Not sure how it’s 5*
Reviewed 7 days ago

We booked this hotel as it was rated 5* and has positive reviews along with good location and the rooms looked like they were nice. Upon arrival it seems the only thing that was accurate about the hotel was the location being good. We walked in to the room and the heating was on at 25 degrees. Trying to turn on the A/C we found there wasn’t any after reception advised they controlled it for all rooms. We had to sleep with the windows open which then caused us to be bitten at night. We tried to use the concierge service a few times without luck due to the poor English spoken. I asked for a table to be booked at a restaurant and gave the address on the phone. The concierge then decided he needed to come to my room 4 times and then finally was unable to book as he couldn’t find it. The tv stopped working part way through our stay, not the end of the world as we weren’t in room much but it’s basic. The wardrobe door was hanging off the hinges. The shower door didn’t shut so every time you showered there was a leak on floor. The best thing about hotel was the cleaning staff. Every morning they would clean our room and change our sheets, only feedback would be they come too early, around 8am. Do not be deceived by the photos as all is not as it seems. This is probably a 3/4* in reality and you are better off spending slightly more and going else where!

Location is fantastic, very close the the metro - just make sure you check the exit you need to use! The rooms are unique and lovely. Service is great. Even though it's very central it was extremely quiet in the rooms. Beds are very comfortable and pillows are nice and soft. Would recommend.

Poor restaurant service
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed one night and it was very pleasant after Chinese rural hotels. The place had a lot of character and did not feel like a modern box. The front desk staff spoke good English and were very helpful directing us where to walk to see the sights - as many other reviewers have noted it is excellently located within walking distance of the Bund, the shopping area ad many restaurants.
Our room was large and very comfortable with safe, kettle and other comforts. The bathroom was large and pleasant with lots of soft towels.
Our only complaint is about the restaurant service. There were only two other families in the dining room (probably because it was so expensive) and there were plenty of waiters around. However the waiters all stayed in a backroom area chatting to each other and did not come to check on the diners. I had to get up and go and search for a waiter to serve us.

My husband and I spent 4 nights at The Yangtze Boutique Shanghai. The staff were friendly. Our room on Level 7 was quiet (no street noise at all), very spacious and clean and the bathroom had a great shower with a separate bath (with its own TV!!). The king-size bed was very comfortable. Our room looked out towards People’s Park. By far the best thing was the location of the hotel which was less than 50 m from People’s Square metro station (take Exit 14). The hotel was also extremely close to East Nanjing Road and about 20 mins to walk to the Bund. We would highly recommend this hotel.
