Recently stayed for a business trip for the first time in Shanghai having stayed at various other 5 star hotels in the past when visiting. I must say the rooms are outstanding and much larger than any others I have stayed in Shanghai. The technology, decor and simply amazing view of the river and city makes this hotel my new...

There is a swimming pool policy that is is compulsory to wear a swimming cap to access the swimming pool. Personally I think it is troublesome since I do not usually wear a swimming cap during swimming. The experience was bad.

I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively and stay in some incredible properties, so my expectations are high. But when stepping into my room at Banyan Tree on The Bund in Shanghai, it took my breath away. For a city hotel, the views were EXCEPTIONAL from both the main room and the bathroom. With an oversized bath overlooking the...

I absolutely loved my recent stay with Banyan Tree Shanghai! The level of service is exceptional from our London Cab airport transfer right through to check in, incredible dining experiences and day spa treatments! Great location to experience Shanghai and everything it has to offer.

A beautiful experience. The staff are exceptional, nothing is ever too much trouble. Breakfast was outstanding - I would love to go back just for this, just so I could try everything from the huge selection. TOPS is wonderful, giving you the best views of the Shangai skyline and the Bund. The rooms can't be beat either, with all the...

It was quite a nice weather when I went to the roofbar. The view was breathtaking as always, we could see the skyscrapers clearly. The price was a little bit too pricey, but it's fine since it's a five star hotel. The drink itself just so-so, I would recommend you to go to another bar in Shanghai where you can...

My husband and I are by no means wealthy people, so when we chose this place to finish out our trip through southwest China, we did so to splurge. So, I'm not sure how it compares to other 5 star hotels. However, for us it was truly a magical experience. Our room faced the river and the Pudong financial district...

Although a short taxi ride (20-30RMB; AUD$5-6) from the main throb of 'The Bund', this hotel is a leader in its class, which is no easy task in China and well worth the experience. We have been going to Shanghai for 23-years, for business mostly, staying in 5 Star hotels and without exception this hotel is a cut above China...

Warm friendly greeting on arrival. Quickly checked in by Janet who spoke excellent English and was very helpful answering all of our questions. Fantastic 7th floor room overlooking The Bund with full facilities including a large bathroom, large desk area, lounge and sleeping areas. Spotlessly clean and modern throughout. Superb food and service. The General Manager, (Glen), took the trouble...

Staying in Hongkou

Neighbourhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
