“Amaizing Stay for NY2013”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

I was staying for one week for the New Year 2013.
The hotel has perfect location and from our room the view was AMAIZING!
The room was perfect.
The hotel management has top world level.
The consierge desk works perfect, but please be informed that nobody from the taxi drivers speaks English and as per consierge' advice they prints the location to go on English and Chinesse.
All the restaurants are excellent as food and service.
You can feel the old Europe and America in one place!

Room Tip: The perfect place for holidays and business!

We had cruised from Sydney to Beijing then undertook a 9 day Princess Land tour ending back in Beijing. Then took the G13 Bullet train from Beijing to Shanghai and then were met at Shanghai Railway station and taken to our hotel the Waldorf Astoria on the Bund, Shanghai. We stayed in great hotels throughout China, but this was clearly the best and exceeded our high expectations.

We wanted something special to celebrate our 40th wedding Anniversary. From arrival where we were greeted by Christine to departure we felt like we were "royalty". Our room was upgraded to River View King (Room 1609) with superb views, which we always enjoyed. Our check in was completed in the room overlooking the Bund and The Oriental Pearl Television tower. How about this for a WOW factor !!!!

The room is beautifully furnished with walk in Robe and separate full size bathroom with separate Bath and shower.
Breakfast was exceptional in Grand Brasserie.
Long room bar just superb for drinks and a light meal selection again with excellent service.

Just a wonderful stay and look forward to returning in October 2013.

Just a stunning beautiful hotel with exceptional service. In our view it exceeded the Rome property . Thanks to helpful friendly and courteous staff. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: You want a deluxe room with view over the Bund and river

My wife and I stayed here in March '13. We were in China for our 25th wedding anniversary, and stayed in some wonderful hotels in Beijing and Shanghai. This was the best ! Fantastic location and service. The hotel is beautiful, and the Long Bar is a must. We were greeted by Champagne in our room, and the bathroom was so fabulous we took a video of it .. Stay here !

So, if you come here, you will probably get an overall idea what you can find. Perfect. And in truth everything will go beyond your expectation. The location is PRIME, the service is unmatched and the interiors where you can find marble marble marble and some more marble are exquisite.
We had a deluxe "bund view" room on the tower and i spent hours looking outside. Breakfast buffet..you strive to see the end and seems like you are cuddled instead of served. Tried the bar also with an endless choice of spirits (well priced for a top luxury hotel) and the brassery with one of the most succulet fillet i have ever tasted.
So...if you can afford the (not cheap at all) rate.. this place worth every buck you are spending.

Room Tip: Book the deluxe river view room to be enchanted by the view.

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 o...

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.
