The Bund Riverside Hotel, Shanghai

The Bund Riverside Hotel, Shanghai

We were due to arrive in Shanghai in the afternoon but due to a cancelled flight we spent all day at Xian airport (a very boring airport with very few seats and a lot of people) and only arrived around midnight. We were planning to take the high speed Maglev from the airport into Shanghai, however this had closed by the time we arrived. So we had to take a taxi. The road from the airport to the city is long and straight and walled on both sides like a race track, there wasn't a lot of traffic as it was so late, so our driver decide to put his foot down and go very fast. We were very scared - there wasn't even any seatbelts in the taxi. But fortunately we made it to the hotel safe and intact!
This was a riverview room which promised great views of the Huangpu River and the Shanghai skyline. When we first arrived we couldn't see it - we thought "riverview" indicated a view of the bit of dirty river with building works going on right next to it that we could just see when looking out of the window to the left. We later discovered it had just been a foggy night and the room did in fact have an amazing view....!

Peace Hotel (formerly Sassoon House and Cathay Hotel) was Shanghai's first American Art Deco skyscraper built in 1929 - Architects: Palmer and Turner. Built originally to house the headquarters of Sir Victor Sassoon's company ED Sassoon Ltd, Sassoon himself lived in a penthouse under the copper pyramid roof. The building is on a wedge shaped site so has two long wings meeting at the Bund frontage. The Cathay Hotel was at the time the most luxurious in the east - Noel Coward completed the draft of 'Private Lives' there in 1930.
