"Shanghai's first ever Western hotel, built in 1846, the Astor House looks a lot sorrier than the days when Einstein and Charlie Chaplin stayed here." Full review

"Dating back to 1846, this is a pleasingly old-fashioned place with creaky wooden floors and high ceilings, and the antiquated look of a Victorian school."

"Opened in 2005, Shanghai's second Radisson hotel is a five-star outfit, but its service falls a little short of the service at top hotels in this category, such as the Westin and the JW Marriott." Full review

"Though the hotel caters primarily to business travelers, the suites—with huge living rooms, kitchen/dining rooms, and spacious baths—are convenient for families." Full review

"This hotel's trump card is its location. Handily situated on Nanjing Xi Lu, bang next to People's Square, it's a mere step away from the metro and a vast array of shops." Full review
Rough Guide Rough Guide
"A new and swish venue that has quickly become popular, offering a convenient location right at the corner of bustling Nanjing Lu, and, in general, a slick upscale experience."

"Classic elegance? No way, but the perch just north of People's Park is a highly prized plot."
