Some of the rooms have spectacular views over the Huangpu River and all are decorated in their original Art Deco style.
The hotel has 380 beautifully furnished rooms, all carefully preserved in their original 1930s style. In its heyday in the 30's the hotel was a base for many famous artists including Song Qingling, Charlie Chaplin, George Bernard Shaw and Noel Coward.
There are numerous restaurants, bars, banquet halls and business facilities in the hotel, all serving the high class cuisine one would expect from a hotel of this standard.The Hotel's Jazz Bar was once a hangout for Shanghai sophisticates. The band still play fantastic tunes today, although the bar itself has become more of a tourist joint than a trendy hang out and the "Cover Charge" to get into the place to enjoy this experience is a bit of a rip off!
Others facilities include a fully equipped gymnasium, beauty and massage parlor and foreign languages book store.
The Peace Hotel really is the only hotel of this kind in Shanghai. It offers a fascinating insight into Shanghai's history and is a charming and beautiful relic of times and lives, gone by.
