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

I was attending few business meetings in Shanghai and happened to stay at this hotel. Great location right in Nanjing Road. 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

This hotel has outlived its status as 5-star. The rooms are tired and over-furnished (making them crowded) with outdated facilities and poor standard amenities. I seriously doubt the room met the size as advertised. I stood on carpet nails near where the aged carpet met the foyer tiles - fortunately not breaking skin. I had to use fingernails to lift...

Rooms are spacious and clean, pool, spa and Nanjing Road all in one hotel. Starbucks in the lobby was a pleasant suprise. OK to book a room that doesn't include bkfst.

Stayed here for 3 nights in May. Graded this 5 stars for the following: i) Cleanliness of the room; ii) Beautiful condition of the room; iii) State of the art gym.

The hotel is very generous in it´s public spaces. The rooms are bigger than other hotels of that category. It´s got a Starbucks at the back entrance which allows you to have your normal breakfast meal on the other side of the world, without feeling of not knowing what you are eating. Firendly staff.

All the facilities were great and so it was the location, close to the Bund. I was upgraded to a junior suite. The main commercial street was just in front of the hotel. All the employees are nice and English speaking.

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.
