Convenient location with conformable room

Super reasonable price to a four star hotel, our three nights stay is very pleasant. Carpet is hard to keep up for the heavy traffic. One suggestion : hardwood or tile or marble floor will be a better choice.

Good value, but some annoyances

The hotel is about two blocks away from many shops where you can find just about any store. In another direction, about six blocks aware, you'll find a gorgeous view of downtown Shanghai at the Bund River (hence the name of the hotel). The staff is very friendly, helpful, and willing. They always open the door for you, help you with your luggage, and we even had one guy call for a taxi for us. What I didn't like was the room itself. Before I go on, I recommend paying the extra $5-10 for a Cityview room where the view is unbelievable. The room itself had stains all over the carpet and the walls. The bathtub badly needed to be regrouted, and the toilet kept running and we had to manually fix it after almost every flush. Word of caution: The air conditioning unit will not turn on when the outside temperature is under 26 degrees (we checked with hotel manager). Thus, it makes for very uncomfortable nights when it's about 24-25 degrees outside and you keep your windows open. This led to about two nights where neither of us could sleep because of how warm it was even while naked and no sheets. There was a misfortunate understanding when we were surprised with room service and we assured them we never purchased any. We received a call about 15 minutes later where they tried to convince us that someone called from our room and called room service 15 minutes prior. I can assure you that we were both in the room up to an hour prior and neither of us even touched the phone. Because of this, the staff receives 3 stars. They would've received 5 stars for staff had they not attempted to convince us that we purchased something when we, in fact, did not. They said a male called from the room, which would've been me, except I know for a fact I never once touched the phone in my entire stay. The building has an executive lounge that I visited briefly for the breakfast buffet. For future reference, it's on the 17th floor and not the 3rd floor as advertised. We also ate dinner on the 3rd floor and it was rather tasty. Overall, hotel is rather good but you get what you pay for.

When you exit the building, turn left and walk about two streets. You'll find a small mall within a building with 3 floors. The bakery is good, the gelato is fantastic, and there is some other good stuff in there too.

Weekend in Shanghai

The Riverside Bund is perfectly located to visit all the popular places in central Shanghai. It is an easy walk to the metro and then one or two stops away from Pudong, French Concession, Peoples Park and West Nanjing. You can walk to the Bund in less than ten minutes. We have stayed there before and always enjoyed the experience but on our last trip the hotel experienced some mechanical issues and could not provide us with a room. They drove us to a more expensive hotel and paid for our room and breakfast. When we did check in to the Riverside Bund they had upgraded us to a suite. We will stay here whenever we visit Shanghai.

It 's a very good hotel, good location with very affordable rate ($69/nite# comparing with others in the same "stars" or higher such as Renaissance Yangtze hote l#$139/nite) which I booked for few days stays earlier. Room with view at a high floor. Close to many popular attractions.

Great for Extended Stays

We stayed in multiple rooms for a week, and overall, it was a great experience. Try to get rooms on the 10th floor and above because there is WiFi/the rooms are nicer. A major pro is location - close to the bund.
