I'm not a fan of the Waldorf Astoria in New York and only chose this property on the warm recommendations of other reviewers and for it's location . We were not disappointed ! Had a highly enjoyable four day stay and were fortunate to be upgraded to a very comfortable river view suite with wonderful views of Pudong. The concierge... More

Our room was facing the bund it looked amazing in the night it had walk-in closet,... More

Hotels is very classy, clean etc etc., really nice. What's interesting about the building is the fact that some 100 years ago it used to an exclusive gentlemen's private club with the famous bar - well, bar's still there and supposedly looks exactly the same as back in the beginning of the 20th century. Not sure how it is right... More

Was in Shanghai on business and chose the Waldorf Astoria because I'm very familiar with their brand but also because of the high marks here on trip advisor. We considered other luxury hotels in the area, but figured since we were hilton honors members, this would be a great selection. Check-in/arrival: Our car took us to the wrong entrance at... More

We loved staying at this hotel! From the well-appointed location with an absolutely amazing view of the Bund and river, to the fresh fruits and cookies delivered to your room daily, to the white-marbled bathrooms with heated toilets outfitted with various "cleansing" options...probably the best hotel I've stayed in in Shanghai. The breakfast buffet was excellent as well, with the... More

Waldorf Shanghai is absolutely my favorite hotel in China. I travel to Shanghai at least once a month for work. Every time I try to stay at Waldorf. It's never disappointed me. The room was comfortable and quiet and staff were always helpful. Foods at the French restaurant on the first floor were one of best in Shanghai as well.... More

I have been several times in Shanghai, in chinese and american hotels. Most of them 5 stars. I must say that this hotel is in many ways superior to the standard for a 5 stars hotel. In fact I believe that there should be a 6th star category for this hotel!. What makes this hotel different and superior: 1) Location... More

A great hotel the rooms and the service are first class and easy walking distance to the ferry or train system to get around as the traffic is a night mare. The pool being indoor is very user friendly as the air quality outside isn't good.

We stayed here for three nights and it was an experience never to be forgotten. The rooms have every conceivable extra you could think of and the servicve provided by the hotel staff is sensational. The downside is the inevitable cost of the food and drink in the hotel. But, other than that, everything else is of the highest quality.
