“Best buffet lunch in Shanghai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2011

Didn't actually stay there, but taken there for the buffet lunch. It has to be one of the longest, if not the longest lines of food available at a hotel buffet in Shanghai, and I've eaten many hotel buffets in my time. There was food from all over the world, including Japan, Korea, Italy (pasta) and of course the local Shanghai cuisine, with the mandatory xiao long bao. Make sure you have plenty of time to take it all in, and not be in a rush to eat the food.
No actually on the Bund, but about a 5 minute walk north of it; so on a fine day, take the after lunch walk to the Bund.

This is one of the most impressive locations for a Hyatt. Right opposite the Pearl of Orient, gorgeous view of the Pudong side of Shanghai. Within a couple of minutes to stroll along the Bund. The breakfast buffet and lunch buffet are amongst the best you will find in any hotel, just short maybe of the one at the Four Seasons in Singapore. The rooms are spacious, with modern decor. Perfect for the business traveller. And my favorite: drinks at the bar on the 34th floor, with view of the night life.

Very good hotel with great views. Ask for a room with a view of the Huangpu River. Its worth it. Even if you do no stay at the hotel, Vue-bar is a must see as I think it has the best view in the city.

I want to write a review on their Vue-Bar. The view from this bar is nice, that is true. I live in Shanghai so did not stay in the hotel. I went there after a dinner with my husband to have a glass of champaign together. We had to pay an entrance fee to go into the bar. I do not mind this because it is very common in Shanghai.
But, although the place was not crowded at all (it was on a weekday) we could not sit at a table in the bar unless we paid 200 euro!!!!! (sitting fee). I discussed with the manager and said I just wanted to sit there the time we drank a glass of champaign but that I would not pay 200 euro for 2 glasses, certainly because we already paid entrance fee. So we left the bar without drinking anything. They spoiled our night. I will not go there back again.

We had a wonderful stay at the Hyatt Pudong, a great place to stay. We had a superb river view room. The breakfastbuffet is delicious as is the Spa. Service second to none, especially compared to some same type of hotels in other parts of China.
As we like to dine out (so many places near The Bund to have awesome food) we didn’t try the restaurants for lunch or dinner. It is wonderful to stroll from the hotel to the Bund. By the way: we had a lunch with breathtaking view at the Park Hyatt at the other side of the river.
