I recently stayed at the Fairmont Peace with my family for four nights. The hotel is excellent with a beautiful old world charm and you cannot beat the location. It is across the street from the Bund. The room was spacious and elegant with a good-sized bathroom. The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast buffet was stunning... More

Gorgeous hotel and perfect location in the Bund. Don't miss the spectacular view from the 9th floor deck, or dinner in the Cathay Room. The spa was on the pricier side for China but perfect. The front desk staff and concierge were eager to help.

Can never stop complimenting this hotel. Actually, it is more than a hotel. It is home away from home. Fantastic building, but the staff really make it a remarkable place. From Henry in the foyer, who has to be in more photos around the world than anyone, with his welcoming smile, to Diane and her team in the Gold Lounge.... More

The Fairmont Peace is lovingly restored to much of it's original beauty The architectural details are wonderful and are all throughout the hotel. The breakfast buffet is first class and the staff was very helpful in all regards. For me it's a perfect blend of luxury and old world charm.

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
