The hotel is well located! Near subway, yu yuan garden (3 min walking) and the bund! Very sophisticated atmosphere and very clean! The breakfast is full of choices and fresh! Perfect experience! The mais problem is to take a taxi! It is hard since the hotel is located in a small entrance and hard to access taxis

The hotel was great. The rooms are very spacious. The morning breakfast buffet is a feast with every kind of food you could want. Servers were very friendly and accommodating. Definitely would stay there again.

Just a quick overnight stay but very relaxing . The views are amazing. Both from our room, the club lounge and the roof top bar. Food was excellent. All together a lovely stay! Definitely would go back.

This hotel is located just next to old town and metro stop. It is in walking distance to the bund, French quarter, and shopping district. I found to be in a great location for exploring Shanghai. All about 15-30 min walk. The neighborhood felt safe and I came in late at night from a day of exploring. The room was...

A very comfortable and clean hotel with friendly staff. Stayed here for 9 nights recently and had a great experience. Initially greeted with a warm welcome from the staff, my bags being whisked away to my room without me having to worry about them. Escorted to reception and greeted with a cup of green tea.

I've been in China nearly 3 weeks & this is the best hotel I've stayed in here. Every thing worked smoothly, it was walking distance from the Bund & the bars & restaurants were fine. The only downside is that the entrance faces a building site (that is not unusual in China) & it does not give the correct impression...

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the streets that serve as the border to the old city. An aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan (which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists every day, but wandering the streets around the complex reveals more exciting attractions such as food and antique markets. There are also streets lined with shops peddling everyday wares such as Chinese dining ware and craft notions that can be even more enticing to visitors uninterested in the usual tourist fare.
