Disappointing stay for a so-called 5-star hotelPosted Jul 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
Broadway Mansions is located well and is in a pleasant part of Shanghai. Our executive room had an outstanding view of the Bund and the Financial District. Unparalleled to none so far that we have stayed in, in Shanghai. That's probably about all the positives we can give. THe general service in the hotel was very poor- starting from front desk to the executive lounge. The executive lounge needs a total rehaul. The breakfast restaurant was not clean with very sticky floors. The staff had dirty uniforms and looked quite shabby and generally quite disrespectful to guests. My commendations go to the very active and helpful bellhops that were attentive at every sign of our pitching up at the entrance of the hotel. Our executive room was of a good size but the services were nearly not as good as 4-star executive rooms in other hotels. I agree with what others say that this hotel does not deserve the star status it has. At best it would be a three star in my view. Had we not booked a non-refundable rate, I would have not hesitated to change my booking in good time!

Pros: On top of the bund!!!
Cons: Hallway(s) smelled of cigarettes.
Had to wait for 10 minutes at 2:15 in order to check in. Then had to wait 15 minutes more outside in the hall when I got up to the room for maid-service to finish preparing the room. The first credit card (Mastercard) I tried they were not able to take. Despite these things, a pretty good place to stay, if you don't mind the smell of stale cigar/cigarette smoke.

Amazing view of the BundPosted Jun 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
Great price, great location and great service. The rooms were very comfortable and clean, much better than expected. I have no complaints. The only advice I would give the management is to tone down the cologne scent in the lobby. It's too strong and deters the purpose of a good scent. Try a different scent that is softer

Great locationPosted May 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet had lots of variety (western and eastern styles).

Classic ShanghaiPosted May 27, 2014
Pros: Location; British Bar (great service); Room, bed and bathroom are outstanding.
Cons: Not sure I would pay the extra $$ to stay in an executive room.
Location: For some great food and drink nearby, go left out of the entrance and then a left on Daming Rd. where you'll find Bund 30 Bar and many other places.
Just got back from China and this place is great. My second time staying there. It is not a modern, western hotel and that's part of its charm. The rooms are wonderful. Very clean, large, with modern amenities. Breakfast is excellent with great views. And the "British Bar" is a great place for a drink - outstanding service and friendly servers. Location is outstanding. Great value - this place is priced wonderfully.

Art Deco monster -Posted Apr 30, 2014
Pros: see above
Cons: reception was slow
Location: excellent central location
I first stayed in thjis hotel forty years ago at the end of the Cultural Revolution. This was before it was 'modernised' - a pity all the old furniture and panelling was ripped out as it would have been a stunning attraction if this had remained in place. The hotel is very convenient and in an exciting position. For this reason would recommend it still.

Broadway Mansions Hotel Shanghai.Posted Apr 30, 2014
Excellent hotel overlooking the Bund. Recommend a high up river view room to obtain the best view of the area. Staff were efficient and very helpful. Coffee expensive at $13 a cup in the lounge area but coffee expensive anywhere in China. Well located and easy to obtain taxis to get around. Highly recommended.
