Just stayed at the Pentahotel Shanghai for 3 nights. The standard rooms are very small and the bathrooms are tiny. I mean like straddle the toilet to shut the door tiny. This was very inconvenient with two of us trying to get ready in the morning. The room itself was nice and clean but very sparse, no drawers or enclosed...

The Penta team are always very friendly and welcoming and recognise you are a regular in Shanghai. The food in the bar is always good and the choice is wide. A really friendly hotel. Thanks Penta team for making me feel at home.

We had a short team retreat during a weekend break for a client project. We were from mourned the world and never been to Shanghai before. The Penta Hotel was close to a good Metro stop, easy area to find things to do (CrossFit, Starbucks, biking). The staff was helpful during the breakfast crush. A bit of street noise at...

I have stayed at Pentahotel Shanghai twice now and the reason for returning there has been the hotel itself and its great location. I really like this hotel and I think it offers good value for money when you can catch one of the discounted room prices. However, the customer service at the front desk is always very poor. It...

If I had known more about this hotel, I would have only stayed a night or two. (I was there for 6 nights, which was too long.) The hotel is accessible by metro from Hongqiao Airport (SHA), it is just a few stops away, so that it is handy for a night or two. Zhongshan Park is a lively and...

Everything about the hotel itself (room, decor, cleanliness etc) was very good. Staff had enough English for basic enquiries. Restaurant good but you can eat more cheaply down the road. The breakfast is very good by any standards, excellent (for a Westerner) by Chinese standards. Location: a few minutes walk from the metro and a few metro stations from East...

For a weekend in Shanghai its a clean efficient stay but transportation can be sketchy. If you come for business its messy and a bit remote and difficult to get Taxis. Rooms are simple and need better cleaning carpet was smelly. And the gym is really extremely small.

Fine hotel. Good room with a very good bed. A good place for walking around and using metro. The surroundings very noisy from the traffic. I didnt tray breakfast or restaurant, but I enjoyed making tea or coffee at my room.

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighbourhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
