Beware when booking a River View Room. First, it's more a partial river view with mostly contruction site view. Sad that management is not checking their rooms, specially when you don't have proper drainage in sink and showers. The worst on my recent stay was the toilet smell that I everyday reported to reception before they put in another room... More

I have stayed here and reviewed it several times and it is never disappointing. The location and views are wonderful but it is the staff and service that makes this the best place to stay in Shanghai.

This past August, we spent two of four nights in Shanghai at Hotel Indigo. While we preferred our initial location in the French Concession due to nearby restaurants, bars, and nightlife, Hotel Indigo provides an excellent alternative for those wanting to experience the Bund, Yu Gardens, and have postcard worthy photos. Checking in the afternoon, we were pleased to be... More

This is the place to go if you want a fabulous view of the river and the new bund/city skyline. It has the most enviable position and also has a great roof top bar "Char Bar which looks out at the beautifully lit city. It's tad pricey, but absolutely worth a visit. There's also the Char restaurant - again not... More

Disappointing Service in a Well-Designed Space. My wife and I reside in Shanghai, and we decided to take a one-night vacation at Hotel Indigo, looking forward to the design, the view, and the service we had read about. Of course, the design and the views did not disappoint, but I'm afraid that much of the service and some of the... More

We stayed at Hyatt (Chengdu), IHG (Shanghai), Hilton (Xian), Westin (Wuhan), and Renaissance (Beijing) during our trip. We have comparable non-basic non-top status for all chains. This is the second best among the five, partly due to that we did not request any special service, given we know our way around by now. We have tried our best to visit... More

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst we are travelling in Shanghai for a week. Hotel indigo was very funky hotel with cool furniture and atmosphere in the lobby area.

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.
