I cannot say enough about the amazing service we received while staying at the Fairmont Peace hotel. Not only is the hotel well located on the Bund overlooking Pudong with all its splendor of lights at night but the room was spacious and well appointed. What we were most impressed with would be the Fairmont Gold executive floor and all...

Was back in Shanghai in early March. Whenever I am back we go to the Fairmont Peace Hotel to check things out. We enjoy the Cathay Room for dinner and the Old jazz Band on the ground floor afterwards. The food in Cathay Room is always exceptional, and how could you not like the Jazz band.

Live in Shanghai already, but enjoyed a two day staycation here and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff are friendly and inviting. The room and the premises are absolutely beautiful.

It's been called an Art Deco masterpiece. The Fairmont Peace Hotel is that and more. Have a close look at all the details- tiles, woodwork, ceramics, fixtures, art, and furniture. Everything is top notch- no corners cut or expense spared. I stayed in a Gold King room on the 5th floor. It was luxurious and roomy. The bathroom is especially...

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
