Waldorf has been my go to hotel in Shanghai along with Ritz Carlton Pudong. It has one of the most beautiful facility and rooms in China, while also conveniently located by the bund. While I have always had a pleasant experience here, in my most recent stay I felt like service level has declined substantially. The shirts and suits on...

Before my stay, I was communicated both by a room department staff and a concierge. So I could inform them of room arrangement, checkin time and request restaurant reservation well in advance. Everything met my request. Every staff I met was attentive. The room had WOW factor. We stayed in a suite in the heritage building. It was exquisitely and...

Perfect in every way. Excellent room, facilities, service, pool and so on. A great location in Shanghai. Everything is thought of, even down to the flip-fops in each locker of the fitness centre. Why do I say nearly perfect? Well the breakfast fried eggs, sunny side up, were cooked in a pan that was touch too hot. So the bottoms...

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was the best possible experience in Shanghai. Located on The Bund, it has a great view and close to the cool bars and restaurants. The hotel itself also has a great cigar / wine bar. The room I stayed in was huge and decor was very classical. I definitely considered it very luxurious...

I stayed at the river-view room. Enjoyed fantastic views! Good air (atmosphere), and clean pool. And delicious (complimentary) cookie in the room. (We received another bottles!!!) Close to this hotel, numerous charming restaurants. I think that it's the best place to enjoy Bund. Full mark if more explanation for room/hotel facilities when check in.

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
