    Shanghai's very good hotel


    We spend 4 nights at the Broadway Mansions in Shanghai. Its location is ver good, you can walk to the Bund and to Nanjing road.
    The room we got was standard with city view. It was clean and huge.
    The front desk clerks were very helful, eventhough some of them spoke very bad English. We forgot a bag full of clothes I do not where, and they found it and let us knew about it, we even did not know about our lost!
    Bellboys were excellent.
    We definetly would come back to the Broadway Mansions hotel!

  • Broadway Mansions (Shanghai Dasha) (4*)


    A great bit of history. This 1930s building has been used by the US military and more recently by Chairman Mao's wife.
    The ochre brick tower has good views over Suzhou Creek at the front and the Bund beyond.
    Rooms are on the small side, but the hotel is quite cheap. (I think it is 4 star).
    It is feling the years a bit, despite refurbishments, but the staff are unusually friendly and it is better located than it might apear from the map: it is easier and quicker to get to Hongqiao airport, for example, than hotels in the Bund/Renmin Square area, and the station is also not far. The streets either side of Suzhou Creek give a good feel for what old Shanghai must have felt like.

    Unique Quality: Nothing special in any area, but a decent hotel at a fair price.

    Directions: North of Suzhou Creek

Shanghai Mansions

by szabolcs

Shanghai Mansions Very comfortable rooms, EXCELLENT view on the Bund and the Pudong - dazzling at night. Originally (and lately again) called Broadway Mansions, the building was constructed in the 1930s in Chicago Art-Deco style. During WWII it was used by American and later Japanese troops. Back in 1972 Richard Nixon viewed the panorama of the city from the hotel's observation terrace.

Broadway Mansions

by Willettsworld

Broadway Mansions is a nineteen-floor Art Deco four star hotel which is one of the most famous hotels in Shanghai. Located near to the confluence of Suzhou Creek and Huangpu River, as well as the northern end of The Bund, it was built by the architectural and engineering firm of Palmer and Turner, and its completion in 1935 signalled the commencement of the high-rise building era in Asia. In fact it was the highest building in Shanghai until 1950. After it was built, the 9th floor was occupied by The Foreign Correspondents Club who used it to witness the Japanese bombings of Shanghai in 1937. The Japanese used the building as their headquarters during World War II.

The Bund - a symbol of imperialism? - Part 2

by mke1963

In the first half of the 20th Century, the levy was lower and the river less dredged, so the mudbanks were awash with all manner of trading vessels, and the big buildings were warehouses, banks, hotels, and trading exchanges. Not much has changed, except that the warehouses are long gone.
As a quick guide, from south to north, the key reference buildings are:
- Shanghai Pudong Development Bank (big cupola - ex-HSBC HQ)
- Shanghai Customs House (big clock tower)
- China Foreign Exchange Bank (small French white baroque building)
- Peace Hotel (green 'pyramid' dome - ex Cathay Hotel)
- Bank of China (huge slab-sided building next to Peace Hotel)
- Broadway Mansions (on north side of Suzhou Creek, looking down The Bund)

Many seem to suggest that the best view of The Bund is from the river, but I find that this is not true. The lower parts of the buildings are obscured by the huge concrete levy. Just walk up and down the street!

Renovations at Broadway Mansions Hotel

by hayward68

Does anyone know if the renovations are still ongoing at the Broadway Mansions Hotel? I just read a few reviews that said the banging starts around 6-6:30am and it's affecting some of the quality. We're looking for a decent hotel near the Bund as the hostels we wanted seem to be full the nights we need. If the construction is over then we might book at this hotel.

RE: Renovations at Broadway Mansions Hotel


Hengsheng Peninsula International Hotel is near the bund, they have river-view rooms....i also lived 1 night at the Shanghai Chuangye Hotel, which is 3-minute walk to the Bund, but the views out of the windows are terrible... it is surrounded by the old resident buildings....

Thanks. I think we'll skip Broadway Mansions since even my travel agent couldn't find information about renos.
