“Awesome boutique hotel, Great location!”
Reviewed 14 November 2009

I am a huge fan of Langham Place Hong Kong so I decided to give the Shanghai hotel a try.
Fantastic location, Great staff and a very cool Art Deco hotel.

Reviewed 24 September 2009

New stylish hotel, room and bathroom are both nicely designed and spacious. We had steak and fried rice for in room dining on the first night which are quite ok although a bit pricey. Shower nob is already broken although hotel is so new. What is unacceptable is that we got a call from outside stranger (lady) on the room offerring my boyfriend a "massage" as the room is booked under his name. We complained that some insdier must have provided the guest list to outside for the operators to transferred the call h owever hotel manager denied and said it's impossible. We had breakfast there for 2 mornings and we had to sent back our Chinese tea both days and asked for Earl Gray instead as the Chinese tea tasted like nothing. Either they bought the wrong leaves or they had no idea how to make Chinese tea!!! Spa is NYC Mandarin hotel prices, so we didn't try it even with the 50% off for guests!! What is nice of them is that they did allow us to have a very late check out as our flights were in the evening.

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
