4-star hotel near Nanjing Road Shanghai

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 22, 2014

You can reach this Hotel from Shanghai Pudong (PVG) airport using public transport. Take the Maglav Fast/Super Fast train to the last destination, exit Maglav station and get the Metro Train (Line 2 - East Nanjing Road Exit) . Tips: Good to get some currency converted to RMB , if possible get some coins too. Hotel is within the walkable distance from East Nanjing Road station exit, but If you are travelling to this location for the first time, get a taxi (taxi driver may not agree to take you as it is a short distance, but keep trying. Good to have a Shanghai map too, you can get it free from Airport).

Stayed for 4 nights: This hotel is convenient for travelers who want to stay closer to downtown and enjoy the quick access to major shopping places and nightlife spots. Area of the hotel property is not so touristy place. Hotel Concierge was helpful and the Check In wasn't complicated. Foreign Exchange was available on the counter.

Room Booked was 'Superior River View" but hardly I can see the river from my room window however the view of the city lights (TV Tower) was magnificent at night (should changed the room name to City View). I found the room clean and the bathroom was well maintained, but some wear and tear can be noticed on the curtains. Rooms are not of big size but it wasn't a major issue as I didn't intend to play soccer inside. The best part was sitting on the window balcony and having wine while watching the city lights. Note: The hotel bell boys are quite friendly and helpful, they even give me an umbrella for free when I was walking out in the rain. Tried the breakfast in the upstairs restaurant , not impressed by the food but the view of the city was magnificent from the restaurant windows.

Yes, I would recommend to someone to stay if they love shopping and having some great night life.

Unique Quality: Close to Nanjing Road, Close to Pudong, Close to Nightlife happening places. Reachable by public transports.

Directions: You can walk through from Nanjing Lu (road) using the alley way next to Apple Store. Not recommended with luggage. Bit tricky but fun to take the route, try the street food on the way.

This hotel is strategically located. 5 minutes walk from metro station. 15 minutes walk to The Bund or by cab. Cab fare is about RMB14 to The Bund. 10 minutes walk to Nanjing Street Shopping Mall - no. shopping street in Shanghai. There are a few eateries nearby like porridge stalls but the owners speak only Mandarin. There is a famous Yang's Fry Dumpling shop about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. My room was clean and cozy. There are 2 types of internet connection. One of our room is using line connection and the other is Wifi. The staff service was very efficient. We requested for 2 cabs to Nanpu Bridge bus station and both came within 5 minutes. We paid about US$68 for doubles. Additional bed cost 200 yuan more.

Directions: East Nanjing Road Metro Station Line 2, Exit 6.

Upon arriving in Shanghai for the first time, I was transported to The Bund Riverside Hotel, located right near the Bund and near Nanjing Road. Upon entering the lobby, I had a great first impression right away and knew this would be a great trip. First impressions are good, especially when traveling, no matter if it's the people you meet or the place you stay at. It can add to the experience. The rooms here were great. Nice and comfortable. The bathroom's were clean and polished. The view from my room was especially great! There were always a stock of tootbrushes with toothpaste, bottled water and lotions and shower stuffs. My only complaints were a couple of things. The beds were a bit on the firm side. Not what I'm used to as a humble Westerner. But I'm sure it's a cultural thing, who knows? And also, the internet you had to pay for, even with a LAN connection. They do have a business center that's opening from 9 AM to about 6 PM. I can't remember the hours off hand now. But other than that, I was satisfied with my stay. Not dirty and the staff tried their hardest to understand you. Don't forget you're in China so English is not their mother tongue! The business center can also mail postcards for you if you have some to send off. There was also a choice of a local cuisine restaurant and a dining area on the top floors that had a good buffet breakfast with some dishes changing daily. As for exactly how much a day, since this hotel was included in my travel itinerary price, I didn't have to pay the flat rate when I got there. It's best to consult the official site for exact quotes.

Unique Quality: The lobby was really swanky and in my opinion, very upscale. A nice place to relax. It also gives great views on all sides. The view from my hotel had a bit of everything, a sight off Nanjing Road to the southwest and the Bund from the northeast. This made my stay. The Western-style dining area on the top floors also gave great views. A nice way to start the day while eating some breakfast! It was in a favorable area as it was close to the Bund and Nanjing Road. A unique concept for me was the way to turn the lights on and off. There's a slot near the door inside the room where you put your hotel key card inside to turn it on. When you want to turn it off, you remove it and it shuts down everything. I also had to do this at my hotel in Beijing I would find later.
