You could not ask for a better location, right in the middle of Bund. The history and tradition add to the experience. If you can afford it ask for a suite overlooking the river and Pudong. The service could not be bettered, although the restaurant staff could perhaps improve their English a little. All was overseen by the incomparable Henry...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We have been blessed to have the opportunity to travel extensively--we are also fortunate in that we can decide what sort of place we stay in. We have deliberately gone "off-road" in places like India and Peru, to have a connected experience to the land we are visiting. We have also opted to go upscale, when the moment seemed to...

Shanghai, the Bund, the French Concession, the Hwang Po river, the Japanese invasion, Communist party headquarters, J.G. Ballard, the Sassoon family and a modern emergence. These are all impressions and images of this storied hotel, sitting at the corner of the Bund and Nanking Rd. When I knew we were going to be visiting Shanghai this hotel immediately came to...

The hotel has only 6 or 7 suites looking at the bund and the river, each one with a unique style (American, French, Japanese, Indian, etc.). I rented the Indian suite, and all I can say is that I would like to live in a place like that, everything was so amazing. I had someone to unpack and pack for...

Can't recommend this hotel enough for its beauty, history, location and personnel who work there. The service is excellent and the Chinese restaurant was one of the best meals we have had. The rooms are new and clean. Excellent location-excellent stay.

Booked the gold level king bed room. Service was impeccable from pick up from Hongqiao to having my own dedicated 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.

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
