The hotel is fine with clean rooms and huge beds. However, if you come as a non-Chinese speaking person and expect to meet English speaking staff, you should look for another hotel, because this staff can hardly explain that you need to make a deposit on your credit card which is given back to you when you leave. The hotel... More

My wife, kids and I stayed for a week in July. In terms of pro's, great location, if you want to walk to the Bund (5 mins), Yu Yuan Gradens (5 mins), Fuxing Park (1 min), subway station (10 mins). Rooms were a good size, everything worked as it should. At the end of the room, overlooking the restaurant we... More

Location is superb; 5 mins from the Bund and walking distance to many major attractions and public transport. Clientele mostly Asian. Beds are firm, clean and comfortable; teamaking facilities in room but suggest you bring your own teabags, sugar, etc. Breakfast is included and contrary to previous reviews there is an extensive selection of delicious hot and cold dishes, but...

For a 4 star hotel, spacious & comfortable enough, not having wifi or wlan in room killed any deal: I didn't have a cpu with me nor a local mobile plan. For me a night costed $93 dollars, even the cheapest hostel I've been to have wifi throughout. It is quite a central location though with Yu Yuan and markets... More

Arrived at the Oriental Bund for a 4 night stay in Shanghai, location is pretty good, an easy walk to the Bund. Location is slightly ruined by the multiple building sites around the hotel, currently there is a decent view of the Pudong buildings from the understaffed/inattentive hotel bar, this will disappear once the nearby buildings have been completed. In... More

The only problem is that this is not a 5 star hotel, maybe 4 stars The rooms was small, but modern and clean. For a hotel with receiption in 8th floor the lift wasis slow. Sometimes waiting more than 5 minutes for lift. In the restaurant they had a lot of young unskilled people working. More interested to talk with... More

I booked at last minute because of its location which was awesome- could not be faulted because as soon as you walked out you were in old Shanghai. The room was small and tired but spotless. The staff were friendly but had very little english but this did not stop them trying to help. They had no iron but the... More

Ok the only good thing about this hotel is the location coz it's close to the Yu Yuan gardens. But other than that there is nothing great about this hotel. First of all their reception is like located on the 8th Floor or something. So there is no bell boy or concierge to greet you or to take your luggae... More

Hôtel very clean, Nice rooms very comfortable. If you are lucky you could have a view on the financial district and the TV tower. Excellent buffet for breakfast, wifi available in the lobby. Terrace with a view over Shanghai (unfortunately not the most interesting view). Certainly a good hôtel to stay in Shanghai.
