“Good place to stay for westerners”
Reviewed 5 April 2008

A less expensive hotel than the more familiar big brands, which offers a lot, although some things may be missing. This won't bother you if you are there for sleep, or work, however for leisure you might need to be happy heading out.

The interior is all very modern, the rooms are like new, and spacious. Some rooms don't have a bath, but just a walk in shower. There is a tv with limited english channels. No other entertainment. However the broadband access is free, via an ethernet port.

Outside the rooms note there is no swimming pool, but a small gym equipment room, and two pool tables.

There is a roof top bar, however it may only be open in summer, as it was closed (despite signs saying it is open). There is a ground floor starbucks, and many good places to eat nearby within walking distance.

Breakfast is available - a buffet of chinese and various western foods. Don't expect a continental or full english breakfast, but you will find something to suit you.

I have always stayed at the rear of the hotel, which is quiet.

Overall, a good western style hotel, particularly suited to business travellers.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mason Hotel in Shanghai. Although located on a busy shopping road (Huaihai road), in a town where the traffic is very noisy, the traffic noise in the room was acceptable (on the 7th floor). That was the only downside, explaining the less than perfect score. However, half the rooms (even numbers?) are on the other side of the hotel, which should be very quiet (not from experience) .
Room comfort and spaciousness was excellent, and far superior to what we got for double the price in Hong Kong, our subsequent stopover. Located in the heart of the elegant French Concession, and right above South Shaanxi metro station, with easy access to rest of city and right in the midst of many good services and tourist sights. There is a HSBC ATM next to the lobby.
The hotel interior has a clean, peacefull, elegant and modern feel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast facilities were excellent offering a mix of local and Western food.
Terrific value for money.
