It is a convenient travel hotel with reasonably good breakfast. If you like Salsa dancing it is there every weekend. Koreans and Expats would be found enjoying dancing. The lobby is small but relatively well designed. Have a drink there in the evening at the lobby bar was a treat. Comfort Music is available.

Room Tip: Ask higher floors to avoid noise at lobby during weekend

Just stayed at the Pentahotel Shanghai for 3 nights. The standard rooms are very small and the bathrooms are tiny. I mean like straddle the toilet to shut the door tiny. This was very inconvenient with two of us trying to get ready in the morning.

The room itself was nice and clean but very sparse, no drawers or enclosed closet. Though it had a nice counter with a chair to give you a little area to store stuff under.

The Pentalounge was very nice with a fun youthful atmosphere. Great food, drinks, and a very western friendly atmosphere. Service was good, most of the front desk and lounge staff spoke fluent English which was helpful.

The Pentalounge was definitely the highlight. We were just at the end of long two week trip so we didn't have much time or energy to enjoy the lounge at night but they had some pretty good drink specials and happy hour times that looked like fun.

Definitely a western hipster type place. Our friend who stayed at the hotel as well joked she was too old to stay here, she's in her 50s.

I would stay again at the hotel but would want the slightly larger room type next time and definitely would try to take advantage of the Pentalounge in the evening.

The property adjoins the New World Hotel Shanghai which is a very nice luxury hotel, for the grownups I think. They have shared amenities so a Pentahotel guest you can use the pool and other amenities at the New World Hotel.

The Penta team are always very friendly and welcoming and recognise you are a regular in Shanghai.
The food in the bar is always good and the choice is wide. A really friendly hotel.
Thanks Penta team for making me feel at home.

We had a short team retreat during a weekend break for a client project. We were from mourned the world and never been to Shanghai before. The Penta Hotel was close to a good Metro stop, easy area to find things to do (CrossFit, Starbucks, biking). The staff was helpful during the breakfast crush. A bit of street noise at night but nothing bad and the price was the best we found for the level of amenities.

Room Tip: we got a 14th floor suite and had a great view

I have stayed at Pentahotel Shanghai twice now and the reason for returning there has been the hotel itself and its great location. I really like this hotel and I think it offers good value for money when you can catch one of the discounted room prices. However, the customer service at the front desk is always very poor. It takes ages to check in or to check out and the front desk staff is just not friendly and I always feel like the hotel has recruited totally wrong people in the customer facing positions. I think the hotel would do much better if they paid more attention to choosing the staff in these key positions that give the first impression of the hotel.
