Profile: Huangpu

Profile: Huangpu

Huangpu - The Bund is a prime sightseeing area about 5 km east of downtown Shanghai, and features iconic attractions such as the Old City, Shanghai’s ancient walled quarter, which is crammed with picturesque historic buildings and pretty traditional gardens.

The Bund itself is a stunning promenade along the west bank of the Huangpu River, which provides visitors with a potted visual history of Shanghai’s rise in prominence in the form of the buildings which line the waterfront. It’s one of the city’s most photogenic areas, especially when it’s illuminated at night, so have your camera at the ready.

  • 8,0.Very good

    I booked a room for 5 nights at this hotel. When we arrived at the hotel we were told that the reservation was canceled via the site and we could not give you room. After 30 minutes we were finally able to book a room. The hotel building was old. Our room was on the 14th floor and we had trouble using the elevator because it was too old. The hotel staff were not friendly.the Safe was broken. Breakfast could not be eaten. But the room was very comfortable and large and clean. The view of the room was very beautiful. The city is spectacular.The hotel location is good. about 20 minutes away from the People square and 5 minutes away from Laoximen metro station (line 8).

    Great location and friendly staff. Breakfast is very good. Amenities need to be refurbished. It’s an older hotel. Would rate this hotel a 3.5 star hotel at best.

    Adequate hotle would be an exaggeration

    This place was terrible, seriously, it is so bad thinking about it 3 days after I checked out still makes me cringe, I'm so glad it's over. The most unfriendly staff you'll ever come across. Out of the roughly 30 times I walked in and out I was greeted once, I tried making a call back home on my room phone, followed the instructions to the letter, couldn't get through, asked receptionist, shrugged her shoulders, not her problem. No WiFi, told the receptionist, shrugged her shoulders, not her problem. Free breakfast? No thanks, I'd rather starve. Seriously I'm a frequent traveller, I've stayed in over 200 hotels in the last 5 years and this wins hands down worst hotel I've ever stayed at award. Do yourself a favour and find somewhere else. I wouldn't stay here again if they paid me.

    Unpleasant stay

    Bad experience, the receptionist that is wearing spectacle should not be a receptionist! Rude and cold. Luckily the security guy have a pleasant personality and was very helpful. Room is dirty, bed is extremely hard, my wife is getting lice on her hair, yucckk!! Breakfast could be better. The only savior of this hotel is its location and the nice security guard.

    Central location

    Room was ok, breakfast underwhelming, the room was comfortable but the bathroom could use some work. Near tourists spots and an easy didi ride to the club areas.
