Location wise, if you book the 'river view room', then you will have a rewarding view over the Bund. The room size is generous, and the fruit basket sent to the room was a nice touch. However, the noise coming from the cruise on the river was seriously too loud. I stayed on the 10F and could hear clearly the... More

The hotel was alright, the room was fine, the level of cleaning was acceptable, but is it too much to ask for someone at hotel reception to speak English? I mean, it is a hotel after all, isn't it? It made communication pretty difficult.

The hotel itself is beautiful, the rooms with a view are stunning. The breakfast is about $20 per person and is more than adequate. I'm not sure if the staff lacked more manners or English, either way a smile might have made world of difference. Absolutely no interest in helping you with any queries, although I did find this to... More

Likes: a great location at the north end of the Bund over the Garden Bridge and right on the confluence of Huangpo River and Suzhou Creek. Unbelievable views. Interesting old building. Dislikes: Late check-in by a reluctant disinterested sulky lady who barely spoke. No night porter (not that we needed one). Filled with noisy people, one of whom yelled into... More

The hotel in question is a hotel for luxury and pomp. It seemed a little dated, so it would be very welcome a renewal. I noticed some seepage near the doorsteps and imperfections inside the room, like the shower working bad, for example. The bedrooms are carpeted, which leaves a smell sick and can cause allergies to sensitive people. The... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night during our business trip to Shanghai. The hotel is perfectly located near the Bund. To take advantage of its location,we booked rooms facing Huangpu River though it was bit costlier than city facing rooms. But, we were surprised to notice dirty carpet inside when we entered into the elevator.Carpet in the corridor... More

It rwally is a shame to stay in this hotel when you are visiting a city with soooo many great hotels to choose from. I did not have much of a choice on this occasion, but I left and moved to Fraser Residence in the French Concession as soon as I could. Mouldy bathroom, smell of sewage, mosquitoes, below average...
