Travelling with a group of 5 to Shanghai we had to book a room last minute for one night and online this was one of the cheapest. To our surprise the hotel more than exceeded our expectations, beautiful big clean suites and very quick checkin with English speaking receptionists. The hotel is situated on the Bund and we had a...

I was in this hotel for a meeting and to visit Shanghai. They took on my arrival what they said is a "deposit" and ask me to pay the bill at the end. The only problem is that this "deposit" was charged to my bank and they asked me to pay two times (deposit + final bill). I knew that... More

Nice place close to the bund. Very friendly staff. Staff at reception speak good English. Fabulous breakfast. This is NOT one of the budget hotels. Free Wifi. Great views if you manage to get a room facing the river.

I've only made one trip to China and this is the hotel I stayed at, so I really don't have anything to compare it to, but I don't see how you can have a nicer location in Shanghai than this one. It is right next to the Oriental Pearl Tower and right across the river from the Bund area. The... More

We stayed here 6 nights, first impression - luxury. Huge halls, big and beautiful atrium, very polite and helpful staff. Room standard is high - comfortable bed, nice bathroom etc. The most of staff speaks good English and help us whatever we asked about. The hotel is located 5 min walk from Luijazui metro station, oriental pearl tower, super brand... More

The more I visited Shanghai, the more I just like this hotel. This time as it was fully booked I never got a riverside view, but had to be convinced by a garden view. To say the truth, the view makes a difference but nevertheless the rest of the proposed items from the hotel are still very good. Don't miss... More

This was my first visit to Shanghai and booked a riverside room. I was pleasantly surprised with the room decor, amenities provided and lovely views through the French windows. Staff is courteous and helpful. Hotel bar on Saturday night was empty but anyways who cares to sit in the hotel when you can just walkout to Pearl tower, IFC mall... More

The Oriental Riverside Hotel is located very centrally in the financial district of Shanghai. Right near the river, the Oriental Pearl TV tower and lot's of major shopping and attractions. The rooms were very nice and if you are located on the right side of the hotel, the views of the Bund are amazing.

This is a rather large hotel that is located in the heart of Shanghai’s Financial and Trade zone, adjacent to the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and facing the multinational styles of architecture along the Bund across the Huangpu River. The views of the Bund from the hotel were spectacular and it is co-located with a convention center where our conference... More

Shanghai Pudong Oriental Riverside Hotel A typical China 5-Star hotel, good value for money and has all the expected amenities including a large safe for your notebook. Strangely enough, the kettle and coffee cups are hidden in drawers, and one wonders how long they have not been used (or checked for cleaniness). For once it is nice to see some... More
