Great Location, Room, Breakfast -- Relaxation”
We were thoroughly delighted to have selected SSAW Shanghai for our 5 night stay in Shanghai. It was a relaxing oasis in a very crazy and busy city, and such a good value. The room was very inviting with 4 poster bed and white down comforter, with sliding doors to a very decent sized bath, compete with spa shower and two sinks. It reminded me of the room we had at the W Hotel in San Francisco -- not overdone, just very nice. The bath was clean and nice and the room as well. The next morning we could not have been happier sitting out on the rooftop table area sipping our coffee from the European coffeemaker, with birds in cages and a sumptuous buffet. The buffet had everything you'd expect from a nice US buffet -- egg chef, cereal, fruit, and it also had an incredible Chinese breakfast of salads, hot dishes, exotic fruits, etc. We were so happy with it we brought our friends to eat with us the next day. I would definitely suggest making sure you select a room that includes the breakfast. The staff was very helpful -- getting us cabs; writing in Chinese characters to give a taxi driver; orienting us on a map, helping us find a restaurant and shopping. The location is perfect -- easy walk to the Bund, easy walk to Yuan Gardens, easy walk to Peoples Park. Much more central than the more expensive hotels on the Bund. There was some outside noise since it's a city street but it wasn't a problem. We loved it and would highly recommend SSAW Shanghai.
Perfect for a busy tour schedule”
We stayed at SSAW Boutique Hotel Shanghai Bund for 4 days 3 nights in the family room. It was spacious and comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need! The Thai decoration theme was also pleasant, like staying in a resort in the mid of a bustling city. The breakfast and supper spread was not excellent but satisfactory. However, the overall facility wasn't great (i.e. small lobby area; spa area and launderette is the same floor as residence room hence lack of privacy) but we didn't mind because we only used the hotel for sleep and rest. Excellent service by all the hotel staff, always friendly and willing to help! The hotel is also 400m away from Yu Yuan Garden Station so travelling was a breeze. It is also 10 mins away from tourist hotspots like The Bund and Yu Yuan Garden. Would definitely stay here again!
Excellent location, clean and spacious room with friendly staff”
I booked a SSAW Room at Narada Boutique Hotel Shanghai Yu Garden (from the location provided by Agoda, it should be their Yu Garden branch and not Bund) but however, I made a mistake in the check in date so I was actually there a day earlier than my booking. However, the staff was extremely kind and friendly to help me look for an alternative room at their other branch as all the rooms at Yu Garden were fully booked for that night. She managed to arrange a room that matched my Agoda booking room type at actual Narada Boutique Hotel Shanghai Bund. The room was really big and spacious. The hotel is new so everything looks clean and nice too. I had a pleasant stay with Narada Boutique Hotel.
First Trip To China!”
A service-oriented hotel!! It is my children’s first trip to China. We choose free and easy travel, using the Shanghai metro to move around the city. Hotel staff, including the housekeeping aunty are friendly, hospitable and helpful. They were able to give us useful tips and map when we approached them. A special thanks to Ms Pereira and the hotel reception team who responded quickly to my email prior to my arrival to receive and safekeep my HSR tickets till we arrived. We were able to maximise our time in Shanghai because of SSAW and her dedicated team. Besides these, the hotel is well located within the city centre, with Yuyuan and the Bund nearby. The walk to the nearest station, Yuyuan is only less than 2 minutes. The 2 rooms we booked were spacious and tastefully decorated. If the room lighting could be brighter, it would be perfect. Breakfast was very good with a wide selection of western and oriental food. They even thoughtfully provide supper for hotel guests! SSAW Boutique has
Good that we chose SSAW Boutique Hotel Shanghai Bund. Very centralized location with many eateries around. 3 bistro/pubs with great offers and a wholesale building within walking . First time experiencing hotel serving free supper and free items in room fridge. The toiletries are fabulous (especially the am and pm bath shampoo, not to mention on the hair shampoo). Lobby also serves free hot and cold beverages. We loved the coffee maker machine in the room. Oh forget to mention the free laundry area with free detergent. Looking to book this hotel again for future visits.
We were impressed with SSAW Boutique Hotel. It was reasonably price and the location was great to get to the subway; walk to People's Park where the Shanghai Museum and walk to the Bund, Yu Garden, Old Shanghai etc. Rooms are not large but the size was sufficient for us. Appreciated that they had coffee and hot water maker and a light snack and water/soda free in the room. They also had the late night snack for free at 10pm - 11:30pm. Also, appreciated that the Operations Manager had information and directions to get to some of the main places via WeChat.
Excellent for the price in Shanghai.”
Stayed here for 3 nights. We chose the SSAW room. It was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was big. The hotel location is good. Close to the metro station. 5 mins from Yuyuan Gardens. 15 mins from Bund, Nanjing Road and Peoples square. The restaurant is located on the 4th Floor and has an open area which has a nice decent view around, including partly the Bund. The minibar is free and you can choose coke, water, sprite and most handy, a sports drink which was very handy. Tea and coffee is served in the lobby and the 4th floor reception and is free. They also serve free snacks at 10 pm which is ok. The rice and noodles were decent. Didn't care to eat again the next evening. Having said that, there are couple of good pubs just outside the hotel. They have happy hours from 7 -10 pm and its much needed after long day tours in Shanghai. Breakfast is very good. Overall, very happy to have chosen the hotel and would definitely stay there again.
Travelled to Shanghai with my mum and stayed in SSAW for this trip. Really gotta say that their service is really good! Room is very spacious, free supper and mini bar, very near to attractions like People's Square, The Bund and Yu Garden Old Street. And... it's just approx 5 mins walk from the metro station to the hotel. The staffs and the house keeper are very nice and friendly. The staffs provided us with the directions to get to the various town around Shanghai and the house keeper will initiate conversion whenever they saw us at the corridor. Overall a very good experience! I will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends if they are going to Shanghai in future. Of course, I'll definitely go back to this hotel for my future trip.
I was very happy of staying there”
As I travelled back to SH for my wedding, so I just picked up this hotel as it's centrally located, just next to huai hai road (where there are tons of restaurants and shopping malls) Basically you can take taxi from hotel to most of the attractions with cheap price. (Xin Tian Di, World Financial Tower, Peoples Square are all very nearby the hotel). The lobby isnt big but it has lovely design, the staff were friendly. There was an English speaking receptionist during the day time. The hotel room is quite clean, they renovated just about 2 years ago, so furnitures in room look quite new. During our first couple days' stay in Shanghai, we booked Deluxe king size, i was amazed by the standard. Couple days later I had to come back to SSAW, as the damn so called 5 star hotel room which i booked for my wedding, turned out to be a nightmere... and I tried Suite, it was awesome! But frankly speaking, i think it's too big for just a couple. Deluxe king size is def good enough. Hotel offers free wifi in room if i dont remember wrong. Anyway if i ever go back to SH, I will def stay at SSAW again, the price is very good for the standard. This quality in Europe can easily cost 3 to 4 times more.
great location and value but dusty&same breakfast”
i got upgraded to the suite on my first day due to the lack of rooms. it was very nice, the deco was very south east asian. the bathroom is very spacey, lighting was great, the view from the bath tub was great too, over looking the city. there's complimentary cookies and drinks in the fridge, which is very thoughtful. but one thing though, the coffee cups and mugs were quite dusty. on my second day onwards i got the ssaw room, which was equally decent as well, just without the living room and double flat screen. the rooms are not really soundproof though, i could hear people talking, opening their doors and walking around outside. breakfast is good, wide variety but it's the same thing everyday, they just alternate the noodles with fried rice. btw, they had ipod/iphone docks in the rooms, very awesome and thoughtful!! location was amazing considering the price they offer for such a great room. it's literally just a one-minute walk from the subway exit 4 of line 10 yuyuan station. but since it's at the entrance/exit of a tunnel connecting to pudong, there's no restaurants or convenience store nearby. might have to take a little walk to find one. the bund and many other attractions are nearby. shanghai is a great place, you can just take a turn anywhere on any street and explore along the roads. great place to stay and get lost. highly recommend this hotel.
BEST HOTEL IN SHANGHAI”
This hotel is unlike any other boutique hotels. Although this is a boutique hotel but the service is 5 star. We were very lucky to meet Niels Taal (Operation Manager). Thanks to someone like him that contributed for the better change in service industry in Shanghai. For other travellers planning to stay here, please download WeChat App and read all the information provided by Niels. Make sure that you also read the important information printed on your hotel key card envelope. I must give credit to Daniel and Johnson too from front office department. They are very helpful. About the room, THE ACTUAL ROOM LOOKS BETTER THAN THE PHOTOS. LOCATION is EXCELLENT, near subway station, Yuyuan, and The Bund. The hotel provide evening snacks for guests, it's simple snacks, but it's the thought that counts. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel. Once again, thank you very much Niels and everyone working in this hotel. We really enjoyed our stay here, and we will be back. Keep it up. Daniel & Lynne

Breakfast is good, wide variety but it's the same thing everyday, they just alternate the noodles with fried rice. Location was amazing considering the price they offer for such a great room. It's literally just a one-minute walk from the subway exit 4 of Line 10 Yuyuan station. But since it's at the entrance/exit of a tunnel connecting to Pudong, there's no restaurants or convenience store nearby. Might have to take a little walk to find one. The Bund and many other attractions are nearby. Shanghai is a great place, you can just take a turn anywhere on any street and explore along the roads. Great place to stay and get lost. Highly recommend this hotel.
Great location, 100 m from Yu Yuan Garden Metro station, walking distance from People's square and from the Bund. Staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are comfortable and clean. The highlight for me was to enjoy their breakfast buffet sitting outside on the 4th floor roof terrasse. If I should ever go back to Shanghai, I'll definitely try to stay at the SSAW Shanghai Bund again.
Great Service, Wonderful Room and Good Location!”
This is definitely one of the best hotels that I have stayed in. Spent a few weeks going through the reviews of Shanghai hotels in Agoda before settling for a suite in SSAW Hotel Shanghai, and it was well worth the effort. Hotel suite was big, cosy, comfortable with great views, especially from the inviting bathtub. In short, this is a hotel with exceptional value for the guests in mind. What really made this a great hotel is its people. We were faced with a malfunctioning lift system on our day of departure. Our Level 11 room attendant immediately contacted the technician for assistance. As the technician was not able to rectify the problem immediately, the room attendant suggested an alternative service lift for our use. That's when we met with Niels and Linda. They were on their way to every level to 'rescue' their guests. Even though the whole episode probably took up 15 to 30 minutes of our time, it was really our privilege to witness the behind-the-scene work of these wonderful hotel staff. So do you think I will still stay in this hotel again? Definitely and it will be my only choice unless the hotel runs out of rooms! Our sincere thanks to all hotel staff for your excellent services and do continue to maintain it. Plus take good care of yourselves and your guests during this period when the H7N9 disease is lurking in Shanghai.
Luxurious design room & bathroom, close to MRT”
I booked a SSAW City View room type. The room was beyond my expectation (judging from the room rates). To me the room was more like a Royal's Bedroom where King is sleeping. The bathroom was also big with bathtub and separated shower room and toilet/WC. The provide mini bar for FREE, yes FREE. Wi-Fi in the room was also fast and FREE. The hotel is located just 300 foot steps (approx.150 meter) away from YuYuan Station (the subway station) and 200 meters away from the famous YuYuan Garden. If you want, you can slowly walk to the Bund area to enjoy the river Huang Pu and also to see the famous Shanghai Pearl Tower. Walking to the Bund area only takes about 20 mins with slow pace.
Excellent Location of Narada Boutique Hotel ”
We stayed at Narada Boutique Shanghai Bund for 2 nights. The location of the hotel is excellent. It is about 5 minutes walk from the YuYuan Garden of Line 10 Exit 4 and about 10 minutes walk to YuYuan. It is about 30 minutes walk to the NanJing East Pedestrian Walk Shopping area. All the main Shanghai attractions are within walking distance. If you prefer you may take the metro to the attraction from the YuYuan Metro station for about $3 RMB or Taxi for $14.00 RMB. We took the subway to the Pudong International Airport from the hotel for $7.00 RMB per person, the taxi ride is more than $200 per cab. The ride took about 70 minutes early in the morning. There is a very good noodle restaurant near the hotel across the YuYuan station on Remin Road. Its a small restaurant with a big red sign written in Chinese on the left side of the road. The staffs of the hotel are very friendly, especially the housekeeper. She did an excellent job to clean our room. Breakfast is plentiful with many varieties, the pastries are excellent and very tasty.
Impressed with breakfast”
We just stayed for 2 days in SSAW The Bund but we definitely love it. We love the variation in the breakfast menu, there are a lot of variation, it's fresh, and most of all, the menu change the next day, definitely not something we often found in hotels. The location is great, near the Yu Garden, not far from Bund. The room is nice, we felt the organic soap and shampoo are special. We waited quite long for taxi but the reception try to help us, we appreciated the effort though. Definitely will come and stay again in there when we visit Shanghai again.
Dear valued Guest, Thank you very much for choosing SSAW Boutique Hotel Shanghai Bund recently. We thank you for sharing your comments with us and the travel community. We always work very hard to ensure all our valued Guests enjoy their stay with us and I will most definitely share your comments with the entire team.

In my opinion, I love Ssaw Boutique Hotel”
Very good location as it's only 5 minutes from Yuyuan Garden Metro Station Exit 4. Staffs are friendly and helpful. We were very lucky to be upgraded to a family room 3005, which is very big. We were staying there from 20th to 26th October 2019 and every day is a happy day. Room is very clean and drinks in the refrigerator are free, they replenish everyday. Supper after 10pm is free every night. Very cosy and quite hotel. I will definitely stay in this hotel again when I visit Shanghai again. Yuyuan Garden is just a 10 minutes walk from hotel. From Yuyuan Garden Station you can go anywhere easily. Thanks to the team from Ssaw Boutique Hotel. From Mary & Amy Singapore
Perfect Location central to key attractions in downtown Shanghai”
Really loved the central location of Ssaw which is walking distance to Yu Yuan Garden, the Bund, People's Square, and even Xin Tian Di. Heater in room up to 35C made us comfy during the cool winter weather. Breakfast buffet offers plenty of Chinese and Western options. What I find really practical is having the option to swap breakfast with lunch, afternoon tea, or dinner ala carte. The hotel even served late supper from 20:00 to 21:30. Ssaw also offers self service laundry. Awesome value to reserve 2 standard rooms for our family of 5!
