“A Unique and Inspiring Shanghai Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

One of my best hotel experiences ever. Located right on the river and south end of the historic bund. The Indigo impresses immediately on arrival with its amazing lobby. Service is great. The rooms are spacious and well designed - modern funky chic with old shanghai touches. Everywhere we went had and amazing view (could possibly be the best gym view ever!) a great stay and the only way to let people know is to get on TA and say .. Thank you Indigo.

Everyone else ... You must stay here!

Having just had my 2nd sty at this hotel, it has got better. The welcome note and treat recognising that I am a repeat customer speaks well for their systems and processes. I love the modern/ antique (contradiction I know, but it works) decor of the rooms. The Quay bar on the 30th floor was open this time. It has a huge outdoor deck with spectacular views up the bund of both Pudong and old Shanghai.
The staff are young and enthusiastic. The food (breakfast and bar) is excellent (albiet a little slow in delivery) and different to the standard hotel fair.
Would I stay here again, absolutely.

Hi Peterm2911,

we loved this review..........a second time reviewer with such positive feedback is very special. Thank you !
The "young and enthusiastic staff" had your comments read to them in our team meeting.
your note about food delivery being a little slow has been discussed. Our full a la carte breakfast menu means every dish is cooked to order (no hot buffet) but we will endeavour to speed things up.

Neighbourhood regards from the Bund in Shanghai
Bruce and team.

Indigo is a great hotel with top notch service to match.
Great location on the Bund and the facilities are great.

A bit far from Subway but you can get by Taxi.
Try the Char restaurant and the Bar on the top floor for the best view on the Bund.
Try an evening walk alongside the Bund and you'll agree why this is one of the best hotels in Shanghai. We think this is the best.

We love this hotel and will recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: Riverview is the best.

The hotel has a great feel to it, very intimate and personable, the restaurants are rarely overcrowded and the service is impeccable. We had a suite overlooking the river and watching the abundant river traffic was fascinating, the suite itself was also wonderful. The old town is within walking distance and the hotel is right on the bund, so walking is a good option.
We were there in march and it was very cold and I was totally ill equipped for this so it it took a little shine off the visit, however this is nobody's fault but mine.

Room Tip: the suites are excellent
