Reviewed 27 January 2014

Well organized place central to business and shopping area. Nice breakfast, but beware of the black tea, which tastes of chlorine. Heating/ air conditioning in some rooms can be difficult to adjust, and tends to be noisy ( and so is leaving your window open).

Local taxi will charge you around 220 RMB from Pu Dong Airport. It was quite easy to find because of nearest landmark like Jing an temple. Had a great stay for 4 nights. Location is really the USP of this hotel. 1 minute walk to Subway/Metro. You can roam around nearest brand outlets and fake super markets in nanjing road....

Swissotel Shanghai Grand is well-located near the main tourist attractions and shopping malls, I enjoyed my stay at the hotel tremendously, that is once I got myself oriented. Initially had some difficulty trying to locate the hotel upon arrival (via Maglev, then alight at subway line 2's "Jing An station". Takes less than 45 minutes one-way to/from Pudong airport), only...

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
