We stayed 2 nights here on our trip around China. This hotel was excellent for our needs. We did not experience any of the negative things we read about below. Either some of these things were fixed or just didn't apply to us. Check-in was easy. Our Chinese-speaking guide handled it, but I spoke English with the staff, as well.... More

The hotel is showing its age, needs a good face lift. The service in general was poor, 12 minutes to register, too many non-English speaking staff at key locations. The room was fine but rather dark, bed a bit too soft. The walk to the Bund is about 20 minutes and Nanjing shopping Mall is about a 10 min walk.... More

This is a very good hotel, centrally located, good varied breakfasts and very helpful front desk staff. Rooms were spacious, well equipped and it was a very pleasurable stay. We were on the 12th floor, and there was no smoke odour, as per other reviews. Great stay.

Stayed at this property for 9 nights. On our 3rd night we noticed some of our recently purchased clothes,footwear,samples were missing.We notified management and at first they were questioning our claims. That same afternoon management arranged a meeting in our room.To our amazement,most of our stolen goods (bar some items) were placed on our bed. We asked what had happened... More

Great location, good breakfast, fair price .... BUT ... Felt uncomfortable with the fact that I was on the 6th floor and the stairwells to the first floor were locked with a sign that said this door will be opened in an emergency. In case of a fire.... Do I trust the young guy at the desk to open the... More

After reading recent reviews we were very hesitant about staying at the hotel. We booked a superior room for 3 nights and received a non-smoking room on the 15th floor facing the roof of another building. The room was terrible with multiple stains on the carpet plus the carpet was dirty. The room was missing an iron and ironing board... More

I fully recommend this hotel. It was clean and central. I do not believe in paying exorbitant amounts for hotel accommodation. As long as it is convenient and clean is all I ask. I thoroughly enjoy my stay at the Bund.

I choose the hotel because it was located at a very convenient place, not too expensive, and because i was on a mission in Shanghai for three weeks. If you are there for a very short period of time, this may be a good rapport budget-location. But if it is for a week, you will leave with a very bad... More
