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...

Hotel Location - Sleazy and Noisy Across from a traditional greasy and grungy motorcycle repair shop. Less than a block from the most disgusting little street shops and restaurants. Come out of the front door after 9pm to be greeted by a barrage of pimps and prostitutes. They were very low dollar call girls, it seems the ones with teeth... More

Just ten minute or so walk to the historic river area to see old bank buildings and very expensive nice hotels and restaurants. Very affordable location with big nice and clean rooms. Internet and TV connections good, nice bathroom. Average breakfast and dim dead bar, staff mildly interested in you.
