The Longest Hotel Stay Ever

(Another backdated post)

We stayed a total of 26D25N in two hotels in Shanghai upon our arrival on 1/1/2013. Initially, mummy and I were supposed to move here in February, after daddy has settled the house-hunting and school-hunting for us. This plan did not work out because that would put all the “hunting burdens” on daddy alone. Since he was given a 30-day free hotel accommodation, we finally decided that it was best to fly together, stay together and do all the necessary hunting together.

For the first 3 days, we stayed at the Renaissance Shanghai Yang Tze Hotel. This was a very nice hotel but the room was too small for the 3 of us and our 5 luggage. The room did not come with any cupboard/wardrobe or proper storage space for our stuff (imagine all 5 of our bags scattered all over the floor!), plus they refused to include daily breakfast for mummy and I despite the fact that we were staying “long term”. Hmmph!

Nice room with comfortable beds but very little space to move around :(


Lighted polar bears at the hotel lobby


The buffet breakfast here was yummy but it was not included in the room rates (daddy paid first and later claimed back from his company hehe)


Finally, a big and spacious room with a huge wardrobe and plenty of compartments to put our things



Very happy to have this as our home for the next 22 days :)


Part of the big and luxurious bathroom


The cylindrical shower screen


My favourite was the bath tub... I enjoyed a few sessions of bubble bath, of course


Our buffet breakfast vouchers for 20+ days.



Mummy and I had a slow and enjoyable breakfast in this restaurant every morning. Daddy always ate alone at an earlier time as he had to leave for work at 7am+


I ate mainly all the healthy stuff everyday... colourful veggies and fruits were a must on top of the other usual fare like bread, pancakes, eggs, noodles, porridge, yoghurt, milk, cereal, fruit juice etc.


Another happy breakfast shot... Breakfast was definitely our favourite time of the day!


There was an indoor heated pool in the hotel but mummy felt that the room temperature was a bit too cold for me to swim here... I could only view from afar...



Christmas decorations in the lobby when we checked in...


When we checked out... CNY decor already :)

  1. Wow! That was truly a very long hotel stay. The longest stay in a single hotel for me was probably 2 nights. Haha!

    But I don't mind staying in a comfy room like the one Longemont Hotel offered :)

  7. The new hotel is much more spacious and comfortable. I hope they will change the buffet menu every week. If not, I would attempt outside food rather than the buffet.

    1. They did change the menu everyday, for most of the cooked/hot food. Other things like fruits, salad bar, pastries/bread and cereal bar always remained the same.

  8. The 2nd hotel look more comfy. Look at that stack of meal voucher haha.
    It's good decision to fly there with daddy at the same time. More time to hang out and adapt the new city.

  12. Your daddy's company is so generous!! I wish to stay in such luxury hotel for that long!

  13. If I were to stay there, I would eat all that I could at the breakfast buffet, I might skip the lunch and jump into the pool to swim for an hour. So nice, I love staying in hotel too, because I can forget about the house chore and live like a tai tai every day.

  14. The great thing abt staying at the hotel so long...NO need to clean up for almost a month!!! And to cook...!Was it hard adjusting back to household life after that?

    1. Yes, the no-housework-and-cooking part was definitely the best for mummy although she still had to do some laundry daily. Returning to normal household life was ok la...we actually looked forward to setting up our "new" home and adapted fast and easily :)
