Review: Hotel Pravo All Suites Shanghai

When you book a hotel in Shanghai you should first decide where you want to stay: most popular is either in Pudong near the Pearl Power, on the Bund or near People Square.

When we went to Shanghai on our 144h transit visa, we decided to stay near the Bund as this made visiting both the Bund and Nanjing Road with People Square accessible by foot and had a nice selection of bars and restaurants closeby. During our research we came across the Hotel Pravo All Suites in North Bund area. It is not exactly on the Bund but it was significantly cheaper and all rooms where modern looking suites with city view. It also had a decent rating on booking.com and Agoda (I highly value crowd opinion!), so we decided to give it a go and booked the room category “Amazing suites” for five nights for 605€ in total.

Check-In

We had requested a room on a higher floor (Amazing suites are floor 5-8) and when we checked in, we got a room on the 8th floor – nothing to complain about! The Check-in process was quick and friendly and their level of English was okay. They blocked a deposit of around 150€ on our credit card, which is completely normal with hotels in that category.

I really like the design of the lobby – elegant and classic but yet modern!

The rooms

But the real gem of this hotel is definitely the rooms/suites! They are super big, with a living room part and a half separated bedroom (yeah, that’s the definition of a suite – but even though I already stayed in large two-story suites I am still amazed by having a separated living room!)

The bathroom is in the middle of the room and comes with both shower and bathtub. The toilet is in a separate room and has a self-flushing toilet.

What I really liked, is the beautiful view you have from the window on the skyline of Pudong – no problem to see the Pearl Tower! (well, if Shanghai’s smog situation allows it – but that’s hardly to blame on the hotel :) )

At daytime the room is really light and the bed is super, super comfortable! I definitely already slept in world-renowned 5*hotels with worse beds/cushions!

Otherwise the room is equipped with everything you could ask for:

  • Kettle and coffee/tea making equipement (restocked daily)
  • Fridge
  • Bathroom amenties and hairdryer
  • Free water every day (you can’t drink the tap water in Shanghai!)
  • Safe
  • Bathrobe and slippers (I LOVE hotel bathrobes!
