    The mid-19th century grand architecture and perfect location made this place a welcome respite in busy Shanghai, but add in a great breakfast cafe, a convivial wifi lounge and a hair salon with inexpensive massages, and it gets bumped up to five stars. You know how you get bored of a hotel after a few days? I stayed here for a week and a half leading around a group of future travel writers, and we never got bored.

    The Astor House is definitely a stay in history. Tall ceiling hallways and rooms, a creak in the floor boards, a walk over the bridge from the Bund. I enjoyed a pleasant stay as I fancy Shanghai with a measure of nostalgia and history. If you're into a peek into the past, I'd stay here for a night.

    This hotel doesn't win a star above my three because it doesn't have much to walk to as far as food is concerned. You'll be taxi dependent. It has its novelty but there are more conveniently located places to stay in Shanghai.

    Astor House, also knows as the Pujiang Hotel, enjoys a great location just off The Bund across Waibaidu Bridge, making it a two minute walk to reach The Bund. The hotel belongs to the group of hotels that had their hayday in the swingin' 1920s. Everywhere inside the hotel you'll see pictures of the hotel and surroundings back then.
    The rooms are fine, but try to stay clear of the back wing. Breakfast is adequate in a beautiful ball room. For budget travellers who want to stay near The Bund this is a great option.

Description

Also known as the Pujiang Hotel and Richard's Hotel, the stunning colonial hotel was built in the 1840s and has many touches from that era. These days, a bar, internet cafe and restaurant have modernized the architectural gem, but rooms remain historically charming.
