Hotels in Shanghai

With a population approaching 25 million people, Shanghai is China’s largest city. It’s also a global financial center and – thanks to its 1.5-sqare mile deep-sea and river ports – the city that ships more container cargo than any other in the world. To visitors, modern Shanghai is a fast-paced blend of soaring skyscrapers, ultra-luxury retailers and an of-the-moment nightlife scene. But with a closer look, Shanghai’s colonial history is revealed in its shaded lanes of quaint cottages and broad avenues of elaborate European mansions.

Shanghai: Where Old Meets New

Architecture buffs flock to Shanghai for a glimpse of its three tallest buildings, the pagoda-influenced Jin Mao, the bottle opener-inspired Shanghai World Financial Center and the cloud-piercing Shanghai Tower. Closer to Earth is the waterfront Bund, a curving promenade where Colonial Shanghai is on full display in 51 distinct architectural styles. When mingling with 25 million people becomes too much, the Old City’s Yu Garden is a peaceful refuge with 5 acres of pools, pavilions, pagodas, bridges and exquisite small-scale sculptures.

How Much Do Hotels in Shanghai Cost?

Like so much of Shanghai life, hotel pricing is a study in contrasts. At the low end, think $30 per night for a room for 2 at Shanghai Han Ting Hotel, with complimentary Wi-Fi. For well-heeled groups, an overnight stay in a multi-bedroom garden villa at the Sinan Mansions in downtown Shanghai runs $4,900, with breakfast included.

Does Shanghai Have Chain Hotels?

Shanghai’s Chinese hotel chains include Home Inns, with nearly 65 hotels priced from $22 to $252 per night spread over the city and 9 of its districts. Jinjiang International operates 51 2- and 3-star Jinjiang Inns with nightly rates between $22 and $112. Holiday Inn, Crown Plaza and Radisson Blu have another 16 hotels priced between $81 and $566 nightly.

Can I Find a Hotel Near the Bund?

Absolutely. A waterfront location slightly north of Huangpu gives the Bund a fairly central location, as its numerous hotels suggest. At the budget-friendly Rayfont South Bund Hotel Shanghai, nightly rates for two people begin at $57. The 5-star Les Suites Orient, Bund Shanghai sits just a 9-minute taxi ride from the Yu Garden/ Guest rooms feature LCD TVs and free Wi-Fi. Nightly rates begin at $316, with breakfast included.
