Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund

Why We Love This Hotel :

Location: This stunning hotel is a nod to historical Shanghai, with its location in The Bund, Shanghai’s picturesque waterfront area - a particular tourist favorite.

History: The Bund features a number of historical buildings, many of which housed banks and trading houses from all over the world. The area still retains much of its historical charm.

Service: The Waldorf Astoria is known across the globe for its legendary service.

Guests shall not be disappointed with the variety of facilities the Waldorf has to offer, ranging from the luxurious spa to the hotel’s state-of-the-art recreation facilities and fitness center.


The hotel features a beautifully-appointed indoor pool, heated for guests optimal comfort.

Recreation and Fitness

Guests who wish to fit in their workout routine will make good use of the hotel's fully-equipped fitness center, open from 6am to 11pm daily. A refreshing and relaxing sauna and steam rooms are available for guests use as well.


The hotel has its very own top stylist on site, ready to make guests look and feel their best. The Chinese celebrity stylist Tony Li and his team are experts at creating individually-unique and chic looks for all occasions.


Guests may enjoy the benefits of traditional Chinese medicine, incorporated into the most modern spa techniques at this spa that promises to deliver visible results.

The Waldorf provides guests with a large variety of luxury dining options. It hosts six different restaurants and bars, from Salon de Ville, a luxury European tea room where guests may choose from an extensive selection of cheeses and a pleasing array of champagnes.

Grand Brasserie

The Grand Brasserie, with its lovely views of the hotel's meticulously-manicured interior courtyard, serves up classic European and authentic Chinese dishes. Breakfast is a particular guest favorite here. Groups and business colleagues may enjoy private dining in one of the restaurant's four private dining rooms for up to 10 guests.

Long Bar

This bar, restored to reflect the opulence and splendour of its early 20th century past, was voted Editor's Pick for hotel bars in the city. The bar takes its name from its long 110-foot bar top, once the longest in the Far East, made of fine raw mahogany. Guests may enjoy imported cigars and innovative bar food to the beats of the bar's resident DJ.
