The Motel 168 chain are cheap & relatively clean. Not particularly comfortable bed, but had worse. Bathroom small & quite tired, fixed shower head which is awkward to use. TV has no English language channels. There is good Wi-Fi freely available to guests. For the location & price an overnight here is perfectly acceptable, sleep, shower & go. What do... More

This was my 2nd stay at motel 168 and I had just arrived from the US. I had some questions for the front desk workers such as the best way to purchase train tickets, or nearby restaurants. Although I heard them speak in functional English, while waiting in line, behind a Chinese couples back, they refused to speak it to... More

This was our 2nd hotel for this holiday (1st was in BJ) so we are able to compare the facilities of the budget hotel to our previous one. WIFI was not reliable and there was an unpleasant smell when you enter the hotel foyer (But it was something I smelled only when passing to enter and exit the elevator.) Rooms... More

We pre-booked this room with a reputable on-line booking company, yes the room had a window but opened out to an internal passage of the hotel. We had to keep the curtains closed otherwise everyone walking down the passage could look in on us. The room was smaller than we had had in previous Motel 168's. They have a crazy... More

Original decision was to stay for 1 day. But had to extend to 2 days because I had no time to look for a better hotel. For new travellers arriving at Shanghai Railway Station, it is a safe and decent choice for one night. And if you have time, step out and choose from the many hotels around this location.... More

Cheap, clean and safe is this no-frills hotel of the Motel 168 chain. Train stations are not the most charming areas anywhere in the world and so you also won't find anything charming here. However the area is relatively safe (just beware of pickpockets) and there are some restaurants and some shopping near the hotel. Just opposite the hotel is... More
