Ok place If you like arrogance and staff that prefer not to be bothered. Upity, trendy hotel that could learn from the major hotel chains what customer service means. Oh, and if you need a cab?? Forget it and start walking.

Char Bar is as awesome with the view and the drinks. Must visit. Top location with roof top bar. Cool music and reasonable prices. Finger food and Cocktails. Good to get around at the south bund. A secret tip in town. Cover charge is 100 RMB with a free drink included. Thanks for the good service @Winnie :-)

Carey and Chris at the front desk were very kind to upgrade two rooms for my customers, including for one who was on his first visit to China. We really appreciate the kind and thoughtful service by these two workers. Thank you!!

Very modern hotel on the Bund. Excellent standard of rooms and great staff. The breakfast combines the best of the Asian and Western. The view from the 30th floor bar is amazing plus the bar has a great collection of cocktail sand wines.

Sitting on the bank of Huangpu river, Hotel Indigo Shanghai gives you a stunning view of the Bund at night. The room I stayed had a full-length glass wall facing the river. I opened the curtain the whole night when I was sleeping and it was really amazing. Another highlight of the room is its big bathroom. I enjoyed sitting...

In a city like shanghai, you have many fantastic places. But I would say Indigo has one of the best views in the city.

The Inidgo is clean, modern, stylish and in a fantastic location, right on the Bund. I love staying on the Bund and being able to take a long walk early in the am or late at night, a rarity in China. What's the problem? All functionality is sacrificed for style. The furniture looks great, but is totally uncomfortable. Who wants...

Staying in South Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
South Bund
This waterfront area below the most famous section of the Huangpu River has undergone multiple phases of development that started when the Waterhouse Hotel opened its doors. Though it’s been slower to catch on than people expected, every year something new and exciting opens up and gives people a reason to keep calling the South Bund the "Next Big Thing." There are a couple of landmark hotels and restaurants of excellent quality that serve as anchors, and multiple annual events such as beer festivals, art and fashion fairs and music shows take advantage of the wide spaces, waterfront location and the tiny man-made beach to host huge crowds of people. Wandering about the newness, one can stumble upon authentic Chinese life in the stone gates of people’s residences or the street markets.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Indigo’s first property in Asia Pacific opened its doors in December 2010. Sitting directly on the Huangpu riverfront, Hotel Indigo Shanghai on the Bund assures not only spectacular views of both the historic Bund and dramatic Pudong skylines, but an upscale boutique hotel experience where the focus is on inspired service, fresh and vibrant design reflecting the local neighbourhood, and providing guests with an authentic taste of today’s Shanghai, where old and new converge. Featuring 184 rooms, including 23 suites, each individually designed room at Hotel Indigo Shanghai on the Bund provides all of the creature comforts expected from an upscale boutique property, but they are anything but ordinary. Maximizing the spectacular views and combining traditional and modern Chinese design and bespoke pieces, each room provides an intimate haven and unexpected details – be it the walk in “shell shower” featured in a number of guest bathrooms, the oversized wet room with spectacular views, the reclaimed Shikumen brick feature wall or the hidden refreshment bar with individually designed tea sets. All Guests can enjoy the bund view at the public areas. Attention: The Shanghai Regulations on Smoking Control in Public Places took effect on March 1, 2017. Hotel can’t offer smoking room and smoking has been banned in indoor place. ... more   less
