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. Still, the history and the hotels iconic status in Shanghais turbulent... More

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. 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
