Was fortunate to be able to stay at Les Suites Orient, Bund Shanghai, during my previous trip to Shanghai in July. First time in my life staying in such luxurious hotel in a very strategic location. Can easily walk to Nanjing Road, the main shopping street of Shanghai.
Les Suites Orient ON THE BUND is a life style boutique hotel with an unparalleled location on the city’s most famous boulevard.
With panoramic views of the famous Bund, the Lujiazui skyline, as well as the 16th century Yu Gardens, the property has a sweeping eye over both the old and new. Guests can enjoy a view from any of its rooms and suites, while enjoying Western and Asian cuisine at Cafe Dongxi.
These photos are taken across the road of the hotel. Didn’t take photos of the lobby because didn’t want to look like a ‘sakai’ *LOL* Immediately entering the hotel, I thought I’m heading into a spa.
I stayed in 12th floor. Upon going into the room… WOW! I was blown away! This room, Bund Studio, was booked for about RM700 per night from Agoda. The bed is so comfy, the minibar is well-stocked, fruits and bottled water are complimentary. Coffee making machine is available for you to brew gourmet coffee. The tea bag they stock is Twinnings while coffee capsule is Illy.
The bathroom has bathtub and spacious shower cubicle. While enjoying the bathtub, you can watch TV or enjoy the view from the window. The bathroom itself is huge! On the mirror, there’s digital clock and outdoor temperature/weather display built-in. There’s a sofa, writing desk , and TV in the room too.
The toiletries are by Gilchrist & Soames. The lotion is moisturizing; the shampoo and conditioner gave me soft and easy to manage hair; and the shower gel is not drying.
The view from the room and bathroom. Great view isn’t it? Too bad it rained and always gloomy out there. Just too bad, the city is pretty polluted that you hardly see blue sky. Imagine if the sky is blue… That will be one amazing view.
Left: Breakfast at Cafe Dongxi. A very cozy place for breakfast serving a combination of Chinese and Western specialties.
Right: You can also enjoy free snacks and fruit in the Lounge on the 3rd floor. This was where I spent my early evening at because I’m just too lazy to go out to find food after work.

The service is good, staff is friendly. WiFi is available in all areas and is free of charge. There’s a fitness centre and business centre.
Overall, if you have the budget, this is one good hotel that you can stay when you’re in Shanghai.
