While the location of this hotel is great, the overall upkeep is lacking. Our room needed a good scrub, from the carpet to the sheets. The bed ruffle was covered in "stains" which I didn't even want to think about. When I pointed this out to the management, they just laughed. I asked for my duvee cover to be changed when I saw it was not laundered and it took several asks before it finally got done. A river view may distract you from the uncleanliness of the inside but it was something I could not turn a blind eye to. If you stay here, make sure to bring flip flops and your own pillow cases.

An olde worldly building, gracious interior and charming rooms. It was built by the Russians in what was considered the Russian Quarter.
Restaurant could be better decorated to create an ambience that one could relax in.
Gracious staff, very helpful, attentive and courteous. English spoken.
Reasonable breakfast buffet.
Great Japanese restaurant with a comprehensive menu. Very good presentation.
French restaurant runs in the evening from same restaurant as breakfast. Could have more atmosphere. Food was mediocre.
Executive rooms have access to executive lounge serving breakfast and afternoon tea. It was very good to be able to return after a long day and relax with free tea, coffee and snacks. Two for one drinks at the lounge.
Walk to the Bund, walking tunnell to the other side of the river and tower, Nanjing Road shopping, all restaurants and other shopping centres.
Quite deserted designer boutiques on the Bund.

Room Tip: Ask for nonsmoking.

I had heard from friends that the hotels in Shanghai were not that great and that we should go for at least a 4 star hotel. After researching online for quite some time, I found Broadway Mansions. With good reviews and a convenient location, I decided on this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the hotel. Our room looked out over the Bund( a bend in the river where everything seems to happen, right in the center of the city). If you are going to Shanghai try to stay near the Bund. Everything was in walking distance. There were plenty of coffee shops and restaurants to choose from and the taxis were cheap. A word of advise... make sure you ask the front desk to write down the location you want to go to in Chinese. The taxi drivers don't understand any English.
The hotel itself was an old hotel built in the 1930's but the rooms were well kept and smart.
If ever I go back to Shanghai, I wouldn't hesitate to book in there again.
Another option at a bit of a price is the Hyatt on the Bund. It looked like a smart hotel with great views. Just remember that when you book any of these places to ask for river view.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view. The rooms facing the back have a terrible view. It might cost more, but it's worth it.

I stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights during a business trip in April.

The hotel is one of the oldest buildings in the district (ca. 1934, if I remember correctly) and externally does not seem so attractive, but the inside is really impressive: it is very elegant and beautifully furnished.

Rooms are very spacious and well furnished: beds are gigantic (1.8 metres in width for the "queen size"!) and very comfortable, and sound-proofing is exceptional; also, from the outside usually comes much light from the city's buildings in the evening, but the curtains are perfectly designed not to let in any light when you want to go to bed.

I was on one of the highest floors, in the executive club, and view was really impressive: on my left I could see Pudong's shining skyscrapers and the river, and it was impressive.

Bathrooms are big, new and with every amenity provided. The walk-in shower was a delight. Also, I particularly appreciated the buttons on the wall behind the bed that could let you, for example, immediately call the housekeeping, or shut every light of the room down for the night, or call the room service.

Breakfast quality in line with international standards, though I would have preferred some more choice.

Only con: Wi-fi is quite "stupid" to operate - I was in room with a colleague and you cannot share the connection, and when you disconnect, many times the system tells you that "the account is already online" - it can really become frustratring and makes you waste time when you have to work.

We stayed at the Broadway Mansions Hotel in May 2011 on a holiday to shanghai. The rooms are massive and the hotel excellently placed with amazing views of the bund, there are not great public transport links as it is a bit of a walk to the nearest metro station but after an unfortunate rip off when we got the taxi from the maglev to our hotel we soon discovered that taxis were v.cheep and the best way to get around.

unfortunatly the air conditioning doesn't work very well and shanghai gets rather hot and as the hotel is on a busy crossroads it is quite noisy at night when the windows are open, still for the price I could not fault this hotel and its grand aura and would stay again.
