We stayed at the WH for 3 nights. This is a perfect hotel if you are interested in architecture/design.
The minibar is without charge and the room was nicely designed. The lobby and bar area are full of designer furniture and had a laid back ambience.
The rooftop has a bar with an impeccable view of Pudong, however only open from 18.
The location gave us a good advantages to explore Shanghai and was in walking distance of many interesting places.
The staff was professional and helpful. The helped us with taxies, table reservation etc.
We had a problem with our coffee machine but they fixed it right away.
There was free wifi provided, not great but ok.
Unfortunately there were some downsides.
Breakfast was very slow and the food not so great.
We had a very nice room on the 1st floor facing the river and Pudong, but it was very noisy. The Bund Beach is just across the street, and since it was the weekend, they had events on Saturday and Sunday. VERY loud music kept on pumping from morning to late. It made us crazy. So be sure to ask for a room facing the courtyard, or check in advance if there are any events at The Bund beach, if you plan to stay here.
There is also a lot of construction in the area that can be somewhat noisy.
I would definitely recommend staying here, it is quite unique and is a must see if you're interested in something out of the ordinary.
