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.

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.

Hotel is on the Bund across the river from the TV antenna and Shanghai Tower. Beautiful views and great service. 1920s era style with great rooms. Bed is very comfortable. Bathroom w shower and classic claw foot tub. Staff was very attentive and responsive. Close to modern 8 floor shopping center and small shops. 3 blocks to Metro. Look forward to staying here again.
On a three city tour of China this was the most expensive accommodation.
On the site it looks ok but actually the decoration is getting tired. We had a 3 bedroom apartment which was fine for the family, however the equipment provided was limited compared to our previous apartment in Xi'an. There was no cutlery, no ironing facility, no pans and only limited crockery, though there was the facility to pay extra for use of these items on request. The view from our 24th floor window was spectacular.
Staff at the desk were ok but not so eager to please as elsewhere. The pool was ok but again looked a little dated and you have to wear a swimming cap to swim, available for a price.
Location is good between the Bund and the French Concession areas with restaurants a short walk of varying level and a supermarket just near the entrance.

Located in downtown Shanghai, this hotel is one km (0.5 miles) from People's Square, and 1.5 km (1 mile) from The Bund.More
The hotel was delightful and excellently located. It is very close to the shopping area and many attractions near the bund. It is also conveniently located next to the subway stop on the same line at the PVG airport. The only downside was that the hotel concierge would refuse to book tickets to shows like the circus world, and was very pushy in trying sell tickets to attractions that the hotel had "connections" with.
The prefect choice for a first time visitor from The United States. Close to some top notch sights but still fairly quiet for big city. The staff is kindest and most accomadating group of people I have ever encountered.
Shanghai’s top tourist destination, Huangpu boasts the renowned shopping strip of Nanjing Road. Another drawcard is The Bund, a mile-long riverside stretch on Zhongshan Road that encompasses 52 buildings representing various Colonial and modern architectural styles. Shanghai Museum, Grand Theatre, People’s Park, and People’s Square are also in this neighbourhood.
