“AMAZING hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

This hotel is worth the price for its view (dude, we had a floor to ceiling window in our HUGE shower). The restaurant is supposed to be amazing, but we didn't get the chance to try it. All in all, even if you can't afford it, at least drop in to the lobby to see the cool design and art installations.

Room Tip: Of course, a bund view is the best. I can't remember which room type we have, just ask for the o...

The design, the service, the detail, the comfort, the quality - all fantastic.
The indigo team strived to deliver a unique quality experience, and they delivered.
The baileys by my bed, the pancakes for breakfast, the great coffee in the cafe - brilliant.
I am in total praise of this hotel.
My room overlooked the river and historical bund strip.
The bed was super comfortable and the design if the room mixing old and new shanghai.
The bathroom with spa shower, bath and great views.
The staff. What can I say. Thank you to all for a great stay.
Will tell all and definitely be back.

Room Tip: Corner river room view. Well worth the upgrade price.

Nice boutique hotel with nice facilities and English speaking front desk. The room is comfortable and equipped with most amenities for a business traveller. From your room, you will get a nice view of the river, both day and night.

I stayed there for my honeymoon last November 2012, the boutique concept is totally well applied.
Location very close to Yu Garden, Financial District, Nanjin Rd.
Staff speaks very good english and concierge very kind and helpful an oustanding job.
Breakfast is just the best quality, affordable fees and exceed the expectation.
Decoration makes the guest feel very comfy in a very modern-chic environment
Every two nights we had in our room a sorprise note and small gift such as snacks or coctails.

I was not in the CHAR restaurant but its terrace offers one of the best view of Shanghai City.

Rocio- Mexico

Room Tip: Choose a river view room, is amazing to see how the traffic never stops.

The styling is unique and tied in with the look and feel of nearby Yu Yuan. The hotel is very comfortable with large rooms and bathrooms overlooking the Bund and Pudong. Locals say the restaurant enjoys some of the best views on the Bund, personally I found the dining room oppressive, in the style of a traditional steak house. The cafe/breakfast area was much brighter in keeping with the quirky styling of the rest of the hotel. A nice experience if you're looking for something a little different from traditional high end hotels.

Room Tip: North side rooms look over the Bund and Pudong

the location, hotel decor and hardware are all good. Generally speaking this is a very good hotel at a reasonable price. However, I'd like to share the following shortcomings that I experienced during my stay -
1) the car park is pretty far away from the hotel building, but I guess not many guests drive anyway
2) the restaurant on 29F is pretty expensive but the food is very average. The beef was really good though
3) power went out in the toilet for a while, electrician came and fixed it within 10 mins
4) operator had an appalling attitude. This was NOT acceptable.

Whoever the female operator was, she needs to be fired. For good

My 4th stay at this property. Very consistent throughout all my stays. Check in is a great experience with personalized service. One of the few IHG properties that acknowledge my platinum status.Leo at the front desk is excellent. Rooms are very comfortable. Bathrooms are very well appointed with an all the options toilet. There is no executive lounge per say as all rooms have access to a lounge type floor with a wonderful full breakfast. The river view is simply amazing. My only beefs about this hotel is the lighting in the bathroom could be a bit brighter and the seating area of the suites do not have a couch that one can sit comfortably. I look forwards to my next stay.
