Info

The Astor House Hotel (Chinese: 礼查饭店; pinyin: Lǐchá fàndiàn), also known as the Pujiang Hotel (浦江饭店; Pǔjiāng Fàndiàn), is an historic landmark hotel on the northern Bund in Shanghai, China. It is the successor to the earlier Richards' Hotel and Restaurant.
The story of the Hotel provides a revealing insight into the history of China itself. According to Rob Gifford, "The Astor House Hotel has witnessed the whole sweep of China's emergence into the modern world, from English opium running in the 1840s through the tea dances of polite society in the 1920s and to the excesses of Maoist China in the 1960s."
