We didn’t know what to expect for the price as it was quite low
Considering all the amenities that were listed. What a great spot! Pool is lovely! Staff very helpful, even when an idiot decided they would smoke in the non-smoking room and leave their door opened the staff responded quickly. Sadly though, we had guests on either side of our room that again smoked into the wee hours of the morning. That’s the only thing that perhaps ruined our stay, but was nothing on the hotel as it was ignorant guests who did that.

I have to say that we weren’t sure what to expect when coming here as the price was so reasonable. However, this is one of the best hotels we’ve stayed in. The service was excellent and the facilities clean and well looked after. The outdoor pool was fabulous.

My one comment would be to provide more parasols around the pool for the Shanghai heat.

Would happily stay here again.

Stayed at Purple Mountain for about 10 days in March 2005 while in Shanghai for a trade show and a little tourist time. Located in Pudong, it was pretty convenient to the New Shanghai Expo Center, about 10 to 30 minutes depending on traffic. This is a huge benefit vs. hotels on the other side of the River in old Shanghai. It is a good location for a business hotel.

I didn't find it difficult to get across the river for restaurants, sightseeing, or other activities. Taxis very cheap and prompt. Local shopping, etc. not as good as on other side though.

The hotel is very nice. Rated 5 stars by Chinese Tourism and I would classify it as nice as most Hyatt, Westin, Radisson, etc. hotels in most cities. However, not to the scale of 4 Seasons, Grand Hyatt, et. al. Probably not a 5 star hotel though. Rooms dark wood and rich and very nice. Restaurant excellent for breakfast and very good for dinner. Served Western and Asian foods. I did not get to try the Chinese Restaurants in the hotel. There were some excellent Chinese restaurants nearby that worked great for us when we were with our local hosts. The business center was very good. However, in room broadband was very slow. I don't think that was the hotel's fault but do to local internet service. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Lastly, the rate was quite a value compared to most hotels of comparable amenities. I only paid $120 night which I found to be quite a bargain.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of April. The hotel itself is new, high quality, 5 star establishment. Rooms are decorated to a high standard. The breakfast/ lunch buffet is excellent.

Note - pool does not open until June & DongFang metro station is closed for about 6 months. This means there is a 15 minute walk from the the nearest metro. You can always take a cab into town but beware it took us 50 minutes to get to the Bund due to traffic at midday. You are better off getting a cab to a metro station.

There is also construction on new buildings nearby (we did not notice any noise as the work was just starting)

Probably not ideal for tourist until metro is back up and running apart from that would recommend.

I stayed in Sept. 2005 for business and found the hotel a superb place overall. My room on the 39th floor had a great view. It was nicely furnished and came with a large TV. The bathroom was good size and nicely appointed. The breakfast buffet offered good selections, and the staff was helpful. The "broadband" Internet connection is excruciatingly slow -- like a dial up service in the U.S. The hotel is great for business travelers, but if you are in Shanghai purely as a tourist, you don't need the amenities or pay for the price of Purple Mountain.

I am staing in the Purple mountian for a couple of days august 2005. The place is good and offeres all services you´d expect of a 5*. I paid a special rate of 135 USD, which is still a lot for Shanghai standard. You can get a good 4*-place for half that plrice that offers everything needed (gymnn, internet etc. is standard in all 4 * i ve seen up to now). A partcularity is the swimmignpool on the roof of the 5th floor - very nice view.

Even worse- everything is very expensive here, laundry is triple price comapred to others (45RMB for a shirt instead of 10/15 in 4* places i staid before), I paid 45 RMB (4.5 Euro) for a very bad expresso, 120 RMB per day for internet (free or cheap in many 4*).

Food is OK, but comparable or better Chinese or Japanese food you ll find in the small places that you ll find all over Shanghai(where you can eat for 50-70 yuan a full meal in a nice place, as i did yesterday, even alone withe same improvisation. Quite a few of the upper class restaurants have enlish menues or pictures on the menu ). The only catch is the breakfast ... 4* places often have chinese breakfast only (which is a hot meal of rice and meat and fish, reasonable coffee is available though).

So to my conclusion if you have somebody that can help you to get around and order food, or if you like the adventure of ordering food in China... better stay in a 4 *.

Stayed at the Purple Mountain on 21 Apr 05 while the Shanghai Auto Show was going on. Due to the auto show most of the hotels in Pudong were fully booked. The Executive room at the Purple Mountain was of 5* quality, but very expensive at 1660rmb plus a 249rmb surcharge. This equates to about $230 for one night, which is over priced. I was also charged 57rmb for internet, which I did not use. Beautiful property, excellent room & above average buffet breakfast. But, too expensive.

The hotel itself is all right. Definitely not 5 stars had it been in the US, but then it´s a so called "Chinese five star hotel."

Be aware of the bad guys outside of the hotel. They are really persistent and offer you prostitutes all day long (if you´re a man, that is).

If you get annoyed by those guys (Shanghai mafia / pimps) and if you tell them to get lost, they will still follow you. In the end I told them that I would call the Chinese police hotline (btw, 110), but their response was that the police was their friends. And if you get aggressive, their response will be brutal (be aware)!

Well, I don´t know whether to recommend the hotel or not. Their hotel accommodation prices are decent, but walking by the the "great wall of pimps" to get there is not so pleasant. By the way, I didn´t see a single hooker there - only pimps!

I visited this hotel for the new year's holiday with my boyfriend this january and was delighted to find that this hotel was so modern and well-appointed. It was my first visit to shanghai, so I had no expectations since i did not know anything about the hotel other than the fact that my boyfriend's mother had stayed at the same hotel on a recent trip. Upon entering the huge lobby, I was surprised to find a massively decked out christmas tree with a banner reading, "Merry Christmas." I didnt think communism and christmas were compatible but, apparently, they are. During check-in, the receptionist was very friendly and quickly upgraded us to an executive room on the highest floor. Upon entering our room, we were impressed by the contemporary dark hard wood floors, modern decor, and immaculate bathroom. The room was smaller than expected and there was no actual wall dividing the bathroom from the bedroom area, just a curtain, which could have been a serious privacy problem for some people, but the bed was very comfortable with a great mattress, super soft sheets, and a plush down comforter. I highly recommend the breakfast buffet (included in our room rate) for their fabulous selection of eastern and western delicacies, but the dinner selections leave much to be desired, are quite expensive, and are better left undiscovered. The staff are very helpful and friendly when approached, but they do not hover, so some may interpret this as disinterest. Overall, the experience was very pleasant, with the exception of a very bizarre incident, in which a foot masseuse, who worked for the hotel, followed us up to our room and barged in because we payed for the massage by charging it to our room rather than paying cash as she preferred. We had to call the concierge to talk to her in order to get her out of our room! Crazy lady! Moral of the story: great hotel, great amenities, just don't get a foot massage.

In stayed there during an exhibition. The level is good in general. The equipment in the bathroom would need some renovation. Breakfast ok.
At the SPA don't be surprised if you get offers for "specials". If you say no you will not have troubles. But I am not used to China yet and the feeling is special.
If you need a cab the concierge will help but it can be you will habe to wait long. If you try on the street perhaps the taxi will not want to take you or will ask for phantasy price. Example to the international exhibition 100 RMB instead of 30 - 35 with meter. If you know any chine people ask that they order a cab for you via their Didi platform. Much more efficient and reliable!
