“Beautiful Hotel, Perfect location for a short visit”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

I spent a long time researching a nice hotel for our Honeymoon in Shanghai, we wanted to stay somewhere special and this place completely exceeded our expectations, it was just beautiful. Our room was more like a mini suite with coffee area, a huge bathroom, walk in wardrobe and wonderful bedroom. The carpet was probably the nicest I've ever seen!

I nearly didn't book it feeling that it may be too 'old fashioned grandure' but it certainly was not, it was modern, very very clean and fresh with a wonderful 1920's feel. I had the spa pool to myself, and it was probably the most relaxed I've ever felt floating on my back watching a pair of koi carp kites flying above the pool skylights- it was almost as if the hotel had someone flying the kites just for me.

The location is perfect, especially if you don't have much time in the city but want to see as much as possibe. It's on the corner of Shanghai's two most famous streets, The riverside Bund with it's stunning skyline views and the main shopping street. It's right at the centre of everything you'll want to see in Shanghai.

Room Tip: Go for a Bund view room for a wonderful view of the city skyline which is beautifully lit at night...

Recently had the priveledge of staying at the Peace Hotel a couple of weeks ago. I stayed on the gold floor and have to say the guestrooms are absolutely beautiful and well designed. From the moment our group arrived till we left we were treated like truely appreciated guests and family. The staff on the gold floor, Cara, Stacey and the others could not have treated us any better. and that goes for all the staff at the hotel starting from the top down. I would stay at the hotel anytime I am in Shanghai. They truly went the extra mile in anything that was asked of them and even when you didn't ask they anticipated any of your needs. The hotel itself is beautiful and restored to its past history. Kudos to all involved! I do hope that I do return to Shanghai again to stay at the Peace.

My first stay with the Fairmont group and I must admit they've set high standards of service. It is in the nicest location with exceptional views of pudong skyline from just across the hotels. The jazz bar is amazing for all jazz lovers. The lobbly looks stunning and the view of pudong from the breakfast area is nice too. This place lives up to the expectation. Excellent quality gym equipment was a plus :)

We had stayed at the Peace Hotel in 1985 and at that time it was showing 55 years of wear and tear but still had the feel of a great hotel so with a trip to Shanghai planned and the knowledge that the hotel had had a complete makeover and was being operated by Fairmont we decided to spend our two nights there.
I don't think we could have found a better place to stay in all of Shanghai - the place oozes history plus style and class in equal quantities. The staff were excellent and any number of them would regularly greet us by our names "Mr and Mrs..." The in-house Chinese restaurant (there is also another serving western style food) was excellent and very good value compared with some others in the city. In a city that has totally transformed itself since our last visit, it was great to have a very familiar connection with our previous visit but with all the comfort and service of the best hotels anywhere in the world in 2012.

The Peace Hotel was just the right hotel for our weekend trip to Shanghai. What a great ambiance in a great location! The in-room features (e.g. Bose radio, TV in bathroom etc.) are ultra-modern and top-nodge quality and the service is as excellent as you expect it from a 5*+ hotel.

Room Tip: If you prefer a quiet room ask for one facing the courtyard
