Main remark is: the difference between standard and upgraded rooms is remarkable. This hotel has nothing more than those nearby. I think that a view (to people's square) is what you can try to get to make your stay a little more pleasant.

My husband and I found a great deal on the net and stayed for four nights. We were really happy. We had read that five star hotels in China were not five star by international standards but we felt that this hotel was. The room was very well appointed and new. It had everything we could possibly want. The only...

When my SO originally told me this is where he wanted to stay, my first reaction was a HOJO??? I dont think so. It was fantastic - definitely worth the 5 star rating! It was a great transition for us to come into china and stay at a hotel that was very American/English friendly. The service was amazing and extremely...

With spacious rooms, a beautiful enormous marble Entrance way with multiple seating areas and unobtrusive service staff offering morning coffee or drinks-charged to the room. Fromthe hotel we walked every where . When we needed a taxi it...

Our first stop when touring China on honeymoon. We had booked a superiour room but they kindly upgraded us to a suite which was huge. Lovely big comfortable bed, nice living area, and huge bathroom. We received complimentary wine and a fruit platter too. The staff tried hard with their english and did not make you feel foolish - however,...

Location was spot on right in the middle of Shanghai and about a 10 minute walk to the Bund and about 100 meters from Nanjing Road (which makes the walk to the Bund quite entertaining!). Clearly nothing at all like a Howard Johnson's in the States - although clearly less polished than top five star hotels elsewhere, it was extremely...

Booked it because we found a good deal online. Room was fine, you can get bigger rooms at some 4star hotels though. Beds were really comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly. The location is really great. Although I didn't like Nanjing road with all the touts and tourists. Heard locals avoid it. Around the hotel are several convenience stores, many...

This is a traditional style hotel. Kind of old but still great. Crowded but easy check-in. We got the Superior Room with King Bed and it was spacious and clean. Walking distance from the Bund and Nanjing Road (across the street). We recommend it!

The hotel is within walking distance of the Bund, People's Square, and is adjacent to the major shopping area. The rooms were good size, tasteful, and clean. We enjoyed the pool, which was large enough for lap swimming. Easy check in.

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.
