What I liked:

I like staying in boutique hotels and the history and charm of this hotel delivers. The rooms have that grandness of a by gone era with all the modern amenities. The spa is world class; get the Thai massage, fantastic. The location is perfect for seeing Shanghai. As a business travel who spends a lot of time traveling this was a welcome respite from the homogenized world of big chain hotels.

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay!

16 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

The sheer sensory overload of all Shanghai’s new construction is an attraction, of a sort, but too often lost among the cranes is a recognition that it’s not just economics and demographics that make this city special. No visit to Shanghai is complete without at least a touch of the history of the place, and the Yangtze Boutique Shanghai, a contemporary reinvention of an original 1930s Art Deco hotel, provides more than just a touch.

For starters, the building itself is something of a marvel, a reminder that Art Deco is about a lot more than just black and white tile. The rooms and suites are large enough, and the vintage floor plan means there’s some variety in the layouts. What they might lack in sheer square footage and high-tech extravagance they more than make up for in character and elegance.

Three restaurants serve upscale and inventive Italian, Japanese and Cantonese fare. Meanwhile a full-service spa ensures that all your other corporeal needs are well taken care of. Visitors accustomed to luxury hotels in Hong Kong, Tokyo or Taipei can sometimes find Shanghai’s manner a little brusque, but the Yangtze Boutique Shanghai, in keeping with its Thirties heritage, is reliably smooth as silk.

Travel advisory: Passport and visa requirements differ from country to country. Please check with your local authority before booking.
