Best location on the Bund, and main shopping street , Art Deco wonder with fantastic views from the 8th floor breakfast room.jazz bar and gin gin lounge evoke the inner war decadence that wasShanghai. now a twenty second century city which will blow way your per-conceptions of China.
Yvonne and her team present a friendly and relaxed experience the jasmine lounge high tea is must.
The Fairmont gives you a time traveling experience the marble and walnut high style Art Deco with an ultra modern facilities.

Fairmont Peace Hotel, Shanghai, China

Old World Luxury – be ready to be wowed! The Fairmont Peace hotel is breathtaking – you feel like you are at the home of the Great Gatsby! The Fairmont Peace hotel is a gorgeous hotel that was renovated in 2007 to painstakingly preserve the art deco style of the 1920’s. It embodies not only a smart atmosphere but luxury and grace as well. We took over 400 pictures of just the hotel and its beautiful appointments! The hotel is jaw dropping to see but so is the view it affords you of Pudong! Located literally across the street from the Bund, which overlooks the activities and lights on the Huangpu River the hotel’s view displays the glory of Pearl Tower and about 40 other amazing feats of architect eye-candy! We recommend reserving a room on the Gold Floor. We enjoyed a beautiful suite and the luxury of the Gold Floor amenities which included a western as well as Asian breakfast and outstanding happy hour buffet and drinks. The staff is so accommodating – remembering not only your name but your coffee or wine preferences as well as where you like to sit in the room – amazing. In Shanghai, we decided to get around by walking, taxi and using double deck on/off passes. The bus stop was right across the street; we felt safe and were able to move about comfortably and in a timely manner.

Room Tip: Stay on the Gold Floor

This hotel is charming with luxurious rooms, excellent spa and beautiful dining room overlooking the river and the city of Shanghai. You really feel the history of the hotel and the staff are charming and can't do enough for you. I love staying in this hotel.

In the tradition of Fairmont Hotels an old hotel magnificently restored. The foyer is a sight to see, the staff were great. When we arrived the manager welcomed us and when we left we were asked if we enjoyed our stay. A short walk to the Bund and Shops.

This is an exceptional property in a fabulous city. We stayed in a one bedroom suite with side view of the Bund and river. Extremely tasteful decoration, very comfortable room, brilliant bathroom (with wonderful amenities from a top boutique fragrance designer from Grasse, France). Breakfast in the lounge was very good with a nice mix of Western and Eastern dishes and an 'egg chef' for made to order egg dishes. Spa treatments were also excellent (not cheap but was a perk in the package that we book). Only room service was disappointing with some very salty dishes and generally not very good food. This, however, is the only disappointment of our short stay - everything else was simply fabulous and I would return to the Fairmont Peace any day!

Stayed here over the new year countdown. The roads were closed and crowds poured in. When we got in our room, the peaceful ambience envelope you and draws you away from the weary and noisy crowd outside. The balcony outside the restaurant (western) provides a good photo shoot. Lovely view. If you got a room at the far corner, be prepared to walk thru 3 length of corridor before u get to your room. The hotel staff ate quietly elegant but quite aloof, don't appear helpful all the time. Checked in took a long long time. And wifi in the room is not free.

I am a Regular at many Fairmont Hotels but this one "Peace Hotel" is just beautiful. Our group had 3 rooms and from start to end the staff was super friendly and helpful. I am a platinum member and was not happy that Hotel charge 800Y for a 15 min ride each way while all hotels I have been to was at no charge.

Overall this is well located and good for business or personal.
