Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 June 2017

Some of the reviews worried me a bit - that the bathroom would be too small, that the room wouldn't be that comfortable, that it would be too loud at night (I am a light sleeper). I had no problems with any of that. The room was great, the bed was super-comfortable, the bathroom was completely fine, and I didn't hear anything at night. This hotel also has a super location by the metro and some good dining options, and for the price I paid it was a fantastic value. I really enjoyed my stay.

The one critique that was correct is that the free internet is not reliable. The first night night it worked great. The second night it sometimes worked and sometimes didn't, and even when it did work, it wasn't fast enough to keep my VPN connection. And I do think that, in this day and age, reasonably fast wifi should be a basic amenity.

But that does not change my overall very positive opinion of the hotel. It was a nice room for a great price in a great location, so I would stay here again 100 times out of 100.

nice hotel in modern style located in the center of Shanghai's ZhongShan Park district. We always had breakfast outside because there are so many kinds of restaurants everywhere - especially we preferred Dim-Sum or fried Wantan in the morning. Many shops and restaurants, a huge shopping-center and the metro-station lines 2 + 3 + 4 at ZhongShan-Park are only some minutes away. Nice rooms, reasonable prices, good service, free WiFi, free bicycles - everyhing was perfect ! CAN BE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!

I have stayed at the Penta many times when in Shanghai for both work and leisure. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a very convenient location with the metro around the corner. The surrounding area is full of good value restaurants and the Yue Restaurant on the 2nd floor of the hotel serves excellent Cantonese food. Zhongshan Park across the road from the hotel is interesting with many locals enjoying the outdoors including older Chinese couples dancing together in the afternoons and evening. I have always felt very safe in this area which is important as a woman travelling alone.

Room Tip: Pentaplus rooms offer more space

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
