    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 ...

    This historic hotel is my absolute favourite of all Shanghai's hotel. It's in one of the most remarkable buildings on The Bund, and has managed to preserve the feel of old Shanghai in it's interior decor. Rooms are luxurious with all trimmings, and the atmosphere of the hallways and public rooms takes you back to Shanghai of the 1920s. The ...

    Fantastic hotel in a great setting in one of the older buildings on The Bund. Located near the south end of The Bund the immediate surroundings are less chaotic than at the hotels nearer Nanjing Road. The rooms are very well appointed and a bit posh, while hotel service, breakfast and atmosphere are all impeccable. Note the little signs everywhere ...

    I arrived exhausted to Shanghai and was very happy when I saw the Jin Jiang Hotel. The lobby is very welcoming with a grand piano the center piece of a comfortable seating area. I was quickly checked in and directed to my room. It was lovely! A queen size bed with soft linens, comforter, and wonderfully soft pillows. The bathroom ...

    Behind a set of iron gates, on a quiet former French Concession corner, lies the Mansion Hotel. Walking through the front door feels like you’re entering someone’s house from the 1930’s. The décor and photos are from that special period in Shanghai’s history. The mansion was originally built as a hangout for the Shanghainese mafia, and entertained them through the ...

    The first thing that stuck me about the Ritz-Carlton were the views, on a clear sunny day Shanghai is absolutely spectacular and I was lucky enough to stay at the Ritz on one of those days. The main lobby is on the 53rd floor and the floor to ceiling windows made for a breathtaking view of most of the city. ...

    This is an amazing property. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in the city. This is one of the best Peninsulas on the planet. I fell in love with the Peninsula Shanghai from the moment I entered. The location on the Bund is perfect and the property does a great job of balancing the Art Deco traditions of the city ...

    In its first life The Waterhouse was a factory and it has stayed true to its history in its reincarnation as a hotel. There are areas of patchy brickwork, exposed beams and graffiti throughout the venue that encourage guests to think and discover the space. The first floor is home to the bar and restaurant, Table 1. An entire wall ...

    This is a lovely hotel with a lot of history and a great location -- right on the Bund. I prefer the Peninsula but this spot is the real deal in terms of the history. Worth stopping in for a drink at The Jazz Bar even if you don't stay here.

    Excellent! - 94% of guests recommend

    When the Grand Hyatt Shanghai was first opened, it was the highest hotel in the world as the building it is located, the JingMao Building, was the tallest building in the world. Very soon this title has been taken by others. The fact that this a first class hotel with a world class view to match does not change. As ...

    While its sister hotel, the Grand Hyatt is grand and traditional, Park Hyatt Shanghai is refreshing, chic, and modern. Although the hotel occupies higher floors of the World Finance Center, the Park Hyatt never did get to claim the highest hotel title at the time when it opened. Nevertheless, it is still one of the highest in the world, offering ...

    The Hyatt on the Bund is luxurious and comfortable without being over-the-top ostentatious—the VUE bar being the notable exception, with its hot tub and spectacular views of the Shanghai skyline. The expansive front lobby is entirely lit by natural light that floods in from floor to ceiling windows. The feeling of earthy tranquility extends to the juice bar and especially ...

    The distinctive architecture of the JW Marriott may be the feature for which the hotel is best known, but the true highlights are waiting inside. Stepping off the elevator on the 38th floor lobby, visitors are greeted by a distinct scent that I wouldn’t be entirely averse to wearing as a perfume. The high ceilings, plush furniture and impressive staircase ...

    Just a block or two away from People's Square and a 20 minute walk from the bund this beautifully restored building is a lovely choice for a long weekend in the city. The heavily Art Deco themed hotel was reminiscent of what Shanghai might have been like in it's heyday in the 20's and 30's. Lots of rich reds and ...

    The hotel, including the rooms, service and restaurants, are all good and what you would expect from a hotel of this standart. I am not very keen on the address, right on Yan'an Road by Jiangsu Road, one of the worst places in the whole city, traffic-wise, in morning- and evening rush hour. On the positive side it is right ...

    This luxury hotel has a great location, right across from Xintiandi and very near shopping areas like Huaihai Road. The rooms are very modern, with ample room, good bed and all the other things you expect from a five star hotel. Breakfast is also very good with a nice selection. My one gripe with this hotel is that it is ...

    A very nice hotel inside a courtyard on central Jiaozhou Road, within walking distance of Jing'an Temple and line 2 and 7 on the metro. The rooms are comfortable, service is good and the little extra things make this a very good hotel in central Shanghai (i.e. the backwall of the reception which is made from old suitcases). The only ...

    Jing’an is a great neighborhood to stay in when you’re in Shanghai. It’s a comfortable mix of residential and commercial, and not as busy as near the Bund where you feel like you’re lost among the city’s 26million inhabitants. The Four Seasons is located South East Jing’an, and not far from People’s Square. It’s your typical business hotel. There aren’t ...
