We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai over Christmas. We were a little unsure of what a Chinese hotel might offer for Christmas but like everything else it does it did it superbly. The table settings in the bistro for Christmas were simply amazing! The hotel limousine, lobby, private concierge who met us and the registration process which was conducted... More

The heritage lobby, entered directly from The Bund, is everything a world class heritage lobby should be - lots of marble, black and white tiles, high ceilings, chandeliers and some beautiful floral displays. Wow. The pool is also beautiful and there is a chroma therapy thing happening with the abutting jacuzzi - a great spot to relax at the end... More

Great place. Lots of privacy and tranquility yet at the Bund and a few blocks from People's Square. Staff is always very helpful and service personalized. Phantastic pool. Long Bar brings you back in history.

Absolutely stunning architecture as you enter, although it’s such a large building that you feel like you walk about a block from the river entrance to get to the reception desk. There’s an entrance from the back that I recommend using if you have transportation picking you up or dropping you off. The rooms do not disappoint either, with large... More

This hotel is amazing. The building itself is spectacular and located on the Bund with the most incredible views. the room is perfect, great technology, great bed, great bathroom.....every thing is perfect. The incredible breakfast just rounds it all off perfectly. There are only two negatives and these are not caused by the hotel: 1. Guests smoking in the corridors... More

As a diamond member of the HHonors program, it was pleasing to secure a room upgrade to a waterfront view. However, it was much more than this that resulted in my exceptional rating. Location: this hotel really does have a prime position over looking the river and pudong. It is about a 10 minute walk to the nearest subway station,... More

I'll be brief - this hotel and the service were exemplary!!!! Breakfast buffet was beyond our wildest expectations with incredible service to match. My partner and I put on a few kgs during the 10 day stay ;) Room was beautiful with a view to die for. The only negative thing about this hotel was the slow wi-fi and I... More

The hotel is most excellent in every way. The hardware is beautiful. The bed is one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on. We stayed in a room in the new building, but the nice Italian lady (I cannot remember her name!) was kind enough to show us the suites in the historic section. They were lovely, like a... More

In the past 2 years, I've enjoyed 4 separate stays with the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund. I had originally selected this hotel for the waterfront location and close proximity to the exciting Bund nightlife. I had only intended to stay once, and then try some of the other amazing hotels that Shanghai has to offer. However, I am... More

If you have the points or the money-- just do it and stay here, you won't be disappointed. The hotel is outstanding in every way. We arrived slightly bedraggled and a little worse for wear from a 2 day train journey to Shanghai from the mountains, and the staff all welcomed us fantastically. As a Diamond Guest, we were upgraded... More
