HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

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...

This is my second stay at this beautiful hotel. I spent more time than usual in the hotel because of a minor health problem. After travelling throughout China for 4 weeks, this was such a delight. The property is right in the heart of things, across from the Bund and off Nanjing Road. It has wonderful facilities, a great spa,...

I first visited the Peace Hotel in 1987 and often work in Shanghai nowadays but stay elsewhere. This time I had my family- and we had a truly wonderful stay. I couldn't help but accept an offer to upgrade to the Spanish Suite- and it was worth every penny. Historic, beautiful and huge space- all overlooking the Bund. We enjoyed...

For those who think modern China is an endless series of anonymous glass tower hotels, try the Fairmont Peace in central Shanghai for something out of the world. The service is pure Victorian. Your bell gives instance access to a range of domestics that Jules Verne could have described for his world travellers. You can ask for anything and will...

This hotel is situated right on the Bund and really offers everything a 5 Star Hotel should. I was greeted on arrival and escorted directly to my room where I was checked 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
