We stayed here on a one-night transit stay. The location is great, within easy walking distance of the Nanjing Road East Metro station. The hotel itself if just OK. Our room had kind of a wood smoke smell to it, which we got used to quickly but was still odd. The internet was wretched, which cost them a star on...

The location is great. Almost on the Pedestrian Street on Nanjing Road and very close to the bund. So the location is perfect. I had stayed in Grand Central Hotel and the same is much much much better. Central Hotel is getting old. That said, the rooms are very clean and pose no problem. It is as good as any...

What a great location-would stay again. Get up early and go see the people in the Main Street excersing every day. The breakfast is filling and the shops around are great -there is a 7/11 around the corner and great massage place on next . Ask for a city view .

Hotel has a great location. near the Bundt which is a must see for the Shanghai skyline. Lots of restaurants and shops withing walking distance.English speaking staff is very helpful. the mini bar is priced high, but there is small store within 1/2 a block that has drinks and snacks.

The hotel's location is great: located near the Bund and the main walking street of the city. It takes less than 10mins walking to the Bund - one of the most highlighted spot in Shanghai. The service is good and breakfast is perfect. It's a bit expensive, but you pay for what you get :)

Spent a week here when visiting friends and family in Shanghai. Booked it based on previous reviews and hoped for the best. We certainly were not disappointed. Perfect location for the Bund, Peoples Park and the Pedestrian Street. Just a short walk to the underground station too. Clean well appointed hotel with friendly staff. Usual firm Chinese beds but comfortable....

The breakfast was very good and could satisfy European and Chinese preferences. Kind and helpful people at the reception and the breakfast room.

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.
