I just finished a 3 day stay at the Riverview Hotel and was very satisfied. The location is great. The Bund, Old Shanghai Street and the Yuyuan Gardens were all easy walks from the hotel. I ate in the hotel restaurant only once, ordering dumplings and mo po tofu from the room service menu and both were very tasty. For the more adventurous persons, there is plenty of tasty food to be had along Old Shanghai Street at very affordable prices but be prepared to eat like the locals. A little further away is even more food at the YuYuan Gardens with more variety and higher prices. The room was clean and not noisy. The bed was unusually hard but comfortable. Housekeeping was a little stingy with water and coffee but they were willing to send someone up with more of both when I asked, no problem. There's an in-room safe but read the instructions carefully before using! I did not and I ended up having to ask someone to come up to open the safe for me. There's a little red button on the inside of the safe door that you have to press first to get it to work. Taxis were readily available and the trip to the Pudong airport ran almost RMB 200, so be prepared. Staff speak pretty good English. Free Wifi. Book through Agoda or Priceline to get a very significant discount and save alot of money!
