Well priced hotel. Good location. Clean rooms with adequate facilities no complain on any of the services. Have a Starbucks in the hotel area. Taxi availability for short distances can be an issue in the morning. Overall good experience might stay again.

I am always worried about food while visiting China. Chose this hotel because of great location and name sounded western. I was right. Hotel is about one hour drive from Pudong airport. Cab charged 175 RMB. There is option to take Metro line 2 and get down at East Nanjing road station from where the hotel is walking distance of... More

Just near the main plaza, close to nanjing road which is the main road for restaurants and shopping (at least for tourists). Staff does not very good with english but they have a concierge at the lobby that speeks well and helps the engliah speaking tourists. Rooms are very clean and bed is comfortable. Subway station is nearby which makes... More

Stayed one night here before flying home. I'm in Shanghai 2 or 3 times a year and I usually stay at the New Harbour, but their prices have been steadily increasing and are no longer good value- in my opinion. I had to wait a few minutes at check-in but was rewarded with a free upgrade to a spacious Business... More

Hotel is in an excellent location between the people's square and east Nanjing road metro stations. The main pedestrian shopping street is just 5 mins walk away. The hotel lobby and facilities are excellent - the pool and spa in particular, however the rooms are quite dated / in need of some refurbishment. Of the five 4/5 star hotels I've... More

We were weary about booking a hotel that seems relatively aged, but our 4-day stay here has been nothing but amazing. We booked using points from my Chase Sapphire and it was super cheap compared to other 4/5-star hotels around the area. ROOM - very clean, things might look aged but very well taken care of, no stains or spills,... 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.
