Absolutely absurd staff! Ludicrously old Property! Stay away by any means necessary and avoid!”
Our entire experience has been a total nightmare from check in to check out. We are seriously appalled at how the hotel treats its guests. The receptionist laughed at me when I was trying to check in after a tiring journey. I didn’t feel welcome. We changed rooms 6 times! The server who took our order came with really bad breath. Couldn’t sleep because of how bad our stay has been. The WiFi internet disconnects automatically every time you lock the device. This is extremely annoying when trying to get work done. At check in, none of our requests were even acknowledged. The receptionist was rude and her duty manager was even more rude with a serious attitude problem. She kept giving us dirty looks. The rooms are old and smell like smoke, period. There is no denying that. It is obvious that it is from the furniture and old carpets with cigarette holes in them. All the furniture was damaged with scratches, marks, and cracks all over. The walls had stains and aren’t acceptable.

A true flagship hotel”
Room, Amenities, Service
I have stayed in numerous 5-star hotels but my stay at the Peninsula Shanghai has highlighted the difference between a standard 5-star hotel, and a flagship hotel. The grounds and common areas are beautifully and tastefully designed. There is great attention to detail, and a lot of elements which please the senses while avoiding being gaudy which happens too often in these Shanghai properties. The pool, gym, and spa facilities are the best I've ever been to. Service at the pool is attentive without being intrusive. The design is immaculate. Music is played underwater in the pool. The rooms are the best part of the stay. Beds are some of the most comfortable I've slept in. In-room facilities are perfect. I also had the pleasure of using the inroom printer for work. Set-up is a breeze and convenience is unmatched. Even the most basic room is comparable to junior suites of other 4-star, 5-star hotels. The hotel is located at the end of the bund. This is an excellent location as it is further away from the very busy, tourist heavy areas and is significantly quieter than properties 2 or 3 blocks towards the center. If you are staying in Shanghai, and you have the budget, stay here.

Great retro deco, the past and future experience”
The Service is excellent, from receptist to housekeeper staff, they cater to my every need. The location is great...the view on the Bund and Pudong is spectacular. The Room itself is top standard.
Great experience at a top class hotel. Only set back is me and my nephew paid top prices for two standard rooms and they put us at the back. Only my room has a partial view...my nephew has a room in the back and that is very claustrophobic. Should go there when it is not convention season so you can have more room choices.

Great hotel but still can find issues”
A lot of attention paid to minute details in the rooms renovation. Staff service is really great. Excellent location.
The hotel is great - one of the best in shanghai no doubt. Except when it comes to standard as high as the peninsula it is disappointing to find the bathtub drainage not working, which foil our attempt to go back for a second and third soak. The swimming pool. First of all be careful when walking along the pool side. For some reason no thought was spent to consider the slippery marble floor with no easy drainage. So water accumulate and staff have to come back to remove water periodically. Even when staff are at it the slightly wet floor is a trap. What were they thinking? Second the pool being indoor is a little cold. It's good for the swimmers but kids who play in the water get a little chilly after a little while. Then there is the legendary (the legend probably came from the Hong Kong flagship property and it is being replicated in shanghai) peninsula afternoon tea. On weekends it becomes such a popular "thing to do, place to be seen" thing for (newly) rich locals that the lobby cafe transforms into a bit of a zoo (or Chinese wet market) - point is its crowded and noisy and it's outright unpleasant. Takes away from the whole peninsula experience to be honest. I'm seriously thinking of writing the general manager a friendly letter to talk about these but have been too busy...
