Perfect in every way. Excellent room, facilities, service, pool and so on. A great location in Shanghai. Everything is thought of, even down to the flip-fops in each locker of the fitness centre. Why do I say nearly perfect? Well the breakfast fried eggs, sunny side up, were cooked in a pan that was touch too hot. So the bottoms...

The service is so good it is unbelievable. The food in all of the restaurants is excellent. The breakfast that comes with the room...

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was the best possible experience in Shanghai. Located on The Bund, it has a great view and close to the cool bars and restaurants. The hotel itself also has a great cigar / wine bar. The room I stayed in was huge and decor was very classical. I definitely considered it very luxurious...

I stayed at the river-view room. Enjoyed fantastic views! Good air (atmosphere), and clean pool. And delicious (complimentary) cookie in the room. (We received another bottles!!!) Close to this hotel, numerous charming restaurants. I think that it's the best place to enjoy Bund. Full mark if more explanation for room/hotel facilities when check in.

Very beautiful hotel with great skyline view. Interior of hotel and room were well decorated and classy. Staff can speak good English and extremely friendly. The breakfast buffet are big delicious items, difficult to make up my mind which one I should eat first. Yummy. We enjoyed our stay very much. Top experience for a hotel in China!

We stayed there for the new year eve. Unfortunately, our room is facing the city side, so we cannot enjoy the great view of the bund. However, the location is good, so we just directly visited the bund. The room is very large. The breakfast is good. We really enjoyed it.

This is our second time to stay at the Waldorf shanghai. It is a wonderful hotel. This time we were offered a room with city view, not as exciting as the river view room we were offered the first time. From the river view room, you can have a breathtaking view across the Huangpu river and all the landmarks like...

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.
