My team stayed here for around 3 weeks in December, whilst on a business trip. The hotel was an elegant, peaceful environment and spotlessly clean. Breakfast buffet had a terrific selection of both Eastern and Western choices, and no silly sugary rubbish. The rooms were spacious and we all felt really at home. Only a couple of little points which... More

My first visit to Shanghai on a commercial tour, and I was prepared to book Shangri-La hotel for reservation, however the hotel was already booked and decided to check out Oriental Riverside instead. A wise decision I've made after ages. The hotel offers a spectacular riverside view of the 'Bund' which is like the Marine Drive here in Mumbai. The... More

I rarely gave the 'excellent' for my review, so when I did, I meant it! First of all. is its location. A walk distance to every attraction on this side of the Huangpu river. Oriental Pearl Tower is only 10 minutes walk, the riverside is only 3 minutes walk, the 'tunnel of attractions' (shops, submarine adventure, multimedia tunnel) is just... More

We got a room on the garden side of the hotel and stayed at 4 floor. The area is quiet and good. The room was very good and the bed was comfortable. Bathroom had both bathtub and shower. It is short distance to the skyline buildings and short distance to the riverside. There is also many good restaurants in the... More

This is a hotel joined to the conference centre. There were no conferences on at the time so pricing was good. The rooms are a good size, high quality and has free Wifi. It's a luxury hotel standard, near the famous tower and a good place to stay.

We stayed here 2 times in the last two weeks -- coming in/out of Shanghai. We wanted to stay on the Bund, and this hotel had a great view of the river, and was much more affordable than the other big-brand hotels. We reserved the "Superior Bund View rooms" for both stays. After the first stay - I would have... More

Would have scored this a perfect 5 but for the fact that having witnessed proper 5 star surroundings and service at the St Regis in Tianjin, this was not quite at that level. That said, it was very good indeed. We had two rooms to accommodate my wife and I and our two teenage daughters. Slightly frustrating that the two... More

The location is ideal: in Pudong, near the Shanghai tower and the Jin Mao building and new financial district, close from huge department store, the total is in the center of the new Pudong. In addition, the panoramic tunnel makes the hotel few minutes away from the Bund and less than 30 minutes walking off People Square and Xintiandi: just... More

I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of one of my visits.I booked a suite and was given this fantastic room on top of the dome that had stunning views and was a really good size. I have hotel rooms smaller than the bathroom in this suite. The big circular bath and a shower big enough to fit... More

Very opulent looking hotel interior. Ideal hotel for attending conference at SICC. Ideally suited if one is there to attend conference. Rooms are of very good size and very luxurious, but look is bit jaded need refurbishment. Check in and check out was very efficient. Rooms are clean and bed is very comfortable.
