Even though it is called Riverview, we did not get a view of the river which was very disappointing. Our room was spacious, the bed was as hard as concrete but the shower was great. The english of the people working there was not very good so they were no help to us. Once we got our bearings we found...

We stayed here at the end of our short tour of China and were disappointed but it was only for 2 nights. Wouldn't want to stay longer. POSITIVES: The hotel is in a great location, just a short walk from The Bund river area which has wonderful city views and is a great place to stroll. Our room was large...

A decent option on the bund (river) in Shanghai, but definitely not a 4-star hotel; Decent rooms at the given price point; Poor WiFi connectivity and limited food option, both in the room service and in the restaurant; Breakfast options are also limited; The river-view rooms have good view of the river (Huangpu) and also the key skyscrapers on the...

We stayed (four adults an one child) at Riverview hotel for two nights in april 2017. We hired one room at the 10th and one room at the 15th floor. The room at the 15th floor was upgraded. Both rooms was spacious enough for us. Good chinese breakfast. Ideal location to visit the attractions in the central parts of Shanghai,...

Located in Huangpu district, by the river, between the classic area of the Bund and Yu grarden, this hotel is a good solution. Seems to have everything, nice, clean rooms, nice prices, good service, still you always feel that the people working there, could have done so much better if they put on a smile, be faster and involve more...

Hotel included in tour of China, stayed 2 nights, reception looked impressive, rooms slightly tired looking and worn round the edges, but was clean and well appointed. Good free wifi. Good location, 10 min walk to the Bund. Breakfast buffet adequate for needs but nothing special.

Completely underwhelmed with this complex ! When attempting to book in at their reception we had to wait while they went looking for a staff member who spoke English ! Eventually we got through this process and directed to our room on the 12th floor. The room was very spacious and the ensuite passed muster. The matress was rock hard...

The Riverview Hotel is very nice and you can't beat the location with views of the river and partial Bund views. Lobby is nicely decorated however the check in area is a bit unconventional...no check in desks, just 4 tables lined together for checkin, information and currency exchange. My main complaint is this hotel is HOT! The rooms are unbearably...

Nice hotel close to the Huangpu river, just 100 meters away from the famous Bund and the sightseeing spots. Walking distance from the old neighbourds and markets full of tourists. Breakfast is ok, a lot of Chinese type of foods with some western standard items. Rooms comfortable and cozy,but our view was not the best. Very good value for money.

Hotel is tired Old Prostitute hotel Don't go there Lobby is nice but lights turn off at night. No staff. Front desk staff terrible Not inviting Possibly a long time ago 30-50 years it was good but now needs a total renovation and new management Alternative is to renovate it and make it serviced apartments I would never stay there

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the streets that serve as the border to the old city. An aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan (which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists every day, but wandering the streets around the complex reveals more exciting attractions such as food and antique markets. There are also streets lined with shops peddling everyday wares such as Chinese dining ware and craft notions that can be even more enticing to visitors uninterested in the usual tourist fare.
