My third visit and this time just spend a night here! Love the location, food and ambience! The bed is really comfortable and huge, and had a restful sleep! Love the nice breakfast, dining with a view and truly relaxing, especially when it is a weekend!

This is a really top hotel. The quality of all members of staff throughout all the areas is first class. The concierge is superb, and arranged fantastic tour guides. The rooms are fabulous and find any way possible to get a view of the Bund as you won't be disappointed.

We visited this hotel as part of the uniworld cruise trip we did to China. We loved it. The accommodations and the facility are excellent and beautiful is modern and "fancy". The food is excellent and one of the smallest elevators in Shanhi is located inside the hotel as well as a historic bar. Will recommend.

Stayed here in adjoining rooms with our children. Had room on 16th floor overlooking The Bund (1603 & 1604). What a view. I could have sat in our lovely lounge area watching the boats all day. The buildings across the water are amazing. Staff at the hotel were very helpful. There was a large selection of different food available at... More

Stayed in a suite for a night for business trip at Waldorf Astoria Shanghai. The experience was unforgettable! We were well taken care of from the first step entering the hotel (and through out our stay!). Lily, our personal concierge was really lovely. She made our stay ever more special. Breakfast was also amazing! (Try their croissant, it is one... More

Good location if you like to have a walk on Waitan in the evening or at night when not so crowded. Rooms are on the level, staff as well. Restaurant - nothing special. But i liked afternoon desserts, quite nice!

On a recent short business trip to Shanghai, I got to stay at this amazing hotel. Convenient location just right next to the Bund, staff were friendly and I loved the deco. Pity that I didn't get to try out their food as I had quite a few dinner and lunch appointments outside the Hotel.

I travel to Shanghai frequently for business and the stay is quite comfortable. It's a classic luxury property. The beds are very comfortable which is great after a long work day. The bathrooms are nice. Scoring a room with a view of The Bund is a plus. The hotel itself is dark it's part of the atmosphere. Lots of seating... More

Located in an ideal location for walking to the river, shopping, restaurants, and to admire historic buildings. Ask for a river view room - great scene, if it is clear of smog.

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.
