This hotel is smack dab in the middle of Shanghai. A short walk from the Bund, close to Yu Gardens, and plenty of shopping opportunities nearby. The rooms are spacious with plenty of great views of Shanghai. Accomodations are great. Food is beyond average. I would stay here again the next time I come back and visit Shanghai. Don't forget...

Baseline: 1.The room is clean. 2.Staffs are friendly. 3.The floor/hotel is quite. 4.Bath/shower separated Bonus: 1.I like the design of the hotel(Renaissance in general). Not luxurious but clean and concise. 2.The room is not prepared when checked in, so the front desk provided the drinking coupon in the lounge bar. Pretty thoughtful details. Cons: 1.It's next to Cheng Huang Miao....

Staying here just for a 24-hour lay over on our way from Moscow to Bangkok. The hotel is in a very good location. Although the design looks a little dated by Western standards, it's kept up beautifully. General atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant. The rooms are well thought out and very clean and well-kept. The beds are very good though...

Really quite upset about having to leave. I had the joy of staying here during my birthday, and when my friend notified the staff about this, they sent a lovely little cake to my room and offered an amazing recommendation of a Japanese restaurant that was literally a spiritual awakening. The facets and the room itself were well insulated, lighting...

Located near the ancient Yu Gardens tourist area, this hotel is a solid 4+ to 5 star hotel. Modern and well maintained with a friendly staff, it is just steps away from the the entrance to the very clean and efficient Metro system. Can't go wrong with this hotel. Recommended

Very nice experience stayed here for the first time. The service is great, wherever you go, you are met with a smile, except for when getting a taxi - those guys do not seem to enjoy their job at all.

There is a lot of glitz here and the fact that the Chromatics were playing over the tannoy in the lobby when I checked out is a major plus but in all, there is a sheen here and not much substance.

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.
