Les Suites Orient Bund5 stars

Why this hotel? In The Bund. Wonderful views. Great value. Free WiFi.

The luxurious Les Suites Orient Bund is located in the centre of Shanghai, offering great views over the Huangpu River and the Pudong high-rise neighbourhood.

The designers successfully combine art deco with traditional Oriental style. The rooms have all the amenities you would expect from a 5-star hotel. We recommend the River View room.

Surprisingly good value for money and excellent service. This hotel is proud to publicly state that it is gay-friendly. We like that.

Park Hyatt Shanghai5 stars

Why this hotel? Stunning city views. Fabulous pool & facilities. Free WiFi.

The Park Hyatt occupies the 79th-93rd floors of the Shanghai World Financial Center – one of the highest hotels in the world. Needless to say, the views of the city and Huangpu river are stunning.

Minimalist-styled rooms have all the high-tech facilities including a motion sensor in the toilet! Huge rain showers and a large tub to soak in. We bet you will not find a pool and gym on a higher floor anywhere in the world.

The hotel has won awards many years in a row for their approach to LGBT equality.
