This is a true 5 star property.,the service is low key and efficient. Great location on the Bund. The room we had overlooked the Bund, where you can experience a nightly light show on the sky scrapers that surround the Bund. Everything in the room is state of the art including the electronics. The deluxe room was large and well... More

Even at a rainy a good place to enjoy the sunset over the Huangpu river. Actually we planned to visit the rooftop bar - which is excellent by sunny weather. However, it was closed and we had to go indoors. We were positively surprised about the good views and cosy atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and mindful.

I must confess that I was not a guest at what I'm sure is one of the best hotels in Shanghai. I was a tourist in desperate need of a taxi on a busy Saturday night to get back to my hotel in Pudong. After standing outside for 30 minutes with no taxi either stopping for us or not willing... More

Wonderful stay last month at the Shanghai Peninsula. We later moved on to the Hong Kong Peninsula, and although they are both amazing, I preferred Shanghai. The "spa" button in the bathroom was amazing, the dressing room was enormous and more like an office with room to hang clothes. Everything about the property, including location, was special.

This is my favourite hotel in city for the location. It definitely has the best view from the rooftop bar with delicious finger food to try (from caviar to patanegra) Rooms are amazing and suites just unbelievable. Try sir ellis restaurant at 13th floor, it is worth it One advice is to extend business center hours later than 5pm.

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.

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
