Great place to stay, off the beaten path
Posted May 1, 2016
I was very pleased with my stay at Sunrise on the Bund. It's a little off the beaten path, but it's close to many things to do in Puxi, either by taxi, or by Metro (Tilanquiao station, about two blocks away). My room was very compact, but very comfortable for a single traveler. Might be a little tight for a couple. My view included the Pearl Tower.
The neighborhood is Hongkou, and has an interesting as the Jewish section of town in the years leading up to WWII, and after Pearl Harbor, the area became the Jewish ghetto.
Definitely a great room for the price. Excellent workout facility. I didn't use the pool -- they require a swimming cap, which is a little odd for a guy with a shaved head. The breakfast buffet is quite good, though like most of these, it's a bit pricey, but still worth the convenience.
