I like simple clean comfortable hotels on a good location. The location is great and so is the building. Nice view in the garden. Very unique. The service is excellent. I forgot my painting in the hotel lobby and the lady at the desk shipped...More

First time I stayed here – some 8 years ago – I thought there was something really wrong before arriving, because the combination of pictures of the building, of the rooms, the location and the price didn’t make sense. But it wasn’t a lie.
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive
restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
