Royal International Hotel

Reviewed 27 April 2017

It was not too far from the airport. We got there late at night and we were very pleasantly surprised. It was not a new place but it was beautiful. The room was really nice, in the bathroom they keep shampoos, conditioners,toothbrushes toothpaste, etc. There were slippers, and a refrigerator with free water. There was free wi-fi. A tremendous breakfast buffet was included in the price. There was soup with noodles with meats and whatever vegetables you wanted, eggs, all types of vegetable and meat dishes, coffee and all types of breads and desserts. Everyone tried to help us. The only thing that was wrong is that no one spoke english. Only Chinese people come to this hotel. It was very far from the city, but there were tons of restaurants, mostly noodle restaurants and dim sum restaurants. We made our own entertaiment. Everyone was really helpful once I found an app on my kindle which translated everything I needed into chinese. Loved the place.

Room Tip: I do not know, our room was very confortable, and I think all the rooms are the same.

We had the opportunity to stay at the Royal International Hotel while on route to Hong Kong. This hotel is all class. The rooms are quite large and very well appointed - you just need to give yourself time to work out the various buttons and switches for curtains, lights, etc. The rooms are completely darkened if you want to enjoy the extra sleep before the late flight. The staff were very friendly and helpful considering they were dealing with cranky travellers arriving late after a long day. The staff made the end of our day calm and relaxing. The breakfast was huge with a wide variety of food to to suit the Asian and Western tastes. We will stay here again for our next visit to Shanghai as it is still close enough to the centre of town without the painful price tag! We had trouble with our taxi drivers knowing exactly where the hotel is so make sure you have the address clearly written in Chinese. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.

I booked this hotel thru booking.com just 30 mins before we checked in. Took them about 30 mins to figure out my reservation but it was understandable. Walk-in price for executive double room is RMB 2080 but with the booking we only paid RMB 990. They will charge you for deposit which you will get back when you check out. Staffs are extra friendly and the breakfast is amazing! Both Asian meals and Western meals are provided. We went there by taxi and the fare was RMB 50. Going to the airport was a bit more expensive, RMB 70.
