Stayed three nights in the Hotel during a private trip to Shanghai. The South China Harbor is ideally located at the Bund, with some great views of Pudong. We had a nice room on floor 25. Rooms were well equipped, clean and functional. Service and interactions with the Hotel staff went flawless. Food quality in the restaurant also good. Overall... More

The hotel has an excellent location. You can walk to downtown cool. Breakfast was excellent in the higher floor of the hotel with stunning views of the river. The only comment is slower concierge service.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights during our two week trip around China. We had a pleasant stay here, although it has to be said that the front desk staff could be more polite and more efficient. POSITIVES: - large nicely decorated rooms. We asked for a city view room and we were located on the 25th floor... More

Nice location, just a few minutes walk from the bund. If you get a room on the higher floors, you'll get a very nice view. Rooms are non smoking but smell like cigarette. There is even a vase in the bedroom in which visitor put their cigarettes... Service is very poor. We had booked a double room with extra bed... More

I stayed in a refurbished room. It was spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom has a very modern style and it was very clean. There is also a swimming pool and a fitness center there. The breakfast is included and offers a good combination of western and asian types of breakfasts. The restaurant also offers a great view of Shanghai.... More

If you are visiting Shanghai this is the best place to stay. Hotel was great and very friendly in approach. The guys have got some breath taking views in most rooms and have a decent breakfast for customers. You can even hire a cycle and go around town. Just awesome!

Nice hotel but not really qualifies for 4 stars! Breakfast bouffee offers a wide range of mostly Chinese food but the popular dishes are soon finished and new plates are not always served. One hour before closing time most plates were empty :-( The wifi is free but doesn't work very well - no password needed - very unsecure! Stuff... More

Water front of the city lines with bars, restaurants on one side and the financial centre of the other. A nice stroll gives a view of all the high rise buildings of the city centre. It's lined with shopping malls and the amazing high street is a 5 mins away. Looked like the heart of the city.

Staying in Hongkou

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
