Jǐnjiāng Metropolo Hotel

Historic hotel in The Bund & People's Square

This magnificent art deco building has been home to a hotel since 1934 and was first established as the Metropole Hotel, owned by the famed Victor Sassoon. While its standards have slipped markedly, it was undergoing a total renovation in 2016 that will hopefully restore some of its former splendour. It overlooks an intersection with similarly imposing grand architecture.
