Usual Chinese local hotel standard. Expect rooms smelling of stale cigarette smoke and spotty carpet. Upholstery is in need of replacement. Nonetheless, the bed was clean and quite comfortable for the 3 nights i was there. The room itself was clean too - I suppose its an old hotel, which is why carpet, upholstery and ventilation system need some upgrading.... More

Rooms are old , but clean . They have another Hotel adjacent to Galaxy by the name Rainbow , which... More

I have to admit that I am somewhat of a hotel snob, but am reasonable when traveling overseas. This hotel is disgusting. The lobby looks very nice at check in, but the minute I got off the elevator I knew this would be an experience. The carpets are filthy from the elevator into the rooms. I have stains all over...

This hotel looks very impressive on the outside. The facade, the lobby, coffee house all look pretty classy. Rooms however, a little worn. Nevertheless service was good from reception, concierge, chambermaids and coffee house. Be aware for those who hates warm rooms, they turn off the aircon during autumn and spring seasons, hence only room temperature wind is coming our... More

Very conveneint from Pudong airport with a direct bus link, not far from Hongqiao airport too. Good access by the highways and subway station is not too far away. Warm service and the staff are eager to please. Rooms are clean and a good value for the price paid. Will recommend this hotel for the airport access and good service.

Nice and courteous staff and most of the key people speak a fair amount of English. Room is a bit outdated and needs renovation but cleaning is good. Expect a hard Chinese style bed. Biggest complaint about the room was the slow and unstable internet connection both via wifi and cable. Breakfast buffet is uninteresting and quality of food and... More

We were checked in by our hosts using their account info. Even as we presented our room's keyless card, we were prevented from taking our breakfast as they said we were not the registered party. The restaurant's staff got our names and we gave them our host's contact number, yet they did not want to call claiming that the hotel's... More

Good location. Super close to Obama club. The staff hardly speaks any English though. Room service food items are cheap. The bed is super hard. Very uncomfortable to sleep. The hotel needs updating. You can tell it's old. Carpet kinda stinks and wallpaper starting to peel. The ac hardly cools the room. Staff couldn't do anything about it so they... More

The Galaxy is close to subway stations and relatively easy taxi distance from the combined local train and airport hub. There are convenience stores within 5 minutes walk and the Maxdo mall nearby has Italian and Korean restaurants that are good and reasonably priced. The Bund is on the same subway line as is the technology museum and associated shopping... More

Very busy hotel, difficult to get a table for breakfast. Big rooms, clean, quiet. Had a room on a no-smoking floor, no cigarette odors. Location is okay for business, but not close to most tourist locations like the Bund or popular shopping centers. Most of the staff can speak some basic English. Overall ok for a business stay but not... More
