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

We stayed at the Donghu again after 4 years away. Still a comfortable pleasant place to be.Staff are friendly and do their best to help. Having said that ,we were disappointed with the restaurant .It was Chinese New Year and many places closed,so we did try the hotel restaurant for dinner.Many dishes off the menu,and breakfast staff were a bit...

I booked a single room in the main building of this hotel for a short weekend visit in Shanghai. The room was big and the bathroom is bigger than most European-style bathrooms. Great location in the French Concession neighborhood and near very good fusion-type restaurants. Very clean facilities and semi-friendly staff. The interior is a bit old and old-smelling, but...

Hotel has two buildings on opposite sides of the street about 100 m apart, the older building at no. 70 and the newer high-rise annex at no. 7. We stayed in the annex. The rooms were clean and adequately furnished, with two double beds, a desk, and a bathroom. They had wired internet jacks but no wifi. The staff were... More

A client booked me into this hotel as it is near their office. Overall I would avoid this place unless you are on a budget or if you really need to stay in this area. I should qualify my comments as saying I stayed in the "annex" and not the main building. Others who stayed in the main building may... More

Great location in the heart of the French concession. Booked a room with Booking.com and everything at check-in went very smooth. The room itself was clean, but a little bit on the small side. Staff was not mega friendly, though did what they were supposed to do. The room had internet but it was cabled and not wireless (believe there... More

We stayed the night at the Donghu Hotel, before heading to Pu dong Airport to catch our flight back to England. We booked a superior double room for 400 yuan which was OK for our needs we just wanted somewhere to sleep after a bit of sightseeing followed by a sample of what nightlife Shanghai had to offer!
