Shanghai Hotels

Shanghai’s a thriving metropolis where East meets West and the relics of colonial China huddle below gleaming skyscrapers, glitzy malls, and swanky restaurants. Financial bigwigs take tea next to foreign tourists, while the city’s young professionals and students party all night to electro pop and hip hop. Take a stroll along the Huangpu River from the Bund – Shanghai’s colonial heart – and you’ll be faced with a vision of modern China, as soaring glass high-rises twinkle out over the river from Pudong, Shanghai’s new big business homeland.

Things to see

No trip to Shanghai’s complete without a stroll around the Bund, the city’s original financial hotspot. Soak up the vintage glamour pouring out from majestic art deco and neoclassical buildings, relics from Shanghai’s colonial heyday. Old school traditions are showcased on Nanjing Road where authentic tea houses hustle for your business among flashing neon signs. Close by, colorful statue-shrouded Jing’an Temple’s a serene spot for some reflection away from the urban hubbub. Make a beeline for Pudong Riverside Promenade’s at dusk when the balmy nighttime air has a cooling breeze from the Huangpu River and twinkly lights from Pudong’s skyscrapers reflect in the glassy waters. If you’re in need of some retail therapy, Xujiahui Shopping District’s brimming with trendsetting stores, while across the water in Pudong, the China Art Palace’s red temple-like building soars out as the city’s newest cultural hub, showcasing modern Chinese art.

Hotels in Shanghai

Shanghai’s not short of accommodation options. At the top end palatial-looking 4 and 5-star hotels draw in China’s uber rich, and are pristine places to spoil yourself. If you feel like splashing out, you’ll be treated to grand domed marble-clad lobbies, opulent suites with rooms as big as some apartments, and the softest cloud-like bedding. If your wallet doesn’t stretch to such luxuries, you can choose from one of Shanghai’s mid-range hotels, favored by business travelers and families thanks to their modest prices and wide-ranging amenities. On the lower end, 2-star guesthouses, inns, and motels offer the best discount rates.

Where to stay

Modern Shanghai’s divided in two by the Huangpu River. On one side is Shanghai proper, where many tourists stay and where most of the city’s top attractions and colonial appeal can be found. If you stay around the Bund you’ll be surrounded by historic buildings, and many hotels offer stunning river view rooms. Nanjing Road’s a buzzing neon-drenched spot with traditional tea rooms and a mishmash of stores. Close to this, Xuhui mixes European flair with modern city living in the French Concession, where colonial mansions line magnolia tree-lined boulevards brimming with pavement cafés close to thriving Xujiahui Shopping District.

How to get to Shanghai

Pudong International Airport’s a major transit hub with plenty of flights from Asia, Europe and beyond. A hi-speed Maglev train can take you from the airport to Longyang Road Station in Pudong where you can pick up the metro. Otherwise you can take the metro direct from the airport, spring for a cab or arrange a transfer with your hotel. Smaller Hongqiao International Airport serves mostly domestic routes and is linked to the city via the metro. Getting around Shanghai can be overwhelming at rush hour when workers squeeze on to the metro and buses. Avoid using this time and you should be fine.
