I've had the suit 1710 for 5 nights. The rooms and bath were clean and in general good condition. Furniture a little old. Bed quality very good. Nearly no noise from street. The location is perfect especially for metro use. Line 2 from both airports stops at East Banking Road, just five minutes walking distance from the hotel.

The location of hotel is great with just a short walk to Nanjing Road Walking Street. Breakfast was alright with some varieties. The room is a little old. As we arrived during spring, there are neither heating or cooling provided. The air conditioning system is just circulating the air and the only adjustment could be done is fan speed.

Located near to nanjing Lu... Although very far from Pudong international airport (approx 46Kms) and also far from Shanghai World Exhibition Centre. But still near the most attractive shopping location. Distance from AP Plaza (fake market) is around 8Kms.

The overall experience on this hotel is good. Rooms are nice, clean but could use an overhaul. You cannot adjust temperature on AC and bathrooms are old fashion. I stayed here for the F1 Shanghai and there is a short walk of 5 minuttes to the subway so all good there. On the downside is the clubfloor. Simply not worth...

Very nice hotel. Close to the main city and literally 100 yards to the tour bus stop. Walked to the Bund from hotel with ease. Check in and out was friendly and efficient. Room very nice. Bathroom was clean with toiletries etc. Bed comfortable. There are restaurants in the hotel but we didn't eat there so I can't comment on...

Group of friends travelling staying in 5 rooms on 4 different floors. AC did not work properly in any of the rooms. Unbearably hot. Hotel staff slow to respond and needs many reminders to do anything, but they were polite. Rooms show age of hotel. Location is great.

Very conveniently located across Nanjing road shopping area, walking distance from People's Square and it's metro station, and plenty of dining/street food options on Hankou and parallel streets. Go east on Nanjing, and you're a few blocks away from the Bund and it's world famous skyline. Other than that, the hotel is clean, service is good, room was comfy. Only...

This is a great hotel for business and pleasure. The price is right for the amenities. Gym included and doesn't smell like cigarette smoke. The buffet breakfast is about $15 and has a good assortment of foods! The reason I give it a 4 star is because I was looking for a last minute (1st night) snack and the restaurant...

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.
