Had a very expensive little meal in Victor's restaurant at the entrance, and later visited the bar to listen and watch the 'oldest Jazz Band in the World ' A fun experience but they wouldn't be playing anywhere else....admirable nonetheless.Beutiful interior and entranceway, very historic and important of course.

This historic hotel is well placed on the Bund at Nanjing Road--hard to beat! It is recently restored and is very luxurious. The rooms are huge and reasonable for where you are--about $200 a night. This is one of the world's classic hotels and you won't be disappointed. Lilly, one of the concierges, was amazing. She not only answered every... More

Whenever I go to The Bund I stop here. It just has maintained that yesteryear feel that is getting harder and harder to find in Shanghai. I don't care for the Jazz Band that plays every night (overpirced and unremarkable) but the lounge just outside the room is wonderful to sit in and have a drink while resting from the... More

It only takes a few minutes to stroll through the lobby, but it's a "blast from the past." And very beautiful. If you're already on the Bund, it's just a few steps from where you're standing.

This historic hotel has been beautifully renovated and is a great place to stop for a drink or afternoon tea. The floodlights at night are particularly good.

Take a walk down The Shanghai Bund in the evening and watch the lights come on illuminating the classic art deco buildings. One of the most iconic is the Peace Hotel. It's been in existence since 1929, and there's a historical gallery on Level 1 displaying the momentous events that have taken place there, together with famous people who lived... More

We stopped in to tour the lobby. There is so much history in this hotel and there are many things to read. Looked like a nice place for afternoon tea.

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
