This hotel is a little aged from the designs and the outlook. Breakfast is relatively average in variety and taste. However, they made effort to ensure that the rooms are tidy and clean. Pillows are a little too soft and you have to request for a selection of pillows (which turns out to be rather soft still). Overall, for a... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times, on my last trip i stayed here 2 times. Was really looking forward to coming back this time and left a little disappointed. Nothing was bad, but nothing great, everything is just passable. everything from the buffet to the room make up was ok. Come to expect better form this hotel.

I have spent one week in this hotel during early January 2016. I originally asked my company to book Radisson New World, but due to some lack of contract they have decided to book another hotel in the same area, which is advertised as "five star". First, I have to say that only very few of the staff can manage... More

A centrally located hotel with easy access to the rest of the city. The room was large, clean and airy although, the decoration and furniture is a little dated. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

This is a great , centrally-located property which afforded us easy access to the varied delights of Nanjing Road and its interminable pedestrian shopping streets replete with malls and the more traditional "Mom 'n'Pop" shops which still hang on in certain places ! The Lobby is very comfortable and impressive overall- the Atrium embodies many beautiful features. Finally, the staff... More

I stayed at the Howard Johnson Plaza as I was in Shanghai on business. The rooms are very spacious and well equipped with comfortable beds. Staff were friendly with ok English and able to offer advice where necessary. Very centrally located and close to the Bund. Restaurant was ok - would probably recommend the buffet at the western restaurant for... More

I stayed on the 20th floor with a King bed and looked out the back of the hotel. The bad – couldn’t really find anything I didn’t like about this place. Perphaps the lighting was a bit tricky to understand but there is an instruction book in the room. Some lights you need to hold the buttons down to control... More

Very good location, just close to people square and all the shopping opportunities. Hotel is very big and atrium is amazing as far as it comes to rooms, they seem to be a little bit tired. Especially the bathroom. View from our room was not great at all, do not know about the other rooms. Breakfast was really good and... 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.
