The name "The Bund Hotel" is a misnomer. I say this because this hotel is nowhere near the Bund. It is not within walking distance or anything, so it's only named this way to trap unsuspecting tourists who wish to have an authentic hotel experience staying on the beautiful bund, only to realize that the bund is a few kilometers down the road. The hotel's location is just awful. It is surrounded by dim sum shops that smell like feces. Across the road is a motorcycle repair shop that comes with multiple greasy Chinese men who ogle your sister and mother as you walk past. Leaving the hotel at night will prompt you to be approached by toothless prostitutes and their sketchy pimps. Be prepared to hear "Excuse me sir, you want lady massagey?!" The interior of the hotel isn't actually that bad... until you breathe in through your nose. The entire place is smokey and smells like toilets. The english spoken by the staff members can hardly be called english. They also don't care about you at all. The review before mine by Tanya M is very funny to me, because I too entered the restaurant and laughed away at the "Chinglish" on the menu. The beds were as hard as concrete slabs, so don't expect to get much sleep.
