This historic is conveniently located at the bund, I enjoyed very good services in check in, concierge, swimming pool and spa. But I am very disappointed with the buffet breakfast served on the 8/f. The French toast served in the buffet was the hardiest toast I even had in my life!! It's obviously leftovers from the day before, and I... More

Lovely hotel, great location, great staff. The only complain I have is the very slow wifi in room. Otherwise, I would give it a rating of 5. I hope the hotel management consider to add wifi booster. Overall, I love this hotel and will stay there again next time I am in Shanghai for pleasure.

The Fairmont Peace hotel is an art deco lovers dream. Built in 1929, the fixtures and details have been restored to their original beauty and they are visible at every turn. Movie stars and dignitaries have stayed at the Peace hotel since it's opening. The service is first class without being stuffy or pretentious. The rooms are lovely and modern... More

Top notch hotel with THE best location steps away from the famous BUND -waterfront promanade that thousands stroll on all day and evening waiting the the skyline to light up with lights from skyscraper buildings. Great food and great Parisian Cafe with good food while you people watch. Staff excellent.

Was recommended to this hotel by a friend of mine. I was quite impress by service from one of the staff Joyce. In China, most people can't speak English, she manage to introduce the facilities, places of interest nearby to me even though she can't speak the language very well. It's the effort that make me feel at home for... More

The hotel is right on the Bund and on the intersection by a main shopping street (Nanjing East Road). It is a tourist attraction in its own right because of the fabulous Art Deco architecture inside and out. This has pros and cons: the building and rooms and beautifully designed and opulent without being over the top. But there are... 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.
