Good value hotel”

Well placed for the Tianzifeng restaurant area and not far from otherstuff too

The Rayfont hotel is fine, nothing special, but it charges a reasonable rate. I picked it because it is close to the old lanes restaurant area called Tianzifeng. This is just a 5 min walk away. Breakfast is included, which is a nice surrpise, and whilst the dining room itself is dated looking, you get an egg station and a reasonable choice of Eastern and western food. In-room internet is extra, but only about $5 a day. And it is close to a subway station, too! There are two major areas to go eating at night. Xin Tiandi has a lot of bar with bad Filippino copy bands and is quite yuppy. Tianxzifeng is more quaint, with more diverse restaurants and quirky shops. About 5 min walk from the hotel is an area of old lanes that has been refurbiched to house a hundred small restaurants. They are old chinese houses and some have upstairs and some even have balconies. There are a few odd and ecclectic shops. This is probably my favourite area in Shanghai. You will find many Asian flavours, indian, thai, japanese, italian and more. There are small shops sellings ouvenirs, fake ties, leather writing books and original 50's sunglasses. As usual in China, buyer beware.

This is my second time staying at Rayfront Downtown Hotel. My first experience was good and given me the confidence for me to come back again this time. I love the location of the hotel and enjoy my stay. The room charge is reasonable. I will choose Rayfront again if I come back Shanghai next time. One thing which i think it needs improvment is that the hotel should allow for free Wifi service.

NIce and clean hotel, near shopping & tourism spot”

The room is clean,easy access 5 mins walk to Dapuqiao Metro Train Station and near Tourism spot Tian Zi Fang

The room is very clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful although with limited english spoken staff, but they try their best to speak in english. As you have to aware when travel to Shanghai that majority of the residences could not speak english, so tourists must equip themselves with little basic mandarin, event in the airport or central town in Shanghai. This hotel is very near to Tian Zi Fang, a nice artistic and antique market in town that's been one of the tourism spots. It's located at the opposite of the main street to the right. Near Tian Zi Fang you could find a SML Shopping Center and inside this at LG level, you could find Dapuqiao metro train station. You could easily access to central town using this train. The price of the room is very reasonably cheap as the location of the hotel is near to central town and attraction area and it's very worthed for money. The negative about this hotel is that it doesn't have internet wifi, but you could get a phone SIM card China Unicom at the SML Shopping Center, so that you could easily access the internet everywhere during your visit in Shanghai. I'll definitely stay at this hotel for next trip to Shanghai.

Very good price for what you get”

great price, close to the Metro (subway), close to a lot of food and shopping

The hotel is right next to a skybridge, which takes you to Dapuqiao Station of the Shanghai subway. The subway is the best way to explore city on budget. It's also almost impossible to get a cab during rush hour and dinner time(4pm-7pm). There is a Watsons, Mcdonalds, and Pizza Hut at the bottom of the skybridge, but I recommend crossing the bridge into the basement of the mall which has the metro station and a wide variety of local and foreign flavours. Xintiandi has a great pedestrian only street with bars and restaurants. Jingan has a few clubs that you can go to if you're interested. Hollywood is ladies night on Wednesday, and is packed with expats. Familiarize yourself with the Shanghai metro lines to get to the places you want to go. Most likely, there will be a station where you want to go, and most likely, you will have a hard time finding a cab back to the hotel around dinner time, so try to have dinner before heading back.

Return Visit”

Clean, central location, pool & Gym.
Shower had loose tiles, bar fridge failed to keep drinks cold.

It was definitely worth while paying the little extra for the business room with the larger bed and bigger room. Still had the beautiful balcony overlooking downtown PuXi and a much more spacious bathroom. Only issues I could have with the hotel is the location of the Pool and gym facilities and the bar fridge. The pool and gym require a 5 minute walk to the Celebrity Hotel. The facilities themselves are quite good and the pool was fantastic in the heat but the shower/change room area was covered in water and so not the most ideal. The bar fridge didn't adequately cool the bottled drinks which was dissapointing given the heat of Shanghai.

Price, Location, comfortable beds!

We had a nice stay at the Rayfont Downtown. We were traveling with our 5 year old daughter for a month in China and the hotel sooted our needs. It was in a wonderful location close to the metro station and plenty of great shopping and restaurants around. It hotel even had an indoor pool and gym that we used almost everyday. There was even a small kids play gym in a park area where resedents would bring there kids as well. The staff was quick to fix our sink when it clogged up as well as when the air-condition stopped to work. I would highly recomend this hotel if you are on a tight budget but what a great location. It could have been cleaner as the longer we stayed the less the cleaning they did but all in all it was a good choice. Just to note the coffee shop has free wifi but the rooms are cable internet and you pay per min with a max per day. r

My stay at Rayfont Downtown was very pleasant. The hotel was easy to find and it was much nicer in real life than in photos. We were also very glad that the hotel took our special requests (high floor, no-smoking) seriously. The only downside was there's no wifi available. It is located near Sun Moon Light Plaza where you can find SO MANY delicious food options. Also nearby is Tian Zi Fang where you can find many cafes and cool shops.

It is huge and high floor. The suite comes with living room and kitchen. The hotel is walkable to the metro station as well as many shopping malls at the corner.

Great value for money”

I was here for the Shanghai Masters tennis tournament, but I didn't want to stay out all the way in Minhang (which is a bit removed from the city). The Rayfront Hotel was perfect: great location to the line 9 Dapuqiao station, which has many eating places in the station and a shopping area. The hotel was good: comfortable bed, clean room, good WiFi, good bathroom with hot shower that had great pressure. Just to let you know they do require a 200 RMB deposit, but it is returnable at the end of your stay if you return the ticket that they give. This is the second time I've stayed at Rayfront Hotel, and I will do so again.

This lovely hotel only minutes by taxi from the shopping centre was an absolute joy. The friendly staff were very helpful and from the first minute i was made to feel welcome. The room was only a single but was still spacious and well designed. With its balcony you got a feeling of space. It also came with a fridge which was great considering there was a Tesco supermarket directly over the road. I spent 10 nights in this room and could not fault it. The added better of the gym really added to my stay. Whenever i needed assistance everything went really well. In general i would happily stay there many times. Thanks for a lovely time in Shanghai

Cost, friendly staff, view at night from balcony, location
No Business center, room size, Shower leaked

The view of shanghai has never looked as magnificent as it did from the room balcony. This hotel is located near everything you might want in terms of shopping and restaurants. The sightseeing in Shanghai is limited unless you are willing to take a bus trip to places close like Zhouzhuang for the cannaled city. Peoples square, Yu Garden and the Bund are all easily accessible by both train, bus or taxi. I find Busses cheapest but they are yet to be made tourist friendly as all stops are in Chinese and no announcements are made so you need to be aware of where you wish to travel, however you can reach a lot of places as there are hundreds of busses and travel very regularly
