Location and Service
I would recommend this hotel for both business and leisure. 18m indoor pool and gym were good. Baby sitting service outsourced was fantastic, our sitter was a preschool teacher. The Concierge service was second to none and nothing was ever a problem, even though we called them 15 times on the first evening. Located right on the Bund (my room didn't have a Bund view) and was a 50m walk to the waters edge, and on one of the biggest shopping streets in China (East Nanjing Road).
The location is great but most rooms have no views. The products provided is top of the line and the jazz bar, though did not play jazz when we were there, is a nice old time Shanghai fair.
The facility is older even after the renovation. The switches are so over-used that one is hard to read what the switch is for. The shower room insulation is old so that water leaks to the toilet area whenver the shower is used.
The Fairmont Peace Hotel Shanghai is Shanghai's legendary landmark in the heart of the Bund, since 1929. It is the iconic building located right in the center of the Bund where Shanghai's finest epicurean lifestyle is defined by all the award-winning restaurants and bars. It is also in the unrivaled shopping area on Nanjing Road, where it is the perfect place to explore Shanghai's spectacular scenery and vibrant lifestyle.
