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.

The hotel was very nice - it was a business trip that I was on, so I saw the hotel, the office and back every day. Cleanliness was excellent, everything would be as you expect. The construction of the building leaves a bit to be desired however this is not a fault of the hotel.

Buffet breakfast was great. English is tricky but we were able to overcome this with our translate app on a couple of occasions. The room was large and clean. There is a supermarket close by and also a small mall within walking distance. Good business hotel and well situated.

Buffet breakfast was very good. English was barely understood by most of the staff, so communication was tricky but not impossible. The hotel feels like it is still in the 1920s and I'm not sure if that was by accident or by design, but either way it is a really nice environmen

Besides the spacious room, this hotel is near Nanjing Road of Shanghai, a bustling commercial straight street that you can shop and eat.

The breakfast was great, I have a good conversation with one of the Brazilian cook from Sao Paulo, discussing pao de queijo.

We were on a business trip for three days so it was indeed a pleasure to have been upgraded to an executive suite. The hotel was lovely and at a great location. The rooms were beautiful. The gym was well equipped and you top it all it was located very centrally. We loved out stay

Any connecting room?
I suggest you ask the hotel directly- I was aline so no need for an inter leading room. My room was very spacious, big king size bed, desk, easy chair and ottoman. Bathroom had large separate stand up shower, separate toilet, double basins. Very well decorated.

How far from this hotel is Shiliupu wharf or Qihuangdao wharf as I wish to take a river cruise ???
Does hotel provide conversion power adapters and do you have coffee and tea making facilities - we will be there in May, Thank you
There is a hot pot in every room that will boil water in minutes and most hotels in Shanghai will have instant coffee packs. I use the hot pot and take packs of my own instant coffee. Everything you want can be found in China. Instant coffee is in every grocery store. The problem is that unless you can read Chinese you can't even find a grocery store. Furthermore, asking where the instant coffee is can be a real problem. Take some with you. Take some packs of instant oatmeal for a quick breakfast for when you are tired or late or just do not want to eat in the restaurant. The packs are convenient and easy to carry.

"If you are willing to pay a little extra, upgrade to the 7th floor for a great room and numerous other perks."
"Get the Suites, they are worth it. A short walk to Peoples Square and The Bund."
"Don't choose any room. Run to any other hotel"
"We faced north - lovely views of City. A few rooms face into atrium only. Probably avoid those."
"Ask for a view of the adjacent square."
