The hotel is quite nice, but quite dirty. The staff is sympathetic and you can have internet access in the room for free. The breakfast is quite poor. No real continental breakfast - almost just Chinese style food.

元留学生の意見です。このホテルは有名チェン holiday inn express のビジネスホテルスタイルの支店であります。値段は高くないで朝食も付いていて嬉しいんですが、スタッフの態度はちょっと..ですね。朝食は焼飯や、焼きそばや、トーストやウィナーや中華雑炊などの食類。しかし、一番文句を言うべきことはバスユニットの金具です: サビはどこでも見えますので、神経質の方ならここを避けたほうがいいと思います。 This Holiday Inn Express hotel is conveniently located just beside Shanghai Railway Station (Shanghai Huoche Zhan), and is served by railway, buses, metro stations line 1,3 and 4. Accessibility is good. That said, the morning breakfast is hardly catered towards the western tastebuds. There's a juice dispenser and a toast machine in case you... More

Stayed 3 days. Comfortable spacious room but no mini bar. Breakfast did not appeal to us. Helpful staff. Great location right next to Shanghai Railway Station and the subway. 3 stops to the People's Square.

We booked a standard room with king bed. When we arrived to hotel there is no free room in such category. We had to take room in more expensive category Hotel took deposit (on card) which is equal to price for staying there

Is this the best HIE I've been to? No. But I've stayed here 3 times and will again next month. Why? VALUE. It is the CHEAPEST Western branded hotel in Shanghai. By being part of IHG I know I will usually get a clean room and any problems I have will be followed up on by IHG. The staff has... More

The map on hotels.com is totally wrong (which is often the case for Chinese hotels). Why doesn't the hotel check its own info, even if it's not their website?! It would be simple to say that it is next to the train station!!! This would have saved me one hour! The hotel doesn't have much appeal: carpet in corridor and... More

As with Holiday Inn Hotel standards, room was big, clean, with all the necessary amenities. Location being next to the railway station is good. Biggest peeve was that wifi is not available in the room. Not acceptable for an IHG hotel as wifi was definitely expected.

Soft beds! A relief after all the hard beds we'd experienced across China! Lovely bathroom too with the nicest power shower. Breakfast was eastern style, lovely dumplings, but we did see a mouse run across the floor on the second morning!! Breakfast room was very busy both days with very few empty tables.
