Very good location, 5 minute walk to Old Shanghai and Yu Yuan Garden. There's a deposit though of RMB800/pax for 3 nights. That's more than USD100! We didn't expect this amount for deposit, and that took out some of our pocket money even before spending the day in Shanghai! Also, try not to take anything that is not consumable from... More

Not a great experience, at least you dont speak chinese. Not so friendly, nobody is happy to lose 10 seconds with you explaining something. The room was clean but we have booked a 3 beds room and they gave us a 2 beds room + a child bed not so confortable. Next time ill go for other hotel.

Stayed here for a week on a business trip. Despite being surrounded by building sites, (not really the hotels fault) and having a building site view as opposed to a river view, I found my room to be very spacious, clean and quiet. No complaints. Staff were helpful and polite. It's close to the new 'Cool docks' development which has... More

Stayed here recently when visiting Shanghai at the start and end of a tour. The hotel was very clean, foyer immaculate and the staff really helpful. We had two different rooms, both were nice. The only issue with the rooms is the glazing does not really dampen the sounds and the nearby building site was working long hours and noisy.... More

I have stayed at the Riverview Hotel many times in the past few years. And I have seen it in a steep decline. The hotel used to be frequented by independent tourists as well as tour groups and the hotel used to be bustling. Now it is like a tomb and you feel like you are the only one staying... More

Although a reasonable hotel with the potential to be very good be aware that this hotel is currently situated next to a major building site and very near to several others. Work starts at 5:30 in the morning and continues until around 11 at night. As another reviewer has suggested the beds are particularly hard. The position of the hotel... More

Would not recommend this hotel, while only one street back from the promenade it's awkward to get to requiring lots of walking or taxi's. The hotel itself is quite dated, as are the facilities (gym, bar etc) and the beds have planks of wood running down the middle. I'd say the hotel mainly caters to business travellers rather than tourists... More
