You hear all these praises about the Bund as the Hip area in Shanghai and then you find a hotel in the Bund called the Bund, and it seems a no brainer to stay there. well think twice. this hotel is out-dated, has small and ugly rooms, the worst breakfast in town and mediocre service`

The hotel is ok, the food is average, the location is very good. The worst thing of all was the staff, we spent hours to convince them to move us to a non-smoking room (apparently if you don't specify it in China you get a smoking room by default) and to change a reserved dinner from one night to the...

I am a young traveler, so I am always looking for cheap hotels. I found this hotel on booking.com and the price seemed right and I was splitting a one bed room with my older traveling friend. The hotel said they could provide an extra bed for me and on arrival we were told our room was too small for...

The hotel is not directly on the Bund, just outside but well located and close to People's Square. Very efficient staff both on check in and check out, comfortable and quiet rooms. We spent just one night in Shanghai and the hotel ticked our boxes.

Maybe because it's a city, but from the minute we arrived the staff just couldn't be bothered. We arrived at night and the young man lounging at the desk couldn't be bothered to get up and even open the door until I'd pulled three suitcases from the taxi and put them in reception. No-one seated us at breakfast, although a...

I stayed here in November 2016 for 4 nights while on business trip. I chose this hotel as I found the location walking distance from my office address. But I was very disappointed with the hotel on a whole. The room was very small with just a single bed in the room, hardly any place to walk, no place to...

Hotel was fine, got there taking subway from Pudong to East Nanjing stop. Was close to Bund as was there for the marathon. Room was clean, non-smoking, and bathroom was high end. Five or six English channels on the television. Neighborhood is a little rough, got propositioned on front steps of hotel.

The Bund Hotel is definitely well located, close to the Bund and the subway. The rooms are clean but the decor is a bit old-fashioned. Service is on the average level and the staff don't speak English very well. I tried to connect to the wifi which supposed to be free but I couldn't and the ladies at the reception...

We enjoyed three night stay at this modern hotel. The room was large and well fitted out. We stayed on the twentieth floor so it was very quiet. Bathroom amenities were both modern and clean. Beds were comfortable. Free wifi provided. Handy to local shops and restaurants. Breakfast was ample and included all selections one could possibly require. Highly recommended.

We were on the 20th floor which helped with any street noise. we could not hear anyone in the adjoining rooms or folks in the hallways! Very pleased with the breakfast. I had soup that the chef could add the ingredients you wanted to while you waited. There was an excellent choice of what I would call "lunch" fare along...

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.
