My first time to China, Shanghai was everything i could have imagined. Staying at the hotel only metres from the famous Shanghai bund was a experience i will never forget. The hotel was a short stroll to Nanjing Road walking street. Ive never seen so many people on one street, an exciting place to be. The hotel service was wonderful... More

Shanghai City has always been on my list. Just never had the chance before.... So I guess never say never. I always said when ever you got to travel to another country, pay the price to stay where you need to be. Don't waste valuable time and expense in taxis travelling across cities. Just stay in a hotel as close... More

I only had two nights in Shanghai and our stay at the fairmont was wonderful. the lights across the Shanghai river looking towards the new part of Shanghai is incredible. thank you Fairmont for a great Shanghai experience .. Obviously the location can not be more perfect.

The Shanghai Fairmont Peace Hotel is a slice of history in one of the world's most modern and beautiful cities. My last stop on a trip around China. I have loved every minute of this visit. Stopped in Beijing, Xian to see the Terra Cotta warriors, Guilin for a slice of small town Chinese style and last Shanghai. China is... More

tried their afternoon tea before. brought my mom to jasmine lounge this summer to have afternoon tea (ordered 2 sets) again. less impressed this time: has the tea menu been updated? if my memory served me correctly, I thought they'd got more choices; several tourists walked in through the back door, sat down to rest - not entirely the staff's...

We stayed in the Fairmont Shanghai for 3 nights mid-Aug. during a recent family trip to China. It was toward the end of our visit and we were admittedly fairly exhausted from all the site-seeing and crowds. This hotel provided a much-needed respite from the hectic (and hot!) outside world: cool, calm, comfortable, convenient, with a dash of historic elegance.... More

Right on the Bund, this hotel is a landmark and beautiful inside. Our room was on the executive floor so that we could use the club lounge which was excellent. I have only given it 4 stars because of two small issues: 1. The price of going to the Jazz club £80+ each was ridiculous really. 2. Staff member in... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighborhood 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.
