Wonderful review, almost 5 circles....This is a MetroPolo Classiq hotel, an historic boutique in the old 1930's YMCA building. We are part of a large chain of mid scale hotels in China, providing exceptional value for money in prime locations. You are correct everybody loves this location for its convenience.

My wife and I stayed here for four nights. Our room was noisy because it faced the park, Rooms at the back would be quieter but not as interesting. We loved looking across at the park so didn't mind all the honking. The hotel is close to the museum and People's Park as well as many restaurants. A short walk...

Thank you Canada for staying MetroPolo Classiq, China's top mid scale lodging brand.

The hotel is right next to the People's Square with easy subway access. Walking to the Bund is about 40 minutes and Nanjing road is only a 10 minute walk away. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are spacious and clean. Right on Xizang road so you can't miss it.

Great location, it's right next to the Daishijie metro station. It's a safe neighborhood with plenty of restaurants to choose from. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was simple but decent enough with half Chinese and half non- Chinese selection. I like the simple but artistic deco too! On the down side, the lobby area is a bit too dark (i...

This hotel is situated near Peoples Square, a central location very close to Shanghai Museum. I stayed for two nights. The standard room was of average size, clean, with TV, toiletries, safebox, etc. The WiFi was OK, the greatest nuisance is the Chinese censoring blocking certain news and everything in connection with Google. But this is the same in all...

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.

Super Great location in the historic 1931 YMCA building for transport, shopping, entertainment, bars and cafes! Historic entrance then walk or take the lift to 2F to reception. This hotel joined the new mid scale Jinjiang MetroPolo Hotel chain as a "Classiq". Try out the new extra large rooms recently renovated and well worth a little extra to overlook the park.Good local cuisine featured in the 3 meal a day leased out cafe on 2F.
