Hotel Indigo on the Bund has become my go-to place to stay when in Shanghai. The hotel has excellent service and the rooms are lovely. Unlike many hotels they have real personality and great amenities (the bath is big enough for a proper soak). The buffet breakfast has a range of choices both hot and cold, all are of a...

Plush and unique rooms with some exquisite detail.. Great Japanese style toilets and overall incredibly beautiful property. Really something different to staying at one of the more standard five star hotels in Shanghai.

Loved my brief one night stay in this hotel especially taking a bath overlooking Pudong/The bund. Breakfast was great. Staff were friendly at every point. Only slight disappointment was the bar and restaurant at the top of the hotel were closed but I guess this will just take time to get up and running. Great stay.

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.
