The best thing is that this hotel is located on that side of the river which is opposite to the best tall buildings of Shanghai. So the view is the amazing skyline! I'll post a picture clicked from my room bed. It's a boutique hotel so the rooms are quite unique. The view from the river view rooms is amazing... More

I had a one day stop in Shanghai and a friend insisted that I stay at the Indigo. I'm glad she did. The property is directly on the Bund, just a few blocks from tremendous restaurants. I had a room with a river view and was very impressed. The bed was quite comfortable and the linens well maintained. The shower... More

Having spent many nights in the past in indigo hotel Shanghai, I decided to book for my most recent trip back there. Have to say the quality has greatly declined. I booked a room through Ctrip and when I arrived the room was not as explained on the booking site. When I called reception to ask them they pretty much... More

I could wax lyrical about this place forever so here is what I loved: Stylish and tasteful decoration, incredible attention to detail, beautiful silk painting of The Kiss by Gustav Klimt In lobby. So hip and arty in the rooms- right up my street. Rooms are divine, artistic, a la mode, trendy beautifully decorated. Attention to detail and special touches... More

The Hotel is situated in a perfect place, from your room you can see the skyline. You have easy access to the river walk. There are stores and restaurants underground, so it's cooler as you walk around. The view at night is spectacular. The best thing about the hotel is the staff, they go out of their way to make...

Quirky boutique hotel. You feel at home and welcome. Gorgeous beds really comfortable! Good breakfast. Bar on the top floor which was great although not sure how happy I'd be to pay the table fee at weekends!! Very convenient location for restaurants and a stroll along the Bund. Will be going back! Would stay here in preference to the intercontinental.

First Indigo experience was simply outstanding - I've stayed in many 4/5 star boutiques in the US and nothing comes close to the quality and overall experience. Check-in was a breeze - we booked 2 rooms and were given an upgrade on both due to being Platinum members, as well some drink vouchers for the 29th floor bar. The view... More

This was my first time at Hotel Indigo and I enjoyed my stay though it was not as centrally located as I thought. Even though it is on the Bund, it is at the far end. That said, once you are out on the promenade, it is a pleasant walk to catch the spectacular views of Pudong. The hotel is... More

Staying in South Bund

Neighborhood Profile
South Bund
This waterfront area below the most famous section of the Huangpu River has undergone multiple phases of development that started when the Waterhouse Hotel opened its doors. Though it’s been slower to catch on than people expected, every year something new and exciting opens up and gives people a reason to keep calling the South Bund the "Next Big Thing." There are a couple of landmark hotels and restaurants of excellent quality that serve as anchors, and multiple annual events such as beer festivals, art and fashion fairs and music shows take advantage of the wide spaces, waterfront location and the tiny man-made beach to host huge crowds of people. Wandering about the newness, one can stumble upon authentic Chinese life in the stone gates of people’s residences or the street markets.
