This is a hotel initially built in 1846, so it has lots of history - lots of famous people have stayed here, the first stock exchange in China started here in the 1990's - it's a bit tired now, but it's clean and still value for money. Our room was very large and comfortable, with double glaze windows , so... More

We recently stayed here for three nights. We arrived just before lunch on an overnight flight and were given access to our room which was a great bonus. I stayed here a number of years ago and the hotel has had considerable improvements done since then. We had an executive room which has undergone a refit, the room was very... More

We had a wonderful stay for 6 nights - 3 first in a luxury room (free upgrade) then another 3, when we returned to Shanghai, in a cheaper room. The cheaper room had all the amenities of the more expansive room, except its bathroom was smaller and the room didn't have the high ceiling or as much woodwork. Both rooms... More

Stayed 6 nights at this hotel. Rooms spacious and well equipped. Large ensuite bathroom. 2 minutes from The Bund, 15 minutes walk from Nanjing Rd and 30 minutes walk from the famous Yu garden and China Town. Very friendly staff. Rooms on street side are lighter however there is not much of a view.........hotel has got a lot of character!

The Astor House carries you back in time. The pictures on the walls, the wooden stairs and many more things will give you a sense of old China. New Shanghai has grown up around it and often times blocks your views of the river but when you close the windows and the lights go out on The Bund at 10... More

An amazing neocolonial historical building near the river, opening into the fabulous Bund. Rooms are spacious, with gorgeous hardwood flooring. It's totally worth the cost. Don't miss their buffet breakfast. The selection is impressive.

The hotel certainly has a wealth of history and the photo gallery is well worth viewing. We had a Richard Executive Room which was massive with a high ceiling (as you'd expect) albeit somewhat plain and a little damp feeling on arrival (to match the weather!). The beds were comfy and overall the room was appointed well. We had free... More
