This Hotel is in a very good location and is well known. the rooms are very large and everything works. they are very quiet which is great. It is getting a little tired and is overdue for a face lift. The restaurant food is not geared for the western guest but if you don't plan to eat or drink in... More

In the city center close to everything. Beautiful view of the city and all activities.offers everything including multiple restaurants. The rooms and amenities are excellent and clean. Money exchange service which is convenient if traveling from other countries. The room had a suite with its own TV and table great to relax or do business work.

Stay 5 days for business trip. Central location near People squire, walking distance to all nearly all attraction in Shanghai. Fine restraint and convenient store nearby. Raffles plaza and world trade center within 10 mins walk. You can tell it's been running for years. Equipment is old but the inner decoration is quite clean and comfortable.

1. I have started to stay your hotel since 2009, but the breakfast menu had not changed (7 years are the same). 2. I have to spend at least avg. 20-25 mins to check out and there is one incident (28 Apr 2016) caused me going late to Shanghai trans station.

the location is absolutely great. except for one European guy others have communication issues. rooms are small & no place to keep your main luggage. customer svc is not bad but could improve more. very good spa to relax after along flight. Starbucks just below so very convenient. recommended for a biz traveler

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.
