    This is one of the few hotel which I would recommend. It's well situated on West Yan'an road, which is the thoroughfare of Shanghai, right opposite of the famed Jin'An temple and it's surrounding high end shopping malls and eating places. One of my all time favorite hotel in Shanghai. You will enjoy your stay at this hotel, like I always do.

    Good hotel and value for money”

    Hotel was located nearby the metro. A 10min walk with luggage is a tad hard if you have heavy suitcases. However, it’s conveniently located with safe elevated pedestrian bridges for you to cross the heavy traffic. Check in was smooth although the recep did take awhile. Room was basic but we were pleased with the comfortable beds and pillows. We had a great rest that night. I managed to try the spa. The massage was priced okay but the quality of my massage was good. Really helped to ease my muscles after all the walking I had at West Lake.

    Great Hotel ”

    Hotel Equatorial has exist around 18 years, it is one of the 5 star hotel in Shanghai. The check in is smooth and staff are friendly. Concierge is reasonable helpful and not as friendly as other 5 star hotel. Breakfast spread is medicore, coffee is great. The breakfast server is not properly train. They don't really know what service means. If a customer walk in and ask for a coffee they should go and pick up a cup of coffee then serve to the customer and not by pointing to the coffee machine. In a 5 star hotel normally the staff will serve the coffee although they have the machine there and it is up to the customer to pick up the coffee themselves or self service. Customer pays the money is to get the service if no service better stays in a 3 star hotel with good room with less service. The room is great and the room cleaner are also great. Room are well clean.

    Helpful staff”

    We were given a room that smells of cigarette smoke and the staff was quick to allow for a room change. We were then given longer check-out hour on our last day. I have to receive and dispatch parcels while staying at the hotel and everything went through smoothly, with the help of the concierge of course. All in all I am pleased with the service rendered.

    Stayed here for 2 nights. Did not expect anything since i’m not familiar with the hotel. Checked in and out was fast. Service was great. Breakfast is ok. Location is really good. Close to subway and there are nearby malls. Beside the hotel, there is a Lawson. Tried there gym and pool and it was great. Overall, would definitely go back and recommend this hotel.

    I have been going to this hotel on and off for about 10 years and stopped in recent time. Reason being it has suffered from mismanagement and the place was turning to custard. However, I am pleasantly surprise they have turned things around now. The rooms have been nicely done up with new carpet, decorations, and furnishing. Very happy with the experience.

    for the amount we paid for this hotel, we could not ask for more. the check-in process was fast and we had a parcel coming in that the reception staff knew as well.

    value for money. though there was minor issues that hotel staff was slow like asking for a plate took almost an hour to arrive. spme of the food served during breakfast were not good like before, noodle soup and youtiao.
