This is definitely worth my money hotel. I stayed here for a night for a business trip. Tried out this hotel instead of the usual one beside. I must say I will return to this hotel than the usual one that I stay beside. The bed is very comfortable and the room is big, not sure if they upgraded the...

Visiting Shanghai for business we stayed at this aptly named hotel - right in the busy heart of the city and a comfortable walk to the Bund. Whilst not top of the range it is very suited to a quick visit.

We stayed here for 3 nights on our first trip to China. We received an upgrade to a room with a separate sitting area which was very nice. The location too is very good, being about a 20 minute walk from the Bund in one direction and People's Square in the other. The only real shortcoming was the restaurant, offering...

I was rather stunned by the room I must say. Its huge and spacious, with separation of the bedroom from common room and toilet. I truly had a wonderful and peaceful night sleep while traveling for work. Its near to the walking street where you can find many varieties of food and shops.

Beautiful place, excellent location, helpful staff. We were only a block or two from a Times Square type walking area where the energy was electric. It was also easy walking distance to many restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay there again!

This is a very nice hotel located in centre of Huangpu area. Shops and restaurants are everywhere near hotel. Around 5 mins walk from metro station Nanjing Road East. Service was good too. Concierge helped me call taxi to my workplace. Note that CNY500 deposite will be charged at checkin.

I recently spent 3 days at this hotel. I enjoyed their Western style buffet breakfast and did note that there was a Chinese buffet selection as well. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to many attractions.

We spent two full days in Shanghai en route to Japan. This hotel is ideally placed adjacent to the very long shopping mall and the "Hop on/off Bus". The rooms are very spacious and well provided. The buffet breakfast caters for both Chinease and western foods and is excellent. The restaurant provides buffet and a-la-carte and is a seafood lovers...

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.
