Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2014

My family and I did not stay at the hotel, but we visited the long bar, which is the longest bar in the world at 39 meters. We were welcomed with superb service and delicious drinks. The bartender, Sid, was fantastic! He provided great hospitality, entertainment, and beverages. I absolutely recommend this bar, and make sure you ask for Sid!

Everything about this hotel was first class. Truly amazing in every respect. I stayed in original building in a river view suite. The room was gorgeous -- more so than the comparable suite in the new building.

I have been to many 5 Star hotels, but this one has been the best.
The bedrooms are high tech with electric curtains and bathroom with so many gadgets (TV behind 2 way mirror, LCD window from bathroom to bedroom that grays out when activated to obscure view, electric bidet toilet etc.).
Buffet style breakfast area was great. :-)

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the river.

The Waldorf Astoria Shanghai continues to provide impeccable accommodations and service. Each time I stay, I am impressed by its luxurious accommodations and atmosphere. The floral displays are beautiful and the hotel common areas exude conservative luxury. From its crystal chandeliers and marble flooring to the intricate wainscoting and rich fabrics, no detail is overlooked. The rooms are beautifully decorated, extremely clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly, courteous and always helpful. This was my fourth visit to the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai and I would not stay anywhere else. It has become my home away from home in Shanghai. Thank you for a wonderful visit!

This is by far the nicest hotel I found in China, and is high on my list of excellent accommodations throughout the world. The hotel is understatedly luxurious. The facilities are impeccable, the staff incredibly attentive without being overbearing, and the restaurant/bar options also quite wonderful. It's very well located on the Bund and many rooms have an excellent view. Don't skip the hotel breakfast-- it's buffet style, but honestly one of the best hotel breakfasts I've ever had, with made to order options included. Truly a gem of a hotel-- it sets a high bar!

Room Tip: You will not regret spending a little extra to get a room with a view of the Bund. A worthy splurge.

The location, food, decor and ambiance make this property amazing, but the service puts it over the top. For business and leisure, the Waldorf is an outstanding place to stay in Shanghai! During your visit to Shanghai, make sure to walk the Bund, enjoy the lights at night, explore the Glamour Bar (M on the Bund), taste some Dim Sum and of course bask in the wonderul gardens of the area.

Easily the best hotel that I have stayed in China. Outstanding in terms of quality of service, and outstanding in terms of infrastructure and location. The staff are very well trained, unlike in hotels in Beijng for example. English spoken widely and well throughout the hotel. Rooms are excellent (I paid for a largish room) it was expensive but worth it. I did not eat in any of teh restaurants, so I cannot attest to that quality, but I did have breakfast, which was quite extensive. The toilets inside the room are very new age....technology driven. Very clean, very superior hotel overall
