Lonely Planet review
Stuffed with history (and perhaps a ghost or two), this august old-timer shakes up an impressive cocktail from select ingredients: a location just off the Bund; old-world, Shànghǎi-era charm; great discounts; and colossal rooms. The original polished wooden floorboards, corridors and galleries pitch the mood somewhere between British public school and Victorian asylum.
There’s enough wood panelling to build an ark; you could shunt a bed into the capacious bathrooms; and some of the rooms on the higher floors have river views. Pop up the stairs and hang a left to a small museum along the corridor to explore the history of the hotel. Discounts of 40% are common.
Our independent authors have visited Astor House Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Pǔdōng & Century Avenue Area.
