This hotel has the best, by a big margin, triple glazed windows that eliminate pretty much all traffic noise. That made it a real pleasure to stay here. Its convenient for the Bund, Nanjiang Road and other Shanghai spots. The room was lovely, nice big shower, fluffy towels but no bath robe (OK, not perfect but I'll live with that)....

the reviews here were awful and only went up to when it closed for renovation, based on a decent price and the location we decided to take the risk and it paid off. The hotel is well located and the renovation in the public areas has been a good one, keeping many of the original features and design. We did...

We were a bit confused by the reviews we read before booking: some doubts about the fact that the hotel has been renovated or not and about the location. Our experience was extremely positive. The hotel is brand new, recently renovated with a 20' 30' style copied from Great Gatzby's recent movie. The location is the best of the best...

When I arrived at the hotel, I was assigned a non-smoking room on a non-smoking floor. However, when I got to the room, the room/floor smelled really badly of smoke. It turned out that other floors - despite being smoking floors - didn't. In order to find me a room that was smoke-free, they ended up giving me an upgrade...

What a value for money in central Shanghai. Wanted something different, other than the usual modern design hotels. I am glad to have found this hotel. Classic 1920's, '30's art-deco design throughout the hotel. I was treated with a generous room upgrade upon checking in. Staff were helpful and fluent in English. The room was just wonderful. very comfortable bed....

One of my hobbies and pastime is to stay at least 1 night at historic hotels wherever and whenever I business travel. There were and are a number of "old Hotels" in Shanghai - Peace Hotel, Astor Hotel (the old Richard Hotel), etc. Several were restored to past glories by international label chains - Waldorf Astoria, Intercon Ruijin, Fairmont Peace...

Greeting to a dismayed traveler, I understand how you must have felt. The Metropole opened in 1931, in all her then glory I believe; and now has closed summer 2014. We have closed this historic landmark for a total refurbishment inside, top to bottom. When the hotel reopens refreshed and new again in spring 2016, we will be a part...

Although it is easy to be seduced by the attractive foyer, a trip to you room will reveal how this once attrctive hotel has been allowed to decline through lack of maintenance and greed. It is the only hotel (of seven this trip) that did not offer drinking water inclusive of the room rate but sold it as an extra,...

Let's start with the good. This hotel is in a beautiful Art Deco building and is in an excellent central location. However I knew things weren't off to a good start when before I even got in the front door the local pimp was offering me good prices on a "sexy massage" with a beautiful Chinese lady. Then there was...

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
