When it comes to luxurious accommodation in Shanghai, you won’t find anything more high-end than the Mandarin Oriental. Located on the banks of the Hungpu River and tucked away in the heart of the city’s financial district in Pudong, the Mandarin Oriental offers world class service, perfect if you are travelling for business or leisure.

The hotel offers 318 rooms and 44 suites, all beautifully decked out in modern, luxe décor with a distinctly Asian twist. The rooms are large and beautifully laid out. The highlight has to be the bathtub which overlooks the bustling streets of Shanghai giving you the best view in the house. Make sure you make time to take in the view during the day and at night when the city transformed into a sea of lights as the nearby skyscrapers and flashing Oriental Pearl Tower lights up.

Location wise, the Mandarin Oriental is in the prime position. It is minutes from Shanghai IFC and Shanghai World Financial Centre, 10 minutes from Shanghai’s historic Bund, close to Lujiazui and Pudong Avenue Metro stations and 35 minutes to Hongqiao international airports.

The hotel prides itself on having some of the best service in the world. The staff go above and beyond to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible.

The hotel offers a high-tech gym facility with personal trainers available to help you get the most out of your workout.

The in-house spa offers the perfect place to pamper yourself, with the highly skilled staff on hand to help you relax and rejuvenate.

The Mandarin Oriental offers some of the best dining experiences in Shanghai. If you are looking for something European, why not indulge in contemporary French grill from Michelin-starred chef Richard Ekkebus at Fifty 8° Grill. If you want to try something a little more traditional, why not tuck into some delicious Jiang Nan cuisine at Yong Yi Ting. Feeling peckish during the day? You can always have a bite to eat at Zest, treat yourself to afternoon tea and delicacies at Riviera Lounge or gourmet sweets at The Mandarin Cake Shop. When the sun goes down, you can enjoy cocktails and a live DJs at Qi Bar.
