    Good location, lousy food”
    The hotel is walking distance to The Bund and Yu Garden. The nearest train station is the Yu Garden station. Take line 10 and then go down to the Yu Garden station, exit 2. There are shops at the Yu Garden that sell local stuff for gifts for friends back home. And they are only 5RMB, scarves for 10RMB. You should know how to haggle otherwise they will rip you off. There are a lot of restaurants near the hotel, most of them serve noodles. Some malls are walking distance also. Careful when you take the taxi. Especially the ones that are stationed near the hotel. We rode the taxi with plate number DX2705, white VW. We paid around 75RMB from the hotel to station 2, West Nanjing station (line 2, train going to the airport). The driver was rude and arrogant. If you are arriving at night (last train from Pudong airport to the city if I remember it right is 9:30 p.m.), you could book a shuttle bus through klook.com We paid around $17 for two persons.

    Staff could be friendlier”
    The hotel was ok, in a good area, close to The Bund. When I went breakfast in the morning I was the first person and none of the staff even said hello, no one seems happy who works there. The hotel is very dark also and maybe this is to hide the cracks in walls etc. Breakfast is ok for 3 star hotel.

    Acceptable”
    If you are looking for a cheap empty hotel just for a stay at The Bund Shanghai, go for it. It doesn't seems to value your money especially the dirty toilet, no noise insulation in rooms that you can hear the TV on the next door. Floors are not clean that I have to talk to the housekeeper otherwise they will just sit there and spend their time on the mobile phone. Staff are not helpful, it feels like we are ignored when questions are asked. We asked for a location to a restaurant the receptionist just point us to a direction without telling us in detail how to walk / method of travel to the destination. Awful!

    Out of my expectation ”
    The location is not very convenient and it takes about 15mins to the subway station on feet... I don’t really recommend if you carry a lot of luggages unless 2 standard size bags are fine. Bathroom is poor and when I shower floor drain with standing water “fishing”, constantly having the water reach my feet. But the staff are helpful and kindness.

    Okay Hotel with great location”
    First of all the location is great! The hotel is next to the Bund with it's great view! There are some nice restaurants and bars around (but mostly high priced) and a Taxi stop directly infront. But that was about it. The rooms look nice from the outside but you shouldn't look closer. The bathroom is okay but rustic and needs refurbishment. There is a showercurtain which I always dislike. The rooms face the outside towards inner courtyards (loud airconditioning and neighbors) or to the inside (loud because you hear everyone and everything happening in the rest of the hotel). Two of my colleagues needed to change rooms due to cockroaches and bad smell and had to pay more because there were only bigger rooms available. The receptionists only spoke really poor english and communication was a hassle. the breakfast was super simple and the juice was bad two days in a row. The resturant closes at 6pm so no dinner possible. And the Wifi is a only working sometimes and very poorly.

    Good location. need improvement on cleaning”
    The hotel is in good location next to the bund. Pretty modern design. we checked in early and we found that there is a strong drainage smell. And we informed the staff and they told us that all rooms are full and promised to deal with the situation (it was around 1pm). however, the problem is not solved until we came back to hotel at around 9pm. We were quite upset about it and the staff promised to arrange another room for us. Meanwhile, my parents room found a bunch of dust on the floor. The cleaning definitely need some improvement. The first night was a nightmare for us living in a super smelly room, we can smell it even we close the toilet door(in fact the door can’t close properly) I can see the staffs are trying to help, but there is nothing they can do though. On the next day, they arranged another room for us, which is much better. We appreciated it. Other than that, the hotel is a not bad choice if you go to shanghai but do not expect too much. The breakfast is quite good with basic choices like eggs, potatoes, salad, fried rice, cereal, congee, fried noodles and drinks.

    Serious WiFi issue”
    Can only access the WiFi in the room. Once leaving the room where is not close to the room, the WiFi drops. The hotel public WiFi needs a China mobile number to get the password. How a tourist to use a real ID (by China law, it needs a real name to register a mobile SIM card except data-only card which is without mobile number.) to get a mobile number??

    Excellent location”
    Just a block away from The Bund and Nanjing Road, the best thing about this hotel is the location. The room was spacious enough with a comfortable bed but there was mould in the bathroom and somebody else's hair. The staff try to help but, in my experience, had limited English. The rooms mostly open onto a central space so the potential for noisy nights was significant. Still, the decor is funky and it is modern and appealing to young western tastes. Good for a short stopover.

    Great Location, rooms are tiny”
    Overall great location, you get the best view to the greatest skyline just across the road. When I couldn't sleep at night I'd just walked across the road (3min walk) just to stare at the nice view across Lujiazhui. Yu Garden is just 10min walk away. However, most shops are closed around 6pm and there's not much choice if you're looking for dinner around the hotel. Also, great ambient and environment, room and public areas feel very artistic and inspiring. Downside is, almost all rooms only have windows facing corridors which means no actual window to outside so you don't get any city view. Rooms are so tiny you have no space to walk around. My shower head was broken and water pressure was low throughout my stay. I also witnessed 2 tourists from different countries arriving at midnight, only to be told by front desk they didn't receive their bookings (they mentioned booking through online by I didn't hear which website).. makes me kinda worry if the same would happen to me.
