This hotel is only just off the Bund and is in a great location. We paid about £53 per night and got a massive room with a brand new ensuite. Had a view of the Bund / Pudong from the bathroom. Don't really know why this hotel has not decided to go more up market considering its location which 5 star hotels such as the Peninsula only minutes away.
This Victorian era hotel has a lot of history with a lot of famous guests lining the wall including Charlie Chaplin, Einstein & a 19th century US president Grant.
Our taxi to Pudong airport in the morning (with no traffic) took the best part of 1 hour and cost 192 RMB. [Hongqiao airport into which we arrived in Shanghai is much closer than Pudong airport].
Only word of warning is that guests in rooms near the lift will hear the creakings of the lift. We stayed in room 618 and could hear the lift mechanism anytime someone used the lift.
