Lovely Hotel
It is a classy place
It really is one of the best hotels in Shanghai. The location is great as well although there are a lot of foreigners there considering you are in China. The place even has a pool although it is in another building and indoors. The food and drinks in the rooms are oddly cheap but the restaurant is overpriced. There are many restaurants around the hotel.

Great location, near all cool shop and bar
located at downtown
hotel is pretty old, with antique feeling. but if you scare of spirit, this hotel might scare you off from it's look. But i didn't experience any. It has big room with all required facility. Only lane internet in the room night be trouble for people travel without computer.

Great location, standard service
Great Location, reasonable price, near subway stations and major shopping roads
We spent two nights in the Donghu in the main building and had no problems. The location is the best feature of the hotel, right in the center of the French Concession, close to many nice shops and restaurants. We particularly enjoyed the Mexican place around the corner! The "gym" has only one treadmill, and it is very loud and squeaky. If you can handle a hard mattress, this is a fine place to stay. Be sure to request the main hotel over the "annex", as there is a lot of construction going on over there!

It was an average experience staying at Donghu. Knowing that it was a historical building, my partner & I wished to see more of it so we took a walk within the building after checking in. We were just crossing into the next corridor and we were stopped by a hotel person saying that we were not allow to wander within the hotel vicinity, which was completely weird and got us felt so unwelcome. The room we got was of decent size but the facilities were dated and the toilet was pretty rundown. Thank god we were staying only for a night.

Perfect location
location, heritage style
Perfect location, nice and big room (although the bathroom seem outdated). The restaurant is poor (even for breakfast) but the hotel is surrounded by some of the best restaurants in Shanghai...
