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.

Rooms comfortable and well equipped, staff helpfull. Excellent location close to Najning Road, access to subway line 2. Try to avoid restaurant at the 2nd floor, staff needs to be trained how ti handle with guests, maybe they lost motivation but their service is really far away from any standard.

This hotel is not your typical Howard Johnson. I had a pleasant stay and would do so again. HOTEL/STAFF/ROOM The hotel is modern, has comfy places to sit in the lobby, and a small food stand as well. Starbucks is in the back of the lobby and there's also a men's shirt shop for those interested in getting custom made... More

Very close to shopping centers and western restaurants " Macdonald, KFC, Pizza Hut..." all within less than 5 mins walking distance. Also, starbucks in the lobby. The breakfast buffet was very good, served between 6:30 and 10:30 am and... 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.
