Grand Deluxe Room with 2 Single Beds
Stayed 6 nights in June 2013

Comfortable stay at reasonable cost”

Short walk to INTEX convention/exhibition centre, Shanghai Mart and many Consulates and Foreign Banks. Easy to find by taxi. Close to Metro line 10.

I'm frequently in Shanghai and prefer the Hongqiao area, as I used to live here. Usually I stay at one of the International hotels nearby, but decided to try Rainbow Hotel, because the Agoda offer was extremely attractive. All taxi drivers will find this hotel on Yanan Xi Lu (Yanan West Road) when you use the Chinese name, Hongqiao Bingwan. A short taxi drive from here, is the Laowai jia (Hongmei entertainment street) with many International restaurants, pubs and bars, a popular place for expats and locals. The Pearl Center with its many stalls, sells all kinds of goods, including copies/fakes of well known brands. Vendors start with up to 10 times the price it's worth, but there are some respectable shops in there too, e.g. for pearls and cashmere.

Review of Rainbow Hotel”

fast service when requesting items like matches, chopsticks, room service, towels, plumber, food
sometimes there is too much room service/housekeeping visits

this is my second time staying at the Rainbow Hotel and they never cease to amaze me. They are always very helpful and provide the items you request quickly. I love their rates and their rooms are quite spacious and cozy. They also had events to coincide with the upcoming Lunar New Year and the taxi staff outside are always helpful with luggage, opening doors despite the cold weather, and speaking to the driver to inform the cab driver of your destination.

I had my doubts about Rainbow Hotel reading the reviews. However, my stay here was perfect, a very good room with king bed, plasma TV and few english spoken channels. Price wise,no breakfast though, which still I think it was a very good deal. Metro nearby..not close to the center..but very convenienently located to the airport and train station

Very conveniently located Staff speak good English and are very helpful Japanese and Korean restaurants are very nice (didn't try the Chinese restaurant) Gym is great The room has a fridge Not noisy despite the location (vicinity of expressway)
Hair dryer is old-style and hard to use Bathroom is a bit small

Shanghai is a city where you'll find it very difficult to catch a cab at peak hours. Staying at this hotel doesn't make it any easier, but the hotel location is right across the street from Sheraton Hotel, Parkson, Friendship Mall, etc., and even from Gubei area, it's less than 30 minutes' walk. The staff understood and spoke English pretty well, were very willing to help and very helpful. I really liked this hotel, and will stay there again if I have next opportunity to visit Shanghai.

It met my needs”

Near Intex, reasonably priced, clean

Well, some other places I was planning to stay were not available, to I decided to try a different Hotel. The Rainbow Hotel is run by the JinJiang hotel group in Shanghai. It is not a new hotel, but not an old hotel. It has a good, but not great quality feel. There was an interesting special offer on Noodles, which was good, but overall the food was not inspiring. I was a little dissapointed that my room faced the freeway. Windows were pretty effective, but there was a dull noise from the traffic.

Good location. Comfortable room and bed ”

Value for money. Comfortable room.

Some misgivings to start with, as Reception tried to muck us around with allocating us one set of rooms for one night, then a move into our allocated rooms for the next 3 nights. We booked well in advance and had no desire to come back in the middle of a sight-seeing day to pack our bags and move because they weren't organised. Eventually this was sorted out satisfactorily. Not a hitch after that. For a medium price hotel this is really good value for money - reasonable room size, good amenities, great bed and well-located, if you want to be in Hongqiao

Comfy Bed

After a horrible business trip in Beijing, bad food, bad hotel, extreme weather. I can finally got some sleep at Rainbow Hotel, four pillows yet firm not too hard mattress. Clean and tidy, friendly staff. With this price, quality is above what I paid for. Definitely recommend anyone who travel to use Agoda, what I saw on the Internet was exactly the same even better, this is what a traveller looking for.

Good location with many restaurants and shopping center around, good value of money. no Wifi in the room but you can request for the wifi router at the counter (free). The room are OK with a Japanese Toilet-seat as a PLUS. The only weak point is getting around in Shanghai from this hotel with taxi will cost more because of the location ( From Pudong airport by tax 240 rmb during rush hours)

The staff at the Rainbow Hotel really stand out. They went above and beyond to provide a nice stay. I speak Chinese, but looking around at the other foreign travelers, the staff was always very friendly making sure their stay in China was safe and accessible. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone if you want to be in the Hongqiao area.

Ceanliness. Parking lot. Fast check-in/check-out.

The Rainbow hotel is a good value for money. It's a clean hotel, English speaking front desk staff, good wired internet in room and wireless in Lobbby. Parking was not hard to solve. It has a traditional hand crafted souvenirs, and we got some nice tea sets for a bargain price. Our stay was smooth, and without complains. It's not the most beautiful hotel we have stayed at, but it was pretty nice for its price. We didn't have the chance to try the swimming pool neither the gym, though.

I stayed in the Rainbow for a 5 day conference. Very friendly and helpful staff. The Chinese restaurant is good and breakfast offered a good choice. The room are large enough and well equipped. The only downpoint is the area, which is not the best. The motorway is next to the hotel and a little bit noisy.

no problems

The location of the hotel was ideal - a short walk to the International Trade Centre and Shanghai Mart. Also close to banks and some shopping. A couple of good coffee shops, bars and restaurants handy to the hotel, although not exactly a premium shopping commercial area. About twenty minutes wak to the subway, but taxi service adjacent to the hotel is excellent.

Great rooms with very comfortable beds!”

Beds, bathrooms, and location

I have stayed at this hotel before. The beds are extremely comfortable. When I was in Chengdu the hotel room bed at a different hotel was horrible, so I selected this hotel in order to rest up and recuperate from that experience. The only issue I have with this hotel is that when you order the American breakfast, they attempt to charge you for additional coffee versus it being part of the meal as stated. Each day I had to direct them to take this off. On some days, for the three of us, this was as much as $60 more they wanted that had to be taken off. Each day they did take off, yet it seems they should have improved their systems and stopped this after the first day.

Nice but lacking”

bed, concierge

I stayed at Rainbow Hotel for 4 nights. The check in process was quick but the front desk staff were not very welcoming nor friendly. The first thing that they said to me was "Passport." But the other hotel staff (concierge, room service) were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is fairly big with 30 floors and there are also several restaurants. There is no wifi acess in the rooms which was a bit uncomfortable, but there was wifi available in the lobby. The room was okay, clean and spacious but it seems like the hotel needs a little renovation. I could tell the rooms were a little outdated. However, the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom is very small and the showerhead was lacking as the water pressure was not very strong. The hotel is not very close to most of the city's site seeing places. I got to places by taxi and it cost about 30 rmb to get to Xin Tian Ti. There is a metro station about 10 minutes away by foot. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at Rainbow Hotel but I would not say this is a four star hotel

The bed and pillows are very comfortable. The hotel has a full gym with dance and yoga classes.
The staff should smile and greet customers more.

Overall this hotel is worth the money, especially when you book through agoda. The process of making the reservation is a little too troublesome though. The location of the hotel is near the main highway and good food is within walking distance. Taxis are also abundant waitng outside of the hotel entrance. I would definitely have a second stay if I were to go back to Shanghai.
