The hotel in a prime location with a beautiful view of the Bund(that's what you pay for). The rest of the reviews are all true as the the rooms are a bit stuffy but still clean,night reception was not very friendly.

Location location location! This riverfront restaurant has probably the best view. The food is great too. You can choose western food or Chinese food. I had the best braised pork in Shanghai style at this restaurant. It was a perfect dinner on the Bund!

The view from my room was good, but that was the only redeeming point of this hotel. The rooms were old, slightly dirty and had a musky smell. I was not going to leave a bad review but I just discovered that they had charged me for my stay in SGD instead of the local currency RMB, which I had... More

I have stayed at this hotel on two occasions. It has a river view and is situated on the Bund overlooking the Pearl Tower. If you book a river view, you can relax and watch the pretty lit tourist boats going to and fro at night - wonderful experience. If on a bed and breakfast basis, there is something for... More

When I first saw the pictures provided on the web page, it seems that the room view is stunning, which is actually true. But, let me tell you some more about it first. Yes, it is really great view...river crossing the old and the new buildings...beautiful! But the window in room can be opened in full...just a little by side... More

Situated next to the Russian Consulate, and facing the Shanghai People Yingxiong Memorial Tower just across the Wusong River, this quite ordinary three star hotel has one great advantage over all the others. Provided that you get an odd numbered room (we were in 801) you will have the very best possible view of the Bund, taking in the sweep... More

Shanghai is a large city but the central city river area is fairly compact and this hotel location is good for walking and touring that city experience. There are a number of bars and restaurants in the area that are a good mix of local and semi-western bars also. Make sure to get a river view room - by far... More

We booked seagull scenery suite and it has a great view of the bund. I think it's the best hotel location over viewing the bund. Hotel staffs are not friendly and helpful, so don't expect much from hotel staffs. Wifi is slow. Price for hotel room is reasonable compare to other 4 or 5 stars hotel for the suite room... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of a cruise from Vancouver to Shanghai. The room was clean with a great view of the skyscrapers on the Bund. There is free WiFi in the lobby but its no good for accessing Facebook as the Chinese have a ban on social networking. Not the hotels fault. The staff are... 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.
