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.

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel and being a repeater, it always feels good to know that you are in a safe and comfortable haven. Especially after our bad hotel experience in Howard Johnson Xian. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location is perfect.

We really enjoyed our stay here and by booking early we got a very good rate (c£70 per night for a double room). The rooms are very nice with big bathrooms and the location on Nanjing road is also great. The bund is a c10min walk away with all you would want of shops and restaurants just outside the hotel....

The position of the hotel is the best. Right on the peoples square in Nanjing Road. You cannot have a better place to stay in Shanghai. I have stayed at atleast six 4& 5 star hotels in Shanghai and can confirm no place can rival Nanjing Road in Shanghai if not whole of Asia. The lobby is also great. 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.
