Editorial review:

This grand old hotel dates back to 1846 and was the first hotel built in Shanghai. It was frequented by such names as Albert Einstein and Charlie Chaplin. If you want a room that famous people stayed in, they cost Y1580. There are high ceilings, snaking corridors, and wooden floorboards throughout, giving it a somewhat cold and strict feel. The rooms are gigantic, internet can be accessed in the business center, and the male staff wears spats, kilts, and black tailcoats.

Verified Reviews:

  • Massive bed - No view - Wonderful breakfast room - Breakfast a bit average
  • Very affordable price - No elevators - Free wi-fi in lobby - Free shuttle - Laundry service
  • Excellent location - Rooms are impeccably decorated - Beauty salon - Currency exchange
  • Service is excellent - Friendly staff - Spa that is attached - Highly recommended
  • Great hotel - At the end of the bund - Room is spacious - Bathrooms clean

    Hotel location is good. Central and in proximity of major spots. Well trained staff.

    The best thing of the Astor hotel is its original and exclusive style which points to the Shanghai of the 19th century. It gives a good impression of the Shanghai of the 19th century and shows how luxury hotels looked like at that time. Since it has been refurbished recently, room and bathroom was in a very good condition. The location is excellent, just a few meters away from the famous Bund.

    Hotel with historical character and modern facilities.

    Minor dislike. Double glazing would have helped to eliminate traffic noise, but probably would not fit with the historical aspect of the hotel. Long way from nearest Metro station.

    perfect location, beatifull old building with history, nice for architecture lovers

    everything inside is old, smelly and under expectations, hotel need general refurbishing, breakfast room with unpleasant smell

    The room was quite and peaceful. The history of the building was very interesting - it was cool to stay in a relic of Shanghai.

    The Internet in the room was expensive when compared to other hotels. They did offer free wifi in the bar, however this was quite slow.

    This is reputably the oldest hotel in Shanghai and it has loads of character. The location is excellent. We were offered an upgrade to a Queen suite (extra 400 RMB per night) which we accepted, but the deluxe twin room would have fine. We enjoyed the extra luxury (and view of Garden Bridge) from our room.

    Excellent! Really old hotel, like staying in a museum. Rooms are super large. Got upgraded to the suite, what a luxury! Great, don't miss out on this hotel!

    It's a beautiful hotel the breakfast is amazing, the staff is very very good

    When we arrived at 3pm our room was not ready yet. They give us after 1h a room at 4 th floor but we the paint smell was terrible so we asked to change (they are renovating the 4 th floor). At the end we changed 3 rooms for 3 nights ...

  • Group of friends

    The door staff was fantastic. They often seemed to care about our trip more than we did. Truly the best I've ever had.

    The desk staff was not better than adequate. They were unable to answer some questions that we considered basic, and were not able to make any recommendations regarding where to go or what to do. Also, our room was not ready when we arrived. It was no trouble for us, but I could see how it might trouble some.

  • Couple

    The authenticity of the place

    As it is an old building, the sound isolation is a bit poor...you can hear the neighbours walking in the room above you...

    this was home away from home absolutely full marks

    not even de tiniest flaw.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    We first stayed at the Astor House in late May at the start of a nine week trip around China. We enjoyed our first stay and had looked forward to returning to the hotel in late July. We were delighted to be back at the hotel as the standard of service is excellent. We would highly recommend the hotel as it is located right at the northern end of the Bund. The hotel is a classic traditional hotel around 100 years old. The standard in our room was very good. The service by the staff is also very good.
