Was happy with the facilities of the hotel and the clenliness it offered. As an Indian, was not content with the breakfast options (you think you eat non-veg, but in China i wouldn't say that). Tripadvisor needs me to write some more to accept my review but am done.

Before I start, be warned, if arriving by train be sure to exit the station by the NORTH entrance otherwise there is a long uphill walk to the hotel. Don’t make the mistake we did by leaving the station by the southern exit and spotting the Holiday Inn logo on a building and then aiming for it. To our cost... More

Yes, this hotel is near the railway station however, it is on the backside and about a 10+ minute walk to line 4 & 1.... Once the metro and station are closed its a pain to get to, no concise path. We had to take taxis back each night.There is absolutely nothing to see or do within walking distance and... More

We stayed there for 1 day only. The rooms are quite big with large windows for the panoramic view of the Shanghai skyline. Shanghai Main (Old) railway station with McDonald and KFC are within 2 minutes walking distance. The Bund is not far away. The breakfast is not bad but few choices. Wi-Fi is patchy.

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.
