When I arrived at the hotel, I was assigned a non-smoking room on a non-smoking floor. However, when I got to the room, the room/floor smelled really badly of smoke. It turned out that other floors - despite being smoking floors - didn't. In order to find me a room that was smoke-free, they ended up giving me an upgrade... More

What a value for money in central Shanghai. Wanted something different, other than the usual modern design hotels. I am glad to have found this hotel. Classic 1920's, '30's art-deco design throughout the hotel. I was treated with a generous room upgrade upon checking in. Staff were helpful and fluent in English. The room was just wonderful. very comfortable bed.... More

One of my hobbies and pastime is to stay at least 1 night at historic hotels wherever and whenever I business travel. There were and are a number of "old Hotels" in Shanghai - Peace Hotel, Astor Hotel (the old Richard Hotel), etc. Several were restored to past glories by international label chains - Waldorf Astoria, Intercon Ruijin, Fairmont Peace...

Greeting to a dismayed traveler, I understand how you must have felt. The Metropole opened in 1931, in all her then glory I believe; and now has closed summer 2014. We have closed this historic landmark for a total refurbishment inside, top to bottom. When the hotel reopens refreshed and new again in spring 2016, we will be a part... More

Although it is easy to be seduced by the attractive foyer, a trip to you room will reveal how this once attrctive hotel has been allowed to decline through lack of maintenance and greed. It is the only hotel (of seven this trip) that did not offer drinking water inclusive of the room rate but sold it as an extra,... More

Let's start with the good. This hotel is in a beautiful Art Deco building and is in an excellent central location. However I knew things weren't off to a good start when before I even got in the front door the local pimp was offering me good prices on a "sexy massage" with a beautiful Chinese lady. Then there was... More

The hotel has a good location. It is very close to the bund and a metro station was also right around the corner. The room was large but very old. Some furnitures were broken, no safe and in addition the power plug in the bathroom wasn't working. Overall an average experience.

We chose the J.J. Metropole Hotel mostly because of its location and stayed there for 8 nights (check-in: July, 6 2013). This historic hotel (1930s architecture) is located at the junction of Fuzhou and Jiangxi Roads and is a 5-minute walk from The Bund and the shopping belt of Nanjing Road.

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.
