The room: I was expecting a fairly average room but was pleasantly surprised. The staff told me that I had an upgrade to the executive level (room 1615) and the room was very spacious and clean with possibly the most comfortable bed and pillow I've ever slept on. The bathroom was also spotless with a Japanese-style bidet. There was a... More

Our group stayed 2 nights at the hotel. The location was great for us - it was walking distance to The Bund and the Nanjing Street shopping area. Our stay included the buffet breakfast which included a wide selection of items. Our rooms were nice, but very warm. We were told the use of air-conditioning in April is regulated by... More

Rooms were clean and well air-conditioned. The breakfast was among the best hotel breakfasts I had during my two-week stay in China. I guess if I have to come up with any complaints, there's two: a) it's not *that* close to the Bund/Nanjing Rd, about a ten-minute walk and b) when I was there only one song played on loop... More

We stayed 2 nights here on our trip around China. This hotel was excellent for our needs. We did not experience any of the negative things we read about below. Either some of these things were fixed or just didn't apply to us. Check-in was easy. Our Chinese-speaking guide handled it, but I spoke English with the staff, as well.... More

The hotel is showing its age, needs a good face lift. The service in general was poor, 12 minutes to register, too many non-English speaking staff at key locations. The room was fine but rather dark, bed a bit too soft. The walk to the Bund is about 20 minutes and Nanjing shopping Mall is about a 10 min walk.... More

This is a very good hotel, centrally located, good varied breakfasts and very helpful front desk staff. Rooms were spacious, well equipped and it was a very pleasurable stay. We were on the 12th floor, and there was no smoke odour, as per other reviews. Great stay.

That same afternoon management arranged a meeting in our room.To our amazement,most of our stolen goods (bar some items) were placed on our bed. We asked what had happened... More

Great location, good breakfast, fair price .... BUT ... Felt uncomfortable with the fact that I was on the 6th floor and the stairwells to the first floor were locked with a sign that said this door will be opened in an emergency. In case of a fire.... Do I trust the young guy at the desk to open the... 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.
