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

Stayed here for a few days as a base to hunt for apartments. We were upgraded to a room on the executive floors which was nice, but what was strange that the complimentary breakfast on the 22nd floor is only served from Tue-Fri. There is a Family Mart conveniently located next to the hotel and if you want a good... More

Loved this hotel, rooms were reasonably priced and most important its very clean. Beds were very comfortable more like a local five star hotel. Walking to peoples square is about 15-20mins, if staying in river view rooms you can get a great view of the bund. The food at the chinese restaurant was good but the room service food was... More

Do not understand the negative reviews. Rooms were clean and large. Beds though were on the very firm side. Bathroom was clean/large with both shower and tub. 10 minute walk to Bund, Nanjing Rd or subway stop. Staff was nice. Chinese/western buffet breakfast had large selection. One of the few places where the WiFi actually worked.

We got in late (early hours of the morning) to this hotel and found the staff at the desk very good, but at the hour we arrived thought they would show us where to go. As we were a good distance from the reception. We were in the old part of this hotel but we didn't mind our window very... More

They were rude and worst place I've stayed in Asia for any level of assistance and breakfast was a joke! Booked and paid for 3 nights and they then charged me again for extra night at full costs so I just stayed for the 1 what a rip off.

3 nights in August went well considering the great property and location adjacent to Nanjing Road. Executive floor plan has incredible bathroom and the hotel is kept up impeccably well. Service and food were both positive experiences. Will return to this property next visit to Shanghai.

Reading some previous horror stories as reviews, I was quite afraid when I realised our travel agency booked this hotel. Luckily they were mostly false. The hotel is 10 mins from People's Square subway station (and not East Nanjing road as indicated on Google), and 10 mins from the Bund (the south part). The hotel is clean with everything needed...

Our flight was delayed from Guilin so we arrived very late in Shanghai. Because of that so we also arrived almost midnight at the hotel. Our tour already booked the hotel for us. 2 no smoking rooms. But turned out only one was located on no smoking floor. So we went back to the front office. They just replied "there... More

The name "The Bund Hotel" is a misnomer. I say this because this hotel is nowhere near the Bund. It is not within walking distance or anything, so it's only named this way to trap unsuspecting tourists who wish to have an authentic hotel experience staying on the beautiful bund, only to realize that the bund is a few kilometers...
