Beautiful historic hotel. The jazz bar was great and the nighttime view from the roof top terrace overlooking the Bund was fantastic. Great location, about 500 m walk from the Line 2 East Nanjing subway station (exit the station onto East Nanjing pedestrian street and walk towards the Bund, easy to spot the iconic hotel from the end of the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed at this hotel for two nights prior to a cruise. We had a club level room. We also booked a limo pick-up through the hotel, which probably led to the incredible check-in that we had. When we exited the limo, a staff member from the club level check-in met us at the car, guided us to our room...

First trip to Shanghai and stayed at the Fairmont with business colleagues. Great choice! They arranged a driver from the airport. Took me straight to my room upon arrival for check in, luggage delivery and review services and amenities. Service staff was top notch. Room was extremely comfortable and large. I had access to the 9th floor executive lounge where...

We arrived in Shanghai at the conclusion of a 10 day cruise. I have previously stayed in Fairmont Hotels and was even more amazed how wonderful this hotel was. I also chose the Fairmont Gold package which was excellent. Whilst it was 400 CNY per person/per night, the value and experience was incredible.

A stay in the Peace Hotel is a must for all those wanting to experience how Shanghai must have looked when it was fondly referred to as The Paris of the East. As soon as you step off the hustle bustle of Nanjing Road you are transported into a world of calm and opulence. We booked the Fairmont Gold package...

The hotel is located just off the Bund, in front of a fantastic sky-line. Very traditional, colonial hotel but the rooms are up to modern standards, with a touch of China. I enjoyed a vast room, good coffee machine, excellent bed. Service was top-notch. The breakfast room is a bit uncomfortable but the buffet is very generous. Excellent experience at...

Excellent attention to detail, lovely rooms that feel genuinely luxurious. The 9th floor lounge is well worth the extra cost and it pays for itself after a couple of days. The lobby is a bit chaotic because of its mixed use but as soon as you are away from there it is very peaceful.

The luxury of the hotel is endless, the location is fantastic, the staff and front desk are professional, however the food was ok.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Shanghai's legendary landmark since 1929, the Fairmont Peace Hotel, overlooking Shanghai's Huangpu River and the world famous Bund, boasts a history that overshadows that of any other hotel in the Far East. With its origins dating back more than a century, this beloved landmark served as a glamorous playground for the elite of Shanghai, where every night was an extravagant gala event and veritable Parisian fashion show. After our three year meticulous restoration, the romantic history and social significance which made the Fairmont Peace Hotel a Shanghai legend has returned with its timeless grandeur - and a new and contemporary spirit. Each guestroom and suite has been luxuriously decorated with opulent furnishings and modern amenities - providing the guest with an experience that is both indulgent and exquisite. ... more   less
