Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights few years back. Location was excellent, the busy Nanjing Road Shopping Street was just in front of the hotel. There were plenty of shops and eateries along the street. Walking distance to the Bund too. However, guest service still had room for improvement - they were polite but not friendly. Free Wifi only... More

This hotel is located right off Nanjing Road, a major shopping street. It's about a 20 minute walk from the Bund. The restaurant was very good. Although service was slow, the food was very good. Bread that tasted like European bread and was truly tasty. The concierge staff were helpful and got us a cab, which took some doing. Great... More

The Sofitel is in a fantastic location very close to Nanjing Road East station (I took exit 4 and it's almost around the corner). There's a Haagen Dazs at the entrance. It is a few minutes walk from the people's square stop of the Big Bus hop on hop off bus tour. If you do the bus tour, exit the... More

This hotel is right on the main pedestrian street in Shanghai. Easy access to Metro or walk to the BUND. In the evening you do not need a taxi as you are in the middle of all the action. Great places to eat or just window shop in the evening. The room that includes breakfast is the best deal as... More

We stayed here three nights in July for holiday. As others have pointed out, the location at Nanjing Road os perfect for shoppers but bot for those who enjoy solitude. Our status as Platinum members in the Accor loyalty program was recognized before arrival and we were upgraded to a suite with corner views. The breakfast spread in the lounge... More

This hotel is located on E. Nanjing Road, the shopping street of Shanghai. So yes, it is very convenient to stay here. Foods, shoppings, etc. Subway line 2 is just 2-minute walk from hotel entrance, very much convenient to go everywhere. Room is renovated and very nice though a bit compact. But overall, I'm very happy with this hotel and... More

Stayed here for one night on a recent business trip because I have stayed many times in years past and been very pleased. This time however, the stay was reminiscent of an ageing star slowing fading. The rooms were tired with carpet that looked like it hadn't been cleaned or replaced in many years, an air conditioning system that couldn't... More

Located an easy 10-minute straight-shot walk to The Bund area via a busy shopping street (including a huge Apple store), this is a good choice for a hotel. Clean spacious room with a firm and comfortable bed. Light switches and controls for lighting on either side of the bed. Comfortable chair. Well appointed business desk with international configured outlets by... More

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
