I wouldn't stay there again. Although, the location was good, as it was very central, there were few issues of concern to me. The first room I was put in was probably the worst I've seen...and I have stayed in hostels. It had no window, it felt like I've been punished for coming to Shanghai. The room stank. There was...

I have stayed at this hotel at least 20 times over the past 7-8 years. I have always been fairly positively impressed by their overall quality of service. This time it was very bad at least for the first half day. Room was not ready. I was told by reception, that cleaning is in progress. When I was at the... More

This hotel is pretty gross. The management photos for this hotel are pretty misleading. While nothing bad happened, I never actually felt totally safe here. There are no safes provided in the rooms for your belongings. I needed to leave all my camera and computer equipment in the room overnight without me being there, so I left WITHOUT leaving the...

The place at first sight doesn't look terrible just a bit old. But once you stay in the room for a while things change fast. At the beginning I just thought it was old and a bit rundown, I don't have so much trouble with that. The problem is that the room was infested with cockroaches, moths, and other little... More

We looked at a lot of the reviews and it sounded fine for a budget hotel in a good area. However this was not at all the case. The whole hotel stunk. Not just of smoke but of mold. The rooms were dirty. Mold everywhere in the shower. Hard beds. Stains and dirt on the beds and carpet. We have... More

Decor of entire hotel is in dire need of updating. Probably hasn't been updated since the 1960s. Bathroom of my room was very moldy and just disgusting with its lack of cleanliness! Lighting was rather dingy. Reeptionist told me on check-in that she had given me the "best room"! If you're contemplating this hotel, the only thing going for it... More

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.
