I booked a room (at extra cost) that was described as having a window. When I checked into my room the "window" was glazed over and sealed shut. It didn't even look like a window; it looked like a large yellow glazed glass and all that was discernible through it was if it was day or night. I went down to the front desk and asked if I could have a room with a "real" window and I was politely told that because the building is 100 years old, and re-purposed as a hotel, all the "windows" looked onto the lobby and were therefore replaced with a sheet of glazed glass and there were no rooms with what anyone would consider a window. There was a typhoon coming and I wasn't going to be stuck in that room, so I checked out the next day and checked into another hotel. For about $10 more a night I have a room that is 5x larger, has a king sized bed, and it has a giant window with a gorgeous view of the Bund. The rooms at the Manhattan Bund Business are tiny and the bathrooms are evens smaller. The location is good as is the buffet breakfast which was included in my price. Front desk staff are nice enough,and didn't give me a hard time about leaving, but I would never go back. Even if I don't have a view, I have to, at least, be able to see what the weather is doing. In addition, the wifi is iffy and the plugs are not international.
