Good location, nice staff, great choice of breakfast. rooms are a bit dated but very clean with lots of amenities. The bund is in walking distance. We stay hear to attend meeting nearby the hotel, so did not notice how far is the metro station. It is a good hotel with reasonable price and comfortable.

We booked 2 rooms and phoned hotel (as they didn't respond to question via booking.com) to check that the rooms would have an internal connecting door as we have 2 young children. We were assured this was the case. But when we checked in this wasn't the case and they had no rooms like this.

I've enjoyed staying at the Riverview. The rooms are a good size and are very clean and well maintained. The only slight downside is that it's a good walk to the underground and taxis are sometimes hard to get. For the price the hotel is great value.

We stayed 2 nights here. A good location to the water front but not much of a river view. Most rooms had none. English was not widely spoken with hotel staff, so be ready for some frustrations. They were difficult at times. We arrived after a 12 and half our flight. Got to the hotel by 8.50. Would not let... More

Great and spacious rooms, modern and well designed. Breakfast is good if you do not leave it too late. When mouse droppings were spotted in the cereal the waiter just shrugged his shoulders. On checkout I arranged for a complimentary room to change before going to the airport. When the time came no room was available and the manager told... More

I got a really great deal on booking.com for a few nights here. I chose it because of the location, close to the Bund as well as the price. The hotel itself was as expected for the price, a little dated, a little out of fashion but all in all not a bad stay. It was comfortable, it had everything... More

We ended up with a larger room than normal. Good location, close to bund and river boats. English was fine Breakfast not worth paying extra for. It was included for us, but would have walked to Starbucks instead of paying for breakfast Beds to too hard for my taste

When reading the reviews we were a bit scary what to see but the hotel was perfect. Staff was friendly, rooms good. WiFi worked. Even air-conditioning worked well and was individually manageable per room. Location on walking distance from the Bund. Absolut recommendable!

This is a luxury hotel in a pretty good part of Shanghai - we upgraded to an executive room on the second top floor, superb bedding/pillows- great views and very spacious. The Captains Bar, (outside and to the right hand side), has a decent bar meal menu and a good range of what appear to be craft brewed beers -... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the streets that serve as the border to the old city. An aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan (which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists every day, but wandering the streets around the complex reveals more exciting attractions such as food and antique markets. There are also streets lined with shops peddling everyday wares such as Chinese dining ware and craft notions that can be even more enticing to visitors uninterested in the usual tourist fare.
