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
