“Design hotel, scenic view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

Wonderful position, on the Bund but far enough to allow a view on the old buildings of the Bund and the modern skyscrapers of Pudong. The location allows to reach easily Pudong, Puxi and both airports.
The bar and the restaurant at the 30th floor are now the top destination for tourists, expats and wealthy people.
The service is good, breakfast is satisfying. A small gym area looking to the river and a small pool. Rooms are furbished with modern Chinese style. Free wifi everywhere, opened to everybody.

Room Tip: Rooms on the old city side look on a building site, so it is better to ask for last floors. Good p...

What a great stay.
Views from every angle.
History. Culture. Contemporary Art. Comfort.
All elements combined beautifully to bring alive Hotel Indigo.
The service was fantastic . thank you Daisy for great coffee every morning.
Quay sved up a great breakfast - cafe style with fresh fruit, pastry, noodles buffet spread + hot dishes (great pancakes and great shanghai local hot breakfast)
Rooms were large, super comfortable and liveable. Large bathrooms. Both with sweeping views across the river and shanghai.
Will be back in September (hopefully shanghai will not be so hot) ... And really look fwd to returning to Hotel Indigo.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the river view , great value, amazing views

It was an eye opening experience of the hotel, location is super! Just right beside the BUND!

I like the decor and amenities, especially the bathroom with Bund view, I will definitely visit it again.

Room Tip: High floor with Bund view, it worth the money paid

Hotel Indigo is a new(2011) hotel in the south Bund area in Puxi.

Location:
Right next to the Bund, but in the south part.
It is away from most tourist attractions and nowhere close to a subway station.
Usually there are taxis outside the hotel if you need to use one.

Room:
Room decor is very nice and very well done.
Old Shanghai style with wall mural of old Shanghai.
Some rooms have a nice view of the Bund but those cost more.
Asked for a Bund facing room but had to pay a lot extra so I declined.
The room I was in, faced south, looking at the road but it still had a bit of the river view.
Bathroom was nice with a different section for the toilet and the shower.
Good high end amenities in the room.
They also provided a small complimentary alcohol drink in the room which was a very nice touch.
Rooms are quiet.

Overall:
It is worth staying if you get a room that fully faces the Bund or upgrade to it.
The location is not very convenient though.

Room Tip: Get a room that faces the Bund/river.

Service was great! From the doorman to the reception staff to the service crew at the cafe, they all made you feel welcomed at the hotel. The decor, befitting the hotel's location (along the bund with rich architectural styles), is amazing and stunning. Especially loved the fun furniture against a green, living backdrop of plants in the lobby! Also loved the idea of the library, the beautiful chess set on the coffee table and the DVD station! The hotel has definitely spared no efforts in making it a beautiful boutique hotel.
My little gripe about the hotel- my toilet bowl cover was stained with unidentified yellowish fluid when i entered the room. Something seemed to be leaking in the toilet as there was always a little puddle of water in the middle of the toilet the 2 days i was there. Lights in the walk-in wardrobe are motion-triggered. That had me staring into a dark wardrobe at night as the bed faces the wardrobe and the wardrobe curtain could not fully conceal the wardrobe entrance. That freaked me out alot as i was staying alone in the hotel. The TV was also at an unfriendly angle- perpendicular to the bed.

Hi june0806,

Thank you so much for your review.

We are delighted that you enjoyed Hotel Indigo.

I have looked immediately into your feedback regarding some liquid dripping in your bathroom.
Its seems that there was some plumbing sealant that when heated had melted...... this has been immediately rectified and we thank you for bringing this to our attention.

See you next time in Shanghai and very best from the Indigo team
