Located in the tourist heart of the city. From the airport you can reach by subway (line 2) perfectly without making exchanges and there are two subway stations within 10 minutes walking. The reception staff is very friendly, and they actually speak enough English to take my reservation. I got an executive room in the 12th floor, and my room... More

Clean, comfortable room. Conveniently located within walking distance from The Bund, People's Square, Shanghai Museum, and Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street. There are many, many restaurants around the hotel. Great value for the location.

My travel agent was able to get us a suite at the Bund Hotel and it was very nice! The room was very spacious with separate living room and bedroom (see photos). In addition to the full bathroom with separate tub and shower, there is a half-bath in the living room. The bed was very comfortable and the room was... More

Our experience was quite shocking. The staff was rude and worst place I've stayed in Asia for any level of assistance and breakfast was a joke! The hotel is very outdated and poorly maintained. The room is very below average. They do not replace your sheets and towels unless you make a request in writing. The showers are leaking into... More

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

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.
