The Experience

The Peninsula Shanghai

A “World’s Best Business Hotel” on an Unrivalled Location

Named as “World’s Best Business Hotel” by Travel + Leisure, The Peninsula Shanghai is located on an unparalleled location in Shanghai.  As the only new build in over 70 years on The Bund, The Peninsula enjoys stunning views along the historic Bund, across the Huangpu River to Pudong and also the gardens of the former British Consulate located next door, which give a welcome green aspect to the busy cityscape.


The Peninsula Shanghai heralds the return of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, to Shanghai, where it owned and operated four of Shanghai’s most celebrated “grand hotels” in the first half of last century.  The company – and majority shareholding family The Kadoories – has a long history in Shanghai, and thus this “homecoming” is a particularly important aspect for the company, which alsooffers unique heritage aspects which no other hotel in Shanghai enjoys.

A True “Sense Of Place” 

In keeping with glorious heritage as “the Paris of the East” and its stunning Art Deco buildings and interiors, the design of the hotel is created to reflect a true “sense of place”, together with a collection of locations celebrating Shanghai’s history as a maritime and aviation centre, while also referencing the city’s glamorous past with Salon de Ning, Yi Long Court Chinese Restaurant and Sir Elly’s restaurant and bar – and The Peninsula Lobby.  

Superb facilities

The 235-room Peninsula Shanghai is intimate and private which offers an extensive collection of guest facilities, including five outlets, a 24-hour fitness centre, a magnificent swimming pool with outside sun terrace, an award-winning Peninsula Spa and a luxury car fleet with bespoke Rolls-Royce, BMW Peninsula Edition and Vintage 1934 Rolls-Royce Phantom. All rooms and suites offer an additional spacious dressing room, which includes ample space for luggage, a full-length valet box for discreet delivery as well as a nail dryer!

Cutting-edge but Personal Technological Features

Guest convenience is paramount through the hotel’s intuitive and discreet in-room technologies, available in each room and suite through the innovative VOIP telephone functions allowing guests to make free international and local calls, complimentary wired and wireless Internet access, three-in-one office automation, iPOD docking, multi-media card reader, independent humidity control and Nespresso coffee machine and tea making facilities.

The Peninsula Shanghai, on the historic Bund, offers spectacular views of the Huangpu River, Pudong and Shanghai’s skyline. Blending art deco glamour with traditional Asian opulence, each spacious guestroom features private bedroom, bathroom and dressing areas, with a privacy door that allows the bedroom to be enclosed. Five award-winning restaurants and bars include renowned Sir Elly’s and Yi Long Court. The iconic Peninsula Afternoon Tea is served in the elegant marble lobby. Shop for luxury brands in the Peninsula Arcade, or indulge in The Peninsula Spa. International VoIP phone calls and 24-hour access to the Fitness Centre are complimentary.
