It is perfect hotel for first visitors!”
The only reason why I chose this hotel was location. It seems to be very close to City Airport terminal near Jing-an temple. I was almost first visiting in Shanghai, so transportation made me afraid to use. It takes 6-7 minutes from Jingan temple City Airport terminal by foot and subway station is located just in front of hotel. Whether you use any airport in Shanghai, you will feel free to reach this hotel. And, because this hotel is located beside Jingan temple, you can use a taxi very easily. Even though I cannot speak in Chinese at all, I didn't need to say anything but "Jingan temple," when I took a taxi. The room is a little bit old, but it was large enough for 2 people(actually I used it alone). Amenities are organic and good to use. Breakfast is not that fancy, but good enough because it was well-balanced. With reasonable price, I was very satisfied with Paramount Gallery Hotel.
Great value and service”
The Paramount Gallery Hotel was very good. The location is excellent. The staff was friendly, helpful and there was always someone english speaking on duty. The rooms are well desinged , clean and spacious with nice bathrooms. We had a spectacular view of Jing'an Temple and city. Breakfast had a good selection of food and wifi was included. The Paramount Gallery Hotel is a very good value and we are looking forward to stay there again on our next trip to Shanghai.
Great modern and spacious hotel”
We booked into this hotel after being turned down in previously booked HoJo huaihai because we didnt have our original passports which were being returned by consulate next morning. So despite being a chinese hotel, Paramount staff were extremely helpful and customer minded in letting us book and check in late on Sunday evening without our passports. The hotel is quite new and the rooms are very spacious, clean and with a great panoramic windows which offer a spectacular view of Shanghai downtown and light during the day. The bathroom was surprisingly large and comfy with its warm floors. Hotel staff were always very attentive and although breakfast by western standards is not their strength they offer a more than adequate one. Not only we would stay here again but we recommend it to everyone that is looking for a great value hotel and a convenient location next to Jing'an metro station.
Five years of fantastic service”
I have been staying at the Paramount gallery steadily for several years now they have never let me down the staff is always been excellent the rooms are always clean it's in an excellent location value for the money in Shanghai you can't beat it Bruce the new customer service manager is outstanding the true test of the hotel is how you were treated under extenuating circumstances and the Paramount gallery never fails to deliver in short I love this place
FINALLY A COMFY BED IN CHINA!!”
I enjoyed my stay at paramount gallery hotel thoroughly. I was thoroughly well rested throughout the 3 nights I was at shanghai. Contrary to many locally run hotels, most hotels provides very hard beds, but this hotel's was fluffy and nice. The only thing I think the hotel should improve on is its breakfast selection and its lobby or reception at the first floor. The first floor looked a bit rundown and dangerous.
My frequent stays at the Paramount Gallery”
I stay at the Paramount Gallery three or four times a year. The price is definitely right, everything is clean, the staff is very friendly and professional (although I have to add selfishly that a higher level of English would be appreciated), the breakfast buffet is acceptable (but needs some variety from day to day) and finally, considering its location, it's surprisingly quiet. One big improvement would be to have more equipment in the fitness center. I can't really call it a fitness center as there are only three pieces of equipment there.
Absolutely fantastic , location, service & quality”
i had read reviews about this hotel on a couple of websites and fortunately we took the advice of agoda and not trip advisor who rated this hotel as sub standard this hotel is nothing short of fantastic. we have travelled extensively and in many countries and the paramount hotel stands up there with the top poppy's. the bonus is that it is very moderately priced. the service was great, the rooms were very clean , tidy and modern. the restaurant was well equipped for both local and international travellers. we could not fault this hotel and is exceptional value for money. it is situated in a very good tourist area as well.
Fantastic hotel in so many ways”
It was good from the start. Check-in was easy and fast. When I got to the room, it was free of any smoke smell (and it was a smoking room as they had a "don't smoke on the bed" sign near the bed). Bed was clean and comfy, pillows were luxurious. The knock-out was size of the bathroom. Though not much time spent there, it didn't give you a claustrophobic feel at all. Heck, there were two sinks - one for him and one for her. So no more rushing in the morning. Breakfast was decent and the spread changed every morning. It was just a 1 minute walk to the first entrance to subway Line 2. Can't really ask for more. While I was checking out, the staff asked me if I needed a cab. Once the check-out is done, the cab was already waiting for me. I've not got such service before even with other international 5-star hotels. For the next Shanghai trip, Paramount will certainly rank high on my list of "to stay".
no issues at all. this was the second time i stayed at the Paramount Gallery Hotel albeit within just 8 days of each stay and the staff are very friendly, helpful but more importantly, the quality of the rooms is just perfect. the only downside is the lack of facilities and i wouldn't really call it 5*, probably 4* but delux. i would think twice about returning, for me it is a given.
A great hotel”
The hotel is just adjasent to the subway station, which is quite convenient for going out. It is opposite to Jing'An Temple, so if you are in Shanghai for tourism, this is a good hotel to choose to stay. The surroundings are convenient too as there are two department stores and there is a large supermarket under one of which. There are also some bakeries and local snack shops, such as 7-11 nearby. It is quite convenient because of its great location. The hotel itself is also clean and neat. The staff are super friendly as they are always willing to help you with the luggage.
Good location. Good equipment. Good breakfast.”
Good location. Easy arrival. It is just 1 minute on foot from metro line 2 Jing'an station. And it is just in opposite side of Jing'an temple. Very convenient to reach anywhere of Shanghai. But the main problem is that some construction nearby. From 7 o'clock they beginning working. It is rather noisy. But my friend's room is not in the same side so she said very comfortable. We do not suggest Chinese people to book hotels through agoda if they are on business trip. Because all hotels could not issue official invoice for rooms that book through agoda, which means they can not claim it back from company. For those do not need invoice, it is ok.
Great place to stay, nicely appointed hotel.”
The room was neat clean and very comfortable for us as a couple, plenty of closet and storage space, very quiet and cosy, we really enjoyed staying there apart from the fact that the internet was slow and very sporadic, I often stay in hotels as a business traveller and could not recommend this a place for business travellers as the communication media is too unreliable, staff did try to assist when approached but internet access was terrible, as a vacation hotel, I could not recommend the Paramount Gallery highly enough.GOOD..
Well priced suite”
I stayed during the recent shanghai trade expo so many places around Jing'an were already booked. This hotel was well priced and centrally located. It is slightly dated in the reception area, corridors and room compared to some of the newer hotels. Staff were friendly and stored my bags when i arrived early. Would stay here again for the price.
I traveled to shanghai for business purpose. The hotel is quite convenient since it is next to two big department stores, where you can find food and something to buy. There is also a big supermarket in the basement level of one depatment store. And it is just next to an underground station, which is quite convenient for transport. The external environment is good. It is next to the Jing'an Temple which is also good for attractions and tourism.
This 12-to-20th floor hotel is located in a major posh shopping district of Shanghai and there is a metro station just across the street. The amenities are limited for a five-star rated hotel, but the facilities offered are tasteful and top-notch. Our room had a spectacular view overlooking the magnificent Jing-An Temple and beyond. Shopping and food in the area is more than plentiful. The building also hosts a famous spa just below the hotel. The breakfast offering was smaller than expected but still sufficient for both local and western taste buds. The emphasis is on quality rather than quantity. The only minor complaint was the lack of a bathtub. By the way, service is always pleasant and splendid for Chinese-speakers/ nationalists. It seems that most complaints about bad service in China on Agoda are from non-Chinese speakers. Well, conversely... I almost never see any other country catering to non-English/local languages. Well, you know what they say… “When in Rome… ”
Good Location and Nice View”
the lobby is at 12f. it's not at 1f. there is same name club behind this hotel. take care when you check-in. this hotel is next to one of famous temple in shanghai, jin'an temple. the subway station is also close to this hotel. my room was jin'an temple side. i could see that temple under my feet. seriously nice viewing. this hotel is not new but inside was renovated. it was not felt old hotel. the restaurant is at 12f for our breakfast. the viewing from the restaurant is also good. we can see the temple from the window of the restaurant. we can get a taxi easily. if we take a taxi from the hotel to pudong airport, the price is rmb230 around. if i have another chance, i'll book this hotel again.
Great Location, Chinese Boutique Hotel”
The Paramount is a small, Boutique hotel in the center of the Jing An Temple area. Great location- but tough to find. It is the 12-21st floor of the Paramount Bldg, entrance off to the side of Nanjing Rd. Card access to the room - no need to walk thru the lobby. I had stayed here 6 months ago- and since then, the rooms have been renovated - and they did a GREAT job. The rooms are large, bed is very comfortable, bathroom is very large with bath & shower (with rain shower head), marble everywhere... Rooms have a large flat screen TV, and good free internet. Note that this is a Chinese hotel - so the included breakfast is Asian, the excersize room is small (but plenty for the 120 rooms - I was there 3 mornings - and the only one). There is no concierge - don't expect tour information, tickets, etc - just great service directly related to the hotel. But overall I will stay again when I come back
Value for Money hotel near the Temple.”
The hotel is conveniently located closed to Jing'an Temple and the underground railway. There were quite a lot of restaurants in the neighbourhood and a wide selection of different cuisine. It's not difficult to locate the hotel as they have a staff to stand by always.
Luxury in a great location!”
We thoroughly enjoyed the luxury at the Paramount. The room was wonderful and the location perfect for wandering around Shanghai. The only drawback was the breakfast - not terrific or in keeping with the standard the hotel presents.
Location and excellent value for price point”
An pleasant and comfotable stay, with prime location near many eateries and malls. Jing'an Metro is 20 meters away, under Jing'an temple, which was just across the street from our hotel. Room was spacious enough, but toilet was a tad small. At night our toilet had a strong cigarette smoke smell, unfortunately, maybe from nearby rooms or upper level so I had to close the bathroom door tightly. In the morning, the smell was gone luckily. To find the hotel, the entrance was next to Old Navy. There's an excellent coffee shop next to it, called Aunn.
