to prepare a business meeting afterwards. We stayed ther after a former visit of 1 week in last year. Staff was frienly, speaking English. The general shape of Hotel is about as best time is passed now. This time in November the indoor pool was - in despite to booking - not accessable ("closed in winter"). Some items like safebox, TV had to be claimed for repair and even climatisation/heater did never really work. Also in the evening, bar and cafe are closed too early - several people would have liked getting together there but must order before 22:30. Breakfast was suggested to be included in booking price, but on site it was not. The advantage of the hotel is the nice neigbourhood to the botanical garden and it is very quiet and well established in this quarter. Thus in the evening there are no activities available nearby and the distance to the city center is relatively far. The internet was working fairly. The habit of the Hotel is somewaht a recreation place.

Beautiful and clean hotelPosted Sep 9, 2014 on Hotels
As other reviewers mention, it is slightly outside the main part of the city - however, it was perfect for us because it was in close proximity to where family lived. The hotel was very clean, the staff extremely professional and everyone spoke at least a little bit of english, and the hotel is walking distance from the beautiful Shanghai Botanical Gardens (only 20RMB, or about $3.50 entrance fee). The room was cleaned well every day and we had a lovely view of the hotel's pond and black swans. I would highly recommend, especially if you need to stay in the southern part of Shanghai for any reason.

Excellent place to de-jet lag.Posted Sep 1, 2014
Pros: Next to the Botantical Gardent. Outdoor dinning. Very pleasant staff. Nice pool, too.
Cons: Some of the outdoor furniture on the deck was ragged.
Location: Not too far (10 minute cab - 14 RMB) from the Shanghai South Railway Station.
I have been to the tourist areas of Shanghai several times, so for me, it was not neccessary to be in the heart of the tourist district. What is remarkable about Skylight Gardents is its immediate proximity to the Shanghai Botanical Gardens. As a hotel guest, you have free admission, and a private gate that enters into an expansive oasis. If you are in trepidation of air pollution and the hustle and bustle of Shanghai, I would recommend this hotel. The downside is that it is not close to major attractions. So, if you are looking for a very pleasant place to de-compress, before moving to another area of China, and have no need to do tourism 101, then I would recommend this four-star accomodation.

I will refer this hotel to other peoplePosted Nov 25, 2013
Pros: The staff are polite and responsive. Quick room service. The overall ambient was good. I can see greens, a garden, and a pool with black swans in it.
Cons: The furniture and the showere ceiling in my room was broken...
Location: Located remotely from CBD so it's relatively inconvenient.
The hotel is basically decent and claen but some furniture were kind of old and outdated. The "biggest" downside of this hotel is that it is remote from the downtown area and there is no subway to access nearby.
