The Fairmont Peace is a great piece of history and charm at the very centre of the Bund. The room I stayed in is quite the resuly of an almost-perfect interior architecture intervention. Besides the objective and outstanding amount of space (large hall, complete double bathroom, working space and bedroom wisely organised), decoration and charming 'extras' makes you feel really good and comfortable.
The entire hotel is an exemple for the quality of its spaces and for the sort of mid XXth century american-chinese fusion style. The breakfast salon, at the topest floor, is an amazing experience in itself! and the food complies with it.
The money I payed is also great news, specially when you compare with hotels just one block away, with half of the charm but the double of the price! (The Peninsula, for exemple).
