"Hotel is great, location okay"
Located on the Bund, the view from the rooms is great. Although the windows did not seal 100% tight, so some street noise permeated the room. Had to wear earplugs to sleep. The decor of the rooms is a mix of Asian and Modern, reflecting the Taiwan heritage of this hotel chain. The common areas are well designed with lots of cosy areas to relax in, a welcome departure from typical hotel common and dining areas that are wide open and expansive, but lack design or homeiness. The location is a bit away from the main attractions, so you need to take a taxi to get to JingAn, Nanjing Lu, Xintindi districts. One attraction that is within walking distance is Nanjing Lu, but that's a 16-20 min walk. Some really nice, high end restaurants and bars on the Bund within a 5-8 min walk of the hotel.
"Luxurious, with a great view of the Bund"
This hotel, sitting right off the famous "Bund" in Shanghai looks unassuming from the outside, but is pure luxury on the inside. Our room was very spacious, with separate sitting area that looks like a little living room. The bathroom offered a gorgeous view of the Bund waterfront. A heavy translucent sliding door offers privacy in the bathroom while still letting in natural light for the rest of the room. We were surprised to find this nice touch: a heated toilet seat! This was a luxury I've never experienced before... The downtown location makes it easy to walk anywhere. You can spend most of your time just walking along the famous Bund waterfront, which is right across the street from the hotel. Unfortunately for us, the weather was rainy during our stay. The view was still nice though. This hotel offers some really nice touches, like the 24 hour lounge, where you can relax with a cup of tea or coffee, and help yourself to biscuits and fruit. We stopped by there often, especially after a long day to unwind and relax. They also offer an excellent hot breakfast buffet, with a variety of Asian and Western dishes. In summary, this hotel is not inexpensive, but is a must-stay if you are visiting Shanghai for the first time.
"Understated elegance on the Bund"
Located at the corner of Jining Lu and the Bund, this boutique hotel is a block from the Waldorf. Discreet entrance, rooms are modern design with comfort for seasoned travellers. Buffet breakfast is served every morning at the breakfast parlour, relaxed with style.
"Great location !!"
We got to the hotel a bit early and have to wait til 2 pm. After 2 pm, a bit disappointed, one of the room (we booked 2 Bund Studio rooms, 2 nights and requested high floors) still haven't ready yet. Can't wait anymore, we took 1101 and 1701. The room are okay, but not so child's friendly because too many reachable things by my boy (16 months old), such as photo frame, coffee cupboard, etc. He found the espresso machine, which is great, not many found in the hotel rooms. View from hotel rooms are okay, only 1 window (a bit too small) from our room. Take a walk outside the hotel, the view are awesome and just cross the street, its the famous Waitan (The Bund) in Shanghai. Also ferry terminal and ticket counter just across the hotel. Cost 2 RMB only to get on the ferry across the river to "New" Shanghai where you can find malls and high rise building. Back on hotel sides, you can find small shops and many typical chinese food resto. We tried the la-mien noodle, and the taste are just okay. Breakfast are many varieties, good tastes, but exactly same food for both days. Also, there is lounge open for most of the days, offers cookies and coffee in the lobby floor. Great hospitality from the staffs, many are well English spoken. Keep up the good job guys, thank you.
"Good location with fantastic views "
Hotel is in a good location. It was right opposite the bund with great views :) About 20 min walk to Nanjing Road. Good restaurants like Shanghai Grandmother Restaurant and Lost Heaven on the Bund nearby. Attention to details in the suite 1808 was great - The suite has 4 window panels with fantastic views of the river, the living room has a table area facing the view and a sitting area with a TV which allows u to play some of the latest movies, which was great for chilling out at night. The bedroom has a sitting area facing the view, a very comfortable king size bed, where u can see the views from. But if you wish to watch TV on the bed, you just need to press a button and the TV would come up from a small cupboard in front of the bed. Excellent design such that your views would not be blocked from the bed by a TV console area. Music has a few channels which was quite relaxing, the lights and curtains were controlled by automation. The bathroom has a deep bath tub facing yet another TV. Was honestly impressed with the suite. Service was also great, we met Maria the PR manager on our first night and she kindly informed us of the free alcoholic drink at 530pm every night and kept encouraging us to have a drink. There was also free cookies, cakes , drinks and fruits at the 3rd floor lounge area daily. Breakfast included was also good, had a good variety like porridge, noodles, eggs station, pastries, fruits etc. Quality was good too :) Overall a very impressive boutique hotel with loads of attention to details :) Would definitely recommend to friends and would be happy to stay here again :)
