"We really enjoyed our stay here, not just for the location and amenities but for the level of service and hospitality we were constantly shown. From the moment we checked in, we were greeted with care and warmth. Wayne at the front desk, upgraded us to a lovely room and even gave our daughter vouchers for the play area because he noticed it was her birthday. Another concierge chatted with my husband about his 2 sons and made us all feel right at home. We have a very friendly 1 year old and the staff, from the doorman to the breakfast waitstaff always took their time to make us feel welcome. We came back to our room while the aiyi was cleaning and the baby was so curious about her and she ended up playing with her and even running out to get a child’s bathrobe for my other daughter and an XL bathrobe for my husband without being asked. It was the level of care and hospitality that really stood out for me. The view from our room was amazing and our children sat at the window for hours watching the boats sail down the river. Easy access to so many places, a nice pool, good breakfast and nice place to stay overall. "

"Overall good stay. Hotel was not too full which made the breakfast even more enjoyable but it was quite nice the spread. Rooms were very comfortable. We also had a fantastic Chinese set meal dinner at the Chinese restaurant which was truly exceptional. Fantastic service too. Sherry Wen at the front desk was very professional and clearly showed her expertise and even advised us on their hotel plans for the upcoming CNY. Pool was nice too and the unique experience we had was that we got to use the jacuzzi as a family as normally in China the jacuzzis are installed in the respective changing rooms.

"My wife and I booked a Gold room for our wedding anniversary, and we were blown away by how well we were treated by Nana and all of the staff executive lounge staff. They went out of their way to make our stay and the occasion special for us, and we felt everything at this hotel was absolutely top notch! The Fairmont is a big step up from other luxury hotels in Shanghai. The service throughout the premises is the most attentive and friendly we have seen at a big hotel in China, and the prime location, decor, and well-known history are added bonuses. We enjoyed a drink and watching the oldest jazz band at the bar downstairs, and had a nice dinner at Dragon Phoenix. We appreciated that you can enjoy a lively bar and a nice dinner without leaving the hotel; usually it’s difficult to get one of these during your stay. We have stayed at other reputable hotels in Shanghai since the pandemic began, but we often find the facilities to be limited, the rooms slightly worn, and the food and service mediocre. However, the food both in the lounge and at the breakfast buffet was very fresh and varied during our stay at the Fairmont, and the room appeared to be meticulously maintained. If you are wanting a true 5-star experience, this hotel will definitely not disappoint. Thank you again for the memorable experience!"

Reasons to Recommend: One of Shanghai's most iconic and legendary historical landmarks, the Fairmont Peace Hotel boasts a history that overshadows that of any other hotel in the Far East. With origins dating back more than eight decades, this beloved landmark once served as the social heart of the city and a glamorous playground for the elite.

"The hotel is spacious and luxurious. Even the simplest rooms offer the most comfortable beds, smart decor and spacious bathrooms. There are two restaurants - neither are cheap but both are excellent. The breakfasts are very expensive but if you order the full American style that kept me going until dinner so it was worth it! On a night with noisy and disruptive neighbours the hotel swiftly and kindly moved my room so I could have a restful night - Vivian Gu’s customer service was A*. Iris always made my meal times enjoyable - amicable and swift service in the Feast restaurant. Christopher on the concierge organised taxis to and from my destinations - to ensure there were no language difficulties he arranged for me to simply say ‘hello hello’ to the driver when I wanted to return and I was brought back to the hotel. I really can’t fault the service or comfort here. On the downside - it’s remote and not easy to get a didi so you have to pay both there and back to go one way (80rmb =8km) - by western costs this is affordable but expensive if you’re used to Shanghai/china prices. If you have your own transport - there are no issues obviously. Sadly the spa is no longer in operation either which is a pity. I would recommend this for a getaway and luxuriate weekend - certainly recharged my batteries abs I hope to be back during lavender season. "

"For the amount of money I paid to stay for two nights, I feel it wasn't worth it due to the fact it was only myself. If I had a husband and children with me, it would have been worth the money. The breakfast buffet included is pretty good and you get to see the main Disney characters. The close proximity and the fact guests have priority and early entrance to the Disney Park, is fantastic, which made my stay here worth while for this one time. Also the view I had of the lake and Castle was great. Again, this hotel is probably better for families. "

"I stayed in the executive panorama suite for 2 nights (2502). The room was nice and spacious. The hotel`s location was excellent as it was very close to the jingan temple, bars, restaurants, and shopping areas.The service was great and most staff speak English. I even forgot some stuffs but they were made secure and safe until I pick them up the following day. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not so big but you'll always find something for you. I had the Christmas eve dinner as well and everything was fantastic, including the gingerbread cookie giveaway. The only thing that made my stay a bit uncomfortable is that my room was right behind the lift. I felt like a subway is passing-by whenever the elevators move up and down. However, I can still say that in general, the hotel and my stay was great. Will just try to get another room next time. "
