Hotels in Shanghai

Shanghai boasts many fabulous hotels, and always has done - the Peace Hotel and the Astor were legendary in their heyday and have been recently refurbished to recapture their leading places and fight off competition from newcomers such as the Peninsula. However, the Central Hotel is a very good alternative to these ultra-glamorous venues, and offers guests comfort, a wide range of facilities and a great location.

Broadway Mansions Hotel

Broadway Mansions Hotel, Shanghai

A landmark hotel on Shanghai’s famous Bund close to Waibaidu Bridge and Suzhou Creek, and for decades the tallest building in Shanghai at 19 storeys, Broadway Mansions was built in 1934 by a British architect in Art Deco style, like the American ‘stepped’ skyscrapers popular at the time. It features a ‘pub’ bar with antique snooker table, lobby café, tailor, beauty salon, art shop, spa and gym, French restaurant with Bund and river views, a Chinese restaurant for Shanghainese and Huaiyang cuisine (Deng Xiaoping once said, “The Huaiyang Cuisine in the Broadway Mansions Hotel Shanghai is one of the best in China”), and a Japanese restaurant. Rooms have iron and ironing board, hairdryer, safe, LCD computer TV with wireless keyboard and internet access.

Astor House Hotel

Astor House Hotel, Shanghai

The guest book at the landmark Astor House Hotel reads like a Who’s-Who of the twentieth century – Einstein, Charlie Chaplin, Marconi, the Duke of Edinburgh and Bertrand Russell for example – and it’s history is equally impressive – the first electric lights in China were switched on here, the first telephone call in China was made from here, the Shanghai Stock Exchange was launched here in 1990. Built in the mid nineteenth century close to the Bund and Nanjing Road, it was the first western-style hotel in the city and has remained one of the most elegant and atmospheric ever since.

Peace Hotel

Peace Hotel, Shanghai

An American, 1930s-style building right on the Bund and Shanghai’s first high-rise, the Peace Hotel is perhaps the most famous hotel in China, and when it opened in 1929 it was certainly the most luxurious –the Cathay Hotel, as it was then, was called “the Number 1 Mansion in the Far East”. Its most famous feature is its Jazz Bar where a veteran band of musicians have played for decades and entertained visitors such as Presidents Reagan and Carter. After a 3-year renovation, it reopened in 2010 as the Fairmont Peace Hotel, a sister to The Savoy in London.
