Over two thousand years ago, Nanking was known Jinling, so the hotel at 58 Henan South Road is variously known as the Manhattan Nanking, see tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g308272-d187734… or the Manhattan Jinling. It is the same place, so the hotel reviews at the link above are valid.

East Nanjing Road is tourist trap shopping along with a very few great stores, including the Number One Food Store on the north side. Others have outrageous tourist prices, where you must bargain to even attempt a good price. You are better off in the "antique market" on west side of Old Shanghai near Fuxing Road, or in Old Shanghai itself south of Fuxing Road where there are few tourists, but you might still have to bargain. If you want T shirts and the like, go to the City God Temple, Yuyuan Bazaar, and bargain hard for tourist trinkets.

West Nanjing road is upscale, expensive shopping. Few budget hotels are in this area.

In my order of preference if u have only three choices would be Manhattan Bund Business hotel,Blue Mountain Youth hostel and followed by Man.Jinling hotel.

Manhattan Bund,just few minutes from Peace hotel and the Blue Mountain are the closest to the bund.They r about 10 to 15 minutes walk to Nanjing donglu.,so very close to the metro line 2 and 10 at Nanjing donglu station.Loaclity ,location and surroundings of both are good.They are of course a liitle bit farther to Nanjing xilu,having need to walk the stretch of Nanjing donglu before reaching Nanjing xilu.But its walkable n easy too.

Manhattan Jinling hotel at Henan nanlu is farther away been nearer to YuYuan,so its even farther to go to Nanjing road,even though in Shanghai everywhere is walkable for locals like us.It may b too taxing for foreigners.

Actually there are not much separating these two streets as they are in continuation to each other.

Nanjing donglu is more congested ,and been a pedestrian street where vehicles are not allowed entry.Many local shops here mostly selling cheap to mid range merchandise.U name it they have it.,like clothes,beddings,shoes,electricals,foods,medicinal hall,chopsticks,jewellery,pearl city etc etc.Some notable big malls dot this street like the Shimao mall,Hongyi,353 mall,Raffles.Many fast food chains like Haagen Das,KFC,McD,Pizza hut,Yashinoya,Ichisen Ramen with many other local chains.Very very congested with all sorts of people here tourists locals n foreign,expats,migrants,scammers ,etc etc.But the night view lighting is good n morning exercises with the locals daily.

On other hand,Nanjing xilu is more upmarket with more branded shops and malls.Less congested and more roomy feel with notable malls like Isetan.Plaza 66,Shanghai Center,City plaza,United Plaza,New World Cty,and many other branded shops along the streets like Cartier,Swaroski,Zara,etc etc.In fact there r too many branded shops along these two streets with a few within eyesights at any corner.Not much separate between staying at these two streets unless you are staying more farther along Nanjing xilu towards Jinga n area.

Other budget accomocdation whichyou may consider here are like the seventh heaven hotel,Charms hotel,Nanjing hotel,East Asia hotel.,Metropole hotel,Marvel hotel,New harbour serviced apartments.

The Manhattan Bund isn't a few minutes from the Peace Hotel. It's directly behind the Peace Hotel. Only 2 minute walk to Bund.
