Stayed here for 2 nights very recently. Situated right on the bund, an incredible hotel to say the least. Steeped in history this classic hotel very much feels like you just stepped back into the 30's. They have done plenty of renovations so while it is old, it looks far from tired. The rooms are incredible, the food is great... More

I surprised my fiancé with a stay in the Japanese Suite (Room 620) for his birthday. The Japanese Suite is one of the "9 Nations Suites" the hotel is famous for and since my fiancé loves Japanese Architecture I thought this would be a great surprise. While the room was obviously expensive, it was worth every Cent. Or every RMB.... More

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
