We spent 4 nights here at the end of a China tour. The hotel was fantastic, very ornate and the staff were all very friendly. The location across from the Bund was excellent for walking. Free fast wifi in the room. Breakfasts were excellent, with plenty of choices and nice dining room. Not to far to walk to the main...

Beautiful room, excellent service did not want to leave. Like stepping back to the 20's. Only thing I didn't like was the very strong perfumed air freshener. The Hotel museum was very interesting especially the tour of the hotel. To be able to take a leisurely breakfast was amazing. The Jazz bar a must. A must is to have drinks...

This five star hotel deserves its stars! The service level from beginning to end is exemplary, and the rooms are well designed and luxurious.

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
