You can find a hotel fit for you easily. Many of them are expensive, but I think you can have a comfortable rest.

Peace Hotel
very near the Bund

Peace Hotel
very near the Bund

This is a hotel with charatcer. Of course not like Ritz Calrton. I chose to stay there once, becos of the history behind it. It was THE place in the early 20s-30s where grand balls were once held etc. It is at the corner of the bund, and if you go up to the rood top for coffee. you have an excellent view. The hotel is very old, and has unique decoration...watch out on the lights near the banquet hall...it is almost like french lalique...
the bar is still original look as before...i am just so amused by it.
We had a simple chinese meal at their chinese restaurant...pretty good - and again excellent view. very chinese looking restaurant....!!!!

If you can speak a bit of Chinese, you can save some $$ by staying in this hotel, The San Hang Hotel.

Although it was one of the lowest priced hotels in the area, it was a new hotel so everything worked including the air conditioning.

We mainly selected this hotel because it was closest to our relatives.
The price we paid is USD was approximately $22/night for a standard 'B' single room, $24 for a standard 'A' single room and $45 for a deluxe suite.

All rooms had airconditioners.

The deluxe suite had a separate living room with a leather sofa, two leather chairs and a water cooler. The arrangement is great if you expect to entertain guests.

This hotel is small in comparison to other hotels in the area, only six (6) floors and there no pool or workout facilities.

The Peace hotel is excellent, the location excellent, service,price, people all first rate. A nice quality room is approx $100/night US and you cannot get a better location. Right on the Bund and on Nanging Road. With a great jazz band performing nightly , a 24hr store around the block, Rooftop garden with beautiful view. If you can afford it, I cannot think of a better place for a great experience.

The Pine City Hotel...

The Pine City Hotel (Qingsongcheng dajiudian), a three star venture, is located in the southwest part of Shanghai, near the Xujiahui commercial and shopping center. It takes 20 minutes to get to the Hongqiao International Airport, which is 13km away, and 1 hour to the Pudong International Airport by bus. From Xujiahui, which is 1km from the hotel, the city's metro system will take you to most important places in Shanghai.

Recreationally the Pine City has a multitude of restaurants and other facilities. The Peony and Gengyun Restaurants serve a good selection of Cantonese and traditional Chinese dishes while the Violet Restaurant provides good Western food. The hotel also offers a night club, table tennis tables, a bowling alley, a billards room, a gym, a sauna, and a tennis court.

Y.M.C.A. Hotel

Y.M.C.A. Hotel

The Y.M.C.A. Hotel was built in 1929. It is a typical construction featuring the two architectural styles: the modern style for its multi- storeyed apartment design and the Chinese traditional style which is demonstrated by both the exterior faced with glazed tiles and the interior decorated in Chinese palatial style. It used to be a Christian construction in China.

Shanghai has the highest...

Shanghai has the highest prices for real estate on mainland China. As a result, although there are literally hundreds of hotels in the city, most of the best ones are pretty expensive, especially in comparison with elsewhere in the country. However, while prices do not compare, standards are noticeably better. Shanghai has a selection of the very best hotels in China. Services, style and quality in the five star hotels in the city are exceptional and the choice too, is enough to satisfy many different tastes. Most of the top hotels (RMB800 to RMB1,400) fall into two categories; old art deco style renovated buildings such as The Peace Hotel, and brand spanking new towers of sophistication like The Grand Hyatt. Most of these hotels are located in the downtown area, including The Portman Ritz-Carlton Hotel on Nanjing Road, The Hilton Hotel on Huashan Road; and The Pudong Shangri-la. All these places boast first class services and advanced facilities with that additional Shanghai twist- a bit of style.

At the bottom end of the market, there is notably less choice. There are a few hotels with reasonable rooms under RMB200 but many of these are on the outskirts of the city and it's a drag to get to them. The only realistic budget options for those just visiting the city are the Pujiang Hotel and the Conservatory of Music. The prices here are pretty good but these Hotels are usually busy, so try and book ahead.

Shanghai Mansions

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.

I think the greatest hotel in Shanghai should be the Grand Hyatt,so the price should be the highest. It's usually around 1300RMB+15% service charge(about $190).But here also has many 3-stars and 4-stars hotels which are not very expensive.Usually,3-stars hotels just cost you around $30-$40.Sometimes,you even can get discount which depends on if it's in tourism peak time. Also,here has one youth hostel,so that's cheaper.
3 star:$30-$45
4 star:$60-$90
youth hostel:$8-$15
