Depending on traffic the hotel is about 45 minutes from the airport. Once there the friendly staff will get you to the front desk and checked in quickly. The rooms are clean and depending on the type of room plenty of room to spread out and relax after a long flight. The gym has been updated and is more usable... More

I have stayed for one night in this hotel which is aging in the outset from reception to the elevator to the room. This hotel badly needs a makeover as the interior was bad and I could see the carpets were really worn out and faded. The bathroom is really antique looking. However the staff was friendly and helpful. The... More

Room clean and spacious, breakfast a mix of western and Chinese, bottled water provided free in room daily, free wifi In room. Location is out of the way, although the metro stops right next to hotel approximately 40p per journey, and taxis are very cheap in Shanghai about £4 to the bund. Limited dining options near to hotel although we... More

I stayed many times because it is in walking distance to train station. I am very happy with them. Friendly people. Fast checkin. Clean rooms. Really rich breakfast offering. I will be there in 2 days again.

The hotel is located very near to Shanghai Railway Station. The hotel is very visible from the main station (outside) oncourse - there are two towers, both with the big H at the top - however, actually getting to the hotel entrance is an exercise in guesswork! We wandered up and down steps, around shop corners and eventually discovered an... More

I could not join any sightseeing or enjoy free time, so my feedback is only based on the short stay inside the hotel as business traveller. Sleeping quality was very good; no outside noise in my room. WLAN and TV worked properly. Bottles of water available, as well other equipment like ironing equipment, safe and mini bar. The bathroom looked... More

+ Good location, cleanliness - Small rooms with even smaller windows (meaning bad view), wi-fi with problems, poor buffet (especially for breakfast), very small restaurant, careless staff. P.S.: Rooms (mine was unfortunatelly non-smoking) have a label that warn for a fine (!!!!) of 100RMB (~12 euros) if you smoke inside... I think this is unethical, unacceptable (for a tourist) and...

I have stayed here twice and will stay again. Staff and breakfast is excellent, a lot better than equivalent hotels in Beijing and rooms are a bit small but this is above average for shanghai which has many small hotel rooms akin to Tokyo and Singapore. One staff member took me to a hand of football after work which was... More

This hotel could be one of the first Holiday Inn in Shanghai. The location is treated as the downtown in Shanghai 20 years ago as it was right next to the Shanghai Train Station, a city was started around the train station/pier, China is no exceptional. However, Shanghai has changed a lot in the last 10 years, a few new... More
