Given some of the negative reviews, I was apprehensive about our booking. However, I am delighted with our stay. The room is large, clean and charming. The bathroom is great, plenty of room and good towels, robes and slippers. I love the atmosphere and the history, so thumbs up from me.

Charming hotel just as I imagined. Room was great with a huge renovated bathroom, strangely, fitted with an automatic blind separating it from the room proper through a giant plate glass window.Not really sure of the pur[ose of having the blind up unless you like looking at the bathroom or enjoy watching people use it. We stayed in a Richard's... More

If you want a moderately priced hotel right on the Bund, Astor House can be your choice. My daughter and I got a room in the old part of the hotel - an enormous room with fireplace and nice woodwork. It had an old colonial style feeling, like if you had stepped back in time.

This hotel, built over 150 yeras ago, is a tour in history. Every lamp, ceiling light, column head, is a reminder of times past. The refurbished Peacock Room is splendid, though its dignity seems to suffer a bit as it now serves as the venue for the breakfast buffet. The lobby cafe was enjoyable, if a bit expensive, and we...

I always love staying at historic hotels. With a long list of famous people having stayed here, including US president Grant, Bertrand Russell, and Charlie Chaplain, I was very excited to give this place a try. Unfortunately, when we checked in, we were given a room that was not cleaned after the previous guests. This meant a stripped bed, full... More

This is a historical hotel, but adjusted with all elements you need today. The breakfast is served in a room that once was probably a balroom. The atmosphere is just great. We visit this hotel twice and both times our rooms were perfect. Bathroom is spacy, the beds are good. The hotel is nearby the Bundy area and about 30... More

This hotel is very nice, and has a lot of history, which shows. You can either decide that the whole experience has a vintage feel to it or that the place looks dated. I go with vintage. Astor House Hotel is extremely well located, within walking distance of the Bund and a Starbucks. My room was clean, quite big, quiet... More

Staying in Hongkou

Neighborhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
