“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This hotel is amazing! Great location, great staff, great view! Just perfect for a stay in Shanghai. Near everything, with a breathtaking view. Until now, one of my favorites. A must stay if you go to Shanghai!

Room Tip: Choose rooms facing the river and the tallest, the better.

This hotel has everything a demanding client wants.. Service, design, good materials, beautiful views, extremely helpful staff, beautiful rooms.. One word.. It deserves a 10!
The higher rooms will give you a better perspective from the city and night lights...

Room Tip: It is worth to have one of the corner rooms, so that you have the city and river view..

Without doubt one of the best designed and run hotels I in China.

On the one hand, Hotel Indigo is very well appointed. The location is excellent, with impressive views down the river, to the Bund, and across to Pudong. The rooms are stylish and comfortable (this is the feel all those 'boutique' hotels are trying to achieve). The breakfast is superb, and the staff all well trained.

But its the thoughtful little details that make this hotel stand out. The 'Japanese breakfast' came presented in a layered wooden box. The wifi coverage is free, and it's the same network through the hotel, so you're not constantly logging in and out. The massage chairs in the lounge. They even had that critical little white cable to link a MacBook Air to the projector in the meeting room.

This is the kind of hotel that if, like Van Halen, you'd asked them to provide a bowl of M&M's with the brown ones taken out, they would have done it. Full marks.

I loved this hotel from the second they picked me up in an indigo blue e-class Mercedes. The rooms are stylish yet modern, the Bund view is amazing, the wifi is free! Check out the massage chairs & free large screen Macs in the Me-Space before heading up for amazing foie gras at Char Bar. Pool immaculate & always empty, staff helpful & always greet you with a cheery Nihao! Very pleased!

The Bund in Shanghai is a must go - this hotel is 10 min away.
Room is not big but modern decor.
Bathroom is modern.
Free internet but not fast, yet better than those which charge you RMB 120 a day with snail speed.
Breakfast : exquisite.

Room Tip: Ask for advice at the reception - you always get good advice.

Located on the Bund or Waitan as it is known to the Chinese, Hotel Indigo is an excellent hotel of choice for the visitor to Shanghai. Nice rooms with a great view of the Bund and the Shanghai skyline, service is good and efficient and staff are friendly. Rooms have all the standard amenities you expect and the bathrooms are nice especially the shower stalls which are my favorite. Nice outdoor deck on the 32nd floor to take in the views during the nice weather and you will fully understand why it is a great choice to experience Shanghai from.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a room facing the Bund for a great view

This is a very nice Hotel, if you are looking for a quiet location, no many people around, close to the excursion boats, just in the river and very nice views to Pudong.

Not very close to shopping areas and restaurants, shows, bars, or discos.

The place is a kind of a large boutique hotel, good breaksfast, nice bar at the top 34th floor, not easy to communicate with the staff, because not every body speak english, They look to charge you as much they can, I try to get a upgrade with the Platinum Priority Club card and I got nothing.

The rate is the same or higher than other hotels in the shopping and walking area-

Room Tip: Ask for Rooms with a view to the river, it is more expensive but it worth,s .!!
