The décor is dated, so we were a little worried when we arrived. However the rooms are large, the bathroom of our room was amazing! Recently refurbished - large and newly decorated. More modern than the rest of the room. The beds were a little hard for my liking - however I have worked in China for a few years... More

I stayed at the Bund Hotel a week ago for seven nights. My taxi driver knew where it was when I gave him the name of the hotel in Chinese (60rmb from HongQiao). I was impressed when I arrived and the concierge (James) took me up to my room and showed me the room and how the TV worked. I... More

Very Nice Hotel, in good location, and very clean, close to peoples Square and the bund, plenty of shops and restaurants, plenty of hot water for shower, be careful !!! of the people in the streets asking to be friends, or to go and have a cup of tea with them, I think you would end up in trouble.

I was a bit unsure about the hotel when we checked in. It was a bad air day and the hotel smelled strongly of air freshener. The guy checking us in was a bit off hand and I braced myself for rudeness. It didn't happen. Our room was nice. We'd booked 3 single beds and had informed them it was... More

This hotel is well located, walking distance to People's Square and The Bund. There are also plenty of places to eat nearby, and a convenience store just 10 metres from the front door. The rooms are sizeable and clean, with free wifi and water, and a good bathroom with plenty of hot water 24/7. The heating is effective and the... More

The hotel is centrally located and offer a good value for money. Room was spacious and clean. I was on a non-smoking floor, but not sure if that is respected at all times as one could smell cigarette smoke pretty much everywhere in this hotel. If you are interested in a good location, low rate and ok rooms, I recommend... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of December and a further 2 nights mid January. Nice hotel. Would have given a 5 rating except that the temperature in the room was too hot - even though we turned the thermostat down to the lowest setting and set the fan to 'cool' it was still stiflingly hot. We had... More

I booked this hotel through agoda just 2 hrs before I checked in. Upon arrival the rude trainee staff at reception told me they don't have any information about my booking. I informed them to check with agoda as I had booking confirmation with booking I.d. He told me to call agoda and talk to them myself and they will... More

The only good point of this hotel is its location. Except of that, we haven t so much appreciated our stay: - superior room are not well decorated (old style). Only the shower was great. - wifi was not performing well - people at the reception are not nice. They can't smile and are not friendly at all with customers.... More
