Just stayed at the Waldorf for 4 nights on first trip to China. The location on the Bund cannot be beat. The is a 6 story building adjacent to hotel at No.3 Bund with several of the top restaurants in Shanghai. The hotel's breakfast buffet is massive and is served in the Conservatory. Service and food prep was excellent. The rooms are better than most in US, with every detail thought of. Indoor pool is a relaxing place to recharge. The staff is friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor facing the Bund. The view is terrific, but at night the light show on the buildings across the river is amazing.

To the management and staff of Waldorf Astoria, Shanghai. Wow …..just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your hotel. The service is one of the best, particularly the 'Welcome' service. The check-ins, in the room is such an excellent idea and made us feel so relaxed after our long journey from Australia not having to fuss around with passports, paperwork and keys. Thank you to the hotel's Personal Assistants. We would also like to mention how all of the staff in your hotel was attentive and friendly. The room was lovely, it is a very beautiful decorated one and we simply loved the bed! Talk about views, it was so amazing. Waldorf Astoria is definitely a 5 star hotel of a high standard and very welcoming. A perfect place for us to stay whilst enjoying beautiful Shanghai! Thank you once again for making our staying memorable and special thanks to all staff for taking good care of us especially to Leo the concierge! Kind regards, Michael & Chandrika Lanteri Melbourne AUSTRALIA

The Waldorf Astoria on the Bund in Shanghai must be by far and away the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff were attentive , the buffet breakfast extensive and catered for every taste and the rooms beautifully appointed. The bathroom is definitely worth a mention. There was a television cleverly hidden in the large wall mirror and the toilet was beyond description. A seat that lifts as you walk in, a heated seat and an electric built in bidet. My husband and I felt thoroughly spoilt and it would be our hotel of choice in Shanghai.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Bund

We have stayed five nights at this superbly located hotel and have not encountered any problem whatsoever. All our demands were met and questions answered in duetime. Our room was very spacious and it was facing the river so had a really nice view (of skyscrapers for those who think this is interesting). The hotel's staff are quite young and maybe not much experienced. I tend to find this rather normal as these services are recently emerging in China. They did their best to help with great enthusiasm. Since we travelled with our young child and that it was our first visit to Shanghai, we opted for an airport pick-up service arranged by the hotel, which is rather expensive. Shanghai is a very safe city, I don't think this pick-up service is necessary if time is no concern. We also wisited one of the water towns nearby with a private tour operator suggested by the hotel. The tour was nice but extremely expensive for what it is. I believe the hotel may come up with more reasonable options for its guests. The Long Bar is definitely touristic but a really nice bar considering that it sits in a hotel.

We stayed 3 nights for a tourist visit and were extremely pleased with the hotel. The hotel is easily reached by taxi from Hongqiao airport (about 80 RMB). Location on the Bund is perfect for a visit to the Bund, Shanghai square, Pudong and the old Chinese quarter, all within walking distance. The hotel itself is really worth its 5 stars. The lobby area which covers the old and the new hotel is impressive. The guestroom in the modern part with a view on the river was very spacious with 2 very comfortable beds. The bathroom itself had a bath, a separate shower and separate toilet, all with the latest amenities. Breakfast served in the Brasserie is probably one of the best we ever had with a very wide choice of chinese and western dishes, plus dishes on order. Finally the staff really made everything they could to make our stay a pleasure. We would definitely choose again the WA for a next trip to Shanghai.

Room Tip: rooms with a view on the river and Pudong are a must
