We stayed in The Charms Hotel for 5 nights over new years and had a wonderful experience. For $25 AUD a night we had a HUGH room with a big window over looking Shanghai's Nanjing Road. It was in a great location in-between the people square and the bund. Transport was easy due to the proximity to two major train...

The hotel, its location and price is fine. Its walking distance to Nanjing street. It has all the amenities you need. The only negative is on the backside of the hotel is all massage parlors. The restaurants are quite good just stay away from the bad areas.

The location was perfect for my needs, just one street away from Nanjing Road pedestrian street! The metro was also walking distance away which was tremendously helpful. The staff were reasonably helpful considering the language barrier. The facilities are very old and dated. The inside of the building needs a solid revamp. The carpets were old and dingy, the taps...

It's not perfect but the location is. It is situated between two metro stops. You can easily catch the metro to the airport and it takes about an hour and a half and costs about 10RMB - and it's about 1 hour by taxi and about 200RMB.

On the contrary to reviews, I felt this was a excellent value for money. Stayed 5 nights booked for a room with no view got an upgrade to a partial view room. Automatic Currency exchange machine in the lobby is excellent thing to save time and secure transactions. Floor was shared by a Saloon, Stylist,Designer but at no point intruding...

They woke up when they heard us. It was a bit hard to communicate with the staff...

THE GOOD: 1. Location : a) 5 mins' walk to Exit 14 of People's Sq Metro station. For those travelling by train to & from airport, this convenience means quite a bit of $avings! Going to places during the trip via the metro was equally easy with this good proximity. But do note Shanghai metro doesn't seem too handicap, elderly,...

Spacious room, decor a bit faded, but comfortable bed and as the hotel is so central it was a great base to come and go from. It is about 2 mins walk from main shopping area, 5 mins walk from 2 underground stations so easy to get around the rest of the city. Good coffee shops nearby and the restaurant...

First of all, this hotel looks great in pics, but beware, it is not what it seems. If you are a non smoker and don't like cigarettes DO NOT GO HERE. This is a smoking hotel, every room. The rooms smell gross disgusting full of smoke. The washrooms have a vent system that connects with other rooms, and it was...

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.
