I chose this hotel for my four night stay mainly because of its location just a few steps away from Nanjing Road East and within walking distance to the Bund and to Peoples' Square. The room as well as the bed were huge and comfortable, the bathroom had an extra shower section and a separate toilet. The ambience is elegant....

This hotel is ideally located in a walking distance from the Bund. The room was spacious and very clean, and suited our needs. The staff was very helpful and nice and the concierge helped us anytime we needed help. There is a very enjoyable indoor pool and I enjoyed a terrific foot massage. Altogether a great stay. Highly recommended.

Good location, nice room, great breakfast. Overall I would recommend the hotel to others. The room was no smoking but it had a little bit of smoke smell, but that is hard not to have in a China hotel.

We actually booked the Central Hotel, but when we arrived they said we had been upgraded to the Grand Central. What a treat! The room is spacious and really luxurious. The doormen are very friendly and are very attentive, opening the door just as you need it, but keeping out the cold as long as possible. We didn't pay for...

My husband and I have stayed here twice and it is one of the best hotels I've stayed at. Beautiful decor and large spacious rooms. The beds are very comfortable and there is a large selection of English movies available to watch. It is perfectly located near Nanjing Pedestrian Street and the Bund. The French restaurant on site is quite...

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.
