Lovely hotel close to the Bund. Comfortable, clean rooms and bathrooms. Bed was very hard. Staff helpful and polite. Breakfast had a reasonable selection of hot and cold food. Close to local markets. Easy walk to people's square and the Bund. Taxis sometimes had trouble finding the hotel.

We got a very reasonable deal through Agoda but that is no excuse for the Hotel not being up to scratch! When you stay in a 4* Particularly in a major city like Shanghai it is imperative that the Air conditioning works properly. The 1st day when we arrived at 1.45pm we had to wait 45 mins to before room(no.1819)... More

Although it isn't right in the middle of the Bund, it is close enough to walk to in 15 minutes in a slow stroll. The service here is top-notch from the moment you arrive. You ask, they are pleased to help. I stayed here one night on arrival in China and was glad to stay there on my return to... More

From my room I had great view of the Hangpu river. The location is very nice as there are restaurants nearby offering Thai, Indian and Western cuisines.The famous Nanking... More

The hotel looks grand and the initial impression in the lobby gave the same feeling. And then it all becomes apparent. 1. Reception spoke little or poor english. 2.Reception staff looked disinterested or was playing phone game. 3. Breakfast starts at 7am. (business travellers need to have breakfast early - 630am is the latest) 4. The room was huge but:... More

I just finished a 3 day stay at the Riverview Hotel and was very satisfied. The location is great. The Bund, Old Shanghai Street and the Yuyuan Gardens were all easy walks from the hotel. I ate in the hotel restaurant only once, ordering dumplings and mo po tofu from the room service menu and both were very tasty. For... More
