What I enjoyed most about this hotel is the Room, obviously alot of thought was put into it although the shower cubicle is a tad small. If your room includes breakfast at the lobby, its a fair spread. If you only speak English look for a foreign staff to assist you as the handling of the language remains tricky to... More

It had been a few years since my last stay at The Peninsula in Shanghai and from the minute I walked in it was if I was home. The staff was attentive and made sure all of my favorite things were ready. My favorite part about this hotel is the beautiful pool. I get so much joy spending the morning... More

Where to start? Opulent rooms and hotel, amazing rooftop bar with the best view in Shanghai, top notch service and follow up. The hotel is located on the Bund and easy access to the main sites. Even looking for something to complain about is near impossible. Hands down one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Not inexpensive to say... More

Okay, it's true, I've stayed in more hotels than I can actually remember. Also true that I love gadgets. So a high tech room with everything that opens and shuts (and actually works), plus a great bed, excellent bathroom, power sockets (yep), wifi that works (most of the time). This is a top notch business hotel in a superb location.... More

I stayed two nights at this Posh hotel on the Bund. It occupies one of the best locations in Shanghai. The services and luxurious settings are really unmatched.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located along the historic Bund with spectacular views of the Bund, Huangpu River, Pudong and former British Consulate gardens, The Peninsula Shanghai perfectly blends with the historic architecture of its landmark neighbours. The Peninsula Shanghai, which opened in October 2009, is the first new building to be constructed on the historic Bund in over 60 years. Offering the best of Peninsula traditions and a range of signature services and facilities, including Shanghai's largest guestrooms and the city's highest staff-to-guest ratio, The Peninsula also heralds the return of parent company, The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, to Shanghai where it owned and operated four of the city's premier hotels in the 1920s to 1940s - The Kalee, The Astor House, The Palace and The Majestic. ... more   less
