We had a wonderful stay at the beautifully restored (art-deco) Fairmont Peace Hotel. Location is second-to-none being right along the bund with a beautiful view of Pudong and Nanjing Rd. Rooms were also fantastic, in particular the bathrooms with rain showers and deep soaker tubs. Gold lounge and concierge staff were particularly helpful and eager to please. Attentive, friendly and...

Staying at Fairmont Peace Hotel is not only the best location on the Bund. It is also a travel back in the early 1920s with a high sense of modernity in the hotel. Highly dedicated staff and the feeling they know you as special guest since ever.

The Rooftop terrace is a great place to chill in the sunshine. The waiter, James is a fountain of local knowledge and really friendly . Def recommend a visit, even if it's just for a gin and tonic and to take in the stunning view of The Bund.

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
