The hotel is very well located, just one block away from the subway and from Nanjing road. My bedroom was more than great! Comfortable bed, good view of the city and giant bathroom. It was very clean also. The facilities include a swimming pool, sauna and gym. Breakfast options were wide and delicious. I surely recommend this one!

This is an excellent hotel within easy walking distance or a cheap taxi ride of all major attractions. The concierge staff were very helpful and provided a card with their address in Chinese and all the major tourist attractions also in English and Chinese together with indicative taxi fares.

Stayed here for 4 nights. The location is excellent, close to the Bund, and shopping. Huge bathroom, lovely room, but only use the complimentary small bottles of water. The price of the larger bottle of Evian was quite outrageous. We ate out as there are many choices of eateries nearby. This hotel will be my first choice on return to...

I was in Shanghai for break from work in Beijing, and although the air was better in Beijing that week-end, I enjoyed Shanghai very much. The hotel helped. Not cheap, but very well appointed (I was on the business floor), very good aircondition (probably with air-filter), very well appointed luxurious room with bath and shower, great comfortable bed (the softest...

First things first, this is a very nice hotel. The location is great and the rooms and decor are very nice. The reason I've marked down the score is due to the eye-watering overcharging that they apply to any food or drink. 70 Yuan for a bottle of water...that's £8 or $11 (US). The same exact bottle of water can...

Nice deco but they have one policy that is really bad. For that price DO NOT STAY in this hotel. Having taken tea and dinner in the hotel, I was told that I needed to pay for asking an extra bottle of water. According to their policy, each room is only given 2 bottles per day. Is not about the...

This hotel is centrally located to Naijing road mall. Plenty of restaurants and cafe's located near the hotel being a short walk away. The prices in the hotel lobby bar are very expensive compared to Australia. Staff in the lobby could be more friendly when you enter the hotel with a simple hello and welcome. Our room was not made...

Very convenient and Central location, with quick access to the train to both airports. Rooms are wonderfully spacious and include all that you could need. Particularly like large bath and separate toilet and shower. Everything is very pricey (drinks, coffee particularly) but Jamaica Blue is about 5 mins away.

Stayed at this hotel twice. Very comfortable large king rooms. Extensive choice with Buffet Breakfast (too much choice). would stay again because of location and near to the popular Nanjing Road and Bund. The metro was 2 mins from the hotel line 2. This route could take you direct to Pudong Airport or Maglev. Stylish, executive and clean hotel. Staff...

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.
