My wife an I stayed at Shanghai Fish Inn Bund for 5 nights in the beggining of September.
The Inn was very welcoming from the minute we booked our room. A few minutes after booking we got a confirmation email that also had a warning about a common scam that many tourists get sucked into so it made us feel like somebody’s taking care of us even before we left to China.
The Inn’s directions from the metro station were great. They recommended exiting the metro station from exit 6 but if you don’t have much luggage you can exit from exit 5 so you’ll be on the right side of the street. If you have heavy luggage, use exit 6 as they recommended (since that exit has escalators) and cross the street.
Our double room was big and had a small balcony and a TV (though it only had Chinese channels). The bed was very comfortable! The mattress was soft, unlike most Chinese mattresses that are very hard.
The inn supplied towels, soap, shampoo, mosquito repelling tablets (to use with an electric device that was in the room) and 2 free small bottles of mineral water per day.
The receptionist had great English and was very helpful when we had questions about Shanghai but also when we needed other help (she called our hostel in Lijiang for us since no one in that hostel spoke English and she gave us a note asking for a train ticket to our next destination so we won’t have any trouble). The lobby has a computer that guests can use and the rooms have cables so you could hook up your lap top for free internet.
The Fish Inn Bund’s location is very good! It’s very close to a metro station, a couple of minutes walk from a small grocery store and a couple of banks, about 10 minutes walk from the Bund and from Nanjing Road. It’s also about 2 minutes walk from a very nice bakery (walk towards the metro station and take the first right) and a small shop that sells “baozi”, which is a steamed bun, that’s delicious!
If we're ever in Shanghai again, we're definitely staying at the Fish Inn Bund!
