“Great location and excellent room”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We loved our 5 night stay at the Yangtze Boutique. We ended up upgrading to a suite and were so happy with our decision. The room was comfortable, well decorated, and we loved all the space in the bathroom. It wasn't necessary, but it was a nice change while on vacation to have that much space. The breakfast buffet had good options. It definitely didn't lack in variety and I loved the fruit bowls that were already prepared. The location was excellent. This is right at a metro location and the lines that passed through this station took us to pretty much every place we needed or wanted to go. It was even convenient to reach from the hotel. We took the Maglev and the metro and came right out at the hotel (I think it was exit 14 in the station that pops up by the hotel front door). We were a short walk from the Bund and had plenty of choices nearby for food. I would definitely stay here again!

We arrived from Canada to a beautiful hotel in downtown Shanghai, a short walk to the subway and to the Nanjing East outdoor shopping area. It is a wonderful hotel, 80 years old and fully modernized with beautiful furnishings and very clean and comfortable rooms. The hotel staff were absolutely wonderful and helpful, particularly Jekky and Toby, both of whom were extremely helpful, and made our stay feel like home. I will definitely stay here again in future visits.

This hotel does not deserve the high rating and is not a five stars hotel. Just an average four stars. Most of the rooms have very limited view or even no view. The bathroom is strange with the bathtub and the shower sharing the same space. The fridge was not operating and the drinks were not cold. Coffee and tea are very basic. Early check-in was not possible because hotel was fully booked (You never have this situation in other Chinese hotels who always accept early check-in - very convenient for arriving early flight). The atmosphere is however nice because the hotel is small and warm and the location is very convenient.

The Yangtze Boutique is an excellent luxurious hotel.

It is centrally located in the heart of Shanghai. From the moment you enter, you're immediately greeted with the warm fragrance of fresh roses. And then it gets better.

The guests are truly pampered here at the Yangtze Boutique. The rooms are luxuriously furnished. The amenities are of an above average quality from the very well cushioned slippers to the unusually soft and comfortable bathrobes. There is a TV in the bathroom in addition to the main room and the tubs and showers are very spacious and comfortable.

The only minor drawback is that it is not an inexpensive hotel. At $200 per night, some guests may in fact find it quite expensive. But the hotel definitely delivers and its worth every cent.

this was really a luxury (though soulful) experience of shanghai accomodation. even comparing with the higher-rated hotels where i've stayed after the yangtze showed itself as truly boutique hotel, with a unique touch in decoration, premium comfort and excellent location (next to the people's square, 15 min walking from the bund). i booked their art deco room, which was spacious, with big bathroom (ha ha with tv on the wall, felt like in vegas ))) and fine interior details. also was nice of their concierge to give me a really good piece of advice on choosing the right water town to visit and arranged the whole trip for me. breakfasts are good, but a bit expensive.

Wonderful experience, superb location, good breakfast, nice and friendly staff and all that. But …. when I came home I found that I had forgotten several packages of tea and a teapot. May sound little but was actually very, very expensive - as that can be in Shanghai. I mailed the hotel and the friendly concierge (Ray Zhang) found that room service discovered the packages when cleaning. He mailed a photo so I could verify that it was mine and then sent it airmail express and I had it with me in Sweden 4 days later. Tea etc. worth around USD 1.000! So, if you are likely to forget something, don't even think of staying elsewhere!

Room Tip: Higher up and facing the street, unless you mind a bit of street sound

The hotel is located near People Square, close to Nanjin Road, many shops and restaurants are very close. The hotel is in a building of 1935, and the hotel leitmotif is based on that age recalling, beside modern services. Room large and really nice, concierge very helpful and discrete. Italian restaurant (average) at ground floor. Subway station just in front of the hotel, This is really a good location for staying in Shanghai center.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In the center of Shanghai with endless flow of people, there is a place that could take you back to the 1930s to appreciate the golden age of Shanghai. That is The Yangtze Boutique Shanghai.The Yangtze Boutique Shanghai, an Art Deco masterpiece infused with gold age of Shanghai, owns the superior geographical position. Located in the People's Square, centre of Shanghai, the hotel enjoys convenient access to all parts of the city with the Shanghai Metro Lines 1/2/8 less than 30 meters from the hotel. Moreover, the hotel is bordered by major cultural and entertainment highlights within walking distance, such as Nanjing Pedestrian Road, People's Park, the Raffles City, the Shanghai Museum, and the Shanghai Grand Theatre.This hotel attracts guests with its private and graceful environment instead of the splendid and magnificent impression. The stained glass dome looks so gorgeous with carved staircase winding up. The candlelit crystal lighting collocates with palatial valance creating the elegant and sumptuous atmosphere. The unique collections displayed on the wall of guest room floor corridors, such as jewelry boxes, manual-shaving-hair tools, ancient door latch, traditional pipes, ladies' hand bags, Hawksbill needles, cookie boxes, etc, all tell guests the history of Shanghai. Entering each room, the song " Rose, Rose, I love you" reminds each guest of the prosperity of the old Shanghai with its sweet voice and nostalgia melody. Standing on the guest room private balcony, you could feel the quick pace of the modern city while retrospect the past good times at the same time.Yangtze Hotel, the predecessor of The Yangtze Boutique Shanghai, opened in 1934, owns 80 years of history. Decorated with lavish art deco style, this hotel was touted as "The Third Largest Hotel in the Far East" by the renowned architect, Li Pan. This hotel used to be a popular social resort gathered many celebrities and movie stars, and it was exactly the birthplace of the most classic and well-known song "Rose, Rose, I love you". In order to inherit this cultural heritage, Yangtze Boutique reserves this song as the background music in the room, and names one suit of room as "Rose Suite" to be one of the signature of the hotel, which becomes the favorites of many guests. Over the past 80 years, the Yangtze Hotel witnessed the ups and downs of Shanghai. In 2009, the Yangtze Hotel was renovated gorgeously and re-emerged in a great sumptuous way, reserving the classic Art Deco design style while mixing the 1930s old Shanghai style together. Just like the time flying back, The Yangtze Boutique Shanghai guides guests back to the glamorous and extravagant life in old Shanghai with great charm and elegant demeanor. ... more   less
