It is comfortable and the Asian choices for breakfast are especially wide while the location opposite Yu Gardens metro... More

Nice rooms, great executive lounge and good service overall. Location is not particular beautiful (on a busy street near a weird courtyard/parking lot) but practical since the Yu Garden Metro station ist just 100 metros away.

Would not recommend this hotel. Stayed at the Renaissance in Bejing, which was incredible, we thought this hotel would be up to the same standards but by comparison this hotel is more like a Comfort Quality Inn or Holiday Inn.

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.
