A stay at the Waldorf Astoria on the Bund is an experience in itself. I did not want to leave.
We loved our 3 night stay here. The service from all staff was just incredible - no exceptions. They anticipated our needs without us realising that they were there.
We had a river facing room and it was very spacious and beautifully appointed. The furnishings were luxurious and it had all the mod cons including a nespresso machine, TV concealed in the bathroom mirror, a loo that was tantamount to a throne and more. (don't want to spoil all the surprises). The free wifi was so easy to use, was great and reliable
The breakfast was delicious and extensive with so many fresh and inviting options. The tables in the dining room are spaced well away from each other which gives one privacy in a public area.
The business lounge is great, offering free soft drinks, coffee, snacks in a very comfortable, spacious and inviting area.
We were in a river facing room, about midway up and had river views that were slightly interrupted by the buildings in front, including the front tower of the WA.
The hotel is well placed on the Bund. Close enough to walk to good restaurants nearby and also to take a walk along the Bund.
We flew into Shanghai Pudong International Airport. We decided to take the Maglev train from the airport to Longyang Road and then a cab to the hotel. It was really easy to do. The directions to the train in the airport are very clear. It was a fun experience. It's always a good idea to have your hotel name and address written in Mandarin, so that the cab drivers know exactly where to take you.
I should add that we spent 7 nights in Shanghai - 3 at the Waldorf Astoria on the Bund and 4 across the river at the Shangri-La Pudong. Should we return to Shanghai, the Waldorf Astoria would without any doubt be our hotel of choice.
Loved being on the Bund side, loved the Waldorf Astoria
Well done to all concerned for providing an incredible experience.
