“lovely hotel!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

Renaissance putuo is a great hotel with exceptionally good entrance lobby and common rooms... The rooms here are spacious and clean. the bathroom arrangement is lovely for honeymooners... considering it opens straight to the bed... The service is great and prompt. Shanghai offers a wide range of hotels.. renaissance putuo being one of the premium most. But be ready to shell out an extra buck for the same. Its expensive as compared to the other cheaper options available. The location goes slightly off track and you have to travel for about 40 mins to reach nanjing street(most happening place in shanghai.) Other than this i did not see any draw back in the hotel.

This is a very good hotel in Shanghai if you do not mind to be far away from Downtown. We stayed there as a base to visit an Exhibition at the Expo site, since it will take you 11 subway stations (in the same line 7) from the Hotel to the closest subway station near Expo, but you will still take between 40 to 50 minutes to get there, although at a cost of 4 RMB only. In the morning we use a taxi to get to the Expo and it took us the same time (40 to 50 minutes), but 80 RMB.

The rooms aver very well designed and comfortable with a good desk area, good bathroom and comfortable bed. Internet speed that we got complimentary being a Marriot Rewards member was fast enough.

Breakfast was good, but a bit crowded since this hotel accommodate a lot of tour groups. Dinner buffet was just fine, but the best deal (at least during our stay) was the all you can eat dinner buffet at their Japanese restaurant with a very good selection of food and drinks for just 248 RMB.

There is a mall next to the Hotel, but nothing special in it, except you want to have a Pizza (Pizza Hut is there). They supposed to have a supermarket (Lotus) but it was not open yet.

Opposite the Hotel and near the subway entrance (number 3) you have a convenience store (Family Mart).

I would recommend this hotel to those who are concerned with cost while expecting 4.5-5 star quality. Due to its location in the Putuo district (an area of Shanghai that hasn't been fully "renovated" yet), its prices are made more affordable, especially with tour groups and those booking holiday packages. When we stayed there for the first time back in 2010 it was relatively new and the service apartment next to it was still under construction. We suspected this being the reason why we sensed an air of VOC in our room. We also experienced an episode of skin allergy when we developed hives as we were about to go to sleep. At first I thought it was VOC, but then my wife said it could be the filler in the comforter and pillows and she's allergic to duck/goose, i.e. the down. The next morning we were fine but we still asked the hotel to give us another room and change the bedding to something hypoallergenic. Once in our new room, we were fine.

Great Hotel- although location is not at the heart of Shanghai, but complete with accessible nearby mall where u can get your daily needs- Excellent hotel facility, and brand new - Service are excellent - certain portion of its rooms seem to be in association with tour operators and hence you can see big crowds- which fortunately not so loud. It will be louder if they are local tourists :-)

We liked this hotel. Our room was quiet, everything was clean and worked well. Some in our group didn't care for the sliding walls that were necessary to make a room of and isolate the bathroom from the bed room. This didn't bother us. There is a shower in addition to the tub.

The concierge was helpful to us a couple of different times.

The breakfast was very good with a variety of western and Chinese food. The chef would cook eggs to your request.

The hotel is isolated, but that was not a problem for us since we were on a big bus tour.

Be sure to check out other traveler photos as they are accurate. No need to duplicate.
