Walk across the road and you are on the Bund. You can stroll along the river front and view the amazing skyline on the far side. The hotel has enormous leather seats in the foyer, the rooms are a good size. You will not have a good view of the river despite the hotel name. Breakfast is good but not... More

Arrived at the hotel after a scary taxi ride from the airport. It was very late at night and very we were tired from the plane trip. The gentleman at reception was quick and helpful. We went to our room and was met with a very hot and stuffy room. After trying to get the air conditioner to work it... More

Extended my business trip to a personal trip by 2 days and stayed back in Shanghai to look around. Was hunting for a budget hotel with decent hygienic room and located within the prime area of the city....and found a Gem - Riverview hotel! The hotel is located just in front of the Bund - the major tourist spot. The... More

A comfortable hotel well situated and close to the delights of Shanghai centre. They offer a menu in the evening with some well known western food dishes on it. Give it a miss they haven't got a clue.

I would say the hotel is just above average, and not really catered for foreign business travellers. You do get the usual business amenities cramped in but not in a spacious way, you don't even have a proper desk. TV, well, you get most of the local channels, plus a couple of foreign ones, but no foriegn news channels. The... More

I really like the hotel & I found everything perfect but the staff doesn't speak English Perfect food, Perfect rooms. The bathroom is really nice & clean, it's a good size room. Really close to the city center & if I went to Shanghai again, I'll stay in the same hotel.

A group of ladies, none under 66 recently stayed here for 4nights before getting onto a cruise ship leaving from Shanghai. Lovely hotel, breakfast was extra and well worth it. Handy to the Bund and walking distance to Old Shanghai. Beds were hard but we have been told that is normal for China. David, the manager on duty was wonderful

When checking in, we were required to pay 150% of room rate & told we would receive refund when we left. On checking out, I not only had to insist on being refunded money & waited 20 minutes for it, but later found out that 1,000 yuan of the 1,150 yuan refunded was COUNTERFEIT MONEY! This may reflect on the... More
