We booked this hotel because my girlfriend had stayed here many times and said it was good. Well things have changed! There wallpaper ripped off walls. Mould on roof. Showers not working. Phone system not working. Only thing that works is the cleaners. Its so run down and I don't think they employ maintenance staff anymore. Its a disgrace. We...

Havings stayed at the Salvo when it was new in 2004 and several times during the next 5 or 6 years, I was shocked what has happened to it. It wasn't lit, broken tiles all over the place, the main desk shut, wallpaper either ripped off the walls or moldy, etc. The room had a new flat screen but otherwise...

I'm not exactly sure what is going on at this building but the lobby and the halls are very dark - few if any lights on, the ceiling tiles are falling in, and it was damp and freezing. Our room smelled like a boat and the windows were dirty. there are no amenities on site - no breakfast room, no...

First special mention to the reservation staff ( booked directly via hotel website) very efficient, helpful and fluent in English, just perfect. English is less mastered by front desk, depending on whom you meet, anyway always smiling (not that common here) and enough for check in.. A bit old hotel that would certainly need a few refurbishments, some equipments are...

Do not be cheated by the photos uploaded, the hotel is in a badly stage when I last saw it. Horrible, dishonest staff who double charge me. Luckily I booked through agoda, in the Long process waiting and waiting. Agoda refunded me, this salvo hotel did nothing. They are cheats! Multiple emails from me and agoda, their response was refunded...

I was there about 10 times in last 3 years. It has a very good situation 5 minutes walk from East Nanjin Road. Near the metro station direct from the airport. Large rooms. Nice breakfast room in the 31st floor. Enough good breakfast. Chinese service. Not too professional. Cheap room prices.

We chose this hotel mainly because of its location. The weather was cooler than normal and the hotel was very cold...except for the dining room which was extremely hot. The front desk staff wore coats. They seemed to spend most of their time on their cellphones, English was very limited. Our room was very large and had a separate sleeping...

We didnt interact with staff except for checking in and out and that was fine. The hotel was aging a bit but it was clean and the rooms were of good size. The biggest plus was the location. Close enough to Nanjing Street, the bund and the train to walk 8 - 15 mins. If you consider a hotel just...

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.
