The hotel is conveniently located with a short walk from South Shaanxi metro station. Although the rooms (and beds) are very small, it was clean and comfortable. Non smoking in the whole building but ashtrays are provided in the rooms and public areas? Extra charge for use of gym, pool etc. Overall, this hotel is not 4/ 5 star standard....

It is located between nanjing road and french cohession. It is an wonderful place where you can find great restaurants, bars and shopping places in walking distance. It has great services and the room is super clean. It is a average price place to reside with family and it is safe.

The hotel is nice but they made a few mistakes: - my mom and dad arrived first and the hotel mixed the rooms; - even if no-smoking level, Chinese smoke inside the hotel and nobody avoid this. besides that, they smoke EVEN in the breakfast room (as far as I know, is prohibited to smoke in closed places in shanghai);...

Room fairly comfortable; Hotel clean; buffet breakfast good; fairly convenient location being about 12 minutesalk from 2 metro stations; disppointed that the 'superior' room did not allow access to the swimming pool as advertised. Huge Y100 cost if you wanted a dip.

City is a fairly basic hotel, no frills. On arrival the check in staff didn't make eye contact, smile or say anything, and they didn't do the usual explanation of hotel facilities etc. The room was adequate but no more. The bed was hard, the bathroom wasn't that clean and the sink and bath didn't drain properly. The furniture was...

City Hotel is clean, efficient, and in a great location. You can walk about 10-15 minutes to the red or green line. We enjoyed the breakfast in the morning as well-except that it ended at 10, and they quickly cleaned up all the food at 10. Using booking.com we paid about 600 rmb/room.

Stayed in City Hotel Shanghai for one night. Location is very good, though Metro a bit far away. Service during check-in/check-out good. Executive rooms are very good, but the Executive lounge is a joke, not worth spending the extra money. Decor in hotel is a bit dated. Breakfast was kinda poor, as there were not enough tables avaliable and had...

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.
