More about Waldorf Astoria Shanghai On the Bund

More about Waldorf Astoria Shanghai On the Bund

Waldorf Astoria Shanghai On the Bund is located in the heart of the celebrated Bund, a city boulevard that runs alongside the Huangpu River and one of the most photographed postcard scenes of city. The hotel is easily accessible by subway and is directly linked to Yan’an Road, which tunnels under the Huangpu River linking Pudong New Area, the financial and commercial hub of modern China. Nanjing Road, a centre of retail and commerce in Shanghai for more than a century, is also within walking distance. An array of three restaurants, two lounges, and a bar brings together the epitome of fine dining and chic socializing. From all-day dining and authentic Chinese to Eastern specialties, the restaurants serve up a good variety to suit every palate. For light meals, meetings-over-drinks and afternoon teas, the two lounges – including The Peacock Alley that will be the talk of town like its namesake in New York, are ideal options. The Long Bar, renowned to have the longest bar counter in the Far East back in the 1910s, will be perfect for business entertainment and to chill out in the evenings. Waldorf Astoria Spa being rated 5-star by Forbes Travel Guide on 2016 and 2017.

This is what a true five star property should be”

Excellent service, phenomenal rooms, fantastic location

The Waldorf Astoria Shanghai has renewed my faith in five star properties. Countless establishments the world over claim to be five star, but very few actually deliver. The WAS is everything one would expect from a top-end property. Pros: - The rooms are absolutely fantastic. They are huge and feature a multitude of modern luxuries. For example, centralized control of room lighting, AC, drapes, and alarms from a room automation console; TV built in to the mirror in the bathroom; web-enabled TV; and IT connections hub with cables included. The furnishings and amenities are all also top notch, as one would expect from Waldorf properties. - Service is excellent. Everyone we encountered in the hotel was very polite and extremely helpful. - Location on the Bund. The location cannot be beat for views, and proximity to tourist attractions such as Ya Yaun. Cons: - Entrance is obscure. The entrance to the hotel is from a small access lane that is not prominently marked. Not one cab driver was able to find the hotel without guidance from me. All-in-all, if you're going to Shanghai and are accustomed to staying five star, then you really need not look any further than the Waldorf Astoria.

Excellence on the Bund”

Waldorf Astoria one of the two best heritage hotels right on the Bund. Obviously impeccable with large very luxury rooms. Recommend the river view rooms as you have a fantastic view of all the Pudong sky rises. The Long Bar is a must to visit to enjoy a drink and some jazz music. If you want to dine out, I recommend Lost Heaven that is just a short walk south (to the right when exiting on the bund side). Wonderful experience!

Location, Services, Spacious and Comfy Room

It was a pleasant stay in Waldorf Astoria. We stayed for 3 night. The location is just across the Bund, Hotel services are superb, check-in and check-out time are really fast. They prepared babycot as requested and they thoughtfully provide baby's bath as well. Towels and amenities are generously provided in room. Extra pillow and blanket also available in room. Room are spacious and comfy, bathroom are great. Breakfast comes with extra RMB150 per person (have to inform them 1 day before to get this special price), great breakfast choices are provided. Totally recommended!

Staff, room, decor

I am a seasoned traveller and have stayed in luxury hotels across the world. The Waldorf (we had 3 rooms, was an unique experience. The very epitome of service quality and decor. It is immaculate throughout, part being the old british Club of Shanghai, the other part its modern extension. They are seamless, creating the impression of a grand country house transposed into the heart of Shanghai and a few minutes easy walk to the bund with its iconic skyline. I loved every minute of it

In-room gadgets, service

I was really looking forward to my stay at the Waldorf and it didn't fail to live up to my expectations. The service at check-in was efficient and warm, the room was beautiful with lots of gadgets and clever features, the location was excellent, right on the Bund. The food at breakfast was lovely although the service was a little over-attentive. We had lunch in the Grand Brasserie and again the food was great as was the service. We had drinks in the Long Bar one evening and unfortunately it was quiet and lacking in atmosphere but the service was excellent. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for a single night over CNY and absolutely loved it. The hotel itself is of a superb standard - rooms spacious, clean, luxurious, with a great view to the Bund. The breakfast was excellent with a huge choice on offer and top class service. Lovely fresh juices to chose from and well laid out. We also utilized the spa and gym which were fine. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Waldorf and will certainly do it again some time. It was expensive - but for that special occasion its most definitely worth it.

Service, beautiful rooms

We had an amazing stay at the Warldorf on the Bund, it was truly magical. The feeling of this hotel is grand yet boutique, every last detail has been specifically thought out, the design was beautiful. The rooms were a delight, and had a very boutique feel. The staff were so attentive and helpful, a doorman even walked us to a restaurant over the road, because we didn't know where it was, covering us with an umbrella. The breakfast was wonderful, with a lot of choice and outstanding food. It is in an excellent location to explore The Bund and surrounding areas.

Probably the best ever seen in SHanghai”

Central, elegant, amaazing...

Well people. I have been visiting more than 50 hotels in Shanghai along the years and this is, so far, the best I had. It is exactly on the bund, few minutes walking from Nanjing Road and in a magic atmosphere. Rooms a big but mainly extremely elegant. Nothing is out of place. Toilet marble matches the wall color, that matches the paintings that match the pillow tissue... Lobby and all the adjacent saloons are breathtaking and the attitude of people around the hotel is super. It is not cheap, this, of course is the counterpart: but worths every cent you spend. Oh, I was about to forget: don't miss the breakfast!

On my reruns after few years ”

As a repeated guest of Waldorf Astoria, I love this hotel and this time tried to bring families. However, I feel on my return this trip , seems like hotel is cutting cost in everywhere. The staff in tele service definitely not enough to answer the calls - every time I called, took more than a min or 2 to have someone answers. The cookies ( was really a good touch) is gone by the coffee side and many more other small things I noticed of change .. But on the positive side, staffs are still provide fantastic service . Despite the reservation staff told me to contact Agoda by myself, The DM Jackie helped me and housekeeping staff Nini was super helpful when we requested for baby bed and tooth brushes. The concierge team was friendly and professional. Overall a good stay and will be back again . Many thanks

Was a great hotel to stay at Very good location on the Bund and lovely swimming pool and gym facilities The restaurant service was not nearly up to scratch My mother and I went to eat at the hotels restaurants at 9 pm at night only to find that not a single one of the hotels restaurants would serve food at that time We resorted to in room dining which was an absolute disgrace We did complain and received a credit and apology from the manager but really this is totally unacceptable from a 5 star hotel Breakfast was ridiculously expensive so we chose to walk to the nearby 5 star western hotel and eat there which had a cafe and numerous restaurants to choose from I feel that a hotel of the standard of the Waldorf needs to modernise its approach to dining especially for westerners travelling to china As more food choices and dining Choices are needed if wanting to compete with other 5 star hotels as it would influence my choice of hotel for future stays

Location. Features

I must start by saying I was a bi miffed. When I booked I thought I would be staying in an old hotel. I ended up in the annex which is brand new. That said by the end of my stay I could not have cared less. I really liked this hotel. Ace bed. Many features, having a wireless keyboard for the internet was great, though the internet was pretty slow so beyond emailing it was not much use. The TV in the bathroom mirror was great and the self open/flushing loo lots of fun. My own gas mask in the wardrobe was a nice touch as well... The staff were very helpful and the hotel was nice, especially when you wandered in to the old bit. The bar I went to saw packed with ex-pats so I took a swerve on that one. Overall a great place to stay and a hop skip to the delights of the bund.

great service, great location and great accommodation

one thing that WA differs with other luxury hotels is their service, they offer a very detail and personal oriented service so that we could feel as if we are staying at home. One thing that's regrettable is the wi-fi connection, it's almost useless. You can actually do some browsing via their flat screen TV in the room, but if you wish to connect your gadgets with their wifi I recommend you to do it via cable-plug they provide on the working desk Great location too since it's location right in front of "the bund", Chanel, Rolex and many luxury stores is in your walking distance
