Great hardware, poor software
I love the elegant building and its antique atmosphere, and 5 minutes walk to bank of Huangpu River (waitan), however, everyone on the reception desk were poker-faced and seemed quite arrogant. Btw, takes about 20 minutes to get the nearest subway station.

In the doldrums ....
Although its historical significance is the main focus and selling point, sadly this "grand old Dame" lacks the character and vibrancy she clearly had in her heyday. Unfortunately she has not been well tended. A make-over with a new "hair-do" to brighten her up and bring her in line with the 21st Century is sorely needed. I had looked forward to staying here and was very disappointed. Beds were very hard and no wee fridge for the mini bar. Also disgruntled to have to pay a deposit of 500 yuan for incidentals which meant I was left with surplus currency upon leaving not only the Hotel but the country. I'll be back to Shanghai but not to the Astor Hotel. Cherie, New Zealand

Astor House Hotel Shanghai disappointing
A big disappointment even at the price. Internet terrible even by China standards. Noisy with neighbours able to be heard clearly. Bathroom dirty with dark moss growing in cracks where bath meets wall. Wallpaper needs renewing. Carpets in hallway needs replacing. Historic hotel that needs work. Low end of three star rating (if that).

Past glory
We enjoyed staying there even though the level of service is not up to the magnificence of the building
