Some people like brand new furniture, ride in ultra modern elevators and mingle in lobby full of glass and the finest sofas. That would be a Grand Hyatt which has not much in common with Astor House. Personally I absolutely love this very old and unique hotel that's so full of character I will forever compare all hotels to this... More

The Astor House Hotel: this is certainly one of China's last remaining elegant hotels. It combines the classic style of Victorian architecture with all of the modern day mod cons! We had 3 days and 2 nights here in Shangahi at the Astor House hotel. It was beautiful, the staff were very helpful and obliging. The breakfast, taken in the... More

Dear guest,The Astor House Hotel is a distinguished gathering place for both Chinese and foreign political figures, as well as well-known celebrities. Dignitaries such as Albert Einstein, Charlie Chaplin, Russell, and Zhou Enlai, have all stayed at this hotel. The Astor House Hotel is a place where Chinese culture and western civilization converged. The first electric lamp, the first telephone,... More

This hotel was just what I expected, an 1846 hotel built and decorated in a grand style. The outside is a beautiful example of the architecture of the period and is right at home in The Bund. Once inside you step into a truly beautiful foyer with the columns graced by photos of famous people who have stayed here, such... More

My son and I spent 2 nights at the Astor House Hotel. I checked out several other places and the price for the proximity to the The Bund is very reasonable. The hotel is just over a little bridge from one end of The Bund (not too far from The Peninsula Hotel). We had a very spacious ground/basement-level floor with... More

We really enjoyed our stay, as the Hotel has a great location, spacious rooms and an interesting history and decor, but it could do with a bit of TLC. Staff were good, the little cafe in the foyer very good. Biggest issue was the road noise. I would stay here again, but a few improvements and it would be a... More

Stayed there last weekend. Guess my expectations might have been a little too high from reading the other reviews. There are really only two things to recommend the hotel--the location and the great history. However, really pretty run down, front desk would not even let us have 2 room keys and were very unhelpful when we were looking for where... More

Hotel is in a great location. It was pouring rain and taxis kept passing us up. The front desk basically said we were out of luck. The bell man on the other hand found some umbrellas for us that were checked out to us for a deposit. The room was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. The hotel itself was caught... More

now as other reviewers have said this hotel is only for the historically minded if you like spacious rooms that have wooden floors and pre WWII decor, great views of the Bund, incredible public areas and reception rooms then this place is good value for money.. better, almost than neighbouring Broadway mansions where i normally stay, except that the latter...

We chose this historical hotel for its marvellous location on the Bund and booked a penthouse room. However the category could be a little misleading: the penthouse rooms are not the double-storey glass-walled, glamour-puss rooms of say, Las Vegas, but merely good-size rooms which have been tucked under the building's roof, much like a Parisian garret - with none of...
