A Luxury Hotel with Heart warming welcome Sep 16, 2011
Sofitel Hyland Hotel Shanghai is situated on Shanghai's No. 1 pedestrain shopping Street, Nanjing Road. It is exactly in the heart of the city. It is 10 minutes walk to The Bund and very close to many of interesting place. You have just walk straight from the walking street to the end of another road and then you will find the Bund. We walk there and back. Only one thing is a lot of people in walking street and I am annoying with the visitor train which running in walking street (but this is nothing to do with the hotel).

If you stay in Executive Floor, you will enjoy a Sofitel Club on the 30th Floor both for breakfast & evening happy hour (drink & snacks). The service staff will turn around to offer you a tasteful snacks, i.e. chinese dumpling, finger foods, etc. In the morning, the foods are display both on the stand and in a la carte (for eggs, congee, etc.).

Bed, with the concept of Sofitel bed, I can't find any other word to explain how comfy my sleep was.

In the bathroom, the amenities are green (Eau d'Orange Verte) HERMES brand. I took one extra soap home :-) (I know it's bad, but I can't help it).

The room was very clean, we were upgraded to Executive Suite Floor, the services are top. Mr. Karl, the General Manager, are welcoming us personally that make me feel a very VIP indeed.

Only few things is the hot water is too hot and in room services menu is too many of örganics things (I know it good for health but feel a little too much with everything organic).

I definitely will go back to stay at Sofitel Hyland Shanghai again.

Great all round hotel Aug 15, 2011
I have stayed in this hotel 3 times now and will be staying again for 3 upcoming visits in the coming weeks. It is a great hotel - the staff are extremely considerate and friendly. The service is very good throughout the entire hotel.

The 30th floor is the executive floor - a very good breakfast in the morning (fruit is fresh and a la cart is available) and the happy hour each evening is also very good (drinks and snacks).

The hotel is a very good location - easy to get to from the airport (bullet train (Maglev) to the metro, 4 or 5 stops on the metro then a one block walk to the hotel). It is on East Nanjing Road which is a very big pedestrian street (lots of shopping). People's Square and the Bund are both 10 minute walks from the hotel. On the negative, be prepared to be constantly approached by people trying to sell you something or to visit the markets on the side streets.

I can easily recommend this hotel as a great place to stay.

Lovely Hotel in Downtown Shanghai Aug 20, 2009
I thoroughly enjoyed my five night stay at the Sofitel Hyland in Shanghai in September of 2008. It is conveniently located on Nanjing Road East which is the very large shopping district in Shanghai, in walking distance to the Shanghai Museum, Peoples Square and the Museum for Planning and Development. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. The room I had was smaller than expected but quite adequate for myself. The buffet breakfast is quite nice with a large assortment of Western and Chinese fare . The baguettes were great. Well, it is a French-owned hotel. I frequented the buffet dinner. I found it a bit pricey and not a lot to choose from. However, the desserts were very good. My only negative would be the hordes of people wanting to offer to sell you goods as soon as you walk out of the hotel being that it is directly on Nanjing Road.

Best Location Aug 19, 2007
It’s impossible to find a better location to the hotel, right in Nanjing road, halfway from the Bund and People’s square, both at walking distance.

It’s impossible to have a complaint about the room or breakfast, all deserving the five stars.

We had no time to test other facilities of the hotel, the only slight disappointment being dinner.

We had a light dinner, and paid… too much. I remember that we were not in the best mood at the time, but the menu was… frustrating, and it didn’t help.
