    Excellent, clean, friendly staff. Speaks English. Very central - good location. Very impressed

    Highly recommend this hotel. Very central - good location. Very friendly staff. Front desk staff speaks fluent English. Beautiful rooms, clean. The view is beautiful. On our next trip to Shanghai will stay back at this hotel. Have already recommended our friends to stay at this hotel.

    Location: Yu Yuan Garden - walking distance from the hotel about 10 - 15 mins walk. Good shopping. Can bargain for stores that are outside on the streets but stores inside the Yu Yuan garden normally don't bargain. Good dim sum place inside the Yu Yuan Garden.

    Great neighbourhood

    The locaion is terrific, you aee close tot he ferry that crosses the river to Pudong (2 RMV) and just a 2 block walk has you in the backstreets for shopping and great local food, we eat there evrynight. Also the Bund starts (ends) just at this hotel, so the location is terrific. The Hotel is fine, and we had a pleasant stay, the rugs and flooring are showing their age, but they are clean and it is no big deal - you will like your stay here. the buffet breakfast was so/so - the food was fine but the coffee was not - sorry need decent coffee if I am to have a decent day! Only gave them one try on this.

    Location: This neighbourhood is one of the best

    "Will be back" says U.K. traveller

    It was my pleasure to stay at the Shanghai Riverview Hotel for two weeks from 15 September 2011. My stay overall one of the best I have had in 7 visits to Shanghai in various hotels. This was my first time at this hotel but will not be the last. The room on the 17th floor was very comfortable and the bed was softer than others previously encountered. The outlook to the river was excellent but will soon disappear as the building next door, now at an early stage, will eventually block this view. Breakfast was very good and the Chinese Restaurant on the 4th floor served an excellent meal. My friends and I enjoyed dinner in a private dining room and the meal and service were of an excellent standard. Staff were friendly and helpful in every respect. The Hotel is situated at the "River Cruise embarcation" end of the Bund, a recently transformed area upgraded for the 2010 Expo. The Hotel is situated back off the road but presented no problems for taxis as previously reported. A basic shop is located in the road behind the Hotel and only 10 metres from the gate. My stay was without incident and I recommend it as a middle priced very respectable Hotel that I will return to I am sure many times over.

    Shanghai Riverview Hotel - good for the price

    This hotel was just fine for the room tariff charged. Probably 3 and 1/2 stars, reaching for 4. Quite good location, about 250m metres south of the main Bund area, and a similar distance from the closest Metro station (Xiananmen). 45+ TV stations, but only two are in English. I'd have no problem in reccomending it to others, and would certainly stay again myself.
