“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with a two-night stay at Indigo; we were not disappointed. The hip design of the facility is exceptionally appealing with a modern yet warm ambiance. It has the expected conveniences and professionalism of a 5-star hotel, but the room decor and unique design make you feel as if you're in a boutique. You are in walking distance of Yu Garden, and not too far from the Bund. The buffet breakfast is top notch and surprises with unexpected options, presentation and atmosphere. Get a table (or sofa) with a view of the river! Also, we splurged for dinner at Char, and absolutely loved it. It is quite expensive, and the "salt tray" is gimmicky, but the food, wine and service are excellent. Highly recommend this hotel & restaurant.

After my stay in Indigo Tianjin, I was preatty sure that my best choice would be going to Indigo Shanhai. The Hotel is splendid, the City is a dream and was surely one of the best places in the world I have been to. Nihao Shaghai!

Room Tip: Choose the riverfront rooms for the view of Pudong and the urban marvel.

The hotel staff was very helpful indeed, the lobby decor was inspiring, & the room was both modern and traditionally Shanghai. The view on the 30th floor was absolutely gorgeous. The only downside is that you need a cab to go anywhere, and in rush hour, it was not the easiest to grab a cab. But if you don't mind walking, taking a walk along the bund is nice too.

I have already had a chance to stay at this hotel two times. Rooms are nice and service is good. I like the views from the rooms.. Rooms design is also nice and comfortable. Great bar on the roof! My wife and I stayed there for a weekend and we had a great time. Great for a couple get a way....

Greetings Ron E -

It is always a thrill to read a review from one of our local guests who have discovered the amazing combination of design, local touches, spectacular views and the cities top steakhouse which hotel Indigo brings all together right in their own back yard.

More and more local guests are flocking to our hotel over the weekend to enjoy the service and amenities as part of the growing trend of "staycations" and we certainly look forward to welcoming you both back in the near future and would very much like to meet you in person.

With warm regards

Such a wonderful hotel! We stayed for 4 nights & loved it. Great staff, beautiful room & very comfy beds, pretty good location only 10 min easy walk from the main bars & restaurants on the Bund. Views from the pool, the gym, the bar & the restaurant are fab. Honestly, I can't rate the place highly enough! And whilst it's not cheap, I do think you get super value for money for what you get. First rate & would definitely stay again.

Greetings LexieR_12,

Thank you so much for your kind words regarding the hotel Indigo Shanghai on the Bund. It is always so special to read how the amazing hotel facilities, friendly and passionate staff, and unique location offering panoramic views of the Bund and the river provide our guests with the perfect spring board from which to discover Shanghai from.

I do hope we will have the opportunity to meet in person upon your return to hotel Indigo and it will give me a chance to share a cocktail with you in our newly renovated Charbar on the 30th floor with now even more amazing views of the city and boasting a new bespoke cocktail menu.

With warm regards

What a great hotel. Staff and facilities are great. Will be my regular in Shanghai from now on.

I was there on business but had my wife & son in tow, the hotel handled both perfectly.

Great location too and don't forget about the rooftop bar...
