Nice hotel close to the Huangpu river, just 100 meters away from the famous Bund and the sightseeing spots. Walking distance from the old neighbourds and markets full of tourists. Breakfast is ok, a lot of Chinese type of foods with some western standard items. Rooms comfortable and cozy,but our view was not the best. Very good value for money.

Hotel is tired Old Prostitute hotel Don't go there Lobby is nice but lights turn off at night. No staff. Front desk staff terrible Not inviting Possibly a long time ago 30-50 years it was good but now needs a total renovation and new management Alternative is to renovate it and make it serviced apartments I would never stay there

Good location, nice staff, great choice of breakfast. rooms are a bit dated but very clean with lots of amenities. The bund is in walking distance. We stay hear to attend meeting nearby the hotel, so did not notice how far is the metro station. It is a good hotel with reasonable price and comfortable.

We booked 2 rooms and phoned hotel (as they didn't respond to question via booking.com) to check that the rooms would have an internal connecting door as we have 2 young children. We were assured this was the case. But when we checked in this wasn't the case and they had no rooms like this.

I've enjoyed staying at the Riverview. The rooms are a good size and are very clean and well maintained. The only slight downside is that it's a good walk to the underground and taxis are sometimes hard to get. For the price the hotel is great value.

We stayed 2 nights here. A good location to the water front but not much of a river view. Most rooms had none. English was not widely spoken with hotel staff, so be ready for some frustrations. They were difficult at times. We arrived after a 12 and half our flight. Got to the hotel by 8.50. Would not let...

Great and spacious rooms, modern and well designed. Breakfast is good if you do not leave it too late. When mouse droppings were spotted in the cereal the waiter just shrugged his shoulders. On checkout I arranged for a complimentary room to change before going to the airport. When the time came no room was available and the manager told...

I got a really great deal on booking.com for a few nights here. I chose it because of the location, close to the Bund as well as the price. The hotel itself was as expected for the price, a little dated, a little out of fashion but all in all not a bad stay. It was comfortable, it had everything...

We ended up with a larger room than normal. Good location, close to bund and river boats. English was fine Breakfast not worth paying extra for. It was included for us, but would have walked to Starbucks instead of paying for breakfast Beds to too hard for my taste

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.
