great service, great swimming pool”

swimming pool, service, location

it takes a "crisis" to really see how the service of a hotel truly is. i had already left the hotel and could not find my passport. i called the hotel and housekeeping immediately sent staff to search my room. they could not find it. i returned to the hotel and the housekeeping staff accompanied me into the room and helped search for my passport. they tried their best to calm me down and accompanied me as i opened up my huge luggage. turns out it was inside. the housekeeping auntie was fantastic. as was the guy in charge of helping guests get cabs. he tried to get me one immediately, as he sensed my urgency. that made a huge difference to my stay. because of that, i'm not an advocate of equatorial. the other winner is the swimming pool, which is newly renovated. it's perfect. the water is a warm 29degrees. really enjoyable swim, with a view. please note you need swimming caps. location is fantastic too - 5 min walk from jing'an metro station. apart from that, the hotel is all right. slightly dated but they try their best. one thing i really don't like is that they are still using shower curtains, which just doesn't seem clean and modern in this day and age. check in and out slightly slow. also, my room key deactivated after the first day because they said i had insufficient deposit, which wasn't true. glitches here and there but superb service. i would return to equatorial if i'm looking for a hotel in that price range due to the service and the swimming pool.

Great Hotel ”

Hotel Equatorial has exist around 18 years, it is one of the 5 star hotel in Shanghai. The check in is smooth and staff are friendly. Concierge is reasonable helpful and not as friendly as other 5 star hotel. Breakfast spread is medicore, coffee is great. The breakfast server is not properly train. They don't really know what service means. If a customer walk in and ask for a coffee they should go and pick up a cup of coffee then serve to the customer and not by pointing to the coffee machine. In a 5 star hotel normally the staff will serve the coffee although they have the machine there and it is up to the customer to pick up the coffee themselves or self service. Customer pays the money is to get the service if no service better stays in a 3 star hotel with good room with less service. The room is great and the room cleaner are also great. Room are well clean.

Great hotel and services!”

Off the main expressway, easy for taxis to locate; excellent customer services and lovely room!

the hotel equatorial shanghai is a very conveniently located hotel. large, and off the main yan'an expressway, it is easy for taxis to find (trust me, this matters!) and close to the metro line 2 subway. the rooms are beautiful and luxurious, and the amenities (pool, hot tub, business centre) are great. also, the majority of the staff speak english well, and in particular the concierge at the door who will get a taxi for you and tell the driver your destination in chinese for you. highly recommended.
