We really liked the Holiday Inn Express. Big room,twin beds,large bathroom with great shower and good european breakfast with a cook who makes fresh eggs and pancakes. We found a much more easy way to get from the airport to the hotel. First buy a 24 hour/whole day ticket for 18 yuan at the informationdesk at the metro station.Then take... More

Had stayed in this hotel a lot many times during my visit to Shanghai. 5 mins walks from Shanghai Railway Station and Metro. 10 mins taxi ride to go to downtown and shopping arcade of Shanghai. Service is really good and this is the cheapest Hotel of Holiday Inn i have ever stayed. Located in the heart of the city!

This is a typical holiday inn express set up. The rooms were comfortable but the location is not convenient . The taxi drivers refused to come to the hotel from people square and vice versa. The reception staff struggled to communicate in English but that is a pan China problem. The reception surely needs to be kept in a better... More

We stayed four nights and loved our stay. The comfort level of the room was just what we expected from a holiday inn. Breakfast was great with many options. Location was good close to metro, long distance bus station and train station. I don't know why people would complain about location. Two stops from peoples square and another three to... More

Holiday Inn Express wasn't expensive. The price includes wifi and a buffet breakfast, which was OK, at least there're an egg stand and coffee machine. The room was spacious, with a shower stand, safe, flat screen TV and two seated sofa. It's good enough for a short stay. It's next to a train station. For those who need to connect... More

Positives: big room, good shower, breakfast included, near metro station Negatives: location far from city centre (5km from the bund), crack window on #1421, breakfast plates are mostly chipped Overall, if you are looking for affordable (approx $45 / night) accommodation in Shanghai with a well known brand, this will be a good choice. Taxi is easy to get and... More

Breakfast is simple, but you can have scrambled eggs and considering the price of this hotel is breakfast great. + wifi + breakfast + location (near railway and subway, lot of street and fast food possibilities) - I think for the price of this hotel I could not complain anything

From check in to check out, everything was as smooth as butter. Very efficient and attentive staff. The breakfast was really good. The room was huge, like literally massive with great amenities for the price. Location was just beside the railway station, so connectivity was good too. Will be back here if I go to Shanghai again.
