This hotel is steeped in interesting history. The rooms are large and plain, but comfortable. The location is great so we could walk to lots of places Recommended....we enjoyed our stay here, and would stay again.

Stayed at the Astor two nights only 20/21st September. Mixed feelings, the room on the fourth floor was spacious enough, however splash marks on the walls and peeling paintwork didn't delight. Did ask for a change but unable to so as hotel was full. The decor, history and politeness of the staff is second to none. The Peacock room, the... More

Traveling quite often and staying most of the time in contemporary hotels, I wanted to have a zest of old times while spending a few days in the city for business and pleasure. What an idea! The hotel lobby was undergoing a major refurbishing (of course not an info about this when I made my reservation of a senior suite),... More

Most is already said about this hotel and all the celebrities who stayed here. In my opinion it is the location and the history that make the place so special, The same building in let say any european city... well, it would have been just an old charming hotel.

I was looking forward to my stay at the Astor House as it looked really impressive on the website. I arrived at 3am after a flight delay and was told i'd been upgraded. I ended up staying in a room that supposedly Charlie Chaplin had stayed in twice, and there was a plaque to commemorate this fact. The room was... More

I have stayed here before and wanted to have the Richard Executive Room, with was confirmed when booking. Upon arrival reception installed us in a normal executive room, no doubt expecting to charge the higher price for the Richard room. A complaint gave immediately the correct room, but I had not expected this type of behavior from a hotel of... More

Great location just across the bridge, walking distance from the Bund, where you can take public transport and ferry to Pudong or do a cruise in the evening to see the lights. Rooms are spacious but have seen better days. The splendour of the early nineties has gone and the corners are showing the signs of age. The hotel was... More

I stayed at the Astor House Hotel (aka Pujiang ) with my daughter last week. I absolutely love this hotel, particularly for its history and its charm. I had last stayed there 20 years ago, before it was renovated when it was down on its heals, and I found the renovations both upgraded the hotel and saved a lot of... More

Spent 4 nights in a very spacious, fairly quiet room on the last floor. Booked on line at a convenient price. Very interesting historical building - too bad they were working in the hall, which was dim and dusty. They had better refurbish the stairs leading up to the lift. Breakfast ok.

If you're expecting to Lord it up with colonial charm, then you wont find it in the Astor other, go to one of the generic super sky scraper hotels - where you could frankly be anywhere.
