The Yangtze Boutique Shanghai, with 86-year-long history
Born in Art, Debut as the Shining Oriental Pearl
上海扬子精品酒店的前身扬子饭店建于1933年，是⼀栋有着86年历史的文物保护建筑，由留法建筑师李蟠设计，以上海二、三十年代最流行的装饰艺术(Art Deco)为主体设计风格，并获得“远东第三大饭店” 的美誉。这里曾是阮玲玉、蝴蝶等老上海电影明星争相登场的社交胜地，也是那首经典老歌《玫瑰 玫瑰我爱你》的发源之地。
The Yangtze Boutique Shanghai is a renowned hotel with a long history dates back to 1933. The Yangtze Hotel, the predecessor of The Yangtze Boutique Shanghai, designed by the hand of Li Pan, an architect educated in France, was decorated with lavish Art Deco style. This hotel was titled as “The Third Magnificent Hotel in the Far East.” It soon became a favored place for social gathering for celebrities and movie stars. This antique building, now under government protection, was the genuine birthplace of the classic and well-known song “Rose, Rose, I love you.”
As stepping into the hotel, the traditional and noble decorations in the main hall would flourish the perception with elegance and serenity. Under the dome with glass painting, hangs the crystal-clear chandeliers; above the luxurious carpets, leads to the quiet corridors. Displayed along these corridors, are the time capsules bringing back the golden memories of the 1920s: a cute jewelry box, an old razor, a slightly rusted door lock, a heavily used pipe, a handbag might belong to a fair lady, a hairpin made with tortoiseshell, or merely a metal biscuit jar. The element of art runs deeply in the veins of the hotel, and together with the historical sense, a unique staying experience rooted in the early twentieth century’s Shanghai will be presented to our honored guests.
Refined and Returns, Singing in New Voice
Eighty-six years later, The Yangtze Hotel was reborn as The Yangtze Boutique Shanghai. The hotel locates ideally in People’s Square, with only around 30 meters distance from the metro line 1/2/8. This privileged location enables our boutique hotel to be surrounded by major cultural and entertainment highlights within walking distance, including Nanjing Pedestrian Road, People’s Park, the Raffles City, Shanghai history museum, Shanghai Grand Theatre, and Shanghai Museum.
Each of the hotel’s 103 exquisite Art Deco styled rooms and suites, equipped with comforting beds and state-of-art facilities, offer a personal sanctuary of peace and relaxation to our honored guests. 60% of our rooms and suites feature a private balcony or terrace, a private space for both unfading memories and beautiful city scenery. One-third of the room area is designated as the private bathroom. These extra-sized bathrooms equipped with audio-visual entertainment systems and spa facilities would bring uncomparable resting experience to our honored guests.
