It is clean and neat with no smell and it is spacious and quiet. The bedss are excellent. If you want an upscale hotel in Shanghai for budget price this is it. One block...

We actually booked the Central Hotel, but when we arrived they said we had been upgraded to the Grand Central. What a treat! The room is spacious and really luxurious. The doormen are very friendly and are very attentive, opening the door just as you need it, but keeping out the cold as long as possible. We didn't pay for...

My husband and I have stayed here twice and it is one of the best hotels I've stayed at. Beautiful decor and large spacious rooms. The beds are very comfortable and there is a large selection of English movies available to watch. It is perfectly located near Nanjing Pedestrian Street and the Bund. The French restaurant on site is quite...

If I was to give highest rating to this hotel, then it would be for it's location. It is right on the walking street at Nanjing. So far, my experience has been great here. The rooms are gr8 and look exotic. Facilities are pretty decent. Overall, it looks like a must stay.

Was here for 2 nights and it was a good base to get a feel for Shanghai. Enjoyable breakfast clean and comfortable. An easy walk to Nanking pedestrian mall which is fun to Bund and a short cheap taxi to the wonderful old city. Pool is wonderful. Jaccuzi hot water but no bubbles. Had a hot chocolate from room service...

I loved the grandness of the hotel. They have a heated pool on the fifth floor, which I unfortunately never got around to trying. Their breakfast spread is rather lavish, you are spoiled for choice. Room service has limited options, especially if you order post 1.30PM. It's a 10 minute walk from the Bund and has a 24X7 store right...

I expect five star hotels to provide a 5-star service and to cut the guests a (small) break whenever possible. Unfortunately, this did not happen during checkout today when we came across Deputy Manager Kimi Zhu. We were informed that we had consumed a bottle of water from the room bar and that the cost was 70 Yuan (say a...

Fantastic hotel in the center of Shanghai! Rooms are wide and clean, perfect furnitures and with a great sight from the windows. The location is perfect to take a look at the fantastic Nanchino Street

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.
