8/10 Very good

The room was a bit small. I could not believe that i paid CNY52 for a soft drink in the bar, day light robbery to say the least. I expected to pay a bit more since it is a hotel bar so i did not look at the price upon ordering, but CNY52 for a can of 7UP is just absolutely ridiculous, the same would cost CNY3 in the shop.

Clean but never-ending Internet issues
As far as hotels in Shanghai go, the Equatorial is quite clean (which, if you've tried many hotels in Shanghai, you'll know is noteworthy) and the beds are comfortable. I live in a nearby city and whenever we come to spend time in Shanghai, we stay here but the internet connections almost always fail us. It's a problem at most Shanghai hotels we've tried. If you need to do work during your stay, you may need to choose a more expensive option.
