“Excellent property with best location”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

If one wants to stay in the town area this is the best located property with easy access to the shopping areas and tourist areas.
The property itself has history and is immaculately kept.
Service is excellent and prompt.
Would stay here again if visiting Shanghai.

Located next to the Bund promade, the Art Deco Fairmont Peace Hotel is a combination of historic and modern, Eastern and Western. The rooms are elegant and generously sized. The lobby has the most beautiful floral arrangements. The staff on all floors are more than friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The Fairmont Gold Executive breakfasts include both Eastern and Western choices - both being delicious and beautifully presented. From the roof top the view of the buildings across the river at night is a delight to the eye. Don't forget your camera. Shopping is an easy walk to Nanjing Road. And the historic Jazz Bar is a lot of fun for drinks and music.

we have stayed here for only two days as of our busy schedule - but: this is truly one of the best hotels i have ever been! from the convincing welcome by tim (by the way: a smart, super-educated and wordly young gentleman, that with no doubt will make his way up), the frankly spoken breathtaking, super-stylish interiors and the outstanding service-standard of the entire staff: it could not be any better! the location is top-notch, the food was just excellent and we and our friends are already planning to come back. one could not be treated and located better while being in shanghai! i regret that we had not more time to enjoy this wonderland of guest-relations!

Room Tip: we loved the "gold"-rooms with the extra ammenities....highly recommandable!

Even bothering to review this hotel is pretty much an exercise in overkill.
The Fairmont Peace Hotel is the definition of a luxury hotel.
It has a great location on the Bund, a vast lobby area,high end accommodative service
(especially the Front Desk , Concierge and Club floor personnel) and
a breakfast buffet that is also totally "first rate".
Make no mistake that you will pay dearly for the experience but if your pockets are deep
enough, follow Nike's advice and "Just Do It".

As you enter, you feel transformed. One thing buildings in Shanghai (sometimes) manage is to mix old and new. And this is great - you feel like you are back in the heady days of the 1920s. But of course you are in a top hotel. The rooms are amazing, the foyer is amazing (we listened to Christmas Carols there, great) the service is superb - all in well worth the money. Oh, yes, the location is great too!

The Fairmont Peace may be an older historic hotel, but upon entering you instantly see that it has earned it's 5 star rating. The staff are amazing, going out of their way to make you feel welcome. The deck outside the restaraunt has an amazing view of the Bund and the skyline across the river. It was a delight to stay there. Step across the street to the Bund and join the thousands of people walking along the riverfront.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the Bund.

We spend the New Year's here and it had an excellent location, right next to all the happenings. And there was a huge amount of people here for the New Year, so it was good that we could just escape back to the hotel once it was over.
I absolutely adored the room, it's just so stylish and cosy. The bathroom was beautiful too.
The Bund is right next to the hotel, shopping street is nearby, and also the metro station not too far.
I can only recommend this hotel.
