Lap of luxury in Shanghai. Gorgeous expansive room /dressing room and didn't want to leave the view from the bed (after raising the automatic curtains). Expansive lobby with jazz/chamber music. Michelin star restaurants -- truly superb -- fleet of BMW's (and yes, get the white glove service to the airport). Perfect location overlooking Bund with garden on one side. Most...

We stayed in a river view room in the Peninsula and we looked out over the river. In front was a square where women danced with flags and others did tai chi in the early morning and behind was the high rise buildings of the business district that lit up like Disney World at night. Nearly was top of the...

The Peninsula continues to achieve a level of excellence above all others in Shanghai. The rooms are beautiful- I particularly love the corner Grand Deluxe room number 812 as it gets great light. The staff couldn't be more amazing and the food continues to be extraordinary. This is the only place I'll stay when visiting Shanghai.

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)
Located along the historic Bund with spectacular views of the Bund, Huangpu River, Pudong and former British Consulate gardens, The Peninsula Shanghai perfectly blends with the historic architecture of its landmark neighbours. The Peninsula Shanghai, which opened in October 2009, is the first new building to be constructed on the historic Bund in over 60 years. Offering the best of Peninsula traditions and a range of signature services and facilities, including Shanghai's largest guestrooms and the city's highest staff-to-guest ratio, The Peninsula also heralds the return of parent company, The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, to Shanghai where it owned and operated four of the city's premier hotels in the 1920s to 1940s - The Kalee, The Astor House, The Palace and The Majestic. ... more   less
