A friend suggested me to stay there to experience the unique interior design features of this hotel located on the Bund in Shanghai.
The design features are unlike the usual 5 star hotels in Asia, they are very heavy on individualism design cues and reminisce of the old Shanghai in 1930s. I was born in Shanghai so I could relate.
I was on my own and only stayed there for 8 hours for sleep so i got a standard room which I have to say was a little small in size however filled with amenities. Spacious bathroom though.
The breakfast area had nice views over looking the HuangPu River and architectures on both sides of the river which was refreshing in the morning.
All in all, interesting experience.
