Shanghai Bund South China Harbour View Hotel
Ranked #161 of 5,112 Hotels in Shanghai
Reviewed 17 May 2012

This hotel commands one of the best views in the world today and is aptly named.
The Bund in itself is a wonder and is 400 mts from the front door but the river ......my gosh the HungPo travels right past your window and is absolutely crowded with all type of boats.
We spent hours just looking out of the hotel window exposed to barges,pleasure craft,police baots andnavy vessels.
Glance to the left and you have a mind boggling light show up and down the sides of some of the highest buildings in Shanghai .
Top hotel as well!

Room Tip: Ask for the river view the extra few dollar is worth it.

I have stayed here twice and of course, it's good that is why I went back the second time. I wanted to write this review a while back but I did get the time to sit down and write until now. The second time I stayed was in the year 2010 where I stayed for a month and the first time was in 2009 when I stayed for almost half a year.

Yes, they cut me a deal for a much lesser price since I stayed for almost 6 months. The rooms are spacious, they gave me a suite with a living room, small kitchen and the bedroom. The location is nice and quiet and is closed to the BUND, great view of the BUND from the hotel room that I was staying in. It is not closed to the subway, but if you know the bus route it is very convenient.

It's clean which is very important, the only thing I would complain about is the bathroom where the water sink was clogged at the bath tub on several occasion but when I asked them to fix it, it was done immediately.

The hotel also had washing machines where you need to buy tokens to wash your clothes. Which I quite like rather than throwing it for dry cleaned which could be pricy at the hotels. So, here you can do your laundry once a week and also has dryers where you could dry your clothes of course.

Food is alright but the view from the restaurant upstairs is excellent. Overall, it is nice, clean and convenient. Away from the noise yet a great view of the BUND from a distance. Enjoy!

Room Tip: They also recently renovated, not sure if all the rooms are renovated, but find out which floor of t...

I stayed at Panorama hotel for a weekend because of its price and proximity to the bund. Staff is unfriendly and speaks little English. I got a very spacious living room, average bedroom and tiny kitchen and bathroom. Excellent view of the bund from the 26 floor. Cleanliness of living and bedroom is acceptable but toilet and kitchen were just dirty, black mould in bathroom. It is far to walk to any metro station.

First thoughts were very negative. Tired rooms, dirty carpet, black mould in bathroom. REALLY hard bed. Unfriendly staff. No conciergecservices.

Breakfast pretty average. Great views if you get a front room. Good location.

Try to stay somewhere else

Room Tip: Get a view. Better still, get a different hotel.

Just off the Bund, this hotel has lots going for it despite obvious problems. Great location close to transport, gardens, spectacular river vistas, exercise on the Bund and close contact with the locals. The best feature of a ten day stay in a three room suite on the tenth floor, was without doubt the sumptuous breakfast which erased all the problems of ageing decor, cigarette smoked furniture, sluggish air conditioning and old fashioned television sets, concreted bed mattresses and stained carpets. We survived a regular overflowing of the shower unit which helpfully had a Please Slip Carefully sign on the wall...a very nice Chinglish warning... and we developed a system of transferring the living room suite cushions onto the bed so as to make sleeping more comfortable. The other useful expedient was to pop into the local markets and purchase your own air deodoriser for immersing the carpet with lavender spray to rid the wonderful spacious suite of rooms of the appalling dead cat spells. Now the food offerings were so memorable that we were more than prepared to forgive Accor for allowing this hotel to remain in business. Thanks to the obviously stressed staff who were patently aware of how awful some aspects of their workplace were, they deserve better than this run down and poorly maintained hotel. Hopefully, the Accor management will get the message and renovate big time.
