Distinguished hotel, very good and efficient personnel. Rooms at 26th floor are offering a wonderful panorama over glittering night Shanghai. Rooms are very generous, well equipped. The only inconvenience was very slow Wi-Fi and even by cable was the same.

I stayed here for 5 nights in November. Didn't feel welcome upon check in, the reception who checked me in did not explain anything about hotel facilities , only told me no breakfast included. We only asked for housekeeping on the 3 day during our stay , however on the 4th night after we came back, the room was serviced... More

Gotta agree with some of the other reviewers, my room was just too hot. Even though it was much cooler outside it was still far too warm in my room. The ac won't go lower than 25 and it's still too hot for me! Apart from this it's what you expect from a upmarket Chinese hotel. Language even here in... More

If you have experienced Howard Johnson in the US, it is a consistent and moderate priced select-service property. It is what you would expect for the money spent. In Asia however, this Brand is consistent with what you would expect from a 4-star upper-upscale property, if not more. The hotel exceeded expectations in every way I could imagine.

We arrived from Busan early on 19.11.16. We arrived at the hotel at 11 am. Surprisingly we could check in and was given a room straightaway. We were also allowed to check out at 2 pm next day. The receptionist was polite, helpful and efficient. Whenever we dialled "0" for help, help was rendered almost immediately. However we were disappointed... More

The location of the hotel is near the Nanjing East Pedestrian Road (known for it's shopping malls). It is very accessible. How to get here: Pudong Airport --> Maglev Train --> Longyang Road (Line 2) --> alight at East Nanjibg Station --> Exit 1 or Exit 4 Also, some tourist attractions (e.g. People's Park, The Bund, Museum) are just walking...

The best thing about this hotel is the location. Rooms were large, beds comfortable. If you don't smoke make sure you do not get a room on the 6th floor. The coffee shop in the foyer is expensive. The genuine chinese restaruant on the 1st floor was not nice. Staff were not helpful therefore we got a terrible meal.

Wo stayed there for six nights in November. The hotel is located in the center of the city and a few steps from the famous padeitran only street. The lobby is huge and room is nice and quiet. Overall we love this place and definitely will go back!

Overall the hotel was very good. Excellent English speaking concierge who was very helpful. Breakfast was good with wide choice of foods. Buffet here in the evening was OK with sushi, Chinese food and Western foods. Steer clear of the Chinese restaurant on the second floor. 3 of us pitched up there around 20:00. There were 4 guys at one... 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.
