Girlfriendly Hotels in Shanghai

Different to other cities in China, there is not really a need for a girlfriendly hotel list here in Shanghai. The official rule is same than other cities here in China:

  • no one is allowed to stay in the hotel later than 10pm if, she (or he) is not registered as a guest.

But in Shanghai most time no one care about that. Only for some days around the years there will be some official goverment delegations in Shanghai and some hotels will care a little bit more that days.

Our tips: 

  • Most 5 star hotels will require a room card, if you want to use the elevator, so if you like to call an escort to your room, you have to go downstairs to pick up the girl, which can follow up to get more attention than you would like to get. 
  • For this case better check out, if you can find a place where you can easily meet the girl on another level than the lobby area. Nearly all hotels have some levels without limited to their guests, for example the restaurant level or the bar level. And here it will let it keep much more "normal" if someone wait for others in front of a restaurant and bar. 
  • Actually we not really recommend to book lower than a 5star hotel, if you plan to have fun with girls there. While their is no case where a 5star hotel guest got in trouble because of that, there are several reports for police raids in "lower level" hotels, where sometimes even the hotel staff or management called the police, when they got a hint for a prostitution case. So from our view it`s a low investment for a significant more secure experience.

The Longemont Hotel Shanghai

One of the best choices from our view is the Longemont hotel in Puxi near Jing An Temple. They have many advantages, which will make this hotel to a mongerer paradise: 

  • western styled 5 star hotel rooms
  • bathroom with wall for opening to the room
  • no card necessary for the elevator (girl can come up directly)
  • very girlfriendly (we directly asked them, if there is any issue if a girl - or more - want to visit and they confirmed, that this is not a problem. 
  • located less than 10 taxi minutes to Manhattan and Judy`s Bar, but also in direction to the Sauna Hotspot in Minhang area.  



Rate: around 1200 RMB per night/ special offer starts from 700 RMB

Shanghai Hilton Hotel (Jing An)

The Hilton Hotel in Shanghai Jing An (there is another one a little bit outside in Hongqiao, so make sure you book the right one) is opposite side of a good girlsbar street, also some massage parlors around and you can walk in around 10 Minutes to Manhattan or Judy`s.


Website: Hilton Hotel Shanghai


Rate: around 1900 RMB per night

Rayfond Hotel Appartment Shanghai

If you want to have fun, but not willing to spend so much, we found a great solution (thanks to our guide Andi). There is a 4 star Hotel called "Rayfont". The rooms are not the best choice (around RMB 260), but they have some great "Delux suites" with a nearly 5 star bedroom. And the hotel definitly don`t care girls come and go, even in the late night. This place is arouns 10 minutes from the Hotspots in Jing An. 


Website: Rayfond Hotel


Rate: around 360 to 430 RMB per night for the Delux Suite

The Portman Ritz-Carlton

The Portman is just opposite side of the JC Mandarin, around 3 minutes walking distance from most hotspots in Jing An area and you will not have a problem to bring a girl there. It is a high exclusive Hotel with very good rooms, but also not so cheap. 


Website: Portman Hotel


Rate: around 2000 RMB per night

    same than all other 5 star hotels in Shanghai ;-) Except they need a room card for the elevator (which means you need to meet any girl you call over somewhere on a public accessible floor) it`s not a bad choice. But generally I would recommend the Shangri-la in Puxi much more. Just beside Manhattan an Judy`s club, much more near to any sauna club and also more near to the place where many of the escort girls stay (mostly they will live in Minhang or Jing An District.

    Have a save trip,

  • #52

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Friday, 20 November 2015 15:19)

    1) yes, like all better western styled hotels in Shanghai (you also could read it above ;-)
    2) nope... no hotels like or accept prostitutes "working" there. Can be sometimes one or two girls if they are not to "obviously" working girls, but that strategy is nothing I would bet on
    3 & 4) It is getting a little bit too much "individual consulting" for free... or not? For VIP members we will offer that kind of support (20 € for 3 month), if you understand the hint.

    Have a good trip,

    Hi ! I will be staying at Crowne Plaza-Shanghai Noah Square, No.1699, JinshajiangRoad, PutuoDistrict, Shanghai.

    1. Do they allow girls into their rooms ?
    2. Whether girls hang around in the lobby to be picked up by guests ?
    3. The Hotel I understand has SPA. Any girls in the SPA ?
    4. What is the prevailing standard rates for FS 60 minutes ?

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Thursday, 15 October 2015 10:35)

    Pudong Airport is really "in the middle of nowhere", so not the best place so stay ;-)
    But if you have to, you need to pay a lot more for taxi fee. In nighttime the taxi to Pudong Airport from for example Min Hang (where most of the independent girls are located, because many worked for saunas in that area before) will be around 300 (one way!!!), so the taxi fee will not be 100 to 200, but probably 500 to 700 depending on girls location. So you decided to spend your time in a girls desert and you will have to pay compensation for that than ;-)
    And if you choose a better hotel (avoid 3 star or Chinese cheap 4 star hotels), than there will be no problem for girls to go there, only some of the typical Chinese low level hotel will give girls trouble, no western orientated hotel would do in Shanghai actually.

    Nevertheless, have fun,

  • #48

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Thursday, 07 May 2015 03:00)

    not more or less than all upscaled hotels here in Shanghai. They will not have any problems with girls.
    I tried it last weeks in the Ascott Hotel. 5 stars, exclusiv enviroment where I have been always the only one in the lobby and went out 3 times this night to pick up a girl in the lobby, and no one had any problems with that. The 3rd time at 6 am when I brought the last girl out, the girl at the reception even asked me, if I want a late check out, because she think I not got many sleep this night. So except the very "windy time" where they get special order to care about, no one will have any problem in the better hotels (sometimes 3 star hotels are more complicate).

    Enjoy your trip,

    Hilton Hongqiao is same "girlfriendly" than others, so no problem to bring girls there. It`s a little bit far away from the famous pickup bars, which are located in Jing An Discrict, but you are closed to Ming Han District, where most of the saunas are located, so not bad for that. And the pine club sauna you find on our page is walking distance to your hotel ;-)

    Have fun, Steven

    Love Hotel - Important Information

    If you go to the love hotel for check in, BOTH need to show their ID or passport, so if the girl did not bring her passport or ID, you will have no chance to check in, and that can be a big frustration, so better be prepared and ask the girl in advance (thanks to Holger for the update)

  • #39

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Thursday, 30 October 2014 18:31)

    To avoid confusion about the below mentioned girls rate of 600 RMB. A rate of 400 to 600 is the common "start rate" of the street and internet pimps. When the girl will arrive, it will get much more finally. She will pretend, that this rate has been agreed for only a massage (easy for the pimps to prepare that "missunderstanding", because of the law restriction, they always only talk about a "massage") but than get her naked will be extra, handjob will be extra, blowjob and full service also not included, so the target will be to get as much as possible, most time never less than 1500, if they meet a "greenhorn", they sometimes also can go home with 5000 or more for a short lousy session.
    So to avoid trouble and dissapointment, better clear it very detailed, if you really "confirm" a deal with a girl.

  • #38

    Tody (Thursday, 30 October 2014 16:11)

    In addition to my post below (#40):
    I had twice no problems receiving girls on my room.

    As written below the previous Saturday I had spotted two potential working girls in the lobby. The following Saturday I came back to the hotel round 23:00. There was a girl sitting across from the elevators again. I got curios now. I quickly took my bags to the room and went down to the lobby again but the girl was gone. I went outside and there she was just slowly leaving the hotel premises. I followed her and once she spotted me she came over and started the usual "want a massage?" with rubbing her boobs against my body. I already had had my massage that day *bg* and she wasn't really my type. Still, I think it's always good to know the market. She would have followed me to my room for 600 RMB in the end. So it seems Kempinski tolerates working girls to hang out in the lobby waiting for patrons.

    Colors Hotel - Love Hotel Update

    We cleared that case now. They did not have the licence to offer their service for foreigners, but we have been able to make them understand it would bring a lot of advantages for them and finally they applied and got the permission now, so there will be no problems like the ones mentioned below any more. I have been there today to make sure it will work out smoothly, and I can confirm, they will rent out rooms for foreigners now. But they will not be able to speak english, but the will know what you want, and they have a price list where you can see rates for one hour, 3 hours and overnight. The rate is more expensive than advertised outside, so now not 178 any more changed to 198 for the cheapest room for 3 hours up to 400 RMB for the bigger and more exclusive room for 3 hours. The also provide one hour or even 24 hours (this will be 800 for the most expensive room). The enviroment is perfect to have fun with a girl, different styled rooms, but all with a good athmosphere, so we think it will be the best place in Shanghai at the moment, if you want to have fun with a girl, but don't want to take her to your place.

    Have fun,

    In reply to #10 and #11:
    Grand Kempinski does not require the room card for the lifts to operate. Else I can't tell yet if it is more gf friendly than other or less.

    Last night (Saturday) there were two philippine (?) girls hanging out in the lobby at least for 1.5 hours always grinning to any westeners passing by. Thought they were working girls. Was to tired from the flight, though, and today lobby was empty.

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Wednesday, 15 October 2014 07:03)

    Hi 2on1, what a pitty you failed. I got the tip from a western escort from our page who went there with a western customers, so there has been a chance for that, but I don't know how it worked for them but not for you. I know some hotels are not allowed to accept foreign customers, because for that they need the "process" for synchronize the booking with the local police station for register the stay, and if they don't provide that, than they are forbidden to accept foreign guest. I guess it was this reason. But I like the idea very much, so I will send a chinese guide to there next time and see, if wecan get some more details and find a solution.

    Enjoy the city,

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Tuesday, 14 October 2014 06:08)

    @Ken: Sorry, but we use google maps for our mapservice and at the moment China blocked nearly all google services including maps and even translate. But we will try to find another solution. But to be honest, if you spend 700 to 900 for a sauna session, I would not care too much about the taxi fee is 50 more or less for a place, I just would grap a taxi and go to the best place, not to the nearest one.

    Have fun in Shanghai,

    check out the colors hotel here in Shanghai, near Jing An Area. This is a typical japanese "short time hotel", they offer different styled "theme rooms" and rent it out on an hour based concept. Not expensive and all the service is exactly focused to your need: have s great short time together with a sexy girl.

    We will add it here on our page soon, but meanwhile you can just google it ;-)

    Renaissance Yu Garden is not at the bund, but conveniently located. Walk to bund in 10 minutes, subway right in front of hotel which brings you directly to some fun places, night taxi to Manhattan less than 10 minutes and really girlfriendly. It's 5 stars, so you need the room key. But: The entrance is _not_ on the lobby level, so if you come at late night time just a bored sleeping guard there, and you can directly go to your level with your guest without passing the lobby and without any trouble. They also have a rooftop bar which is public access, so you can first meet your incall there. In the official leaflet released by the hotel, they recommend places to go out in Shanghai - including Manhattan Bar!

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Sunday, 18 May 2014 17:54)

    Hi Johnny, I am sorry, but at the moment I don`t know any hotel near the bund I can recommend.
    We are on the way to built up a hotel database with informations like that, but not started yet. But no need to worry, even in the "hot time" now it`s not a problem to get the girls in the room.
