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

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

Stayed here 22 years ago and loved it despite it being a bit dull and dour as was the way in China then. Stayed here last night for my husband's birthday and just loved it. Check-in was super fast after they found the reservation. The room was spotless and had a little welcome basket of treats. There was a well... More

We stayed here for three nights in August 2013. We (family of four with two teenage kids) had two rooms opposite one another. The rooms were great. Lots of space. My son says that they were the most comfortable beds he has ever been in. Breakfast was also very good. We loved China but let's say breakfast was always a... More
