The best value for money in the Bund. The hotel is on the river with panoramic views, its 10 minute walk from the financial center of the Bund, rooms are large and very well furnished with a nice modern touch, the shower room is huge with excellent shower equipment and the prices are very, very reasonable. Very strongly recommend it

We were upgraded to a corner room on the 25th floor. The floor-to-ceiling windows gave us incredible views of Pudong, the Bund, and the river. At night, it was spectacular. The room was large (even a walk-in closet) and beautifully decorated. On the wall behind the king-sized bed, was a giant photo blow-up of a beautiful old building in the... More

This hotel is worth the price for its view (dude, we had a floor to ceiling window in our HUGE shower). The restaurant is supposed to be amazing, but we didn't get the chance to try it. All in all, even if you can't afford it, at least drop in to the lobby to see the cool design and art... More

The design, the service, the detail, the comfort, the quality - all fantastic. The indigo team strived to deliver a unique quality experience, and they delivered. The baileys by my bed, the pancakes for breakfast, the great coffee in the cafe - brilliant. I am in total praise of this hotel. My room overlooked the river and historical bund strip.... More

Nice boutique hotel with nice facilities and English speaking front desk. The room is comfortable and equipped with most amenities for a business traveller. From your room, you will get a nice view of the river, both day and night.

The styling is unique and tied in with the look and feel of nearby Yu Yuan. The hotel is very comfortable with large rooms and bathrooms overlooking the Bund and Pudong. Locals say the restaurant enjoys some of the best views on the Bund, personally I found the dining room oppressive, in the style of a traditional steak house. The... More

the location, hotel decor and hardware are all good. Generally speaking this is a very good hotel at a reasonable price. However, I'd like to share the following shortcomings that I experienced during my stay - 1) the car park is pretty far away from the hotel building, but I guess not many guests drive anyway 2) the restaurant on...

This hotel is amazing for the price. I stayed for two nights in a 'river view room' that offered not only superb river views but also a grand vista of the whole Bund area and across the Huangpu R. To the financial district and the futuristic-looking TV tower. The hotel is very comfortable with very stylish decor. View from the... More

Staying in South Bund

Neighborhood Profile
South Bund
This waterfront area below the most famous section of the Huangpu River has undergone multiple phases of development that started when the Waterhouse Hotel opened its doors. Though it’s been slower to catch on than people expected, every year something new and exciting opens up and gives people a reason to keep calling the South Bund the "Next Big Thing." There are a couple of landmark hotels and restaurants of excellent quality that serve as anchors, and multiple annual events such as beer festivals, art and fashion fairs and music shows take advantage of the wide spaces, waterfront location and the tiny man-made beach to host huge crowds of people. Wandering about the newness, one can stumble upon authentic Chinese life in the stone gates of people’s residences or the street markets.
