We had stayed at the Kingtown Riverside whilst seeing the Port Power game in Shanghai in May. Staff do not speak much english at all, that didn't seem to bother us as we tried our best to communicate. I also installed Google Translate before the trip which is a massive help! The Bed was spacious and very comfy with arrange...

The location is fantastic. Just one stop by underground to the People's Square or 15 minutes' walk to the central. Room size is good with unique design that it looks like a junior suite, with a work desk. The highlight is the two mini balconies in room. There is a Swatow restaurant opposite the hotel, bubble tea shops nearby. These...

For the price we paid (£47/ night) for a superior twin room, it was worth the price. Room was clean. Hotel staff pleasant except not many spoke English. Ten minutes walk from People's Square, so a convenient location. The only negative about the hotel is the road where the hotel is on. Tucked in a tiny quiet street.

I honestly loved this hotel. The price was decent, the rooms were very clean and modern, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the location is 5 min walk to the metro station. I did contemplate staying somewhere closer to people's square or the bund, but I am very happy with choosing this hotel. People's square is less than 20...

This hotel very near to the metro station line 1. The area was very near to Nanjing walking street where you can walk and shopping there. And this area was neighborhood. Overall the service is great but noise level can't be avoided as their building renovate now. You will be shock someone outside your window chitchat because they were painting...

Breakfast very disappointing, little choice of western food and everything stone cold.

I was really disappointed with this hotel. Housekeeping doesn't do a great job. We moved the chair in the room to find ripped up paper and a penny underneath; so use the slippers provided! Wifi is very slow. I'm really surprised at how high this hotel ranks. It doesn't deserve it.

We stayed here as part of a Peregrine tour. Location is ok, breakfast is awful, only a couple of staff speak English and communicating with them without our guide was very tricky. The rooms present fine but really need a good clean. I would recommend staying a little closer to the bund in a slightly higher standard if budget allows.

We stayed in a superior queen room here and the room was huge. Lovely big shower and bath, toiletries and fluffy towels. It is very close to shops and restaurants which is very convenient. There is also a small local convenience store opposite the hotel. Breakfast is nice and even some things for western people.
