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

The hotel itself is okay, it´s a 100% business & convention hotel situated 2 blocks from Linjuan metro station. Great location. But, if we talk about service the hotel is really bad. No one speaks good english (as in the 99% of the people in Shangai) , neither in the receptionists, the concierge, the bell boys. No one. Besides, they... More

This hotel is adjacent to the Shanghai International Convention Center, so I stayed here to attend a conference. When I first checked in I confirmed a king non-smoking room, but apparently they didn't have one for me, so they put me in a twin non smoking for a night and I moved to my real room the next day. The... More

I think that most of it is said in the title. The rooms are good, bed was very comfortable in my opinion. The curtains are thick and don't let the sunlight enter the room in the morning so sleep quality was good. However, it was impossible the whole time to connect to the wifi, and we were not the only... More
