This is by far one of the best world class hotels I have ever experienced and highly recommend it to anyone staying in Shanghai. Wonderful food in the dining rooms and a perfect location across from the Bund.

It is quite difficult to write a negative review for this hotel, but I figured if I didn't raise this issue again nothing might get done. First to start, the room was fantastic, not a very big room, but really well organized with a beautiful marble bathroom (which had a TV next to the tub, although it was hard to...

Stayed during the wonderful chaos of the May long weekend, when this hotel's luxury service and calm interior was a welcome respite at the end of a long day.

Beautiful hotel on the Bund in Shanghai. While the view from most rooms is not special, the hotel itself definitely is. This is only enhanced by superb service at every turn from a well trained staff. Also love the Jazz Bar which features what is claimed to be the "oldest Jazz band in Shanghai". Many great restaurants are within easy...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Shanghai's legendary landmark since 1929, the Fairmont Peace Hotel, overlooking Shanghai's Huangpu River and the world famous Bund, boasts a history that overshadows that of any other hotel in the Far East. With its origins dating back more than a century, this beloved landmark served as a glamorous playground for the elite of Shanghai, where every night was an extravagant gala event and veritable Parisian fashion show. After our three year meticulous restoration, the romantic history and social significance which made the Fairmont Peace Hotel a Shanghai legend has returned with its timeless grandeur - and a new and contemporary spirit. Each guestroom and suite has been luxuriously decorated with opulent furnishings and modern amenities - providing the guest with an experience that is both indulgent and exquisite. ... more   less
