In the teeming metropolis that is Shanghai it was refreshing to find a nine room hotel just 400m walk from The Bund and close to the bustle of Nanjing Road. This three level hotel was built in 1928 in Shanghai's heyday and has been refurbished with a restaurant and classic interiors which makes it feel like a warm and friendly home. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and some have stone fireplaces. There is no lift which is not an issue as long as you are able bodied. The staff are friendly and accommodating and some speak a little English but little is the operative word. Close by is the glorious Bund and a ferry ride costing 2 yuan or 35c takes you on a passenger ferry across The Huangpu River to the 21st century glitz of Pudong. Looking from The Bund to Pudong is amazing but looking from Pudong to The Bund is equally so. Old Shanghai on one bank brand spanking new on the other. In The Hyatt which has its lobby on Lvl 87 of The World Financial Centre, non guests can have a drink in the bar on lvl 91. That is truly amazing and a must see. A drink there is hyper expensive but it is free to access whereas the lower Pearl charges a 120 yuan entry fee and a drink is also expensive. A must visit is The Peace Hotel where the same jazz band has played every night since the 1940s. Get in early to get a good seat as surely these old guys cannot live and play forever. Shanghai. An awesome experience and the Bund Garden summarised the city's dichotomies.
