Everything about the hotel was top class- the staff, location! The breakfast and overall ambiance. Stafff were willing to assist with directions and assist with the language barrier with our driver. The hotel local location was beneficial for night walks to surrounding attractions

We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the executive floor so had a lovely room that was really quiet. Double glazing meant there was no street noise whatsoever. Very fancy toilet/bidet! Staff were really attentive and we got to have breakfast in the executive Lounge at the top of the hotel which had fantastic views of Shanghai. Next day... More

We enjoyed two nights in the Bund Hotel as the final part of our 13 day China tour. We had stayed in many four star hotels in that time, but the Bund exceeded them all. We were given a suite, we believe an upgrade, and it was wonderful with two toilets, huge marble bathroom (the shower was great), separate office... More

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.

Economy hotel , food is more or less prepared as per both chinese and western style . be careful not to fall into the traps set by people following you in the streets offering massage & sex who have hand in hand with gangsters & (possibly local police) waiting to take all you have by force as soon as you...

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
