“Perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We stay 10 days the staff were incredibly nice , rooms clean and they help us on everything . Jacky the concierge is an angel he help , took care and make sure nothing wrong will happen to us . He introduces Linda a pretty , adorable tour Guide . If you come to Shanghai take that girl a perfect instrument on a city that doesn't speak any other that Chinese

It's very handy to go to the Bund and Nan jing Rd and underground station. It is amazing that the street is quiet when the Bund is just out there. The hotel interior decoration is very classy. The room is not big, aircon is quite strong. The only thing I found inconvenient is there is no window in the room.

Room Tip: Ask the reception if they have a room with window.

For 3 beds we paid $50 USD per night. Only a 1 minute walk to the Bund. Nanjing Rd. is only 5 minutes walk. Close to subways in case you want to visit Old Shanghai.

Room is immaculately clean and has a modern chic design. The lobby looks very ritzy and staff all speak great english. This hotel made Shanghai a perfect visit.

Room Tip: For tasty street food walk exit the hotel and walk left down the street towards Family Mart.

This hotel is my regular when I visit Shanghai. It has a good location - near to the bund, Nanjing road, near to subway station (Line 2), local eateries nearby.
Made two visits this year ...the first one was pretty bad. It was a first floor room. There was no shower curtain, shower cream was diluted, internet didn't work, no fridge, torn towel, stained bedsheets (wonder if the bedsheet was cleaned as it was creased up). I was about to give up on this hotel if my next visit saw similar standard.
The next visit was much better. Was in a 5th floor room. Everything worked (although internet was slow) and intact. So, I will continue to use this hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid the first floor rooms.

I stayed here for 5 nights in October and had a fantastic time...The hotel is quite old with a very nice art deco decor. My room was on the ground floor and did not have a window, but was huge clean and comfy. The beds are hard, but all beds are hard in China. You are literally a 2 minute walk to the Bund and a 5 minute walk to Nanjing road. The cafe in the lobby is great...Really good sandwiches, pizza and coffee. The girl that worked the cafe was a gem!! It was her Birthday one night and she was giving everyone cake. If you want a clean affordable place that is close to all that Shanghai has to offer this place is for you! I would stay here again.

I had booked this hotel because I had wanted to be close to the bund yet not rob a bank. Looking back I give myself (and ofcourse, the hotel) full marks!!!!

The Manhattan Bund hotel is really within a minute's walk to the most happening area of The Bund as well as Nanjing East street. The subway station is close by and so is the People's square, Nanjing West etc. YuYuan garden is a 15 minute walk away through the bund or 15 Yuan by Taxi. This hotel is also surrounded by hotels like Peace Hotel, Peninsula and Hyatt for those who want an exalted meal or drink experience at their roof top bars!

I had reserved a room without a window but did not rue my decision. The front desk and concierge were very helpful and spoke reasonable English. I used the concierge desk to book a G train ticket and this was done quickly and efficiently. I also had problems with my universal adapter and when I had mentioned this to the Front Desk, I was quickly provided with a replacement.

The room by itself was very good, clean and comfortable. The round bed was okay for me but may be a challenge for tall visitors. Bathroom space and amenities were good too. The hotel offers great value for money and reiterates my belief that economizing is not necessarily compromising.

Although I was alone during this visit to the hotel, I shall happily bring back my family or friends to stay here since the area and the hotel felt secure enough. The location couldn't have been better and this hotel offers a superb Value For Money experience. I recommend this hotel without any hesitation.

The location is the good point of this Hôtel! It is very close to the Bund and Nanjing Road.
The Location/Price value is really good.
Most of the rooms have no window so the room could be a little smelly. When I arrive, I found that the bed sheets has not been changed (I found 2 black hairs on my pillow).
The bed sheets are brown (not white like most of hotels), is it to hide the dirtiness?

In Brief: great location but not sure of the cleanliness....
