Fairmont Peace Hotel On The Bund, Shanghai
Expert reviews

“One of the city’s most iconic hotels, the Fairmont Peace is cast in the warm, subdued tints of a bygone era. Expect all the luxuries of a top-class establishment, with rooms decked out in art deco elegance, from light fixtures down to coffee tables.”

Telegraph review:

“Shanghai’s Peace Hotel, the epicentre of the city’s Thirties hedonism, retains the swinging elegance of that era, but a sensitive £50m facelift has created a luxury hotel for the modern era: a calm and comfortable refuge from the lively Bund below. It is unique in a country not graced with historic properties.”
