This opulent hotel is beautiful. The front desk staff were very courteous and helpful. Rooms are well appointed with lots of space! The pillows are hard however. Had I stayed longer, I would have requested a much softer pillow.

Have made several trips to Shanghai and stayed in high end hotels. Decided to try something different this trip. Chose this smaller hotel based on location. The price was right too. We were greeted (on a hot summer day) by helpful staff in a pleasant lobby with and a glass of lemon ice water as we checked in. We were upgraded without cost to a large room with great bathroom and four poster, king size canopied bed. Very inviting. During our stay, we enjoyed the morning breakfast buffet which reflected the tastes of its Chinese, Western and Japanese guests. Perhaps the best part was a small roof garden with tables where we took several meals, including a late evening supper. Great view of the lights of the city and the crazy, wonderful Bund area. It felt like an oasis in the midst of the concrete highrises. We will definitely return.
This hotel is a bit of a masterpiece. We stayed on the Fairmount gold floor which adds some personal service, use of the gold lounge, and very nice rooms. Every part of the hotel has been restored to the highest standards while keeping with the 1920s theme of the original. In some ways it is like going back in time, but with all the modern conveniences.
Breakfast was great in both the Gold Lounge and in the main hotel restaurant (which had views over the Pudong skyline)
The concierge services could not do enough for you. The view from the Cathay room restaurant and terrace is perhaps one of the finest views in the world. Shame however that the evening meal in there (while it was OK) was overpriced for what it was.
Right on Nanjing East road, the hotel is conveniently located. Walking distance away from the bund, you get there and after a short walk you really feel the Shanghai ambience hit you to the max! Hotel is in superb condition. Excelent breakfast at 30th floor with great views.
Checked in to the Peninsula around 8pm after a long day of travel from a different city in China. I was transiting out the next day so I didn't spend too much time on the property, but nonetheless the time I did spend was amazing. The rooms are beautiful, I had a nice meal and drink on the rooftop bar (which has amazing views of the Shanghai skyline) and grabbed breakfast in the lobby before my ride to the airport. Definately 5-stars plus at The Peninsula Shanghai.

Shanghai’s top tourist destination, Huangpu boasts the renowned shopping strip of Nanjing Road.
