We were in Shanghai for only one night and wanted to eat and venture near the Bund and discover the Imperial City. Both were accomplished with ease due to the convenient location of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and room was so beautifully decorated, not to mention the killer view of the Shanghai Tower and PuDong.

A pleasant stay in a good, but arguably overpriced, hotel on the Bund with superb views (if you book the river view room). The breakfast was good and the room was well equipped, with a particular highlight being the bathtub with a view of the river in front, and a TV conveniently behind it, if you manage to get tired...

The hotel offers some nice views but not the best among hotels around the Bund. Nice room and bed, I enjoyed the breakfast.

This hotel sits on the edge of the River Bund and offers great views of the surrounding area, particularly at night. The service through out the hotel is excellent and the bedrooms are really well appointed & comfortable.

A small, cozy yet professional hotel. Wonderful, friendly and competent (English speaking!!) staff. Great breakfast, fantastic views, cool Bar. Right on the Bund it offers a great starting point to discover the city. The bathrooms were very well equipped, with a splendid city view from the shower!

The view from our room is gorgeous, just facing the bund. The staff also recommended us to visit the gym and pool. The view there is also very good, though the weather at that moment is suitable for swimming. The decoration of the room is very Chinese-fashioned. We really like it.

Never been to the south of the bund and here I am. Location: A tad south of the bund. On a good day, perhaps it is a good walk to the bund but it was not great when I was there. Hence, this hotel is not exactly where the center of activities are on the bund. Room: Very nicely decorated....

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.
