Well-situated near the Bund with clean , well-furnished rooms and exceptionally friendly and helpful staff . I will certainly stay at this hotel if I ever return to Shanghai , despite the exhorbitant cost of coffee . We had two excellent meals in the restaurant , improved by bottles of the cheaper of the two French red wines on offer... More

Staying at the Astor House is an experience itself. With such former guests as President Grant, Charlie Chaplin and Albert Einstein, it's really full of history (I stayed a couple doors down from Scott Joplin's room). The 1st~3rd floor rooms have very interesting placards and photos of the hotel's glory days. The Peacock Room is a very pleasant place to... More

Our family of 4 adults stayed here in January. It was easy to walk out of the hotel and be in either the posh shopping areas, the bund or the local streets with shops selling live fish. Our rooms, 25 and 26 were well appointed and quiet, no views but we weren't concerned about that. There was a kettle in... More

Great, comfortable rooms, food was great, the staff very friendly and helpful and the actual location of the Hotel is a plus if you want to enjoy the Bund and see the new side across the river...

The Astor takes you back in time. Beautifully restored. Service was excellent. Breakfast was plentiful, Western and Asian.Our room was on the first floor. Because of the wooden floors noise can be an issue, but this is part of the elegance. Worth taking the time to check out the upper floors and the corridor along side the elevators up from... More

If you want a hotel with a feel of the old Shanghai splendor and a location close to the Bund without costing you a fortune, then this is your choice. Spacious room with wood floor that cracked a little, a large bathroom. My room had a view of the Bund. The free buffet breakfast locates in its grand ball room--truly... More

a hotel steeped in history, with clean, spacious rooms with every modern amenity, an excellent breakfast buffet,, located right in the middle of the most interesting part of Shanghai, for less than $100! Wifi was a little sketchy, but had more to do with China's mistrust of the internet than with the hotel. Google is blocked there, so if you... More

Tired of all those shinny marble draped characterless, over-the-top hotels in China? Want to get a sense of what staying in Shanghai was really like 150 years ago? Then book a night at the Astor House Hotel and get a feeling for the lifestyle of the rich and famous in the late 19th Century. This hotel is not that grand... More
