Manhattan Bund Business Hotel

Reviewed 19 October 2013

We stayed in Sep 2013 in this Hotel & it was really very disappointing to see their rooms, we had booked a superior room with window, but no window was there, only 1 frosted glass was there behinh the bed & that too covered, so no use to purchase superior room & on top of that A.C was not at all good & they were not even cooperative to provide us with standing fan & when we complained again & again, they told us to take the fan from the reception, since they didn't have staff.
I would personally do not recommend to book this hote.

I stayed at deluxe room with window. The room is good but air condition doesn't cold. The temperature outside was better. The location of this hotel is good for walking to the Bund and Nanjing road. Near hotel has convenient stores and some of restaurants. Anyway it's difficult to find a taxi in this area. Talking about service, I felt very disappointed with service here. The staff is unhelpful.

Stayed in the suite of this hotel for 6 nights during my 1 week visit to Shanghai and nearby cities. As the title says, this is basically an average hotel.

Upside:
- The only plus point of this hotel is the location. It's located just 3 mins walk to The Bund, 5 mins walk to the nearest entrance of East Nanjing Road subway station (Line 10 - Exit 6). <10 mins walk to East Nanjing Road. YuYuan Gardens & Bazaar are also close by and easily accessible by subway or even by walking (~25 mins walk).

Downside:
- The breakfast is just average with limited choices and barely rotates.
- The room has a little wet stench as soon as you enter and the wall has some mold stains (which should be contributed by the humidity in the room)
- Staffs weren't very friendly and not putting up smiling faces
- Wifi weren't always accessible and available in room even though it says fully covered for the entire hotel.

Neutral:
- Offers free rental for bicycles for 1st 2 hours (did not try this, hence cannot comment too much).
- Since it's a boutique hotel, the decoration brings back the feeling of the old Shanghai but it's not essential part of the stay.
- The room and hotel area are generally clean but since it's an old boutique hotel, you will expect certain places to be slightly dirtier.

The best thing about this hotel is its location, directly on the Bund downtown and very close to the main Nanjing road. Especially for the rate paid, it's hard to find something similar with this location.

Of course, it is not a fancy hotel. The rooms are very basic with no windows and a small bathroom but if you are in Shanghai, you are hardly spending any time in your hotel room anyway.

The decor of the hotel is pretty nice, like art decor style with nice old pictures.

The service from the bellboys was friendly and helpful. The check in/out was just so so but I have experienced friendliness is a problem in Shanghai hotels in general.

If you look for a budget hotel in the center, a very good choice!

Manhanttan Bund Hotel is recommended for a short functional night stay. Located near to the bund and surrounding food stalls, it is around 10 mins walk to the nearest MRT Station.

Rooms, however, were designed in an off shape - circular beds with a mirror directly above the bed (which makes the property seem a tad dubious). The wifi signal wasn't too strong in certain areas of the room though.

Nonetheless, if you are looking for a functional hotel, this is it.
