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. We found the staff at the Astor very helpful and the architecture of the place is awesome. I think a lot of travellers to... More

We booked this hotel as our first stop off point in China. We booked here because Astor House looked like it had character, colonial charm and spacious bedrooms. What we found was that it was a dilapidated 19th century hotel that was probably, once upon a time, quite a nice place to stay. Ignoring the lurid carpets, ubiquitous building works... More

about this place. The rooms are very nice. Very spacious with this old world feeling. Clean, room done up twice daily. We had rooms facing the back of the hotel. The view isn't nice, but they are very quiet, which they would definitely not be if they faced front with drivers in Shanghai being so fond of their horns. The... More

We stayed five nights in a family suite wth our two young children. I cannot imagine we could hav had a better hotel in Shanghai. We were very satisfied with both the room (huge, clean and super-comfortable), the facilites (beautifull lobby etc. and great breakfast spread) and the service level. Sure, language can sometimes be a challenge, but the staff... More

We booked on the site and got confirmation from Orbitz at noon, the last day of our China trip. We changed hotels just so we could stay in the center and walk back on our last night. We had to go to the airport at 6am next morning. We went to the hotel near 10pm and they said they couldn't... More

Really liked my hotel! Breakfast is so delicious with various kind of food! Location is okay. you can go everywhere by taxi in basic rate. And if you want to go somewhere farther, you can walk to Nanjing East Station and take subway. People are nice but cannot speak English except the reception. Liked the hall with many old photos...

My second experience in Astor House hotel, discovered eight years ago: stil the best location, at the end of the Bund but without its crowd, just after Garden bridge; and the best price for a very good standard hotel, very old fashioned (the first in China, built in 1847 and renewed later). It cannot compare with the luxurious palaces in... More

What a surprise to find this old world gem right next to the bund. Once Shanghai's stock exchange, it's a step back in time from the moment one enters the front door. This theme is maintained throughout the hotel. The food is good and there is a pub which is quaint and intimate, with excellent service. The room was very... More

I liked this hotel very much for staying in Shanghai. Its not necessarily the most central one but location is good. Taxis are so inexpensive in Shanghai so location is not the greatest of the concerns, still when staying at this hotel you can go walking to the bund at night to see the lights show at Pudongs skyscrappers.

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
