This hotel was right on the Pedestrian Rd in the middle of the shops. Walking distance to other shopping areas, the subway and the Bund. We had a suite which meant plenty of room with a separate lounge area, comfortable bed and large bathroom. Room was cleaned well and generally the hotel was nicely presented. The staff were helpful when...

Friendly staff and a very central location. Though the location is next to busy Nanjing Road the rooms were quiet and comfortable. The hotel recognized my accor privilege membership and upgraded my room.

This hotel's location is the highlight of our stay in it. its back entrance opens on the very happening Nanjing Square, which has malls, restaurants, tourist attractions etc. it is walking distance from Bunder too. It is not only very convenient but excellent location for a tourist with easy access to almost everything. The rooms and bathrooms are very small...

I wanted to spoil myself for the holidays--needs must be met, after all! I can honestly say I was not disappointed! From the custodial staff to management (my never-ending gratitude, Julia!), the hospitable nature of all concerned was......truly wonderful. More cannot be said, lest I cloud the truth! Just go experience it for yourself! Having lived in China for 7...

Unexpectedly, the room size was small. But location is unbeatable, smack bang in the middle of Nanjing Pedestrian Street. Service was impeccable, concierge even helped us finding transportation when we were no longer a hotel guest, but got stranded around the area. Finding taxis in Shanghai is a but tricky when you don't know what you were doing. Food in...

Right in the middle of Nanjing Street. Very near the metro stop. Can walk to the Bund. We had macaron as the welcome gift. Check-in and check-out was smooth. There's Muslim restaurant right across the hotel.

My family and me went to Shanghai for holiday, departing from our residence in NZ. As a foreign born Chinese ethnicity person, my experience was overall horrible and stressful. The hotel was told on the day that our room was expecting a parcel and the name it was under however they returned it as we had "checked out" which had...

The room is one of the smallest club rooms we have stayed in, on this trip in China. The bathroom is very small but practical. Only one person can fit in at one time.

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.
