Although a short taxi ride (20-30RMB; AUD$5-6) from the main throb of 'The Bund', this hotel is a leader in its class, which is no easy task in China and well worth the experience. We have been going to Shanghai for 23-years, for business mostly, staying in 5 Star hotels and without exception this hotel is a cut above China...

The good points of the hotel are: 1) amazing view to the Bund from the room, that is very spacious and modern. The tub in the room is huge and super romantic! 2) the breakfast has big variety of chinese and western...

We stayed at Banyan Tree in Macau and had such a good experience we were determined to stay at another Banyan Tree property. Unfortunately, the Shanghai property is not in the same calibre as the Macau property and ultimately left us very disappointed. Check-in was overly complicated; it took too long and whilst it is nice they check you in...

Friend recommend this hotel and it's really a fatastic stay. Starting from warm greeting at front door and welcome juice while check in. The room is spaceous and well designed. The night view from room is amazing and also recommend afternoon tea at the roof bar because evening is too cold there. Next time will try the Spa there.

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.
