The hotel changed name and management(former Panorama hotel) Furniture and rooms are clean, modern, well designer. Rooms are from 16th to 25th floor, with astonishing view( our has Bund view) The team... More

Stayed for 3 nights during my visit. The room is decent and clean. Hotel offer free wifi and thats a plus point for me. Only thing that need to be improved is the breakfast. Opt out of the breakfast for a better room price.

We booked this hotel after our arrival in Shanghai. It was comfortable and the view (when booked rivier view room of course) gives you a nice impression of Shanghai. To be honest this was the reason for us to book this hotel. A good start of our visit to Shanghai. It is a kind of luxurous hotel with no special... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night on 17 Oct. The room was hot and stuffy. I called the front desk and management several times and was told differing stories. The front desk told me that they don't switch on the air-conditioning in autumn when the temperature reaches 26deg C. The temperature in my room was 30 deg C!... More

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

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.
