As always, I chose my hotel --- for the last two days of our Cruise Holiday from Sydney to Beijing, with a few days in Beijing and finally Shanghai before we flew home - from Tripadvisor reviews. We are Australian oldies, who have travelled all our lives, and we just love old hotels. We viewed the Seagull from the Bund when we visited Shanghai for a day of our cruise - and just knew we had picked well. We booked a front room with a window - Tripadvisor advice. I had done all our booking online, with a company who really made the whole land trip as easy as possible and suited to our needs. Arriving at the Seagull late in the afternoon we were so impressed with the beautiful foyer, lovely staircase, beautiful flower arrangements and went straight to our room. The lights on the Bund were just coming on and the whole river scene was there for us. Loved the decor of the room, loved the restaurant also overlooking the river. We did find the staff a little cool except for one bellboy! Waiting outside the lift with our bags on the morning of departure this lad was a delight to talk to -- didn't mind the wait for the lift. Little touches, like the hand-towels in the bathroom spelling out the name of the hotel, which was also in the sand at the front lifts -- for cigarettes I imagine -- well, we stay at modern hotels often, but this one was so special. Thank you, Seagull, for an experience we thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated on our last night in China.
