The view, especially at night time, of the bund South China harbour is the most spectacular skyline I have ever seen. I am a fan of and regular visitor to Manhatten, but somehow the bund seems bigger but also more intimate. This partly because the waterway is narrower than the Hudson but the streets are wide. Huge effort has gone... More

Stayed here in April 2015 at the end of a group tour and for a few days after. It was fine. The location is great and the views are fabulous, particularly from the top floor where the restaurant is located. My fellow group members had some reservations. I found it be like many hotels in China. You do have to... More

I had already stayed at this hotel about 4-5 years ago, and I really loved it for the view it offered (see my older review), so I decided to come back here. However, I have been really disappointed. The hotel changed management, and (new?) staff was quite unpleasant. The overall room conditions, already not “great” at the time, were appreciably... More

Stayed an extra night in Shanghai after a family cruise. We had a three bedroom, two bath with full kitchen and living room. Rooms were large, but stains on walls and carpet. Mattress was very hard; could have been sleeping on the floor. No sound proofing. Could here voices thru walls. TV stations were all Chinese. Only one in English.... More

Where to start, I think the best part of this hotel is the door on the way out. I booked this hotel after looking for a reasonably priced hotel on the Bund. the majority of the reviews seemed ok here. As soon as we entered the cold reception area it just felt odd. The staff were all rugged up and... More

Visited 8/11-11/11/12. Deluxe river view room 20th floor, fabulous views of the river, the Bund and Pudong. Room very spacious and clean, can't fault that. I think the hotel also serves as serviced appartments, so has that feel rather than that of a bustling hotel. A big let down was the breakfast or lack of it. Whilst the breakfast restaurant... More

It is a budget hotel in perfect spot. I don’t think they keep up with maintenance as it already shows wear and tear considering it is quite new building. I did pay a bit extra to have Pudong view and would highly recommend that. That is the best aspect of the hotel, the rest is a bit hit and miss.... More

This hotel is a nightmare. We made a reservation for 2 rooms, but when we arrived, the guy at the front desk said we only booked for 1 room and that there was no other room available, which was untrue since the people behind us had no reservation but were able to get 3 rooms. In the room we had,... More

This hotel commands one of the best views in the world today and is aptly named. The Bund in itself is a wonder and is 400 mts from the front door but the river ......my gosh the HungPo travels right past your window and is absolutely crowded with all type of boats. We spent hours just looking out of the... More

Staying in Hongkou

Neighborhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
