Good location near Huihai Road. Close to subways and bus stations. A lot of local restaurants and bars are nearby. Staff were friendly and speak a little English (the hotel phone service speaks fluent English) Our room was dusty and not very clean. No AC so we have to open the windows at night. rooms need to be updated.

Having already lived in Shanghai, I remember the Donghu Hotel as being a well presented and grand place. So there was disappointment when I was directed down the road to the annex which is very ordinary Chinese hotel. I also noticed other people wheeling their suitcases down the road from the main building to the annex. The annex comes complete... More

My husband and I have stayed here five times, as we live in a small Chinese city outside Shanghai, and come in often for weekend getaways. We have stayed in both the main hotel and the annex. We definitely prefer the main hotel. The annex, while cheaper, is a bit run down, but the main hotel is better appointed. Shop... More

The Donghu is a very comfortable hotel for foreigners. The service is professional, the front desk speaks English, and the rooms have western-style toilets with all the necessary amenities. Breakfast each morning is comprehensive in either a Chinese or American style. Taxi's are readily available at the street. Western-style shopping stores are nearby, and there is also a Starbucks and... More

Stayed here one night, the night before I moved back to the US after living in Shanghai for 2 years. This hotel is in the best location you could ask for. Wonderful restaurants walking distance, the subway is about a 15 minute walk, and perfect streets to stroll on in this area. The hotel service was fantastic. The room was... More

First of all their are two Donghu Hotels literally opposite each other. I mention this as your taxi might get confused. One hotel located at #70 is the older, grander looking hotel from the outside. The guest house is #7 over the street and from the outside looks like a bog- standard motel. There are three very good French cafe's... More

This review is for the Guest House, the older part of the hotel which is suppose to be 4 stars. I booked in Donghu several weeks ago to stay here for the May week holiday. I was excited because I know the FC area well and was interested in the hotel's history. However, after one night, I am checking out... More

After reading the previous reviews I decided to book here, based on the pleasant location and reasonable price. I had requested a room in the main building - I got a room in the annex. I requested a room with a big bed - I got a room with 2 smaller beds. I requested a non smoking room - I... More

Second trip to Shangahi on busines and I have to say that I like the French Concession area. The Donghu is well located with a decent selection of restaurants and shops just a short stroll away. Fun and safe area to explore for a stranger in a strange land. The hotel is divided into a "New" and "Old building. I... More

I was accommodated here by the institution I was visiting. My stay turned out to be very pleasurable, thanks to the superb location, the hotel's high standards, and the enjoyable breakfast buffet. My room was in the main building and was large and attractive, as were the old staircases with their dark panelling and the public sitting areas on each... More
