The accommodation was excellent, the meals superb and the service out of site. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. A very comfortable hotel and very well located near Nanjing Street. My wife and I were well catered for and the meals were really good.

I highly recommend this hotel. This is bang in the middle of the Shanghai CBD and very close to the Bund. The rooms are wonderful, specially the decor. The food is a bit average in the Cafe. The WiFi connection though is really bad. We stayed for 2 nights and one of the nights was my daughter's birthday. When we... More

The location is spectacular and it really expresses the true personality of Shanghai. At night time, the hotel view shown how bustling and booming the city was whilst I was in the midst of it. The rooms are clean, well furnished and the staff were sound in their customer service and communication skills. The beds were great - in the... More

Building a little old and room small but cozy and comfortable. Very close the Nanjing Road with walking distance. Subway not far away as well. There is a restaurant attach to this hotel. They also offer buffet breakfast with additional charge, but you could find better place with better price outside walking distance because you are so close to the... More

For tourists, location and comfort with a touch of elegance. 1/2 block from Nanjing Road East, 5-6 blocks from the Bund and Peoples Square and subway stops. WiFi connection was excellent. We asked for a high floor, and had a wonderful view of Huangpu River and Pudong (understandably somewhat obstructed.) The room was tastefully decorated and conveniently arranged with comfortable...

Well located near the Bund, public transportation and shopping. The prices in the hotel restaurants are outrageous. Eat somewhere else. The rooms are very comfortable, nicely maintained and the bathrooms are modern and spacious. Overall, a good choice.

Central location, very clean, staff kind and professional, will be returning. High floor as requested. Price is right. I won't even try another hotel as I was so happy with Central. Starbucks and restaurants less than a block. Many people walking around and older locals enjoying the area, some with tiny dogs which were dressed up and a few even... More

The Pros: I'd say the location of this hotel is excellent as it is close to two metro stations (People's Square and Nanjing East Rd), and is within walking distance Nanjing Rd, the Bund and many shopping centres and restaurants. The room was adequately sized, bathroom was well equipped with both a shower and a bath tub, and the bed... 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.
