The only thing I really liked in the hotel was its location! It was very convenient in terms of its proximity to the subway. You can either take the subway from Nanjing Rd E or from Peoples Square. Plus the pedestrian street at Nanjing Road was literally a few meters away (which we loved). The location of other attractions from...

Went on a family trip to Shanghai for 3 days...found hotel in the heart of Nanjing Street ( pedestrian only). 250 m from Metro makes very convenient to commute. 40 mts drive from Hongciao airport..hotel is very reasonably priced when booked through online portals..skipped B'fast as that adds up quite a lot to the tariff..clean rooms.. Good size twin beds......

Ordinary quality hotel at very convenient location.the nearest metro station is a couple of minutes away and you can take line 2 from both airports. The breakfast is fine. For 288 RMB you can have a dinner at the hotel, but maybe you can consider to visit nearby restaurants.

I've had the suit 1710 for 5 nights. The rooms and bath were clean and in general good condition. Furniture a little old. Bed quality very good. Nearly no noise from street. The location is perfect especially for metro use. Line 2 from both airports stops at East Banking Road, just five minutes walking distance from the hotel.

The location of hotel is great with just a short walk to Nanjing Road Walking Street. Breakfast was alright with some varieties. The room is a little old. As we arrived during spring, there are neither heating or cooling provided. The air conditioning system is just circulating the air and the only adjustment could be done is fan speed.

Located near to nanjing Lu... Although very far from Pudong international airport (approx 46Kms) and also far from Shanghai World Exhibition Centre. But still near the most attractive shopping location. Distance from AP Plaza (fake market) is around 8Kms.

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.
