The room is well appointed and has very good size. It has a great view of downtown Shanghai. The staff is accommodating. The breakfast is above average with that staff being particularly attentive. I like the workout area. Plenty of weights and aerobic workouts to choose from. The room was very comfortable and the bed was excellent.

This is my 2nd visit in this hotel after a long time. I could not recall anything negative from my last stay. But it is kind of negative this time. The air condition is not working in the first room and moved to another room, usual fancy Indigo room. It is definitely not exactly well maintained. Curtain control switch is... More

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.

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.

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.
