Due to incredible the incompetence of Air China. I ended up at night in a city I hadn't planned on being in. Shanghai. I needed to catch a flight back to the US the next morning, so I need a place near the Pudong airport. I read a lot of reviews and decided on the Royal International. I got a... More

The hotel is located in a residential area with practically no services. Nearest shopping is 15 minutes away. This hotel is good for a Pudong transit but I wouldn't use it for anything else. Frindly service , a Japanese restaurant and a good gym, too.

This hotel is top notch with very comfortable rooms. As other reviewers stated it is not close to the air port but took a cab from PVG to the hotel for 48 RMB as I did not have the patience to wait for the shuttle bus as it is not as regular as other nearby hotels. However the shuttle service... More

This hotel was arranged through the airline as an overnight transit hotel and overall it was a reasonable choice. The hotel is relatively new although quite a distance from pudong airport in the town of Chuansha. It's just over 20 min by free shuttle van/bus. We arrived late in the evening and the drive to the hotel was slightly worrying... More

Close to the airport, free shuttle bus, staff were helpful, lovely bathroom, couldn't fault the room, apart from no English speaking TV channels, but it was fun watching the Chinese ones! Only thing I would say is don't bother to go for a walk, because there is nothing else in the local area to do. Nice hotel and unbelievably good... More

We have stayed here a few times on our work visits to Shanghai & I can't fault it. The rooms are very comfortable indeed. The breakfasts are tasty & the Japanese restaurant offers superb sushi. If you fancy a laugh on an evening you should try the KTV, we had the most hilarious night singing & didn't have far to... More

Really surprised at the quality of this hotel. Booked on Expedia and value very good indeed. Not so close to the airport but the shuttle takes only 20-25 minutes and is free. Extremely well equipped and comfortable room.

I just stayed at this property on the evening of March 29th prior to my flight back to the States out of Pudong on the 30th. I had looked at previous Trip Advisor reviews on the hotel but still was a bit apprehensive about staying there. The hotel more than met my expectations and was an excellent value. I would... More

Just left the hotel to go to Pudong airport, 15 minutes by taxi (rush hour) although there is a hotel shuttle bus service. Stayed in 4 other 5 star hotels while in Shanghai and this was one of the best after The Marriot. The service was the best I have ever received. Food in the main restaurant was excellent. Room...
