Rooms are clean, comfortable and of adequate size. The hotel itself is clean and centrally located. Minibar extremely expensive, absolutely ridiculous. Rooms booked over the internet, as often in China, came at a big discount, but they then try to hit you over the head with a cricket bat on mini bar prices, breakfast (not included), etc. When I arrived...

My stay was short but I enjoyed it. I was upgraded to the executive suite so that did make my stay a lot better. The lobby is a little lacklustre and is missing vibe. You can tell the hotel needs a little make over. Other than that, I was very satisfied with my stay. Also very close to Nanjing road... More

We got here and the electricity in our room didn't work. When we called the front desk to get it fixed they hung up on me three times with no explanation. The fourth time the said an electrician was coming. It was the cleaning lady who helped as much as we did. I asked to be moved to another room,... More

I booked this hotel through Agoda for a 5 night stay. The room was great. Very clean and spacious. The hotel is in a great location. The service, however, is not en-par with a 4 star hotel. The staff members weren't very friendly nor helpful. But all-in-all it was worth the money.

While the location is good, the reception staff manager was very rude. Did not treat us as welcome guests. Our room was small but with adequate facilities. Bed was like a plank. We had a dinner on the 17th floor but it was very disappointing. Our choices of wine were white (which was only available warm) and red wine wasn't... More

We stayed at the Bund Riverside Hotel in Shanghai. The hotel is a good price for the quality. The room was large, clean, all the amenities you would require. When we checked in we were given a room on the 16th floor overlooking the Bund and the only issue was the King bed, it was very hard. The staff were... More

We had a nice experience at the hotel, and had two rooms due to being upgraded the first night of our stay (3 nights total). I highly recommend doing what you can to have a room that faces the Bund, as it allows for really nice night time sights. Beware of the people that hang out on the hotel's outside... More

We only had 2 nights here but really enjoyed our suite. Our room had a great view of the Pearl Oriental Tower which is lit beautifully at night. The hotel is in a great place for accessing the Bund, some authentic markets down some side streets (Taiwan St?), and the busy shopping centres (very close to Metro stations too). Easy... More

For travellers who want to stay in the city centre but at a affordable cost this is the place to stay. Right on the banks of Huangpu River. Go for a higher floor room facing TV tower. Hotel is just walkable from metro station, shopping street, Hop on hop off bus tours and THE BUND.

I visited this hotel as i needed to be close to all the good areas in Shanghai. Loved the location and service. People there are very good servers and also attentive. Mattresses are like stone so be aware that you will need to recover for those hard mattresses. Restaurant is Ok as buffet is good enough to get satisfied and... More
