of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
Agree with other comments regarding convenient location. Very spacious room and large bathroom. Large comfortable bed. Decent breakfast. A bit chilly in the Lobby but as the front door is constantly opened, couldn't expect anything else. Complimentary tea and biscuits in the Lobby. Wifi a bit sporadic but the same can be said for the rest of China. The Art Deco style attracted me to this place when searching for hotels and I wasn't disappointed.
Love this little hotel as compared to size of Shanghai standards, excellent location, approx two blocks from walking street. This is a very nostalgic hotel and really gives you a feel of how it would have been in Shanghai in the 1930's, comfortable beds and linens and a very nice deco decor, if in Shanghai this will definitely be my hotel choice!
"Gem of a place and so was the staff"
We stayed 3 nights at this hotel and we were extremely pleased. The balcony rooms were spacious but be aware that they are not all the same. The first room we got was somewhat dark as the windows faced into a walled area. We managed to change rooms and the Front Desk staff was very accommodating in making us happy. The room we eventually got was bright with a balcony opening out towards the street. The bathroom was very large with separate toilet, large shower, deep tub with its own TV and the room itself was a good size. Comfortable beds and good housekeeping. The Concierge and bell staff are friendly and so very helpful. They often walked us to restaurant locations and even to the hop on/off tourist bus location. All their recommendations were excellent from fine dining restaurant to the local noodle shop. Location is very convenient and safe. It is right near to the police station and local transit. We ended up taking taxis as they are so cheap but be careful that you don't get caught at night without transportation. Taxis are extremely hard to flag down even if they have their green "available" light on. The trick is to find a taxi that is discharging passengers and you have to hop in right behind them. It took a good 30 minutes one evening to get a taxi.
"Loverly Boutique Hotel With Excellent Location"
We stayed for 5 nights; although first & second night we have a room without city view but its still very comfortable. The rooms are very spacious, especially the bathroom which have a separate shower room, toilet and a very deep bath. Location of the hotel is super, just few meters from the Nanjing road, People's Park, Ruffles shopping mall and metro.
"Lovely hotel in great location"
If you don't like big chain hotels, this gem is well located, has style, provides excellent service and the room we had was one of the best we've experienced. Attention has been given to the last detail in terms of providing quality inclusions from towels, to beds and just about everything a traveller needs. All top quality and nothing tacky. The breakfast (which was included in our deal) was enjoyed in the cosy, well appointed restaurant and offered something for every culinary taste. Could have found something cheaper but what the Yangtse offers was well worth paying a little more. Hard to criticise anything with this hotel but if I was pushed, I would say the bedside lighting in the room could be improved. Reading was a bit of a challenge.
