The location is the best! 10mins walk to BuXinJie. And the Bund is just around the corner. Room is spacious and comfortable. If you were to travel alone, this is the best hotel to stay in! Remember to play the Jazz CD provides in your room!

Wow. I thought I'd choose a hotel that had some cultural significance, and it was the perfect choice. The hotel itself is classic, the room spacious and well-appointed with in-mirror TV in the bath, a bar with an espresso machine, fresh fruit and truffles. Certainly a 5 Star hotel, a 10 Star experience. What blew my mind was the Saturday...

Some say the Fairmont Peace is Shanghai's oldest hotel, some say it is one of the oldest. It does not really matter. This iconic hotel is old and gives the visitor a flavour of the luxury life in Shanghai in the 1920s. The place is located at The Bund and offers a scenic view onto and across the river, a...

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
