The Oriental Riverside Hotel is an impressive Hotel with high quality service and an interesting location. We have previously stayed on the Bund but on this occasion stayed at the Oriental which is in Pudong and close to the Metro Station ( 500 metres) . We stayed in a superb Deluxe Executive Suite with a King Bed and separate Bathroom... More

Not the centre of town, but nice to relax. Gym and pool is worth seeing, fantastic view over shanghai. Look out for the deals online, as you can get a cheap room. Breakfast is very expensive, just pop out on the streets to get cheaper options and more local. Rooms are lovely and very clean.

The Oriental Riverside Hotel is a wonderful hotel! The service is impeccable, the food is delicious and the location is great! The room was excellent, the bed very comfortable, the pillows the best I ever had in any hotel. Unfortunately the in-room safe is not big enough for a laptop and the wi-fi not great, but the wired connection was... More

I recently stayed at the Oriental Riverside Hotel for nine days on a business visit to Shanghai experiencing positive aspects of the hotel as well as some disappointments. The river view room was very spacious with excellent views across the river to the famous Bund. The room and bathroom were well appointed with king bed, marble finishes and pleasant decor,... More

The hotel is located on the water in Pudong, right in front of the Pearl Tower. It makes a great location for a day to tour Pudong, have some nice views of the Bund, maybe take the underpass to Puxi and have a relaxed dinner. There is nothing to do in the area after the evening, All of that said,... More

Next to the Pudong convention center - really same building. Called Bund view - but not all the rooms have views - need to pay more for those (and the view is worth it - always interesting to watch the river morning, afternoon, and especially night after all the lights are on and the show begins). Place otherwise a bit... More

This looks and feels like a seriously expensive and grand five star hotel - and it is, except that with special internet room rates under $100 per night (with internet but without breakfast) even tourists on a budget can afford it. The big plusses are the river view rooms - well worth the small extra cost - and the amazing... More

This is a hotel room that benefits from great positioning - just off the Bund, a quick walk to the famous Pearl Tower and nearby Malls and next to the Convention Center complex. Checkin is relatively painless unless you forgot to request a non-smoking room. Almost all rooms are smoking rooms - good luck trying to sleep in these if... More

This place is so overpriced and overrated. If you are in Pudong for an event at the convention center, stay at the Hyatt or Ritz, which are both in walking distance. Pros of this hotel: -View (the Bund view is truly spectacular although the windows are half the room length) -Breakfast (included and tasty enough although not great) Cons: -Carpets... More
