The Peace Hotel in Shanghai is one of the most renowned buildings and dates from the years of Western colonization. It is also without a doubt the most famous hotel in the city, although it is far less popular than it was in its prime. It is the epitome of Art Deco in this Chinese city and is located in front of the promenade of the Bund, where you can see countless skyscrapers.
In front of the surreal sites of new Shanghai, this hotel is a landmark for the city. With huge corridors and super comfortable rooms, common areas such as the pool, the restaurants, and the jazz bar are a must visit. The staff are really helpful and speak English, which is a rarity among Chinese establishments.
