This hotel is located just off a very busy main road so it's quiet & away from the immediate hustle & bustle of downtown Shanghai. I got a corner room with a fantastic view of the city & a good glimpse of old Shanghai residences next to the hotel. This is interesting, the modern next to the old. Dinner on...

I've stayed 4 times at the Howard Johnson Plaza in Shanghai in the last year and have not been disappointed once. I've had upgrades to suite rooms when the hotel has been less full. The beds are a little hard by Western standards but everything else is perfect. The breakfast buffet is has a lot on offer. The location of...

Location is excellent. A short walk or cab ride to many business areas on the Puxi side of the Bund. Lovely breadfast buffet is served. Room is clean and comfortable.

We stayed at this hotel the last two nights of our recent trip to east China. Frankly, I was disappointed in the room: it was all bed. (I guess that we stayed in a standard room.) The room was tiny, and the bed occupied most of the space in the room. (This reminded me of the Bonaventure Hotel in downtown...

It's a good business hotel, though for tourism I might stay somewhere else. Pros: -- Location is excellent. A short walk or cab ride to many business areas on the Puxi side of the river (if your meetings are on Pudong side, best to pick a different hotel). Plenty of eating options for breakfast/dinner within a short stroll, and near...

I was not excited when my husband booked us in a HOJO as I would never stay in one in the States. Boy, was I surprised! This is a very beautiful hotel. We flew in from Pudong airport and the cab fair was around 200RMB. From the moment we stepped out of the cab, we were greeted and led to...

This was my first hotel in China and my first trip to that country. At the airport I bought a temporary simm card for my mobile and ran out of credit on it, so I had to buy more credit. I did not know where to buy it and how to communicate to the local people outside of the hotel,...

I was skeptical of staying in a HoJo, but this was fantastic. The location is perfect - easy walking distance to Nanjing Road, the Bund and People's Square, plus the subway which can launch you everywhere else. I tend to walk a lot when I travel - the best way to see a city - and I was able to...

Staying in People’s Square

Neighbourhood 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.
