Our travel agent booked this hotel after we told her we wanted to stay on or near The Bund. She told us it is a little quirky so we were looking forward to seeing what she mean. On our arrival we loved the location and the reception area certainly lived up to our expectations. We paid for an upgrade to a river view room and were blown away by the view to the "Manhattan" side of the river. The room was certainly not your average "beige" room found in most hotels but an eclectic mix of Chinese and western style and the bathroom was something to behold with full length windows facing the river - not for the shy, but there were blinds for the more modest.
The hotel was very well located, being at the southern end of The Bund and about a 10 to 15 minute walk to Old Shanghai and the Yu Gardens. The roof top bar became a regular spot to watch the sun set and all the lights on the buildings on both sides of the river. Thoroughly recommend this hotel.
