Just brilliant! The rooms are spacious and spectacular! The views over the shopping district are fantastic. The location is top notch...an easy walk to The Bund, people's Square and is smack bang in the middle of a huge shopping district. Exceptional experience

Hotel is in a very good location. Very, very near Nanjing Road for shopping. Rooms were spacious and very clean. Bathroom in our room on the 27th floor had a glass partition (with the window blinds giving ample cover should you opt for privacy). My kids' bathroom on the 11th floor, thankfully, had a solid partition and separate shower and...

The hotel looks a bit old from outside but the room is well maintained! The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is only 5 mins walk from Nanjing Road, the main shopping area with many restaurant options!

This was a nice, well priced hotel in a good location. The rooms were a good size, the staff helpful. Breakfast was great and lunch was tasty although the menu was a little limited. I'll stay here again on my next visit.

Staid there 2 times, never again. Let's be positive first. Greatest and only asset : location. Rest is terrible, old rooms, TV with only 2 non Chinese channels, food is a disgrace really, even the Chinese menu. Staff useless, unable to speak English, shower boiling hot, dangerous. Plenty of MUCH better options in the area. Stay away...

Extra pillows parcked on the floor, not enough shower gel available even if requested, toilet was blocked but not clean after fixiting it up. Breackfast lefel is good with...

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...

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.
