This hotel is by far one of the best in the world. We were greeted by Harrison, who introduced the hotel and the escorted us to the room. The room beautifully decorated with 1920's Art Deco throughout! And the bathroom was massive! Harrison made us feel like we were the only guests in the hotel, arranging reservations, tours and helpful...

Reviewed 12 April 2017

We stayed at this hotel for two nights prior to a cruise. We had a club level room. We also booked a limo pick-up through the hotel, which probably led to the incredible check-in that we had. When we exited the limo, a staff member from the club level check-in met us at the car, guided us to our room...

Just returned from staying two nights here at the Fairmont Peace Hotel. I would definitely go back and highly recommend. Rooms were surprisingly large, very lovely and the bathroom was huge. Location could not be better, right across the street from the harbor and a quick walk to the large pedestrian mall area. It also has a very quaint and...

The rooms in this hotel are enormous! The food is just average. The location is perfect---across the street from the Riverside Promenade and near many shops. On the weekend they have ballroom dancing where you will see couples dressed up in their best practicing this as an art!

Stayed 3 nights. From the lobby to the room this is a beautiful step back in time to a grand era. The staff were always attentive and helpful. We appreciated the concierge organising flowers for our 35th wedding anniversary at my husband's request and then telling us they were complementary. The breakfast was in a beautiful high ceilinged room and...

The Fairmont closed the old Peace Hotel for a few years and the resultant restoration is stunning as the property revitalizes sympathetically the Art Deco grandeur of 1930's Shanghai. The Lobby alone takes your breath away. And it has the best location in the city at the intersection of the Bund and Nanjing Road. Rooms beautiful, staff responsive and accomodating....

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
