This hotel is an amazing piece of Shanghai history. It is right next to Holy Trinity Church - recently restored. It was known as the Red Cathedral in 'Empire of the Sun'. The hotel was the Bishops home and next to it is the old Boys School closed when the Japanese invaded. You are visiting a living piece of Shanghai history which takes you back to the 1920s. As such it's really amazing. But if you want lifts, large buffets, 21st century convenience - don't go. This is a peaceful 1920s large house - it won't have lifts or full Wi-fi but what it offers is so much more. It's the passport to a lost world right next to the Bund and if this fascinated you, watch the film Empire of the Sun or read the book - the church is recently restored and beautiful following its desecration during the cultural revolution. You won't find anywhere else like it.... I always visit when I go to Shanghai and in the midst of a modern city it's a reminder of a rich past when Shanghai was split into international zones and the British held sway and recreated parts of home in far flung lands. You go to your room via a grand staircase, the downstairs rooms are evocations of a past age and bedrooms tastefully decorated in antique style. It feels like a large home and a million miles away from the large hotels all around you. It's a priceless experience and the comments on the hotel are more likely to reflect the levels of cultural appreciation of those who make the comments rather than the actual facts. This place is priceless....

We stayed at the BGH for the night of a wedding we were attending at the hotel.

The hotel is a converted house and is very small with only 9 rooms and there doesn't seem to be a restaurant or bar area so your room is all you have. Breakfast is served in your room and although we didn't have it our friends said theirs was excellent.

Rooms are comfortable without being lavish - they either seem to be in the middle of a renovation or there was one some time ago. Bathrooms are clean and nicely tiled in an old style.

We wouldn't stay there again given the vast choice of hotels in Shanghai but the stay was plesant enough.

First time I stayed here – some 8 years ago – I thought there was something really wrong before arriving, because the combination of pictures of the building, of the rooms, the location and the price didn’t make sense. But it wasn’t a lie.

It was – and is – possible to stay in a quite exclusive villa hotel in the heart of Shanghai and close to The Bund at an affordable price.

I might be less impressed 8 years and 4 stays later, as nothing has happened since and the carpets looks a little tired and the flat screens, that looked enormous in 2007, doesn’t anymore. But I still love this homely feeling and prefer it for the five star sleeping factories (with more professional service) around the corner. That’s why I give it top rating, even though it technically might be only 4.

The heritage villa (which indeed has a garden - where a 35-storey hotel easily could be build) has just nine rooms, all different. Three levels, the lowest is absolutely fine, but the second level makes it absolutely more magnificent. All rooms (and the foyer) look like an English mansion. In detail, you can see, it is a copy.

There is no a la carte restaurant, not even for breakfast, so breakfast (multiple choice the evening before) is served in the room. The focus of the establishment is the business lunches and weddings (Chinese customers only), which seems to be 95 % of their business.

Wifi is free but was this time mostly slow. Not sure if it was the connection to outside China or just internally at the hotel.

Service and attitude is so-so. English is spoken, but not at an impressive level. Depends on the guy on duty, of course. Check in/out can be a bit slow.

But they can perform. The last morning I was very late for my flight, and asked for a taxe.

Now it is rush hour. Impossible’. At the same time, the concierge in a very reproachfully tone told me - several times - that I should have ordered the evening before. They have (automated?) telephone system for ordering taxis, which worked fine other times. But he put the guard and a service woman out on the street to catch a taxi. They succeeded and I reached my plane.

And I really love the location. Five minutes’ walk to The Bund and all the expat restaurants there. And the very useful Metro 2 (and 10) is just 400 meters away.

The list price is ridiculous (I saw it once a few years ago), but online prices are almost a bargain. The hotel seems not to have its own website, and I twice tried to reserve by writing to the two email-addresses I had, but never got an answer. Just use hotel booking-sites. Works fine.

When we arrived the receptionist could not find our booking. It was midnight and we were tired after the long journey from the UK. This was our first visit to Shanghai. The receptionist eventually found our booking after about half an hour. No apology was offered. He then showed us to our room up a flight of stairs and no offer to help us with our luggage. The room was dull and shabby and in need of redecoration. The bathroom floor was heavily stained and shabby. There was a kettle and coffee sachets but no cups so my wife went back to the reception (no reply on phone) to ask for two cups. The receptionist refused to give her cups telling her to use the glass tumblers in the room. The following morning we complained to another receptionist who did provide cups which were in a room just next to the reception. The staff were so unfriendly we decided not to dine there and to spend as little time as possible in the hotel. That evening on our return we said "good evening" in English and Mandarin to the male receptionist (different from previous receptionists) who totally ignored us. He was sitting at the reception desk and did not even bother to look up at us. The people who run this hotel have an attitude of total indifference. Fortunately we were only staying for two nights. You should avoid this place. There are plenty other decent hotels in Shanghai.

Great location, charming old building and comfortable rooms. Unfortunately that counts for very little when levels of customer service are so lacking as they are in this small 9 bedroom hotel. Maybe the manager or staff have changed since other more positive reviews were written, because we found the key hotel staff to be unwelcoming and unhelpful. Unwelcoming: We arrived early at about 9am (that's not uncommon) and we were already expecting to wander around the area until our room was ready. But on arrival we were greeted with a few cold and curt statements indicating we could not check in (we hadn't asked to). It was not a great way to start our stay. Unhelpful1: Booking a taxi to the airport should be an easy enough thing to do, but we got the impression that this would really put the manager (head receptionist?) to unwanted bother. He called - grudgingly - and the taxi was confirmed for 7am (it did actually arrived as agreed). We had had some significant language problems ordering the taxi (solved by drawing pictures of planes and taxis), but that is to be expected because none of the staff have anything more than very very basic English. That's not unexpected in Shanghai, but the hotel should do more to help non-Mandarin speakers. Unhelpful2: A hotel where almost no English is spoken by staff should try to ensure that plenty of written guest information is available. This wasn't the case here - there was very little. Not even a local street map was offered - we had to ask. The street map provided was tiny and useless in practice. The result of this lack of guest information in English, for example, was that simple things like asking for and ordering breakfast was a tiresome struggle. So, back to our departure. We had to leave by taxi at 7am and breakfast starts at 7am. "Could we have, say, just coffee at, say, 6.45am" we asked (well, breakfast was included). "No, sorry, not possible" came the stuttering reply, "breakfast is at 7". End of. Unhelpful.

Ours was a one-day business trip, so I can't say we fully explored all that the Bund Garden had to offer.

However, arriving on a midnight flight and only arriving at the hotel at 1am, the service was impeccable. The desk officer was helpful, cheerful, checked us in about 5 minutes and even carried our luggage up to our rooms for us. (Be warned... there are no elevators in this hotel!)

The Bund Garden Hotel appears to be housed in a heritage building, with its own little yard one might imagine horses and carriages once came through. Beautifully preserved, and beautifully modernized as well, without compromising too much on the sense of the history of the building.

The room I had was gorgeously large. The bathroom was a little small, and the bathtub a little short (although quite nice and deep). Everything was very clean. There was a hint of smoke that pervaded the room (but I soon discovered that this is quite typical of smoggy Shanghai). The bed was large and comfortable (mattress is on the medium-firm side) and I might've been happier with firmer pillows, although the four pillows provided were more than generously fluffy.

The hotel is tucked away in a quiet side-street, but located within the city centre area of Pudong itself, with a LOT of high-end high street shopping and shopping malls available within walking distance. There was also a 24-hour convenience store just around the corner (some 200m) from the hotel, which proved to be a blessed bane for this hungry midnight travellers.

Despite the city-centre location though, the hotel is amazingly quiet (with rooms that face away from the streets) and sleep quality was unparalleled. I was awakened in the morning by the maid mistakenly coming in, so perhaps it would be best to either advise the front desk to not disturb you, or to ask if they had Do Not Disturb signs (as none was found in the room).

An excellent stay. Would stay here again for (a) the value for money, (b) gorgeous settings, (c) great staff service, and (d) excellent location & proximity to the rail transport station.

we arrived at 1 am and were pleased that someone was at the desk, as this is a small hotel. the staff was not happy about carrying our four rolling suitcases up three flights of stairs. he took one bag and we took the rest. there is no elevator. we are fit and fine with carrying bags, but patrons who are 60+ years old, like we are, may not appreciate it. and the attitude of the desk person was not necessary. the shower had very poor water pressure. the sink did not drain. the toilet clogged and no one had a plunger to fix it. it was very difficult to communicate with the front desk. the location is great. the breakfast included is very good, with lots of variety. poor lighting in the rooms and musty/cigarette smell (common in shanghai). many starbucks close by, but chinese coffee is better!

A very pretty building and interior, with old fashioned furnishings that were surprising in such a commercial section of Shanghai. The room did smell a bit musty and was poorly lit, but other than that was quite nice. Unfortunately none of the staff seemed to speak anything other than broken English, and we got some incorrect or poor advice that led to a rather inconvenient and unnecessary lap of Shanghai.... so if you stay here, come prepared with what you want to do and where you want to go, especially as there was no internet to be had (or so they told us... I think...). It was definitely more of a function centre for large groups of Chinese business men but we still found it to be a pleasant experience, and really close to the Bund and Nanjing road shopping so worth all the other stuff.

$200 per night for a 4 star hotel.

Travelling with my father. Upon arrival they said they didn’t have a room with 2 beds left, fine.

This hotel is very poorly maintained. You can tell it’s old and dated while I’m the hotel rooms. To top it off, the showers are filthy.

At these prices, it’s highway robbery if they charge you these prices and not use it to maintain their own premises for their guests.

I like simple clean comfortable hotels on a good location. The location is great and so is the building. Nice view in the garden. Very unique. The service is excellent. I forgot my painting in the hotel lobby and the lady at the desk shipped it to my home in Holland.
