Rooms vary from area and floor, in style and view, so be clear with your choice. For personal reasons I changed rooms and they were quite different and for almost the same price, the best one was even cheaper. GREAT location Also consider that staff is not (always) English fluent and, although Shanghai is a cosmopolitan city, China is not... More

The hotel is too old, it needs to be upgraded. Upon arrival they gave us a standard room while we reserved a studio at the top floor. After some complains they finally gave us the room we payed for. Overall I didn't like this hotel, definitely too old and not well maintained. The location is perfect, downtown, just 2 steps... More

OK let's start with the good. Star 1. Location. Can't be beaten. Views of the financial district skyscrapers. Close walk to the Bund. Star 2. History. Dozens of old photos around the corridors and open spaces explaining the part this hotel has played with Shanghai's history. "The room President Grant stayed" etc. Star 3. Hotel building. Has that lovely oldy... More

The Astor House is a very Impressive hotel both in public areas and rooms. Bedding was turned down in the evening and tidied in morning while we were at breakfast, which was served in ballroom, and had extensive range. The room we had was very 'national trust' rather than 'coach party' style as described elsewhere. I have been to 'coach... More

We stayed at the Astor House Hotel for 3 nights during our visit to Shanghai in March 2015.This wonderful old hotel, famous in the early 20th Century has been beautifully restored. It is located to the north of the Bund just over the bridge across Suzhou Creek. A great location for exploring the city, although it is about 30 mins... More

We booked this hotel on the recommendation of friends. They told me that I would love it as it was just like stepping into an Agatha Christie novel, and I did love it! A beautiful old hotel that oozed old world charm. The room we had on the top floor was spacious, quiet and had a decent sized bathroom. The... More

I stayed here on my own for 6 nights and it was in the most wonderful location. You can easily walk to the Bund in a couple of minutes. Taxis on the most part were plentiful but obviously it depends on what time of day. Quite a few drivers seemed to stop there for a break! The hotel is the... More

I spent 3 nights at this 1800 and somethinh Hotel. It is conveniently located quite near the Bund but far away enough from its noisy crowd. Rooms are quite large despite the furnitures show how old they're... Staff is smart and also speak english and servioce is good. Nice spot where you can enjoy a lovely staying if not looking...

We stayed at the Astor in March 2015. The hotel retains the charm of being built in the 1840's and the rooms were nice to stay in, but very warm. The staff were fine, the best thing about the hotel for a tourist is the location. Across the corner is the double Camel back bridge and then you are right... More
