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...

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days. The location is excellent for tourist. Everything at walkable distance. The rooms are reasonable sized with all amenities. They even had an umbrella in the room which really helped. They have an excellent breakfast spread. The concierge was very helpful, mapping out the route for all tourist spots.

This hotel is at the center of downtown Shanghai. We got a free upgrade to a suite which was small but comfy. From the window in the bedroom we could see the Oriental Peal Tower, which was about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. The people who worked there were friendly. The only trouble we had was that there was...

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.
