Only for coffee

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 19, 2007

The Hotel is truely a mixture of ancient and modern decore built in a Gothic Style, it once was known for its luxury and magnificence.(not any more!!!).

We come to Shanghai often and usually stay at Pudong Shangi la which is fabulous but decided to try the Peace Hotel for a change. What a disappointment!! The only good thing about it is the location to the Bund and shops/markets. The Jazz Club is fabulous but very expensive, even coffee is so overpriced.

Our room had no airconditioning as it had broken down, we asked for a reduce fee because of it but in the Peace Hotel its sorry, sorry, sorry no...no...

The restaurant looks impressive but the service slow and ordinary.The worse thing is the staff so rude!!!! They need to have lessons at The Shangi la Hotel. We decided never to stay here again!! but I still stop here to visit the toilet and have coffee(even though I know I'm being ripped off) as least its clean and civilized.

*****
1906-2006
100 years old.
Historical buildings and furnitures.

super location! It takes only about 3 minutes to go to the Huangpu River, 15 minutes to go to the famous Jade Garten. Facing the developing Pudong new area and soaring Orient Pearl TV Tower over the Huangpu River, and next to the Nanjing Road Shopping Area (the famous traditional shopping center. only 2km from People’s Square.

The new building is opposite the old building, it looks very nice and modern, but it costs much more than the old one. The food in the old building was not so good and we had not so many choices.
