We stayed in a renovated room, which was very good. (apparently, there also are rooms which have not been renovated). The front desk staff was helpful. The breakfast was good and the variety of food excellent. The hotel is 7 minutes by foot from the Jing'an metro station and 10 minutes by foot from Changle Road and Anfu Road in the French concession, where there are many good restaurants. The price for the room was attractive. We would go back any time.

I stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip in a SMART room. I believe that those are newly renovated on the corner. They are quite small but comfortable. I would say that whether or not you should stay here depends largely on the price. If you can get a decent deal, this is a good choice if you don't want to pay for the top notch hotels that are nearby. Things I liked about Equatorial: 1) Location is good, close to the subway 2) Bed is super comfortable, I loved it. Good for people ... Read more

We were very impressed with this hotel. The decor was amazing from the reception area to the floors and rooms. In the room there were lots of little extras and funky lighting. When we put in our room card the roller blinds lifted to reveal our view of the temple across the road. Breakfast was included and it offered a wonderful selection. We visited the spa and pool and were disappointed we didn't have time to visit as it looked amazing! We would definitely stay here again and recommend this hot... Read more

Surprisingly, prices in this hotel got cheaper over the years even as Shanghai prices went skyrocketing. Location is amazing - just across the road from JING AN temple and park and in walking distance to Nanjing Lu, huaihai Lu or French concession. Room - we took 3 rooms and were disappointed as rooms were tired and old. Mattresses were too hard or too soft. Make sure to ask for renovated room as they are much nicer. To conclude - price we paid was super cheap considering location and being ... Read more

Hotel is a 4-4.5 star hotel. The price for the rooms is certainly fair and competitive.It is run and managed very well. The management and front end staff all speak English so communication is not an issue. The hotel is in a great area with transportation close by. Subway and bus are less than a 5 minute walk away. There is also restaurants and shopping on Nanjing Rd. west also 5-10 minute walk. The hotel facilities include restaurants, swimming pool, tennis courts, spa and exercise room. Most r... Read more

Ideally located on the edge of the Concession(French) and one block away from West Nanjing Road, the Hotel Equatorial is a great place to stay during your visit to Shanghai. The service is top notch, the included outstanding breakfast buffet offers something for everyone, and the rooms have recently been updated to a high standard. English is spoken throughout the hotel and the staff consistently exceed expectations for their service. This is my go-to hotel when I am in Shanghai and have stayed ... Read more

Well situated between the old French Concession and the new Nanjing Road, you are a quick walk to either place to experience the Yin Yang of Shanghai. An older big hotel, good breakfast, decent sized rooms, it's well maintained and cheaper than the other choices that proliferate in this area. If you are there at the right time you can watch an NBA finals game on the TVs in the lounge or restaurant. That means breakfast.

I visited this hotel for a business trip over a period of almost a week. I also got an upgrade and that's very nice. Despite minor flaws, the hotel is great at a very convenient location (near metro and a lot of good food). The room is clean and staff very nice, and the stay was enjoyable. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in Shanghai at reasonable price.

Just a one night stay before heading on. First time I tried the hotel. Friendly and good pace at the check-in and check-out. Fair size room, tidy, clean and equiped with all the relevant amenities. Primarily Chinese TV channels, but some non-Chinese news channels. The hotel offers a couple of restaurants (tried the Cafe 65). Their pizza was not worth the money. I guess it is better to stick to the local dishes? The service was fair, but not great. English levels very different. A few spoke ... Read more

This hotel has an excellent location , being nestled just around the corner from Jing An temple . It has been upgraded recently and now has a swimming pool. The only negative is that the toilet in the room has a rather silly remote control and is hard to use unless you understand Chinese characters. Good breakfast and good service make this a good choice overall though .

I have chosen the corner room on the eighth floor as I was traveling alone. The room is refreshed, clean and very comfortable. Quality of the mattress is very good. Good location, very convenient to hop around Shanghai as Jing An Temple station is with short walk. Fetching of taxi is easy.

I was favorably impressed by this place. It's not much to look at from the outside, but the inside is definitely interesting. My room was actually quite small, but coolly and efficiently designed. Very modern. Seemed like it may have been renovated not too long ago. Decent rate, too.

We spent a few hours scouring and choosing the 'perfect' mid-budget hotel in Shanghai, seeing it was the first time my wife and I were travelling with our 20-month young daughter. On top of our want-list from the hotel were clean, non-smoking rooms, a decent breakfast spread and most importantly, English speaking staff in case of any urgent requirement or emergency in general. Equatorial Shanghai passed with flying colors in all of the above departments. The front desk staff was super helpful a... Read more

The hotel is located in a great location, walking distance to Jing'an Temple and famous Nanjing Road. Lots of restaurants nearby and shopping. The hotel rooms have been newly renovated and the gym is very good. The room rate is very reasonable given its location with very friendly check in staff. The concierge staff can speak English well.

Well located in the Jing'an area. I travelled with my husband who was working and wondered if it would be a safe place to sight see alone. The hotel is opposite the Jing'an temple a short walk over the foot bridge. I felt very safe walking out alone during the day. There are a security guards and lots of people walking about. There is also a beautiful and tranquil park across the road that also has a great Thai restaurant called Thai gallery. Plenty of restaurants and shopping within easy walkin... Read more

Stayed h r really for 3 nights with a tour. Room and bathroom was average size. Slippers and robe in room as well as a mini bar. Breakfast was included and had a mix of eastern and western foods with many choices. Also ate in the restaurant. I ordered pizza and it took a very long time to come to the table.

The hotel is in a pretty good location, with plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance and less than five minutes from a subway station. They were constructing walkways over the roads whilst I was there which would make it even easier to get about. The hotel is decorated in an art deco style, which is lovely, and the rooms feel very luxurious. Breakfast had a great variety of foods, with pancakes, bacon and other more traditional Western options alongside the Chinese dishes.

I recently stayed at Hotel Equatorial for a week while visiting Shanghai. The hotel was very comfortable; I was in a Club Level room and had access to the Club Lounge with wonderful views. The location was great--short walk to shops and restaurants in the French Concession, or to the metro stop on West Nanjing Road. Emily, who worked the concierge desk on the Club Level, was extremely helpful in assisting me with confirming tour times and pick-ups. Would definitely recommend!

This is a nice spot in Shangahi. The rooms are very comfortable, with firm mattresses and well-appointed bathrooms. We really liked the neighborhood for strolling around. We're right near the French Concession and the Buddhist temple and the area is lively and feels quite safe strolling around at night. Another plus- good air conditioning.

Stayed for few days in Equatorial Shanghai. Situated in the French concession is a good place to be. Staff was helpful and professional and the room was clean and spacious. Good to return to after an intensive day at the office. Was upgraded at the check in so could not be happier. Breakfast in the morning has Asian as well as Continental food. When back, will probably book again here.
