5-star from $403
No. 32 The Bund, Zhongshan Dong Yi Road, Huangpu, 200002 Shanghai
Generally speaking, it is a hotel of understated luxury. Extraordinary location by the Bund provides a great view of the Huangpu River and the architectural complex on the east bank of the river, which highlights the stay there. Spacious rooms with ultra modern interiors meet everything you expect from a 5-star hotel, not alone the very comprehensive in-room amenities, perfect for business or private use. It is highly recommended to try the well- recognized top-tier afternoon tea in the lobby. There are varied choices for dining inside and around the area. You can also find luxury brands inside the hotel.
Nevertheless, there also exist downsides. Limited choices for breakfast and inconvenient access to transports are obvious ones. Average (occasionally problematic) customer service might not live up to 5-star standards. Also, expect for non-hotel guests walking in and out owing to its popularity as a landmark hotel.
