If you're looking to stay on the Pudong side of Shanghai and need accommodations that are more 'residence' in style, then you can't really go wrong with the IFC. Located right above the IFC mall, the residences are modern and clean with fully equipped kitchens. The room we had also had a washing machine in it. The beds were very...

Wonderful hotel/residence with great breakfast. The staff were very helpful and the location was great for access to the sights on the Bund. It was difficult to find the IFC Residence as the entire complex is called the IFC Mall and there are at lesat 2 major business towers. Most taxis will drop you off at the Ritz Carlton entrance...

I was attending a conference at the Ritz-Carlton, which is also part of the same building as IFC Residence, along with a high-end shopping mall. There is a subway stop right outside the door, which makes getting around very easy. The room was very comfortable and I enjoyed it very much. Upon check-in I was upgraded to a 2 bedroom,...

We tried the 2.5 room during CNY there. It is a servicing apartment actually. My wife loves the washing/drying machine very much, it helps a lot when we go back home. There is a shopping mall underneath which provides plenty of eating choices. The only cons is the breakfast, which provides only a small variety of food every morning.

Hotel setting is nice although lounge area on lobby was smelly. Service was very basic, nothing impressive. We booked for five nights and from second night they did not replenish toiletries. We rang to ask for refills and they said hotel ran out and suggested we go buy at convenient stores close by. They were quite stingy on drinking water...

I can't really think of anything bad to say about this hotel. Rooms are actually more of a serviced apartment, which makes it much better than a hotel IMO. We stayed in one of the two bedroom suites. Beds and pillows were really comfy, they provide lots of free toiletries, bathrooms were spacious. The suite itself is perfect in size....

Neighborhood Profile
Lujiazui
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
