We arrived at the hotel at the end of a quite exhausting holiday. Our first problem was that having booked a twin we went to the room to find it was s double. As we are 2 female family members this was just not acceptable. Back to reception , where no one spoke enough English to be able to understand... More

As always, I chose my hotel --- for the last two days of our Cruise Holiday from Sydney to Beijing, with a few days in Beijing and finally Shanghai before we flew home - from Tripadvisor reviews. We are Australian oldies, who have travelled all our lives, and we just love old hotels. We viewed the Seagull from the Bund... More

Stayed here 2 nights in april 2014. The room was not well cleaned, found some half finished cup of tea and a used toothbrush, so the room was not cleaned well or maybe someone used it for a short while. When trying to score a drink it came to a disappointment since the lobby bar shut down at 9 pm.... More

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
