Being fairmont president club member, had spent many fairmont nights, this time was equally peaceful and satisfied in every way. The location is unbeatable, the history this grand dame carries were profond, and the service impeacable! Thank you for giving us the warm welcome after travel tens of thousand miles away from home, and feel we were home again!

This hotel is amazing! Clean, large rooms, great location, wonderful food. Located across the street from the Bund and on a main shopping street, the locations is perfect. Loved the older gentleman's band that played in the club in the evening. Everything was wonderful.

The Fairmont Peace Hotel is located on the Bund(street) in Shanghai. The skyline view from the Bund is just stunning. I think the Fairmont Peace hotel is beautiful and in the best location.

I stayed here at the start of my trip to China and at the end. I loved it. Right on the bund. The restaurant upstairs has amazing soup dumplings. Also the breakfast was so good that was served in the morning. I would and have told people I know to stay here because it's fantastic.

It never lacks of modern and luxury hotels in this town, but there is only one Peace Hotel. I stayed at a Fairmont Gold, loved the comfortable queen bed in the room and surprised how quiet the room could be at night (not easy to achieve considering that the room faces Nanjing Road).

The hotel is in an ideal location, on the corner of Nanjing Road and the Bund, so you only have to step outside and cross the road to walk with the crowds on the Bund, enjoying the buzz in the day time or the bustle and the light show across the river in PuDong at night. Equally, turn right and...

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
