“Splendid”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

A unique Art Deco hotel, with lots of charm, and ideally located both for the views on Pudong and on the Bund, and for touring Shanghai on foot. The rooms are beautiful and the public spaces amazing - all recently renovated. Service is very friendly. The reception is stunning. The pool is not huge but very classy.

What a wonderful hotel right off Bund in Shanghai. Sometimes older historic hotels suffer from lack of updates but the rooms & public spaces are all beautiful & breakfast buffet wonderful with lovely view over Shanghai harbor. Cannot comment as to value as hotel part of Avalon tour package.

A dream come true! This historic place on the Bund is wonderfully located, with wonderful views on Pudong, and amazing architecture inside. Great reception, clean room and nice Chinese restaurant on top floor. Longing to go back!

This hotel has been on my 'bucket list' for years. And it borders on Spectacular to me! The website really gives a good history of it. The Art Deco details are just Magnificent. The lobby, the lifts, the ceilings, the Jazz Bar (and its Elderly Jazz Band!)! The Lalique crystal bird 'circles' on floor 8 are Priceless Treasures! We visited the hotel's 'in house' Museum and traced its journey from the 20's..when it was built by Victor Sassoon....as Sassoon House. Wonderful History and the Museum includes many items from the hotel over the years. And the room we had, an Exec Grand, was just Wonderful. Not overly HUGE (but good sized) but Lovely .. with a black and white bathroom that is a Stunner...and LARGE! On floor 7..so a Lovely cityview across rooftops to some Classic Shanghai buildings. As well...we looked down on the start of Nanjing Road. PLUS...the hotel is Right on The Bund...for a GREAT Location!!! I can't see why Any-one would choose a 'courtyard room'...because the 'courtyard' is really more of a utilitarian lightwell that a 'real' courtyard...unless they don't intend to open their drapes. AND...the Exec Club is Also GREAT! Wonderful breakfast in elegant, classic surrounds. With a cook there to 'do' eggs. And the canapes and drinks are Fine...tho' the bubbly was an Italian Prosecco...which I find a little sweet. Their Free Drinks from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. is an Impressive Policy...the BEST I've found at any Fairmont we've been to. After a 'long day' being a Tourist...being able to just drop in for a cooling beer was Much Appreciated! Thanks to All the Crew in the Club who made us feel So Special! We hope to return, at some point!! The Fairmont has a Definite WINNER in this Classic Beauty!!!

Room Tip: As mentioned, I would choose a room overlooking Nanjing Road on a higher floor, rather than a 'c...

This is the most beautiful art deco hotel. Location on the Bund is excellent and looking across the Hungpu river to the Pearl tower was fabulous at night. The staff couldn't be more helpful, the rooms are spacious and spotless. The pool facilities are excellent. Food quality in the restaurants are just amazing. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

This is my second stay at the Peace hotel in Shanghai. This time with colleagues. The location is excellent allowing swift access to domestic and both international airports, and the train station. It is right on the Bund, so plenty of pics to be taken!!
Fairmont hotels have done a stupendous job in renovating what was an iconic Shanghai hotel. It looks absolutely stunning both inside and out. The rooms are all well appointed and finished in period style, but with all the modern conveniences we require nowadays.

Staff were really helpful, courteous and well presented, from the desk staff to the laundry and restaurant staff.

I have had the pleasure of staying in many of Shanghais' best hotels, and would, without hesitation, rate this as my absolute favourite.

I will be booking there next time i am in Shanghai, and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

Great hotel, superb place to stay!!

We stayed here and could not have been happier about our selection - location, history, world class elegance and great service. The rooms are so spacious and with all the details you can or cannot imagine. The bathroom are a room size and also they have a makeup little room. The breakfast was very good too with Chinese and western dishes.
