We loved HJs the view of peoples square is the first thing that strikes you. We stayed in a one bedroom business suite so plenty of space. The rooms were spotless and staff a great help. Great gym and true the beds are hard but you soon get used to it. Free bottled water was a bonus. Crazy expensive laundry...

Not only is it adjacent to Nanjing Road but lso an easy walk to The Bund and to several Metro Stations. The rooms are well appointed but the mattresses are really hard - not a bad thing if, like me, you...

It's location one block from Nanjing Lu made it very convenient to walk to the Bund or People's Square. The metro station was only five minutes away and there was a good variety of attractions, shopping and restaurants in the surrounding area. The...

We picked this hotel based on price, location, and it being an American hotel. The staff was somehwat helpful. We asked for directions to certain attractions and we were given vague answers. The cards are nice for taxi directions, but sometimes the attractions entrances are hidden (this is something the concierge should have more information about). The breakfast is large...

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.
