    Superb

    It was a very impressive hotel and I felt very comfortable. I'll definitely return.

    The light above the wash basin wasn't bright enough when looking into the mirror. It needs to be much stronger so that the person can see their face clearly when putting make up on or for a guy who shaves.

    Superb

    It was fine, cozy rooms, spacious and clean.

    I's not really a 5 stars hotel I did not felt the luxury and opulence specific to these locations.

    Clean rooms

    We arrived late, but we send message with information that our plane will be late. The stuff man was very very angry and spoke with us very very bad. They charged our money 2 times, because they could not understand that we have done prepayment already. We have to wait for 3 hours , we showed payment detals and called to europe to bank manager wich approved our payment, and still have to pay second time for the room. The room reservation was done 1 month before arrival and nobody has checked if everythig is okey. If you are not stupid never take this hotel. Stuff is not speaking english. Luggage guy was not satisfied that he has't recieved 20 $ reward for taking luggage. Sound isolation is bad. And it is not 5 star hotel as claimed. Bad situation with food.

    Location should be good in general, but right now there's a big construction right under the windows and the noise is terrible every day from 8.00. Staff is professional, speaks good english, but behaves a bit arrogant.

    Once checking in to the hotel, everything is above my expectation, it's a wonderful hotel.

    Having question related to the reservation, call the hotel, the staff refuse to help, keep referring back to Booked.net, it's pretty frustrating.

    Beautiful views of the Bund and the Huangpu Riverview Friendly staff, nice comfortable rooms, central location Riverview hotel may not be 5 star hotel, but if I came back to Shanghai again, I'll stay in this hotel. Everything from the moment of arrival at the hotel functioned as it should be. The hotel staff speaks English and they gave me the room I was looking at booking time. The room was on floor 19, with a beautiful view of the River and the bund, especially in the evening when the lights began dancing at the bund, construction work on the structure are quite low and did not disturb me at all.

    The only drawback is that the nearest metro station you have to walk 15- 20 min to laoximen illi yuyuan garden ( line 10)

    It's location to the old town shopping area. Also the Bund was only a 30 minute walk along the riverside.

    No bar

    The staff were good. Decent grasp of English

    The noise.... Easily the noisiest hotel that I have ever stayed in. The hotel should make the most of it's name because soon it will be the towerview hotel. There are huge building sites on both sides of the hotel and being China, work goes on until 11pm and starts again at 7am. Not very relaxing. And the bed. I like a firm mattress, but this was hard. Cave floor type hard. At one point I got out of bed and lay on the carpetted floor. Only marginally less comfortable than the bed. Check in was also very slow.

    Good

    Location within walking distance to the Bund.

    The concierge staff could do better with basic English skills and knowledge on tourist attractions. They cannot be of much help if you don't speak Mandarin it seems.

    Good

    Gorgeous river views, overall nice hotel. A piece of the "old" Shanghai nearby, a gorgeous market and some pretty gardens and parks one can visit. It is close to Hotel Indigo which sports a gorgeous bar on the top floor with great cocktails and most awesome views of the nightly lit Shanghai. Staff will be able to provide with maps and / or information about how to best get around.

    Now, the location is not ideal. It is relatively far from the central attractions and relatively far from any subway station. There is a massive construction site nearby which means that the actual "riverviews" will be blocked off soon as another massive hotel/building complex is being build right in front of it. The beds are very very hard. The hardest I ever have slept on so be prepared. Just a few details, not directly related to hotel: I took a taxi from the airport to get there. I was told it should be around 170 Y, ended up paying 300. >>> I highly recommend to every visitor to print out the hotel name in Chinese characters. No TAXI driver will be able to read Latin characters.<<<

    Very good

    communication in english without any problems, friendly and helpful associates, good breakfast, rooms with a good riverview, clean rooms

    the billiard ha only open from 7am to 7pm, but in the room information there has been written from 10am to 10pm- that's confusing

    The price, 500rmb included vat is reall cheap

    - No taxy drivers know this hotel, finally everytime i've teached them about the location - staff speack really poor english - bathroom really cheap - il letto era duro come un pezzo di legno!!!!

  • 6.2
    Good

    Room condition is really cozy and clean. And staff can speak english but not so good. Yui-yoen is very close, so we can walk to the spot.

    The extra bed is really terrible. Springs are appeared so I can't lie on the bed. But single bed is not bad. And location is far away from subway station. We had to use taxi every time. It may take 15 ~20 minutes to the nearest subway station. And there's a construction place besides this hotel.

    Superb

    Clean and Perfect location; Family suite is big enough for four adults. It has two queen size beds and a extra small bed. Although the extra one is not very good for sleep. But it worth for this price.

    There's some construction nearby. Kinda noisy in the morning.

    The room was quite clean and nice view

    The reception was very slow in checking in and out , and for a five star Hotel who does not have Wi-Fi is realy bad. Hotel is located at the back of another building most of th taxi cannot find or don't even know how to go the hotel ,
