We stayed here for five nights and loved the experience mainly for its location and accessibility.

Immediate connection to IFC mall on through the 3rd floor exit door was really useful. Line 2 metro also accessible from mall basement.

Service was good - I had three or four parcels sent to the hotel via courier and all parcels were delivered into my room directly. Request for late check out at 1pm was acceded to immediately. Front desk staff gave advice on high speed railway booking (though they don’t do the booking on behalf). Breakfast service staff were polite and fast.

Breakfast on the other hand, was average. We had almost the same food every morning and got bored pretty quick. Thankfully there’s baker and spice amongst other cafes in IFC mall.

Coffee and biscuits are available free throughout the day on the third floor, which we appreciate, as it made for an intimate afternoon coffee break.

We stayed in both the 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and were happy. Both rooms came with a small kitchenette armed with induction cookers, a small hood, fridge and freezer, oven, washing machine, decent kitchen tap, kettle, dish washing liquid and all necessary cutlery.
1 tv in the living room, 1 tv in the bedroom and 1 tv in the toilet (in front of tub)!!! All rooms open up to high rise skyscraper city view, with perhaps a view of the orient also pearl tower from a corner.

Facilities were wonderful - proper gym equipped with new technogym equipment. Yoga room. Shallow large pool (says heated but it’s really room temperature) and a small jacuzzi pool which was really heated). Pool area overlooks the bund; you get small snippets of river views. Towels, lounge chairs, swimming caps, showers provided.

Very happy with the stay. Will be back.

This is our second stay after 4 years away from Shanghai. And next time we will stay there again because it is so convenient that it felt like a home. Positives: great bed, ample storage space, comfortable good size rooms, washer toilet, stocked kitchen. If you want anything, more bowls, more towels, etc, just ask and it comes in 20 minutes or less. Staff was friendly and happy, friendlier and happier than 4 years ago.

Downside for some people: the walk from the subway through the mall, while beautiful, is long, not everyone at the front desk speaks English well, and the body wash made me itchy so I had to buy my own.

The cleaning staff was very good, and the views were great even though some days the outside AQI was high. Complimentary coffee, tea and even hot milk in the morning, sodas in the afternoon, plus tasty snacks from 11 am until after 2.

Public transportation is so convenient from the IFC, that meeting friends from all over Shanghai was easy. And just walking outside at night was beautiful.

We brought our own washcloth (other hotels in China don't always have them either) and our own top sheet (but if we had asked, they would have supplied one, I think).

We always ask for a high floor and get it, but because of a flight nightmare we had to return for one night and got the 17th floor which was high enough but also had stronger water pressure, which we like. Next time we will ask for the 17th floor. We stayed in a one bedroom, but next time we may ask for a deluxe because we'd like the extra desk.

Exit 10 from airport puts you the same side as street entrance for IFC exit 8 has you in mall and follow the signs
Ifc was lovely affordable digs we loved the apartment feel and washing machine so handy. Staff lovely and rooms clean and spacious. Water temp great and fancy toilet. Bed huge and lovely. We had great views. Wifi was crap but reception Nam fixed it for me. Good location to sights and a fancy mall. Supermarket in basement but pricey. Sadly no bar
Gym and pool great
I'd come back and as others noted you need to lifts to get to rooms
Breakfast decent
Eastern fare better than west

This time i was staying at the IFC residence for 2 nights for some meetings in shanghai. I have visited shanghai more than 50 times but never been able to find that perfect area that i can stay each and every time, but this hotel still manages to be one of the locations i can decide upon quickly over the others.

The hotel is well located as in Annexe to the IFC mall. This makes it convenient for guests to access anything and everything that the mall has to offer. But it doe snot have a seven eleven / economically prices grocery shopping store near the hotel.

The hotel has several exit to Lujiazui station but i have seen several of my chinese business people coming to visit me at the hotel not able to find the location / correct entrance to the hotel very easily.

I booked the base category room and it was on level 6, though the view was (Nothing) but since it was only 2 days, i kind of settled in it.

We did not opt for the breakfast this time. We have had it in the past, its a very basic breakfast.

Perfect location in Pudong , Shanghai with the same location with IFC Mall
The Lujiazui Metro Station is just at level B2 of IFC Mall, which is very convenient.
Very near to Shanghai Tower, Superbrand Mall, Oriental Pearl Tower, Jin Mao Tower.

Staff are very helpful and friendly.

The gym is quite good with indoor warm swimming pool.

Excellent location with convenient access to IFC Mall via connecting walkways. However, the interior of the two-bedroom apartment appears dated and could benefit from a refurbishment. The staff at reception were very professional and made check-in a breeze.

I live at IFC for almost one year during my commuting with Switzerland..from the pandemic days of Oct 22 till Sep23. Amazing location, wonderful view, all comforts of a modern service apartment, with kind and friendly stuff, in a top spot! The terrace is unique and view from rooms unforgettable…Feeling home, 9000km far from home…

The hotel is just adjacent to IFC mall which houses all sorts of Luxury shops, also the residence is at a stones throw to Oriental pearl tower. The hotel is also very close to metro station Line 7.

I liked the room which i stayed in, the staff was warm and hospitable.
The issue i had with was slow service and poor english.

Further, the walk from reception to Lobby and then crossing the entire lobby to reach the other side of the elevator is very cumbersome.
