Third time in the Ho Jo......its a good location for many things right in the centre of Shanghai. Try and get a room facing Nanjing Rd its a slightly better view if only for watching the locals doing Tai Chi in the morning.... The rooms are OK if a little dated in style but very comfortable. The bars are not... More

Location - perfect next to people's square and shopping pedestrian street, very center and next to all major attractions. Pool- indoor pool 5th floor with jacuzzi and gym - a bit dated and needs work. Rooms - very nice and comfortable, dated but ok, very hard mattresses, great view. Breakfast - very nice buffet, all u need, not enough fresh... More

Somehow this place has an allure, it has no special architectural merits yet it has something that makes you feel happy when you enter its portals. The staff are friendly and the service is warm and familiar. People remember you here which is something for so busy a place. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and well furnished. The bathroom...

Excellent service, room and location. We were here for 2 nights and thought it was decent value. Room was very comfortable spacious and had everything we needed. The hotel has quite a grand entrance and we thought it was very warm and welcoming. It wasn't exactly modern but that is down to the style - a more old fashioned but... More

I stayed at HoJo for almost a week for a business trip. I had an injury to my foot while I was there. The staff was really helpful. They also arranged for crutches and wheelchair so that I could move around easily and see the city despite the injury. A big thank you to the hotel management and staff!

I stayed at the Howard Johnson Plaza in Shanghai during a business trip in February 2015. The hotel is situated next to the Nanjing road which is one of the most fantastic shopping streets in Shanghai. The hotel itself is a high standard business hotel, with a great breakfast and a fair restaurant.
