We spent three nights at the Hotel Indigo and were delighted! The room was very clean and the bed extraordinarily comfortable. The location on the Bund was great for views from the room and walks to enjoy the area. The breakfast buffet was large and full of high quality choices, supplemented by selections from the menu. Staff was helpful and... More

Really liked this ultra modern design hotel. My room and bathroom were tasteful designed and furnished with a large super-comfy bed. The breakfast choice was excellent and of a very good quality. Staff were friendly and helpful. There's a pool and gym if you feel so inclined. Finally, the location was great - about a 15 minute walk to Nanjing... More

We stayed here for a vacation trip. The hotel is just beautiful. Modern, with a traditional touch. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and the views of the huangpo river were breathtaking. A little further from the bund than some other hotels, but easy walking distance.

Just returned from a three-night stay at the Indigo. This boutique hotel is located on the Bund with a stunning view on the river and the Pudong skyline. Location is fine, close (20+ min. walk) to where you'll likely go out: Peace Hotel / M on the Bund / Mr & Mrs Bund / Bar rouge. The hotel design is... More

What more can one say that hasnt been said in reviews before. Right from the start, the lobby was unusual and very attractive with lots of modern and retro artefacts. We were made most welcome by the lobby staff. The suite gave us a river view across to Pudong - well worth the extra expense. The compfortable bed and interesting... More

I do not normally review hotels I have stayed at (whether +ve or –ve experiences). However, reflecting on hotels I have stayed at over the past 12 months, I find that the impression I had of the Hotel Indigo Shanghai on the Bund was outstanding. It is the best Boutique Hotel I have stayed at for a long time. The... More

This hotel is very tastefully decorated and feels luxurious. Although it is large it still has a boutique feel to it. The rooms are well equipped and tastefully styled. The bar is possibly the best view of the shanghai skyline and the bund at night and is a very comfortable and relaxed space. Prices in the bar were 80 RMB... More

This has been the best hotel experience in years. And I have had many... What a fantastic way to enjoy Shanghai. Great location, fantastic breakfast, friendly staff and a spacious, empty swimming pool for myself alone. What more can you ask for.

This was my second time staying at Hotel Indigo in Shanghai. I did enjoy staying there the first time hence I was in no hesitation to pick them again. The location despite slightly further away from the action, it offers absolute advantage of avoiding heavy traffic. The river view is still stunning and breath-taking! The 'Char' Bar and 'Char' Restaurant... More

I love this hotel's design, positive-minded staff and its amazing views. The roof top bar's cocktails and service are a huge disappointment though. We sent all of our drinks back twice. A simple Vodka/Soda tasted like it had no alcohol and it had lemon cordial instead of real lemon juice. (server just could not understand the difference). Cosmos were far... More

Hi Alan J, Appreciate that you took some time to review Hotel Indigo on tripadvisor. Thank you for your many good comments. I was however disturbed to read about the drinks quality issues you had in CHAR bar. I can assure you that I have taken your feedback very seriously. We have had some changes in bar personnel recently but... More
