I GO TO CHINA EVERY YEAR,LESS FREQUENTLY TO SHANGHAI. THIS IS MY 43RD TRIP TO CHINA! THIS HOTEL IS IDEAL BY IT'S LOCATION, VALUE FOR MONEY AND CHARMING QUARTIER. I'VE HAD BOTH STANDARD AND DELUXE ROOMS AND WAS MORE THAN SATISFIED WITH BOTH. FORMERLY THERE WAS A LANGUAGE PROBLEM FOR ENGLISH ONLY TRAVELERS, BUT THIS YEAR THERE WAS PROGESS THERE ALSO. UNQUALIFIED AND ENTHUSIASTIC RECOMENDATION! L.-M. J.

It was indeed a splendid hotel with all the historical background and the strategic location right smack in the middle of the Old Shanghai tourist centre. For me.. it was strategic because it was near two mosques... to enable me to join the Chinese Fasting month activities.

If anything that could be improved further :
a. Invest on changing the floor carpet for the room and the hallways
b. Train all the staff to be able to converse in English.

I will sure come back to The Shanghai Classical Hotel , the next time I am in Shanghai.

Best wishes

"Great location"

We stayed in the deluxe room - it was definitely 3 star standard but very well located. it is the only hotel in the centre of Shanghai Old area town. The hotel is very clean and safe with all the basic facilities you would need in a hotel room- including free internet. The staff were very friendly and helpful - they gave us directions a few times and organised an early morning taxi for us. On the 2 floors below the hotel are very well know authentic Chinese Restaurants. alternatively if you have had your full of Chinese food by this stage there is the usual aray of "western" fast food restaurants in the area. The markets are literally across the road from the hotel. The famous Yu Yuan Gardens 2 min. walk away. i would highly recommend the Shanghai Classic hotel for it's location and very affordable rates (preferably upgrade to there hughest catagory room).

This place is fabulous. Original period furnishings in the room, attentive staff. Breakfast is very Chinese, which is either to your liking or not, but if not, what are you doing in Shanghai? Highly recommended for the somewhat adventurous traveler.

Like the area and vintage feel of the hotel was pretty cheap so wasnt expecting much. The streets around it are cool. Rooms were ok carpets were dirty. Staff didn't speak too much english so difficult to order stuff. Would stay there again for the price.

Unser Aufenthalt im Shanghai Classical Hotel war ganz in Ordnung, bis auf die Lautstärke. Haben gleich nach dem Einchecken noch einmal das Zimmer gewechselt, weil das Fenster zur Straße ging und man die Geräusche von unten ziemlich laut hören konnte. Das andere Zimmer war vermeindlich leiser und hatte dafür nur ein Zimmer zum nicht sehr ansehnlichen Innenhof/Veranda. Bezüglich Lautstärke wurden wir am folgenden Morgen eines besseren belehrt... Gespräche aus den Nebenzimmern/des Personals waren störend laut zu hören

Ansonsten war das Zimmer sauber. Das Personal war freundlich und hat schnell auf Anfragen reagiert. Der Wäscheservice hat auch einwandfrei geklappt. Der Zimmersafe hat leider nicht funktioniert, was uns aber nicht so gestört hat. Das Frühstück war ganz ok, wenn auch beim Western Breakfast eine Variation der einzigen Marmeladesorte nicht geschadet hätte ;)

WLAN gab's nur in der Lobby (gratis), aber immerhin.
