I have choosen this hotel for the practical location in the bund, but I was nicely suprise by the view on Pudong. The hotel is not quite modern but ok for the price. Breakfast is not very good and staff lake english skills. But overall opinion is positif.

This hotel is in a great position just off of the river Bund near the garden bridge. Checking in was good. Good English spoken. The room was a fair size facing away from the bund. The hand-wash has a sticker on it saying NOT GIFT. This is classed as a 5 star hotel so they shouldn't expect people to steal... More

The breakfast was nice and had variety. We stayed two nights at the hotel and the part that we appreciated the less was the fact that we needed to walk between 15 to 20minutes to nanjing rd station with lots of luggage. The staff could speak english...which was good!

Stayed for 3 nights during my visit. The room is decent and clean. Hotel offer free wifi and thats a plus point for me. Only thing that need to be improved is the breakfast. Opt out of the breakfast for a better room price.

We booked this hotel after our arrival in Shanghai. It was comfortable and the view (when booked rivier view room of course) gives you a nice impression of Shanghai. To be honest this was the reason for us to book this hotel. A good start of our visit to Shanghai. It is a kind of luxurous hotel with no special... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night on 17 Oct. The room was hot and stuffy. I called the front desk and management several times and was told differing stories. The front desk told me that they don't switch on the air-conditioning in autumn when the temperature reaches 26deg C. The temperature in my room was 30 deg C!... More

The view, especially at night time, of the bund South China harbour is the most spectacular skyline I have ever seen. I am a fan of and regular visitor to Manhatten, but somehow the bund seems bigger but also more intimate. This partly because the waterway is narrower than the Hudson but the streets are wide. Huge effort has gone... More

Stayed here in April 2015 at the end of a group tour and for a few days after. It was fine. The location is great and the views are fabulous, particularly from the top floor where the restaurant is located. My fellow group members had some reservations. I found it be like many hotels in China. You do have to... More

I had already stayed at this hotel about 4-5 years ago, and I really loved it for the view it offered (see my older review), so I decided to come back here. However, I have been really disappointed. The hotel changed management, and (new?) staff was quite unpleasant. The overall room conditions, already not “great” at the time, were appreciably... More

Staying in Hongkou

Neighbourhood Profile
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
