“Beautiful hotel”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

Stayed for 5 nights and we were very impressed with the hotel. High attention to details in the decor, clean and new rooms, nice exercise and spa department. The Jazz Club is also worth a visit. Good value for money and excellent location.
The Cathay Room restaurant has good food, and just as beautiful veiw as other more expensive restaurants at the Bund.

Room Tip: If deluxe room, skip the view, it is not of the Bund anyway.

I stayed there with my family for a week. Everyone thought everything about this hotel was excellent. We thought it was better than the royal meridian and st. Regis. I highly recommend the peace hotel.

My girlfriend, friend and I stayed at the Fairmont for a night back in May. The Fairmont is a lovely hotel, the staff are all very attentive and polite, and will help you out in any way they can. For such a nice hotel, we also got a pretty low rate, so we were very pleased.
The high tea was excellent, and I highly recommend it. However, everything was very, very rich, so if you're having stomach problems it might not be the best course of action.
The room was spacious and beautiful, and indeed the entire hotel had lovely flower arrangements and smelled wonderful. The exercise room, spa, and pool were also very nice, even though we didn't get the chance to use them.
The only problem I had with the stay was that the wi-fi Internet was not free. It may seem like a trivial issue, and I understand high-end hotels often hide small charges here and there, but not having free wi-fi just doesn't sit right with me. In this day and age, when Internet is everywhere, it's just ridiculous. We stayed at budget hostels all throughout China that had free wifi, and for a high-class hotel not to have it just left a bad taste in my mouth.
Other than that, an excellent place to stay in Shanghai.

This is the third time in one year that I have stayed at Fairmont Peace Hotel in the Bund district of Shanghai. It is true there was a learning curve from the reopening until now. The staff is receiving the proper training and service is a priority with everyone working at the Peace hotel. If you want a great hotel near to the downtown action and the water front the Peace is the place for you to stay at.

Traditional, spacious, beautiful suites with charming modern touches. Bathroom extraordinaire! Well-trained but somewhat silent staff, perhaps due to language insecurities, but their English beat my Mandarin hands down! Excellent location on the Bund. Dining was a treat, with many options and consistently fine food.

We stayed here, with 2 rooms for our family of 5, at the beginning and end of our 3 week trip to China. This is what "A 5 Start Hotel" should always mean. The rooms were beautiful and, even in busy Shanghai, quiet. The public areas are the most perfect example of art deco (a decorating period I never really liked before, but after seeing it done here, appreciate) I've ever seen.
But, of course what makes this hotel extraordinary is the service. Needs were anticipated and expectations exceeded, but the staff was relaxed and friendly, not obsequious.
The pool and spa were beautiful. The upstairs restaurants were excellent, with excellent service. The Chinese restaurant was extraordinary.

The Fairmont Peace Hotel is Shanghai was a wonderful place to stay. The room was amazingly spacious and attractive with a huge bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was impeccably clean. The service at this hotel was excellent! This historic hotel, which has been completely modernized without losing its early 20th century charm, is conveniently located adjacent to the Bund and within close walking distance of the Nanjing Road shopping street. This was a great, high quality place to stay in downtown Shanghai. It was expensive, but it was outstanding.
