We booked two nights for an extended stopover on our flight to Sydney from London, and stayed here, there was some initial confusion finding the hotel (exit 4 North square on the Shanghai railway station metro) but once we arrived we were really impressed with the room. We overlooked the train station and while there was some noise it definitely... More

I stayed in this hotel many times in last 4-5 years despite being very basic , just because it's location. It's adjacent to Shanghai Railway station, Long distance bus stop and Metro!! It's very clean, very cheap (~$55-75)and breakfast is average(bu free/inclusive). For a business traveller or budget traveller with / without family; it's a good option. In room wi-fi... More

The hotel itself is nothing special. it’s a standard holiday inn. The room I stayed was really good. The bed was comfortable, and we had a city view room. our friends unfortunately was given a room overlooking the train station, which is apparently a bit noisy; So during check-in ask for a room overlooking the city. It should be noted,... More

Close to the main railway station and associated subway station, the only thing to see within walking distance is the 50 Morganshan Rd. modern art district (if you can navigate!). It can be seen from the upper floors of the hotel, but there is no direct route to get there as it is on the opposite side of the creek.... More

This was a very clean hotel with Wi-Fi only down in the lobby. It worked well down there, but it would have been more convenient to have it in the room. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Lots of room and the bathroom was good sized. Breakfast was included and fair at best. Not much to chose from and most of... More

I stayed at this hotel for several days. This is a good practical hotel in a central location with serious management problems. It is situated about a ten minute walk to the Main Shanghai Train and Metro stations. So you can travel anywhere with ease on the METRO, train or inter-city buses. Taxies are relatively abundant and cheap. The team... More

So we booked this hotel because it was relatively cheap. But we didn't realized it was pretty far from the central area. Although far, the location is good because there are several train lines connecting to Shanghai Railway Station metro. We had a direct train to most of our destination. Walking distance from hotel to metro is about 5-10 mins?... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in September 2014, and having read the previous comments on Trip Advisor were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were lovely and spacious and we had fantastic views over the city - we were in room 2220. The hotel is quite a way from the tourist areas, but the taxi's are so cheap- often... More

We were booked in this hotel by the local Chinese agency that helped organize our 2-week trip to China which included a few days exploring Shanghai. While the hotel is conveniently located near the train station and 3 metro lines, there is really not much else of interest to tourists within walking distance unless you are looking to dine at...
