When I first saw the pictures provided on the web page, it seems that the room view is stunning, which is actually true. But, let me tell you some more about it first. Yes, it is really great view...river crossing the old and the new buildings...beautiful! But the window in room can be opened in full...just a little by side... More

Situated next to the Russian Consulate, and facing the Shanghai People Yingxiong Memorial Tower just across the Wusong River, this quite ordinary three star hotel has one great advantage over all the others. Provided that you get an odd numbered room (we were in 801) you will have the very best possible view of the Bund, taking in the sweep... More

Shanghai is a large city but the central city river area is fairly compact and this hotel location is good for walking and touring that city experience. There are a number of bars and restaurants in the area that are a good mix of local and semi-western bars also. Make sure to get a river view room - by far... More

We booked seagull scenery suite and it has a great view of the bund. I think it's the best hotel location over viewing the bund. Hotel staffs are not friendly and helpful, so don't expect much from hotel staffs. Wifi is slow. Price for hotel room is reasonable compare to other 4 or 5 stars hotel for the suite room... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of a cruise from Vancouver to Shanghai. The room was clean with a great view of the skyscrapers on the Bund. There is free WiFi in the lobby but its no good for accessing Facebook as the Chinese have a ban on social networking. Not the hotels fault. The staff are... More

Medium level, fairly cost effective with wonderful location, worth it just for the view out your bedroom window. Rooms ok and clean with ok linen + comfy beds. Rather tired hotel but a better location you cannot get - so forgive the flaws, the porters at reception are talented in calling a taxi when required but we mostly walked down... More

Great location but it could be considered expensive bearing in mind the status of the building and service. Views to the city are quite dissapointing. Showers are too old. Part of the staff wasn't too friendly. Breakfast it's too expensive. No Internet in the rooms nor in the hall. It clearly needs a deep refresh.

There was no problem with the room I was provided. It was cleaned well and the wifi signal from my room was strong. However, the staff needs to be retrained in hotel management, and a little bit more English. I was unable to understand the receptionist at check out when she said "we won't be going back to you." After... More

Considering its location, The Seagull on the Bund is a decent hotel for people who are on a budget. The nearest metro station is East Nanjing Road, which is about 15 minutes away from the hotel. That would seems like long distance to walk off but by doing so you can catch a glimpse of the bund on the way,... More

The hotel itself was very nice, and a good location close to The Bund and a 15 minute walk to the train (subway) station. The room (and a co-worker said the same about his) was very damp. There was even mold around the AC vent, assuming due to the dampness. Towels would not dry, my passport even "curled" due to... More

Staying in Hongkou

Neighborhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
