This hotel is centrally located right on the famous Nanjing road shopping zone and short walk to The Bund. First day they gave us a very small and tired looking room which was unexpected from Sofitel standard hotel. From second day they upgraded us to a newly renovated suite room which was really well decorated and trendy and we loved... More

I understand some raving reviews about the location of the hotel. It's ON East Nanjing Road, hence a tourist trap. There's nothing great about being on the main shopping road of Shanghai where a mob of people stroll around 24/7. The access to everything is easy but it's not a location I'd like to be for a relaxing stay. My... More

I stayed 4 nights at the Sofitel with my tour group. It was a wonderful experience! The hotel is located right on Nanjing Road and a 10 minute walk to the Bund. The room was comfortable and spacious. Just a warning, the shower is not actually in the bathroom, it's more of a part of the room, of course with... More

Located on East Nanjing Road, and between two metro stops, it is a great location. Walk out the front door to Nanjing road activities, walk to the Bund, or catch the metro. Service is excellent. The facility itself is getting a bit tired, but not so much to make me question my decision to stay there.

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.
