I don't often go back to the same hotels but this hotel is convenient for Nanjing Rd and The Bund and you don't pay a fortune for it. The best part of it, it has a Starbucks attached to it so perfect to getting a decent coffee before you head out. Latte to go !

Firstly we asked the best way to get to Tongli, we were told to take a cab and it'll cost around RMB 300. It cost RMB 700. Secondly we asked the best way to get to Hangzhou. We were... More

Great Location. Really near that main outdoor shopping street and also a 15 minute walk to the Bond (I don't know how to spell that). The hotel was clean and nicely done. The food was average but there was a lot of selection on the buffet. They tried to have a nice selection of western food as well which was... More

Not worth the rate as it's an old hotel which need renovation. Hotel employee are friendly though. Location is convenience for the bund and the Nanjing Road walking street. Carpet in rooms looks very old, amenities need to have better suppliers.

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.
