The hotel is right next to the People's Square with easy subway access. Walking to the Bund is about 40 minutes and Nanjing road is only a 10 minute walk away. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are spacious and clean. Right on Xizang road so you can't miss it.

Great location, it's right next to the Daishijie metro station. It's a safe neighborhood with plenty of restaurants to choose from. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was simple but decent enough with half Chinese and half non- Chinese selection. I like the simple but artistic deco too! On the down side, the lobby area is a bit too dark (i... More

This hotel is situated near Peoples Square, a central location very close to Shanghai Museum. I stayed for two nights. The standard room was of average size, clean, with TV, toiletries, safebox, etc. The WiFi was OK, the greatest nuisance is the Chinese censoring blocking certain news and everything in connection with Google. But this is the same in all... More

Jinjiang metropolo was a great value for our first stay in Shanghai and I would recommend it to all my friends. The location above Dashijie metro station and across the road from the Shanghai Museum is really convenient (note however google maps is slightly off, its actually listed on google as Marvel Hotel, not in People's Square). The staff were... More

Thank you for staying MetroPolo on your SH visit. We are China's leading mid-scale lodging chain with 40+ hotels already open in China. The value for money is key to the brand business plan so that rooms are well decked out with plush bedding and amenities such as 4 or 5 star hotels. Every guest loves this boutique's location.

Thank you for staying MetroPolo Classiq boutique while in Shanghai in the historic YMCA building from 1930. The location is quite superb for walking around and for transportation. There are 7 extra large rooms which are well worth the extra money if you are staying a few extra days. The restaurant is leased out, but the brand requires the east-meets-west-breakfast... More

I was a bit hesitant when I booked this hotel initially as the bathroom photos put me off a bit (the tile looks moldy). Went ahead to book it anyway after reading reviews and everyone praised it's cleanliness. Turned out, the tiles weren't moldy, it's just dated/stained, but very clean. It even come with rain forest shower! The room is... More

We stayed there for 4 nights. We chose there because it is not far from the PEOPLE'S SQUARE with Metro 2 line (10min walk), this metro connects 2 airports. What we liked: - Charming building with history. It used to dedicate to YMCA (Young Men's Christian Association) in China in early 1900s. Actually we read it in a beloved book.... 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.
