it's a really cool boutique hotel by the BUND (slightly off)... with great walking paths and restaurants nearby. the hotel itself look great but attention to details do lack a bit. No facility inhouse so you'll have to go explore around the area. great place to bring a date

The design of this hotel by Neri & Hu was the main reason to visit this hotel. Thinking that it was done 10 years ago, you can imagine how groundbreaking the design must have been at the time. The combination of old and new is very well executed and they have a very nice selection of designer furniture spread around the hotel and rooms. However, after 10 years, you already see some wear and tear. The room was very clean though, so props to housekeeping! The location is very nice by the river and there’s an esplanade that allows you to walk all the way to the Bund. If you stay here, I would not take the breakfast. It was included in our stay, but you only get one hot drink (plain coffee or tea) and a plate with an English breakfast of beans, eggs, sausages and hashbrowns. It is prepared à la minute, but frankly it wasn’t very good. And the staff at breakfast speak no English whatsoever, so I couldn’t explain that I’m vegetarian. All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel, but don’t pay extra for the breakfast and make sure not to pay too much for the room.

After asking for a table with a view at the restaurant, we discovered on arrival that the roof top was still under construction and there was no view! Having said that, the meal was really good, even though there were some items not available on our visit. Food was hot and tasty. If you can get onto the roof, the views are amazing

We enjoyed our stay here. Just across the road is the Bund with a lovely elevated walkway that leads all the way up to the central Shanghai. Well lit and lots of security so we felt safe walking back quite late. Same with the walk to the metro which is about 15 minutes away. Breakfast was good and the staff helpful granted as with much of China english is not their first language. Area is much quieter than the city with an artist complex over the road and some new restaurants.

If you like something different, if you are a couple visiting Shanghai who wanted a hotel near town and yet, quietly tucked away from the buzz ... this hotel is probably a good choice. Not so suitable for business trips in my opinion, but we did ok. Rooms are different, contemporary, spacious and clean. Breakfast is a little boring and bars closes early. The fusion menu were interesting, and some dishes scored well. There is no gym but sitting right next to the bund, means a pair of good jogging shoes should suffice for a good 10-15km run.
