Huge reception atrium with English speaking staff. Very large bedroom with huge bathroom. One minute from metro (Line 2 to Pudong Airport) and Nanjing pedestrianized shopping street with excellent restaurants. 15 minutes to the Bund. Couldn't ask for a better located luxury hotel at a reasonable price.

Excellent service, food and "air conditioner". I have been suffering from restricted ac in other cities prior to arriving back in Shanghai. The beds are also incredibly comfortable. Can't beat the location.

This place was excellent value compared to similar hotels in Sept 2014. Spacious room, excellent housekeeping, friendly concierge, lovely gym with city views. The location is nice for tourism, next to the Sofitel, right on the pedestrian mall, but if I had very full days of meetings I would choose a hotel in the financial district. A comfortable base to...

The room facilities and interior design are wonderful and I really love the color theme of the hotel. The hotel servants look professional. And lobby of the hotel is really grand and luxury-like.

After visiting in September we returned twelve months later and were not disappointed. Very well located a short distance from the centre of Nanjing Road pedestrian mall, with excellent facilities and service to back it all up. Large and very well appointed rooms.

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.
