Rayfront Shanghai Celebrity Hotel & Apartment is located in the Xuhui downtown area. It is conveniently located adjacent to the Internal Elevated Highway, the Nanbei Elevated Highway, Lupu Bridge, Fuxing Lu Tunnel and Dapu Lu Tunnel. It takes about 10 minutes to reach shopping areas such as Xujiahui, Huaihai Lu and Xintiandi. The d-¦cor is a perfect integration of fashion, art and philosophy. With unique designs in each room, the business suite is simple and fashionable while the apartment suite is magnificent and extraordinary. The European style finishing, independent kitchen and comprehensive facilities cater to the comforts of the guests. The distinct Chinese and Western restaurants and clubhouse provide the guests with many leisurely options. A combination of the high-quality facilities and the prompt and personalized service make this place a good home away from home.
good price-performance ratio ”
a friend of mine stayed in this hotel a few times. he always choose the business suite in the rayfont celebrity hotel & apartment because of the good price-performance ratio and the location close to the city. he recommended this hotel and would come back again. so if you have a longer stay in shanghai for business or whatever reasons, take the rayfont celebrity hotel & apartment.
Nice cusy hotel with nice rooms, but language was ”
Although it was my first ever visit to China "main land", and the first time to stay in Rayfont Hotel & apartment chain of hotels, but in general I quite liked my stay, the hotel security is very good, I like the country, the people are very friendly and always smiling, Shanghai is very beautiful city with lovely night life, excellent shopping. I am thinking to return to Shanghai in couple of months, but this time with the family. I recommend Shanghai for excellent shopping with excellent prices, and remember that you have to bargain.
Great business and it does not break your bank ”
I love my stay in Rayfont Celebrity Hotel & Apartment, it was about 5- 8 mins walk away from the transit train and opposite was a great massage place with friendly staffs. The room heater was great, the room and toilet was clean. I will be booking this place again
The hotel has a grat location for people who want to visit the Expo 2010 in Shanghai. Walking over there is an option, but there is also a metro station really close, four blocks, to the hotel and from there you can go everywhere. Rooms are very well equipped, with big flat screen TV and everything needed, they even provide the use of bathrobes and sleepers. Personnel in the hotel are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel either for a visit to Expo or to the city. Prices are also very reasonable.
Good hotel for a great price”
This was a great hotel for the price I paid. The room was small, but had a balcony, and the finishing was nice. It had a nice flat screen TV and a mini-refrigerator, which was great because you get really thirsty walking around Shanghai and you could buy a couple large drinks to keep. It is only a 10 minute walk from the subway but most of the attractions are not on the same line, so at least one transfer is required. There is a convenience store next to the hotel, and a bunch of restaurants in walking distance (both real Chinese food and fast food).
I always book celebrity when I come to Shanghai, it is the best bang for the buck. Each room is modernly furnished, with nice heating and air con systems. I always use their swimming pool and gym when I stay there, it is very well kept. Their food room service and restaurant is lacking but there are many good places to eat within walkable distance.
Budget hotel which nothing fancy that was close to metro.”
Hotel was budget which is obvious by the price. We had 2 bed apart. Beds were hard but found that this seems to be the norm after staying at a few hotels in China Close to metro which was great. Staff at desk happy to help when asked and if they couldnt speak english they would grab another who could. Our rooms were made each day and any requests we had the staff delt with straight away. Room was a little run down but for price i wouldnt expect anything else. All up great location to metro with plenty of eateries and food shops within walkin distance.
Good location and spacious rooms”
The hotel was very nice and clean compared to other hotels I saw in the same price range. The gym was also OK. There was also an spa which I didn't the rooms had no sun exposure so they were probably fungus infected. Overall nice hotel 5-10min walking distance from the subway station. I would stay there again if I ever go back to Shanghai.
Great Location, Acceptable Service”
We stayed at the Rayfont Celebrity for 6 days, acceptable for young adults who are after a bargain and not 4 star service (though Shanghai people are generally quite nice). Its a high rise apartment converted into a hotel, located at Xietu Road near Ruijin Road. Don't expect the taxi drivers to know where the hotel is, its in a mostly residential area. McDonalds, Yoshinoya and KFC are one block away. SML Mall (where the subway stops is across Mc Donalds). A large supermarket (TESCO) is two blocks away. A bank and small 7/11 type store is right beside the hotel. Stay was acceptable, specially since I knew a little bit of Chinese.
Really Great Rooms”
we were traveling as 3 people, so it was great that we could have two separate bedrooms! we found the rooms to be modern, clean and very comfortable. rooms were serviced daily. very quiet rooms and heard no noise from other guests. bathroom has a shower in a box which we find to be a real luxury in asia. bathroom also had a washer /drier. you have to pay 50 rmb for the connecting hose to use the machine, but that's nothing considering you can do as many loads as you want - another great value. internet is pay as you go, either 1rmb for 1min or 36rmb for the day. we used it a couple times but didn't really miss not having internet access. there are plenty of coffee shops around with free wifi if you really need it. about 10 min walk to dapuqiao station. once in the station area, there are plenty of eating options and shopping. all you need in this area. subway is clean and quick, and is only 5 stops to get to the city centre (peoples square). convenience store is located next to the hotel, 2min walk. service was very helpful and their english was good enough for what we wanted. unfortunately, they didn't book us a taxi when we checked out (even though we had organised the day before) but they quickly flagged one down for us. all in all a great place and we would definitely stay here again.
Spacious and Comfortable Stay”
Our stay at the Rayfont Celebrity Hotel was comfortable, since the place is spacious- with sala, dining area and kitchen. The place was clean and there was more than enough beds for our group of three people. The Hotel staff were courteous and ready to help for our need for directions and to translate for us. We checked in and check out fast
Value for Money”
The design of the hotel is the same as Xuhui Rayfront. The layout and everything is the same except that Rayfont Shanghai Celebrity Hotel & Apartment is slightly older. The hotel staffs are friend, they knew i was quite particular with the dust at the balcony and they mobbed it for me everyday. Location wise,
Great with some trouble”
Overall it is great, but have some problem during check in. come to Rayfont Celebrity, getting told that my reservation is for Rayfont Downtown, walking around 500 meters to Rayfont Downtown and getting told that it is for Rayfont Celebrity and then need to walking back again. Room is nice, staff a little bit uncooperative but still acceptable
Convenient location but building needs maintenance”
The Rayfont Celebrity Hotel is situated in a convenient location both from the airport and to points of interest in Shanghai. Services and staff manner are good. Bed is comfortable. I didn't try the catering and so have no comment. Air conditioning works well. However, the shower cabinet drained very badly. Water flooded and it was very uncomfortable to soak the feet in dirty water. It took a few hours to drain and it was impossible for another person to take a bath that night.
great bang for buck”
So my friend and I stayed at the Rayfont for four days and three nights. We were really impressed by how much we got for our money. Though we were staying at high season for World Expo and hotel all around were mad expensive, the price here was cheap- and we still had access to a great indoor pool, a nice gym, activity rooms like chess and table tennis, and a decent massage parlor. in addition, the location is great- a 10 minute cab ride to the Expo and 15 minutes to the Bund. The one real negative is that the staff barely speaks english- come prepared knowing some choice chinese phrases or having written down all the places you need to go in chinese, otherwise they will not be of help
although the booking was for deluxe double room, a 3-bedroom apartment was offered (no idea why). the great thing is that we got a huge living room which we can have a lot of chats and games in the evening for a large group of people. if you wish to sleep, you may go to your own bedroom, with a large bed and large tv. therefore, you can also enjoy your private space. to conclude, this 3-bedroom apartment is a must-choice for trallvers of a group!
Peaceful and quiet Hotel”
This is the first time me staying at Rayfont Celebrity Hotel & Apartment. The counter staff are very friendly and will greet everyone with a warm smile. The rooms are still livable but their internet speed could be better. They should also add in breakfast for agoda package as the shops are too far away for breakfast before we go work. It is also very difficult to get a taxi and really has not much eating places around that area.
We stayed 3nights with the campain price. It had two bedrooms. Each room has a double bed, Tv, telphone and desk. Best fit for family or group travel. The apartment is quite new and clean, has plenty of storage. There are two subways around with 5-10mins walk. Taxi to huai hai lu is abt 12 RMB.
Rayfont Shanghai Celebrity Hotel & Apartment”
Value for money. Stayed 4 nights in the 2 bedroom unit and found the hotel very clean. The staff are very helpful especially the bell boys (always offer to hail taxi for us). There is no subway near the hotel but there are plenty of taxi and only cost RMB12 to XinTianDi. Mcdonald's and PizzaHut are not far (10 mins) from the hotel. Recommend the hotel for those who are always out during the day and only come back to sleep/rest.
