Top tips for finding the perfect Shanghai hotel

If you're planning your first visit to Shanghai, consider staying in the Huangpu district.

The Hotel Indigo Shanghai on the Bund comes with an indoor pool and promises night views of Pudong. You might also try the Riverview Hotel on the Bund, which is close to the City God Temple.
The Pudong area is home to the Shanghai Stock Exchange and Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone. The district is dominated by skyscrapers and well-known buildings like the Oriental Pearl Tower. If you're interested in exploring the financial district, consider staying at the Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai.

It’s close to People's Square and just steps from the Pedestrian Street of East Nanjing Road. You might also consider The Yangtze Boutique Shanghai, another centrally located hotel.
Many hotels in Shanghai offer airport shuttle services, however, if you need to stay by the airport, consider the 4 star Ramada Plaza Shanghai Pudong Airport or the 4-star Vienna International Hotel Shanghai Pudong Airport Free Trade Zone. Both offer airport shuttle services.
