Loved our 6 night stay. Hotel (like its HK counterpart) differs from the usual - a little edgy in design. Staff were unfailingly helpful, special treatment for my 50th was so generous. Within walking distance to the old part of town, & Yu Gardens, Nanjing Rd and lovely to stroll the Bund. Easy taxi to French Concession etc. Only comment breakfast was always lukewarm (buffet & when ordered). Overall a wonderful experience, will definitely stay again & recommend.

Cons: Service at the bar was a little slow and we had a weird experience when coming back later when the bar was busier.
I would definitely recommend staying at here on a trip to Shanghai. Great location on the Bund, lovely views from the hotel bar. Rooms are very comfortable. Lovely bathrooms, good decor. I would stay again and recommend.

Unique Hotel with Excellent Bund Views

5 out of 5
by from Jeju Island Korea
Posted Oct 1, 2015
Pros: Excellent staff in all areas of the hotel, from front desk to the restaurant staff.
Cons: Reading/relaxing room are starting to show some wear. The massage chairs did not seem to be operating 100% anymore.
Location: Excellent location to see the historic Bund, see Yu Gardens, and eat at great restaurants close by. ( ex. Lost Heaven)
Have stayed here numerous times now. Never disappointed, excellent service in the hotel and restaurants. Views of the Bund and the Pudong side are amazing. A walk along the Bund riverfront in the early morning is a must to see all the interesting exercising and kite flying. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!

Perfect location on the Bund

Pros: Location, cleanliness.
Cons: I have nothing to offer.
Location: Yu Garden is the closest thing I am aware of, but you are directly on the river and the ferry station is nearby (just north of the hotel).
We were meeting some friends from Suzhou for the weekend and they suggested the Indigo. It was very well-kept, attentive staff, and a fantastic view of the Shanghai skyline from the west side of the river. We've never been fans of hotel restaurants, but breakfast was great - some of the best eggs benedict I've ever had. Fitness center was good for China and it overlooked the river and the skyline. We did not try the pool but it looked fine. The location is just south of the downtown ferry/MTR station, directly across the river from the Shanghai tower. Maybe a ten minute walk from Yu Garden. Staff was helpful and communicative (I am limited to English). Good value.
