The location of this hotel couldn't be more perfect -- it's within minutes from Nanjing East Road where all the famous foods/shopping area is located. Stroll down the street towards the Bund where a 10 minute walk will lead you to the water! Our biggest concern in China was safety and this area is 100% safe with people walking up... More

The hotel is in a good location, just a 10 minute walk to the main shopping area and transport links. This was a last minute booking. Upon check-in, they informed us that the only available rooms were ones with a king-size bed or, if we really wanted a twin beds, then we could opt for the room with no windows!... More

I have stayed in this hotel earlier also. This hotel is a 5 minute walk with luggage from East Nanging station. Take exit 2 or 5. The road itself is too shady and the hotel is in the middle of nowhere. It's a good 10 minute walk from Bund and 5 minutes from the shopping in East Nanging road. There... More

The very moment we checked in the staff were very rude and unwelcoming. We first had a few problems that were difficult to solve and it seemed like the reception staff were uninterested and thought if us as more trouble than we are worth. There was one man (perhaps the assistant manager) was by far the rudest man I've ever... More

Our family stayed for one night at The Bund Riverside Hotel while we were waiting for a cruise out of Shanghai. The location was really good with the Nanjing Shopping Area within 5 minutes walking distance. It wasn't a long taxi drive from other tourist hotspots like the Shanghai World Financial Centre for example. The hotel decor and facilities are... More

This is my second time at this hotel, the first was three years ago and it has definitely deteriorated. The carpets in my room very stained and even very dirty to say the least, you would not dare walk barefoot on them! The breakfast is definitely not the bargain of the month and is extremely limited.
