... inside a circular cage with at least 8 or 9 motorcycles in there at once, they just kept adding more! And this was not a large cage. The show was great! The next morning I was sad to leave Shanghai, but we left for the airport at 10 am for our flight to Taiwan at 2:30, well our flight was delayed and we didn't leave until almost 7 pm! And after flying into Taipei, Taiwan's capital we had to travel two hours to Taichung. It was a long day of travel but we made it to Taiwan!
So last night was my first night in my dorm. I slept alright, but when i woke up, i had no idea where i was. A slightly terrifying feeling, until you realise where you actually are. I keep dreaming about England and i'm just so confused when i wake up.. I guess this will change soon. I woke up pretty late today considering how early i've been getting up recently! Today was my first experience of Chinese opera and it ...
... we went to a tailor known
for her good work, and annual revenue from the Purdue students she gets
recommended by. She is in a little shop in the Shanghai Soft Spun Fabric
Market, and on Friday we went down and got fitted for suits. A tailored suit
costs about $100 and a tailored shirt is $20. We went around downtown after
that and looked at Nanjing Road, the center or Shanghai. It is about a mile
long, and both sides ...
... from the very top were AMAZING! The glass flooring however was not so cool although Dave absolutely loved it and loved the fact that I staggered slowly across with my hesitant walk! You could see for miles with 360 degree views of the city across the night time skyline. It was amazing!! On the way down we sampled a few other floors, the whole building was pretty spectacular consisting of a shopping mall, restaurants, offices, ...
... while gathering supplies from their bags. With no warning, one man began spraying my hair with water. "OH! Oh no! That will make it worse!" He just calmly started brushing it. "Smooth," he said. I tried to explain that it would curl but he was entirely too pleased with his frizziness solution. The same solution was applied throughout the rest of the day much to my dismay.
When I left the photo shoot, I came home and cried. I cried because I felt ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Eton Hotel Shanghai
I was on my way back from Xuzhou and had to spend the night in Shanghai. It was a thankyou for the missus for being my translator I picked a 5 star hotel.
I would agree with most of the positive comments that you have seen in the reviews about this hotel. It's a beautiful new building with an attentive staff that does everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. The only gripe that I have is about the hot water in the shower. Even though Shanghai is miserably hot in August, you have to wait a long time for the water to even get warm. When I set it at the maximum setting for hot, it was just temperate. I am not sure what is going to happen in winter if this was any sort of indicator.
I was in Shanghai on a business trip for 3 days. I had some reservations initially about the Eton Shanghai being locally own and run and not one of the famous hotel chains like Intercontinental or Ritz. Moreover, the room rate they offered was quite low which gave me pause due to my "cheap thing no good thing" mentality. However, my worries were quickly proven to be unfounded.
Excelente hotel. Personal muy amable, habitación acogedora, bien decorado y con todo lujo de detalles. Cercano al centro en cortos desplazamientos en taxi o metro. Muy recomendable y con un nivel de precios inferior a los de su categoría en la ciudad.
This is a great hotel, the employees are nice and helpful, leaving your car next to the back entrance to pick up your bags is no problem. And for who need there is always quickly someone available who is able to speak englisch.
this hotel is absolutely amazing. the service, the views, the decor, the amenities. and of course the price. you don't have to waste the extra money on a "brand" name hotel in order to have the amenities you expect. usually in china, "five-star" hotels are only a fiction of the management's imagination, but this place delivers. it is about a $3USD taxi ride to the Bund. i understand that it is often difficult to trust the legitmacy and independence of a reviewer, but i recommend giving this place a chance.
Stayed here with my boyfrield a couple of weeks ago. Stayed for 4 nights and just wished I could have stayed longer! Bright modern hotel with fantastic rooms with amazing views of either the river or Pudong. Stayed in an executive room on the 38th floor and the room was just perfect after a long day of haggling in Shanghai...lie back in the bath with a drink and watch a bit of TV or just pull up the blind on the glass divides between the bathroom and bedroom and watch the world go by!
Das beste Hotel, in dem ich bisher gewohnt habe! Die Zimmer sind schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Alle Zimmer haben einen Flachbildfernseher im Bad und einen größeren am Fußende vom Bett. Das Bad hat eine Wanne und separate Dusche. Die Betten sind bequem und recht komfortabel. Die Lichtschalter sind Hightech. Es gibt genügend Platz für das Gepäck, genügend Platz für einen Tisch und eine WLAN-Verbindung. Das Buffet ist sehr gut, die Waffeln sollten Sie mal probieren, die frischen Früchte sind aber auch sehr gut. Die Security ist ein angenehmer Zusatz und man braucht den Zimmerschlüssel, um in das Stockwerk, in dem das Zimmer liegt, zu gelangen. Man kann keine anderen Etagen betreten, es sei denn, man hat zuvor dem Concierge Bescheid gesagt. Ich werde auf jeden Fall wiederkommen und kann es allen meinen Freunden weiter empfehlen.
It's the best hotel I've ever stayed in! The rooms are nice and well equipped. The bathroom has a flat screen tv and a larger one by the bed. The bathroom has a bathtub and a shower at the same time. The beds are nice, not spring nice, but comforter nice. The light switches are very high tech. There is space for luggage, a space for tables and wi fi. the buffet is very nice, try the waffles, the fruit selection and the miso soup, you'll like it. the security is nice, you have to use your keys to go to your floor, you cant go to another person's floor not unless somebody calls the concierge or fetches you from the lobby.I will so totally stay here again and I will definitely recommend this hotel to my best friend.
I just stayed 3 nights at The Eton hotel in shanghai and it was one of the most beautifull hotels ive ever stayed at (and ive been to a few!) Shanghai is a fast paced, exciting and exhausting city, it was such a pleasure to come back to our hotel every night! The bathtub was was soooo big and comfy with an incredible veiw of the skyline (yes, from the tub!) there was TWO flat screen tvs , one in the bathroom! The shower was a seperate room and had perfect water pressure... The beds were a tad bit hard, but in China they almost all are, and it turned out to not be so bad at all. The pool is a work of art, in a huge glass room overlooking the city, with plenty of chaise lounges and palm bunches around... The business center was nice, but a bit pricey to use the internet, about 50 yuan for 15 minutes.. the breakfast buffet was the ABSOLUTE BEST we have every had... in ANY country... was beautifull... i kept wanting to take pictures... the food was yummy and the presentation was just perfect! Besides... it was nice to have western food after weeks of only chinese food:) Anyhow... I loved this hotel and would almost go back to Shanghai just to stay there ! Ps. They only take yuan at the business center, no US Dollar or charging to your room.. They exchange money at front desk in lobby if need be, just take your passport with you.
