A really nice hotel with extremely nice people.
Our room was super clean but furniture is perhaps a bit dated.
The area is great as a starting point for exploring Shanghai.
All in all, an excellent value for money and would return.

We chose the J.J. Metropole Hotel mostly because of its location and stayed there for 8 nights (check-in: July, 6 2013). This historic hotel (1930s architecture) is located at the junction of Fuzhou and Jiangxi Roads and is a 5-minute walk from The Bund and the shopping belt of Nanjing Road. People's Square is a 20-minute walk away, East Nanjing Road metro station is a 10-minute walk away.

The hotel is a piece of history and part of heritage trail in modern Shanghai. It was built in 1930 by Mr Saxon, the chairman of the Jewish Federation, as a birthday present for his favorite daughter. The Art Deco Lobby exudes old-world charm with gilded spiral stairs; original, intricately carved pillars; and a revolving lobby door. A few original lamps from the 1930s and several ornately carved pillars are from the original architecture.

No doubt the Hotel “first-impression” areas, Lobby and Lobby Bar, are really “impressive”. But don't be fooled by first impression it goes downhill when you get out of the lifts on allocated floor! Hotel’s website and poster advertisements say that “guestrooms come in a variety of styles including some with Victorian décor (!) and others with teak furnishings”. Our Standard Twin Room # 414 on the fourth floor, with view over the next building wall, was very dated and a bit crappy: carpeting old and stained; furniture almost threadbare; the beds rather hard. It looks like nobody pay attention to customer’s requests: we asked for the standard double room (with “no smoking” option) and somehow got standard twin room (with ashtray on the table). I am aware that hotel advertising is a highly competitive area, as every hotel wants to capture the attention (and the money) of leisure travelers but it must be at least truthful and non-deceptive.

Honestly the J.J. Metropole Hotel reminded me the hotel service in my own country in post-Soviet period. The staff is not smiling at all… and problem is not because they barely speak English. Whenever you talk to them and ask them it makes you feel like you interrupt them from doing some “extremely important” task. It’s obvious… smiling, happy staff is one of management's most important assets in the hospitality industry. Excellent communication is a vital issue…, because customers are paying not only for the product – the food, the room or the facilities – they are also paying for the service. And service is just as much about communication as it is about skill…

To be fair house-keeping is good and rooms are featuring all necessary amenities like air-conditioning, TVs, freezer mini-bar. There are tea/coffee facilities. Complimentary Internet is evaluable in the ground floor, and additional surcharge applies for high-speed Internet access for use in the room.

A credit card is required to secure your reservation and during check in full deposit will be charged (!). This is standard operation procedure for majority hotels in China.

One thing is true for this hotel; it represents value for money and one of the cheapest in Huangpu District. We paid 2,569.60 Chinese Yuan ( = US$420.00) for 8 nights including service charge (10%). So, “if you are just looking for a bed to sleep in so you can maximise your shopping and sight-seeing it will do the job”…

Arrived at the Metropole after a short walk from Middle Henan Road metro station. It was very humid, so the doorman helping me up the steps with my case was welcomed. Check in was simple, however there is a 400 Yuan deposit for the room key, which we didnt know about. The room was comfy, with moderate decor. My only complaints would be these: the drinking water provided was in a small dispenser, the difference between cold and hot water was very slight which meant using it for anything but tea was out of the question. Don't dispair because the minibar is cheap, 6 yuan for a coke or a beer, and just round the corner is an alldays convinience store for bottled water. Also the constant sound of car horns was a bit annoying but you soon get used to it. We were on the 12th floor so the view was ok. My tip for photos would be to go to the top of the fire escape staircase. There is a great view of The Bund and Pudong's skyline. Be sure to visit Yuyuan Gardens and Bazaar, short walk from the hotel, and have a stroll through the old town. I HIGHLY recommend Ajisen Ramen noodle resteraunt. They are everywhere ( 2 on Nanjing road alone) and the food is delicious. They have an English menu, a rarity, but make sure you have a basic knowledge in the art of chopstick use. Enjoy and feel free to ask me any questions; nathankempster@gmail.com. I will try my best to answer.

We were not given a choice of hotels as we deplaned in Shanghai. This is where we were taken. The bill that we each paid included three meals per day ( no options), a television, bed, and 2 bath towels and two hand towels for the 14-day quarantine period.

The hotel is located close to the bund where most toirist attractions can be reached very easily. The staff are very helpful and well versed in english. Rooms are clean and overall pretty good with the only minor complaont being that you can vastly differently sized rooms for the same price.
Breakfast is smaller but amazing with chinese as well as western options and great coffee.

We only stayed for one night because we arrived in Shanghai a day earlier than expected. We were given room that had a horrible view overlooking the middle part of the hotel, and we drew the curtains to block the view the entire time. We liked the wooden floor of the room and the comfortable bed, but the bathroom was a bit small and the entire hotel really needs some updating, especially the carpeting in the corridors which were torn and had stains. The only plus point is that the hotel is close to the Bund and there are lots of restaurants in the area.

This relatively affordable hotel is only a short 5 to 10 minute walk from the Bund and from the Nanjing shopping street. Not many hotels in Shanghai can combine affordability and Bund proximity like this.

The hotel has been impressively renovated so that the interior (although modern and luxurious) matches the 1930s art deco exterior. We are not particularly style conscious, but we were struck by how beautiful this hotel is. Not just the public areas either. Our room also gave us the feeling of being in a swank art deco hotel. Huge comfortable bed. Beautiful furniture. I don't want to exaggerate this too much but I also think it makes this hotel quite special. This is a hotel oozing character. They must have spent a fortune renovating it and furnishing it -- and yet again, it was not that expensive a room.

And finally the breakfast was exceptionally nice. A varied culinary selection from around the world, beautifully presented. Breakfast as art.

This hotel went to the trouble of offering its guests a free afternoon tea.

The reception staff provided excellent service. We wanted a room with a nice view, and they found one for us.

The downsides of the hotel (and there are always a few): the hotel had no pool at all and the gym was laughable. There is just no room for this in the hotel. It's an older building.

Also, in our room, there was a shower door leakage problem. Surely that is a problem just in our room, and not some flaw in the hotel. The bathroom itself is beyond gorgeous, and has the nicest toilet I've ever seen in a hotel.

Eventually this hotel is going to double its price.

Last Oct.27 to 30, I, along w/ my sister and my brother stayed in Metropole Shanghai. A travel agent booked a room for us. A TripAdvisor Member, York, England's review maybe true, but their experience may have been due to Expedia's negligence of their booking. Having stayed at Pan-Pacific Singapore and Holiday Inn HK, I found our Metrople Hotel room to be much nicer than the other hotels I've stayed in in the past. We got a corner room. Our room had two twin beds, a sofa set, coffee table, TV, wardrobe cabinet and fridge. Internet connection is also available. The hotel staff brought up an extra bed and there was still lots of space in the room to move about. (Note: When we stayed at Pan-pacific Singapore, the room was so small that when an extra bed wasbrought up, there was no where to go in the room but the beds) There were three sets of towels, toothbrushes and glasses for our use.

The bathroom/ toilet was a bit small, but hot water was always available. They served Chinese breakfast... as in pork buns, chinese noodles and fried rice - but to meet the reqirements of their Western clients, they served sausages and pastries too... Most of the guests were Europeans and Mexicans... I think we were the only Asians there.

Being in the corner of two busy streets, there was indeed a lot of noise... though our room was on the 7th floor. You can here the neighbors shouting... but I guess Chinese people are a bit loud. The hotel is just a block away from the Bund, Nanjing Road and Yu Yuan Garden. It's right in the middle of the best places in Shanghai.

The staff spoke very little English, but as I have told my sister, it would have been better if we have learned a little bit of Mandarin before we went there. We can't expect every Chinese to lear English. Another thing I noticed, their white towels were not white at all and you could see in the texture that they are old.

For a 3-star hotel, this hotel's service and ambience is exemplary. It has exceeded my expectations. The staff even tidies up the room twice a day... other hotels usually just do it in the mornings.

Arriving late at night in high humidity, we were just relieved to check in, so perhaps we're a little biased, but we were pleasantly surprised by the Metropole. Excellent location by the Bund and a short walk from the pedestrianised shopping area. Powerful air con units in rooms and shower not bad either. Admittedly the decor is a little dated but for the price I thought it was excellent. Shanghai does boast a lot of luxury hotels and while this isn't one of them, it provides a good base for a short stay. We were there two nights.

Best way to get there is get number five shuttle bus from the airport, then a short taxi from People's Square. Or a taxi the whole way (around an hour and a quarter) costs around 15-20 UKP.

The revolving door of Shanghai’s Metropole Hotel serves as a veritable time machine. One moment you’re outside, circumnavigating the thoroughfares of modern-day China; the next, you’re swathed in marble and serenaded by furtive jazz tunes that seem to come from nowhere and everywhere. You've entered another era.

If the Chrysler Building were magically beamed from Manhattan to Asia and transmuted into a hotel, the interior would probably look a lot like this. The 1930s embellishments gracing the elegant lobby are so fitting that you half expect to find Cary Grant or Claudette Colbert seated at the stylish bar, champagne cocktail in one hand, cigarette in the other. It’s a picture of sophistication.

From this first moment on, the Metropole does not disappoint. The front desk clerks are friendly and efficient, and those glamorous oversized paintings hanging behind them augment the impression that you’ve somehow stumbled into one of Hans Dreier’s art deco dreams. The rooms maintain the illusion, with streamlined features underscoring a sense of luxury and extravagance.

The Metropole was opened in 1934, designed by storied Palmer and Turner and touted as a sister to the famous Cathay Hotel on the Bund. The Cathay, of course, has since become the world-renowned Peace Hotel, while its sibling has faded into relative obscurity. But when you see it at night, bathed in glorious floodlights, you may well wonder if the masses have chosen the wrong property to shower with praise.

The location is pretty-near perfect. Nanjing East Station is a snappy six-minute walk away, while a quick stroll lands you right on the Bund itself. The staff is helpful in getting taxis if required, and there are good restaurants and bars within a block or two.

This was my second stay at the Metropole. I don’t think I’ll ever book anywhere else in Shanghai. And I’m already looking forward to my next visit, when that revolving door whisks me back to a lost world where the ghosts of the past still rub elbows with the tourists of today.
