"The hotel building looks old from the outside but the rooms seems to have been renovated not that long ago and seems new. For the price, I think you will be mostly satisfied with this hotel even though of course there will be better hotels in Shanghai at a higher price. The staff are polite and efficient even though communications in English may be difficult for them but that is a problem you will encounter in many places in Shanghai."

"It was my first time to stay at CitizenM. Location is convenient that it was closed to a huge shopping mall (about 5 mins walk). Suitable for business traveller and people who would like to explore the Hongqiao dist. as it’s closed to National Convention Centre and Hongqiao airport. A young and energetic hotel that brighten our trip in Shanghai. The room surprised me as it was very smart that I could customise lights, AC, blinds, media via an iPad. In addition, I liked how the bathroom used aircraft-like materials and looked very refreshing. We had a lot of fun staying at citizenM with its facilities and its artistic interior design and ornaments. The breakfast was also delicious and my friends and I loved it! Would recommend it to friends and family. "

"I have been looking for a hotel in Shanghai to replace my standard bearer, which is no longer open. I discovered the Radisson. Great location, easy to get a taxi and excellent accommodations and service. The only negative was the slow internet, which I experienced at hotels throughout China."

"I arrived really late on May 1 and booked a room here. I booked at around 1145 pm May 1 via Agoda but due to wifi issues in Pudong Airport, my transaction was completed at past 12 am which resulted in my booking being dated May 2 instead. I took a cab to the hotel and upon my arrival, the hotel staff despite their limited English skills did their best to assist and accommodate me after I explained to them my situation. The room was spacious and the beds in them were, fluffy. Value for money. I would have loved to stay longer and check out late if not for some important engagements in downtown Shanghai. Aircon was strong too."

"Booked this place in 2 min as I was next in line for the transit immigration officer and wanted to have a place to show. I am glad I did instead of booking the higher end places. The hotel has the best location I could ask for, 2 blocks from MRT in central Bund walking distance to Nanjing Lu and to all nightlife in the neighborhood. Moreover the room was quite comfortable, I was coming from Hong Kong and this felt like a 5 starts compared to those shitty hotels in Central. The staff also was super friendly and even bumped me up in the hotel. This is now my default place to stay at Shanghai and I look forward to the next time."

"I am from Hong Kong and went to Shanghai from 28/11 - 1/12 for a business trip aim at attending an exhibition at Shanghai NECC. The location of hotel is excellent, just less than 10 mins walk (simply cross over a bridge) and you will arrive NECC. I had a lot of wonderful experiences when staying at the executive floor. For the breakfast buffet, you will be directed to a separated dining room inside executive lounge, and you could choose the food from buffet area and A La Carte menu. You could also use the facilities in business centre for free. For the room, you could also pick a special favor of pillow to sleep. Staff in general is very polite and pleasant, especially I could feel that the supervisors/ managers delivered professional services to the guests. I would also like to make a compliment to William and his fellow colleague Evelyn inside Executive Lounge. They are so kind and just like a close friend of mine; giving me and my family a warm welcome every morning at breakfast time. Chatting with them was the most enjoyable part of my stay in this hotel. They also helped me to solve a problem in related to my business matter promptly. Rooms for improvement to the hotel: - Except the restaurants inside NECC, there is insufficient dining place nearby the hotel and the guests could just dine at the hotel restaurants. However, there is only one restaurant inside the hotel and always full (dinner time) during exhibition period. I was told to go to the 2 restaurants at Primus Hotel (these 2 hotels are in the same group) which is just opposite to the Qube Hotel. However, one restaurant at Primus Hotel was full as well; and the other buffet restaurant serves nearly the same food as the Qube Hotel. The guests have little / or even no choice. - There is room for improvement for the junior staff at the reception of dinner buffet restaurant. In one night, I went there to ask for a table for three, and a junior staff told me it was full and might b"

"I booked the hotel for my family and friends on their way to my wedding in China. Despite a lot of confusion over the bookings, and a mistake on the part of the hotel, they were very accommodating and solved the problem quickly. The art deco design of the hotel is interesting and historic, and the rooms were larger than I expected given it's central location. They didn't have breakfast included in our bookings, which was disappointing, but they are extremely convenient to street breakfast, Starbucks, and other nicer places to eat (for other meals as well). Their convenient location to Line 2 made for an easy transition between Pudong airport, Hongqiao airport/train station, and Shanghai Railway station, as well as easy access to sites and nightlife on Line 1, and minimal taxi rides to other locations. It's also a comfortable and enjoyable walk to the Bund. All-in-all, I think this hotel, booked at about 100 USD per room (both twin/double were more or less the same price), was well worth the price based on it's great service, fantastic location, and comfortable accommodations."

"Architecture and history buffs will love Bund Circle and spend hours researching its four spledid Art Deco buildings. The hotel interior is renovated 'Art Deco' - need I say more? - but the room we had was spacious and very well-appointed. The staff were very helpful indeed. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from East Nanjing Road metro station, that has connections to Pudong Airport and Hongqiao Airport and Railway Station. We can't comment on the hotel's dining room as we prefer to eat out. Down the road are local dumpling and noodle restaurants, and in the next block is Shanghai Grandmother - a bright and cheerful restaurant that sells authentic local food to tourists - not many Europeans, most tourists in China are Chinese. For many people, Jiangsu cuisine is China's finest, with its subtle, harmonious flavours and gentle (in Shanghai, not so gentle) sweetness. And next door is 'House of Blues and Jazz', a fantastic late night out - bands play from around 9.30. 50RMB cover charge"
