Haven't seen much of anything about it so any feedback on the Bulgari? Currently booked at the Peninsula and now thinking of extending Shanghai stay, but wondering if we should just extend our Peninsula stay or try the Bulgari for the additional nights. I think the hard product looks stunning (and tbh more our "style" than the Peninsula), but the Peninsula seems to be the benchmark here. Any feedbacks/thoughts/reviews, especially service-wise? Thanks

I booked two sets of clients in June/July just after they had opened. Both were upgraded at booking, treated well and loved the hard product. The service was still being refined but no major issues. Clients mentioned it wasn't the easiest place to get taxis and generally took a few minutes to find one. Although, I'd say getting a taxi by the Bund isn't always easy either. I think it's probably worth trying it out and things should be running even better by now.

might also consider amanfayun , or amanyangyun if in a pool villa

could also see if peninsula would do discounted upgrade to keep you

presume bvlgari doesnt publish one-category upgrade to top 2 suites

Anyone have any thoughts about which property would be best if traveling with two small children?

If you care about location, the Portman is better.

Again, the hotel might be great, but the location sucks.

Perhaps it didnít work for you, but the end of the Bund location worked extremely well for us.

Is staying on the bund like staying in Times square? Is that why someone would say the location sucks?

I think it all depends on your preferences. I'm originally from Shanghai, so I personally feel the location of Portman (Nanjing West street) is more like Times Sq., and I'd rather stay in a more residential area but that's just me. Bund is also touristy, but you're there as a tourist so I don't see anything wrong with that. Between the Bund and Nanjing Rd. though I'd choose the Bund for the fantastic view. Just my 2c.

I’ll say the opposite.
- acceptable location
- bad service

I’ll NEVER stay there again with especially with a Family
