My initially concerns stemming from driving through a winding dark alley and walking into a very busy hotel lobby was quickly allayed upon checking in. Front desk operated efficiently and check in was a breeze. Assistant Front Office Manager William Wang made sure everything was operating smoothly. I had a number of questions before arrival and he seemed to be...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our trip. What a wonderfully delightful hotel. The service here was the best I have seen. The food at the restaurants were delicious.

This property must be a contender for finest hotel on Earth. All of the staff was amazing, and went out of their way to bridge any language barriers (which was rare, as most spoke conversational English). River view room was impeccable - perfect views of the night time Shanghai Skyline. Service/food was fantastic. Long bar was great - loved the...

Waldorf Astoria Shanghai is a beautiful property, in a great location, with absolutely gorgeous views of Pudong from the rooms facing the river (including the Pearl Tower and other landmarks). However, getting a taxi from the hotel was next to impossible and dampened our otherwise very enjoyable stay. As someone who used to live in Shanghai we know how difficult...

We really loved this hotel. Very luxurious with fabulous views from the room. We enjoyed the restaurant as well. The location was very central as well. Highly recommended. The views alone, especially at night seeing the skyline all lit up, are worth staying here.

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.
