Our short three day stay at the Peace Hotel was highlighted by the excellent treatment we received from hotel staff Harrison Mott in particular. The hotel is a classic building which has the highest standard of decor and fittings I have experienced in my many travels. But it was the professional class standard of the staff that made our experience... More

We didn't stay at the hotel as it was not convenient for where I was working, but made a special journey to the Bund to eat here. The attention of the staff was brilliant, and we were lucky enough to have a window table with views of the river. Food pretty good too.

This is a top-notch historic hotel in a prime location, with all the amenities to be expected from the Fairmont brand. Its main appeal is aesthetic, as it has been refurbished with painstaking detail to recall the look and atmosphere of its origins a century ago. In contrast to the beauty and comfort of the setting, the food was slightly... More

This hotel is a Shanghai landmark. Outside the door is the spectacular view of the neon lit Pudong skyline from the Bund. Inside it's an up to date glimpse of past colonial luxury living. Our room didn't have a waterfront view but was otherwise generously sized and extremely comfortable with a huge bed. Included breakfast should satisfy the most demanding!... More

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)
Shanghai's legendary landmark since 1929, the Fairmont Peace Hotel, overlooking Shanghai's Huangpu River and the world famous Bund, boasts a history that overshadows that of any other hotel in the Far East. With its origins dating back more than a century, this beloved landmark served as a glamorous playground for the elite of Shanghai, where every night was an extravagant gala event and veritable Parisian fashion show. After our three year meticulous restoration, the romantic history and social significance which made the Fairmont Peace Hotel a Shanghai legend has returned with its timeless grandeur - and a new and contemporary spirit. Each guestroom and suite has been luxuriously decorated with opulent furnishings and modern amenities - providing the guest with an experience that is both indulgent and exquisite. ... more   less
