The interior of this hotel is great. The rooms are very clean and quiet. The breakfast buffet is very nice, very eclectic. The issue, as others have stated before, is the location. Taxiing into the city will run you over $30 USD one way, and taking the subway is maybe 60 minutes+ to the city centre (including walking time to... More

This hotel was well appointed but relatively far from downtown. The room was very comfortable and very clean. At $60 + tax a night (booked on Agoda) it was good value for money. Breakfast was good but the coffee shop nothing special.

This is a well used hotel, because lots of tour groups use this hotel. That does not mean the front desk service was good. But I do appreciate the lady that cleaned our room walked an extra mile to help me fix my shoe, and didn’t look for any tips. Location of the hotel is in a residential area. It... More

Nice hotel, kind staff. Breakfast could be much better. Really far away from downtown Shanghai, there was a mistake with the reservation and my company booked this hotel instead than the howard johnson in downtown shanghai. You need at least one hour by metro to reach the financial district, and you need a taxi to reach the closest metro station.... More

Our group stayed at this hotel for two nights as part of a 7 days China tour. Non of the air conditioners in our rooms were working. The temperature inside the rooms were 27 to 29'C, very uncomfortable. Request to non smoking room and deodorizing the smoking odor were not honored. The bed sheets have holes on it. There was...

Room #2109: The bathroom has opaque glass for one wall that turns clear when electricity is on, but it didn't work. Anyone using the bathroom can be seen by others in the bedroom. Contacted the front desk and showed the problem to a housekeeper, still took 2 hours before we got another room. Avoid it. Room #2108: My father got... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in early December 2014. The room was overheated. It got up to 29 degrees C. We could not sleep and it was very uncomfortable. We asked the staff to lower the temperature three time, their solution was to tell us to open the window. In Shanghai that means letting all the toxic... More

It is located very far from the city centre. In fact it is near the terminal station of Subway Line 6. There's a shuttle bus to city centre but it operates only 1 trip a day. It is cheap via subway to city centre - rmb5 one way. The walk from the hotel to the subway station about 15 minutes.... More

We were on a tour of the Shanghai and were booked at this hotel. Was not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprise by this hotel – not the Howard Johnson I expected. This hotel was about an hour from the airport and 45 min from Shanghai city center. The hotel room was extremely clean, bed was soft and... More
