Stayed here one night on a 7 day shanghai region shopping tour. The trip was free including airfare, so we couldn't really complain about the standard. This building is grand in concept and if you have bad eyesight and cannot smell the mildew and mold, you might even think it is a beautiful place. But beware - they have a... More

This hotel is one of the worst during my time in China. Basically the rooms are ok, a bit old and dusty but spacious. The hotel itselve is huge but with only a few visitors many facilities are out of order ie closed. The worst thing was the smell from the garbage piled up at the back of the hotel.... More

Stayed at the Grand Tang, twice in one week on a budget Shanghai area tour. The rooms on both occasions were of low end standard but definitely not 5 star more like 3 star. May have been 5 star 20 years ago but now appears run down. Definitely not to international standards e.g. stained carpets and rough edges everywhere. Swimming... More

The only thing of merit is this hotel is within walking distance to the Shanghai Circuit. The hotel is quite run down. I walked around my floor and it seemed some of it wasn't even occupied - lights off and paint peeling from the walls and ceiling. The carpet was filthy, but at least they provided slippers - wear them!... More

The rooms are old. The building also old. The lobby is huge. The breakfast is too crowded. Full of chinese people with bad manner. If you are in group and do not concern about the budget. You better pick another hotel
