Our favourite rooms
All rooms have the same serene palette, so it’s hard to choose a champion. Studio 90 rooms have impressive city views, though, and especially large bathrooms.
Pre-bed dip, anyone? The adults-only heated swimming pool is indoors, right next to the spa, and stays open until 11pm.
Get ready to feel amazing from the inside out. Mi Xun spa incorporates traditional Chinese medicine into treatments to detoxify and promote energy flows. In addition to facial and body treatments, the spa offers manicures and pedicures, and has a juice bar and tea shop.
Leave plenty of room for souvenirs: the hotel is right in the middle of Shanghai’s best shopping area, with a mall that’s directly accessible from the hotel’s third floor.
Nearly all public areas are wheelchair accessible. There are two rooms adapted to accommodate wheelchairs, with larger spaces and accessible bathrooms.
Children of all ages are welcome, though the space has a serene, adults-only vibe. Baby cots are available at no additional cost, and full-size beds can be reserved for 500RMB. Miniature slippers and robes will help little Smiths feel at home.
