Pacific Hotel Shanghai Reviews
In the middle of everything! Sep 05, 2012
Pacific Hotel or officially Jin Jiang Pacific Hotel Shanghai is in the middle of the city right next to the subway station (People's Square), People's Park itself and Nanjing Road. Not far from Bund and easy to reach Pudong by subway! Simply, the perfect situation! Oh, and two different city tour buses have a bus stop in front of the hotel!
The hotel looks old European style (Italian?), it's built about 100 years ago and in good condition. There are some stairs in front of the hotel but as long as you have two legs, it's okay. A funny mechanical roller door can be a bit tricky with a big suitcase too ;)
Obviously, the walls are thick and well built because I didn't hear anything from the neighbourhood. Air conditioner was a working one (thank good because it was like sauna out there!)
The only minus for this place could be the service. Due to the lack of language skills, I didn't get the best service available but I could manage. By the way, it was the same low standard in Chinese (my mate speaks Chinese pretty well).
About internet... they have only an old wired connection, which is a bit oldish in this era of ipads and iphones BUT they do have three wireless modem devices in the whole hotel! I got one :)
If somebody needs those little things, here's a small hint: it needs electricity! Turn out two little spikes inside the cube and find matching holes from the wall... (sigh)
Breakfast was not included of the room price. That's okay, there are a zillion restaurants in the neighbourhood! I had a good intention to visit the breakfast at hotel but somehow, I missed it.
Overall, I liked the place very much. I could go there another time.
