A design hotel in an up and coming, historic area of Shanghai with a rooftop bar and a destination restaurant, The Waterhouse at South Bund promises to provide a faultlessly unique boutique hotel experience.

For a lively experience, request a room overlooking the courtyard. For a quieter experience, request a room overlooking the financial district or river.
Lean back and relax in the L-shaped rooftop bar after checking into Shanghai’s architecturally awesome The Waterhouse at South Bund. You’ll be treated to panoramic views of Pudong whilst sipping a drink before deciding on your next move. And on that note, we suggest a visit to this hotel’s destination restaurant as soon as possible, where your first bite will explain why it is deserving of that distinction.

This exclusive hotel is home to just 19 rooms, where perfect comfort within beautifully furnished, warehouse style spaces is paramount. The public places here allow glimpses into private rooms while the private spaces invite guests to peek into public areas. Take your pick of intricately designed accommodations that look out onto the hotel’s courtyard, the Hunagpu River, or the LuJiaZui financial district.

If the seamless transformation of a nondescript riverside building into a hotel that reinterprets modern Shanghai - where old and new sit side by side - sounds enticing, you won’t want to miss The Waterhouse at South Bund.

Great butique hotel with spirit

- nice stuff
- good food
- amaizing view from room and roof.

a wonderful architectural experience

We loved our stay in this highly considered reinvention of an existing industrial building. The bones of the original building are orchestrated into an intimate, clever and delightful architectural experience, rich in contemporary detail and materiality. We loved the spaces, materials, furniture and signage.
Staff were helpful and non intrusive, and food was great. We were there in winter - so unfortunately the wonderful rooftop bar was closed.
