Lonely Planet review
If anywhere in town fully conveys swish 1930s Shànghǎi, it’s the old Cathay, rising imperiously from the Bund. Renamed the Peace Hotel in the 1950s and reopened in 2010 after a protracted renovation, it’s reaffirmed its position as one of the city’s most iconic hotels. Rooms are decked out in art deco elegance, from light fixtures down to coffee tables.
The entire hotel is cast in the warm, subdued tints of a bygone era. Expect all the luxuries of a top-class establishment, though note that wi-fi and broadband access cost an extra ¥99 per day for guests. Standard rooms come without a view, deluxe rooms with a street view and suites with the coveted river view. The hotel is also home to a luxury spa, two upscale restaurants and several bars and cafes. Even if you’re not staying here, it’s worth popping in to admire the magnificent lobby (1929), or taking in an evening show at the jazz bar.
