Would stay here again. It's located on the same road as the Bund, just a short distance from the main area. Staff were very helpful but they are used to business travellers and did not understand why we would want to catch the subway. They told us it was too far to walk to, but it was only 15 mins...

The hotel is well located close to the bank of the river and confortable. Rooms are large and clean with a good service but the staff is not really Customer oriented and try to overcharge the clients.

I stayed at Riverview Hotel for one day and had the worst experience. The front desk manager was so rude. After complaining about their bad service and requesting to speak with a supervisor, they refused. This hotel is not expensive and it is because customers don't ever go back. Don't stay at this place unless you want to ruin your... More

I stayed in this hotel for few days while visiting Shanghai. I chose this hotel because it was relatively close to the center. It was very easy to travel from there to the center. Moreover, it is in walking distance from the famous Bund area. I could choose other hotels which are closer to the center, but the prices were... More

Stayed here for three nights as part of china links tour. The bed was huge but hard. The hotel is well situated for walking on the bund and has lovely views of the river. Breakfast was good with plenty of variety and helpful staff.

Like a lot of Chinese hotels the entrance suggests a luxurious and clean establishment with capable staff. The bigger the disappointment when it appears not to be. Our luggage did not arrive with our flight and we instructed the staff (in Chinese) to inform us as soon as it would be delivered. When we went out for diner that night,... More

Room was okay, functional and not fancy but clean. Staff very few speak English and not too professional, doing their job without passion. Ambience too much old local style of decoration. Good for one night and not expensive. .

We arrived at Riverviw at 12:45 am - the lobby is very nice. A lot of people have been there to take care. The staff does speak english but not that well. So if there would be a problem for example you don't understand how your invoice is created what irritated us than it can be very difficult to discuss... More

Staying in South Bund

Neighborhood Profile
South Bund
This waterfront area below the most famous section of the Huangpu River has undergone multiple phases of development that started when the Waterhouse Hotel opened its doors. Though it’s been slower to catch on than people expected, every year something new and exciting opens up and gives people a reason to keep calling the South Bund the "Next Big Thing." There are a couple of landmark hotels and restaurants of excellent quality that serve as anchors, and multiple annual events such as beer festivals, art and fashion fairs and music shows take advantage of the wide spaces, waterfront location and the tiny man-made beach to host huge crowds of people. Wandering about the newness, one can stumble upon authentic Chinese life in the stone gates of people’s residences or the street markets.
