The hotel is very centrally located in Shanghai, it's about 10 minutes walk to Nanjing Road and the Bund. The room are a quite old, it really needs a renovation! The price/ quality is ok. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful, but their English is really poor! Compared to other places in the area, this is one of the... More

The Bund Riverside has an excellent location going for it, located just a short walk from The Bund and East Nanjing Road and a couple of Shanghai Metro stations. Unfortunately, it falls short in attempting to be the 4 star hotel it claims to be. Where it fails is that it attempts to be an international clientele oriented hotel but... More

My second time booking this hotel on hotels.com. Both times I arrive late after a flight and five-hour train ride. Both times the hotel insisted they could not find my booking. Called Hotels.com both times, first time I was able to get in the room after an hour. This last time the lady insisted they didn't call yet I was... More

We stayed at the hotel twice, on the way to Hainan and again at return. Great location, walking distance to the Nanjing Road and the Bund. Recently renovated rooms in good shape. Leningrad Bar in the second floor (unfortunately closed during our visits) and Central Asian restaurant next to it (worth trying, if you like old Soviet style atmosphere). Hotel... More

We stayed for only one night and had a room with a great view over the bund and shanghai skyline. Location is very good, close to shops, markets and transport. On the down side, the room looked a bit tired, smelled intensely of fried food and was freezing cold when we arrived (the heating took about 20 minutes to bring... More

The hotel is in a quieter part of Shanghai and within close walking distance of Nanjing Road. As with most places in Shanghai, you'll be fairly close to some form of public transportation or be able to hail a taxi with ease. With that said getting around from this hotel is fairly simple. With regards to the hotel service, the... More

Shanghai is a must-visit city, if you are in the mood that throws simultaneously throws you for a loop and makes you feel at home. Staying in the midst of the majesty, bustle, and chic of Shanghai is more attainable and economically possible than you might imagine. Book yourself a room at the Bund Riverside, located in the heart of... More

This hotel has large clean rooms with an excellent bathroom, beds are very hard if that sort of thing bothers you. Hotel requires a 100yuan deposit for a wifi router otherwise no wifi in your room. The staff only speak passable english although I found it more than sufficient.

This hotel is in a great location as it is walking distant to the Bund, Najing Road, the subway and other attractions .The front staff and doorman were very helpful. My room was a fair size and was clean although it could do with some updating. I did not have a clock in my room and the phone did not... More
