Waldorf Astoria
Shanghai

Located in the very centre of Shanghai’s famous Historic Bund, the Waldorf Astoria is one of our favourite hotels in the city. Spread between a historic Bund wing and a contemporary tower, there is a sense of flow that successfully combines the old and the new, maximising the best of both. River facing rooms and suites offer some of the best views over the Bund River and all are spacious, very comfortable and have been tastefully designed in a classic style and clean but warm palette. The marble bathrooms are especially indulgent. A range of good dining options and buzzy public spaces make you feel that you are staying in a Shanghai institution, without any stuffiness or nostalgia. Other facilities include a luxurious spa, heated indoor swimming pool, gym, hair salon and hotel guest library and lounge. However our favourite plus point of this hotel is its location: Central Shanghai can be visited on foot from your doorstop.

Client Testimonials

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
