The Yangtze Boutique Shanghai

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Lovely room on 4th floor with balconies (even the bathroom had one...) and a beautifully refurbished art deco hotel throughout. We stayed 12 nights, 20/12/17-1/1/2018. Great location next to Raffles Mall, People's Square and the fantastic metro system. The concierge, Ray, was excellent in helping organise train tickets to Suzhou and Hangzhou and a car and driver to Zhouzhuang.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights (30 October to 4 November 2017) as part of my business trip in Shanghai. I booked an Art Deco Double Room for 5 nights. I checked-in at 2.30pm on 30 October. The person who served me during the check-in advised me that my room was not ready yet, but I was upgraded to a Junior suite since I was staying there for 5 nights. This was a fantastic and unexpected surprise, and I was very grateful for it. The Junior suite n 401 was right in the corner of the hotel on level 4th. The room was huge (50 mts) and had 3 balconies. The en-suite bathroom with a bathtub was super. I am a coffee lover and I really enjoyed the Nespresso coffee machine. The room provides beautiful amenities, nice touch with everything I am also a gym junkie and enjoy working out on level 3. I found the gym to be well-equipped for a hotel standards. The location of the hotel is unbeatable, just 1’ walk from People Square subway, People Park’s itself, and minutes walk from the famous Nanjing Pedestrian Street. Raffles Shopping Centre is just opposite. Some of my business meeting were in Nanjing road, so it was a very pleasant walk and not far from the hotel too. The buffet breakfast offers good variety of Asian and Western options but it is too pricey. CNY 198 for breakfast seems too much! I paid nearly half of this in luxurious hotels in other main cities of China.

Had stayed here for 4 nights and rooms were clean and spacious. The restaurant staff were helpful in assisting to keep my breastmilk frozen given I was a traveling lactating mother. However to my horror, nothing including the chiller bag intended to transport the bm home was frozen on the last night where we handed it to the concierge manager instead of the usual restaurant staff who was off duty. We repeatedly reminded him to keep everything FROZEN. Imagine the pain 5 days of lost "liquid gold" for my young infant and hard work! Would NOT stay here again as there are other options nearby offering better level of service and lower prices.

A very nice boutique hotel in the middle of the centre of Shangai. Great location right next to the Peoples Park station of the main line for transport. Very well equipped rooms, including the all important safe, and very friendly staff on the main doors and reception. The room itself was big and very elegant (especially the bathroom), though I did have an issue getting a good, constant temperature with the AC going on and off, seemingly randomly. Although the hotel is surrounded by much taller buildings which make it difficult to get a good view, there are a couple of terraces on the higher floors where you can go outside and watch the city

HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND!!! RUN AWAY FAST! I would advise that no customer book with the Yangtze Boutique Hotel. I was booked with them when I had a 24 hr layover in Shanghai on our way to Bali. Because of the Mt Agung volcano eruption, our entire trip was cancelled. I notified the hotel 2 days ahead of our check-in date letting them know this situation (flights had already been cancelled and in the process of being refunded) and because I was within the 2-day "no refund cancellation" window (obviously, my trip was cancelled last minute because of a natural disaster, not something you can plan ahead), they are still not refunding the amount I was charged. I have been fighting this for the past 12 days with the company I booked this hotel through, and the reservation office is saying they need a "Cancellation Certificate" in order to refund the amount I was charged - I have provided them cancelled flight confirmations, because CANCELLATION CERTIFICATES are NOT a thing! Like, is China Eastern airline going to send me a "Congratulations, your flight to Bali and entire vacation that you have been planning for 7 months is cancelled" certificate. They do not exist and they are unwilling to speak with me about this matter so here I am. This is absolutely unacceptable as a customer service practice and I fully intend to fight this until my money is refunded.

The hotel is very classic and authentic. The location is perfect and very central yet not too touristy. The service was great for us all along and the concierge helped us a ton through our stay! The room was very large for a city hotel with a great bathroom, heated magical toilet, large bath and shower! Very fancy and luxurious accomodation! Great gym as well! Unfortunately, the breakfast was really disappointing and the bar had no atmosphere - no one there, could listen to the glasses being washed louder than the elevator type music. When I decided to take my cocktail to my room, instead of politely telling me it was against some rule to bring a drink I paid for to my 5star hotel room, the lady literally screamed to my face and made a big scene! We still had a wonderful time and would recommend this hotel!

We chose to stay here due to the centrality of the hotel's location (in People's Square, right opposite Raffles shopping centre, a must for shopping!), as well as the reviews and pictures online. This was our 2nd visit to Shanghai and we needed a better hotel than the one we stayed in previously (another story!) The Yangtze Hotel was the best choice in many ways. Firstly, it is beautifully decorated and felt very comfortable, the large Christmas tree in the reception area was absolutely beautiful and really helped to get us in the Christmas mood! The design and interior of the hotel is up-to-date and is far from drab. The breakfast area was also very well set-up, very open, bright and a lovely place to eat breakfast in the morning. The chefs and cooks are present whilst you dine, which gives a nice feel to things. Lots of nice juices etc available. There are also a number of restaurants to choose from, including a Japanese restaurant, which we did not visit. The bar area is also very nice and relaxing to sit and have a coffee/ chat in, you can easily spend half an hour looking at the décor and the bottles of champagne lined up behind the bar!! Secondly, our bedroom was amazing, it was more like a suite, we had two toilets and a lounge area in addition to our large bathroom, bedroom, separate wardrobe area and hallway. So there was lots of room for suitcases, etc. It was nice to have a bath and a shower, I always like to have the choice! We also enjoyed a lot of free mini cosmetics in our bedroom, they looked and smelled very nice. We even received a pink gift bag in our room to take home our pretty-smelling souvenirs. Our bedroom had a nice relaxing feel to it, perfect for chilling out after shopping and the tours we took. Lots of lighting options which you can control, which gives a lovely vibe, it feels like your own home. Thirdly, our breakfast was beautiful and included a lot of choice, which was good for me as a vegetarian. We are coffee lovers and so enjoyed filter coffees in our bedroom, a delicacy and hard to find in China. We also ordered lattes from the bar which were really nice. Fourthly, the staff were always very helpful and attended to every need, they ordered us taxis without any problem. The level of English staff had was excellent and they understood everything we said, which makes things less difficult on holiday (us being from the UK). We ordered room service and the food was impeccable and was at quite a reasonable price. In essence, I would 100% recommend this hotel. I can honestly say that we will be visiting again. Beautiful for couples, families or friends visiting Shanghai. We felt that the price was very reasonable and given the centrality of the location, it is just perfect for people wanting to shop or sightsee. It is easy to get taxis and to get to the Ningjang Road for non-designer shops.

Our second trip to the hotel, once again perfect for a business trip. The hotel is in perfect position for walking the local area for the metro bars & restaurants. Very clean, white towels & sheets We found the hotel to be very quiet especially as it sits in the middle of the City Interesting decor throughout, enjoyable trip. Will return again next year

Two great restaurants if you are two tired after a long day of sight seeing to go out; comfortable rooms, and a good location to get out and walk around. It is just two blocks from a wonderful pedestrian walk way with great shopping.

The Yangtze Boutique, Shanghai was a perfectly lovely hotel. The lobby is designed to facilitate comfort for those waiting for a car, etc. The rooms are very large and beautifully decorated. The staff are extremely warm, friendly & helpful! The location is perfect for getting around Shanghai. This was one of the nicest places we have stayed...
