I booked this hotel via Agoda and stayed one day. Although breakfast was not included without mention, and they would not let me check in early, the stay was fine. Upon checking out next morning at 0700 am however, I took one of the taxidrivers who were sitting inside the hotel lobby with the hotel staff, assuming that the hotel...

The location of this hotel made shopping and hitting the sights easy and within walking distance, however, the front desk attendants were not very friendly and anytime I asked them a question (which was only three times) they acted as if I had asked them to give me their first born child. It was very annoying and frustrating as the...

The hotel is a great location – close to the Bund area. The staff was very friendly and hospitable. Breakfast was included with the room and was a large buffet with an omelet bar. Our room was very clean and modern. The bathroom was quite large with a separate shower and bathtub. We had free wi-fi at the hotel. I...

I used The Bund Hotel as a springboard to see friends in Shanghai and Hangzhou. Do not confuse this hotel with others having "Bund" in their names. The Bund area along the river is a carryover from the days when Europeans dominated Shanghai. You can see this in the architecture along the HuangPu River. Their address: No. 525 Guangdong Road,...

This is definitely not to be compared to international chains but the hotel is clean, efficient, and staff is very helpful. Just not used to having people smoke all around you and having 3 dedicated non smoking floors where people still smoke in the hallways... Location, quite convenient to walk 5 mins to the shopping street. If you are a...

The room is acceptable and the bathroom is nice. However the bed is so hard, I got some back pain. What really annoyed me is the cashier from the Chinese restaurant on the 2nd floor, I think. It was my last night so I have only dollars with me and a credit card. All the places we went accepted credit...

The counter/bell/concierge service is decent, presumably due to the business clientele the hotel may be targeting. Airport transfers are somewhat expensive - avoid if you have the time to book or take public transportation. The single rooms are standard furnished but very small. The twin/double rooms are a reasonable size. In-room, wired internet access is available but chargeable. Breakfast is...

This hotel has a lot going for it, but just isn't quite managed right. The front desk staff spoke limited English and were none too friendly or accomodating. During check-in, the bellhops did not offer to help with our many bags. The concierge was great. Most annoying...expensive Internet, expensive coffee and no breakfast included. I also lost some items that...

We are just back from a 3 night stay at this good 4 star hotel in a convenient location, a couple of blocks from East Nanjing Road and maybe 4 blocks from The Bund. For Aussies who like to eat at M on The Bund it's just a straight walk down Guangdong Lu to get there. Our non smoking room...

I stayed here for 10 nights in June. Only 3 floors are non-smoking. I had booked a non-smoking room on the executive floor, which, I found out when I arrived, doesn't exist. I was immediately offered an upgrade to a suite on a non-smoking floor, with complementary internet access. A steal at $80 a night. Staff, particularly the Concierge desk,...

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.
