The best part is it's right at the Waibadu Bridge. My room gives me a view of the Bridge and the Bund. So, it's most pleasant. But I have a friend that get me a discount and the guarantee of a Bund-view room. That means, you can't assume the location would mean a lot to you.
If you're Shanghai first-timer, this is not a bad option. It has Waibadu Bridge and then the Bund within walking distance. Particularly, you would find it quite a pleasant walk to the Origin of the Bund (a newly developed Bund heritage). Of course, Nanjing E Road is also a stone away. And then, if you intend to join the Big Tour Bus (double decker for going round the city), the stop is nearby. But you'll need to walk some 10-15 minutes in order to the Nanjing E Road subway station. If you think this is acceptable, you may consider the hotel has a great location.
For the hotel itself, it's a bit of disappointment. With all the special guanxi arrangements, my room -- a room with a view -- was great. But hot water supply for bath in the evening was below standard. And the air-con didn't work well. There are 2 lifts but they were pretty slow. The Chinese reastaurant (which was good and I was told quite famous) was on the 17th Floor, meaning lots of customers would also be waiting for lift service. As a result, you'll always need to queue for getting to the cafe for breakfast or getting back to your room. Quite an unpleasant experience (as there were always groups of loud speaking customers in the lobby).
The hotel itself is a heritage building. Very impressive. You can get a good view of the Bridge and the Bund in the cafe serving breakfast. Regarding breakfast, it's so so. Not bad for a non-international-chain-hotel in China.
