We love this hotel. It's clean, conveniently located, friendly & honest staff, and very reasonably priced. It has a great buffet style breakfast as well. No compliant what so ever. It was our first time to visit Shanghai and would stay there again when we visit next time. Thumbs up!!

We recently stayed at the HJ Plaza with our pre-schooler. The hotel is in a fantastic location, with easy access to the Bund, Nanjing Rd, and the subway. Check in was efficient in the Club Lounge. Our room was clean, with a small PC and internet access, but the decor is rather dated. The products provided in the bathroom were...

Found it difficult to find fault with this hotel. I was upgraded to a suite, which makes judging the rooms a little difficult. Location was good (for me) as it is very close to my company's Shanghai office. I also found I could walk (briskly) to the Bund in about 15 minutes. Service was good - as it normally is...

Excellent hotel in a good location in PuXi (central Shanghai), 1 block from the pedestrian market, about 3 blocks from the metro line 2. Room was good, large for Asia, clean, well furnished, new carpet and flat-screen TV. Got an actual non-smoking room just by asking for non-smoking. Well-equipped all-marble bathroom, big bath, and with the most powerful mirror defogger...

The rooms are quite big and comfortable, the gym and the spa are very nice. The price for this hotel is quite low if you consider that it's Shanghai Downtown. This is the second time I stay at the Howard Johnson and will definitely stay again next time.

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.
