"Short business trip to Shanghai with some history sprinkled in."
The Yangtze Boutique Hotel in Shanghai is located in walking distance to some of the main attractions in Shanghai, e.g. the Shanghai Museum, the Bund and the Huai Hai Road shopping district. The building itself dates back to the Art Deco era of Shanghai and was nicely renovated and converted into a boutique hotel. A very good choice if you like a bit of the "Old Shanghai" atmosphere. If your meetings are in the Puxi area and you like to visit the excellent Shanghai Museum at the same time this is a great location.
"Rightly Located , Nice stay!!!"
I stayed there for 4 nights and it was very conveniently located. very close to people square and the walking street which is the centre of attraction in shanghai. about a Km from The Bund. luxury bed linen and Big bathroom with large Bath Tub was an added feature. I dont know why my deal with Booking.com does not included Morning BF.
"Upgraded to presidential suite. Seriously."
So we stayed one night at the Presidential Suite which we didn't book for. Ours was supposed to be the classic room reserved with a credit card guarantee but perhaps because we checked in so late at 11pm, all other rooms were fully booked (and they probably thought we weren't checking in). As a last resort (or either to impress us), we were given the presidential suite which came with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 toilet, living room, pantry, small meeting room, dining area. At first we were excited, after all who gets to stay in the presidential suite but the VVIP with lots of cash to spare' But after my busy photo taking, I realised how alone I felt in this huge suite and with the old shanghai tune playing on repeat and the flickering light in my bedroom, I began to feel a little creeped out. This was after all a historic hotel. I know my imagination can be quite dramatic but I could not help feeling so alone in a huge suite and had trouble sleeping too - no thanks to my bedroom's air conditioning that was not working and I was stuffy and hot in my bed throughout the night. The hotel looks beautiful in an old Art Deco way and the branding style of Langham still lingering in all its stationery yet now the hotel no longer run by Langham but run locally. SERVICE Service staff English was very basic and our check in was anything but smooth. It took a long time and it was very slow and my friend had a hard time with her credit card not being recognized by the hotel (a first despite her many hotel stays in China). And the reception staff manning the night shift was not friendly at all. ROOM The room itself was hard to comment since our rooms were extra large. But one disappointment for a presidential suite was that there was only 1 drinks making facility in this entire suite and it was in the master bedroom. There was also only 1 mini bar and fridge and all in the master bedroom. The master bedroom had a jacuzzi tub and all the things you'd expect in a VVip room. My bedroom came with a walk in wardrobe which I shut due to how freaked out I felt already. My bathroom came with a shower stall, a bathtub, large 2-sink vanity top and toilet stall complete with Molton brown toiletries. My bedroom has no proper place to put my luggage which was a big minus. I had to place it on my study desk which was a bit narrow. This is not a good thing and far from expectations of a presidential suite. The least expected should be a solid luggage cabinet so you can rest your large luggage securely on top. BREAKFAST Breakfast was decent - a buffet spread of Chinese and western cuisine. Unfortunately I do not have much impression on the breakfast. LOCATION Location was probably the best thing for this hotel. Within minutes to People's square and the metro station as well as Raffles City mall. I might have a better experience if I stayed in their normal rooms. I think the Presidential Suite was a little much for us two individuals who Iocked ourselves up in our own rooms primarily and more importantly I had poor sleep because the aircon was not working in my room. Too big a room for 2 persons.
Wonderful small and luxurious hotel perfectly situated. Special mention must be made of Toby, the most helpful, kind and knowledgeable concierge. My only gripe would be that we needed to have 2 extra hours in our room before our taxi arrived to take us to the airport and they wanted to charge us for half a day. Would be nice if there were at least shower facilities for late check outs. I'm hopeful that next year when we return that we'll have this facility offered to us.
"Highly recommended "
My sister and I stayed there for 6 days and it was absolutely perfect! Great location, right across the street from the big "people square" metro station that takes you anywhere you wish. Our room was decorated at a high standard, very clean and spacious (though considered to be on the cheaper end). They have a "western" breakfast that has a decent variety and can get you through the day. Nice people, service was good.
