Um....tired hotel, room and bathroom basic and out of date....staff were ok and room ready even though we arrived early AM. As a part of a package I had no choice but to come here.....not sure if i was an independent traveller that I would be here.

great point is that its very near to the metro line 1... and has shops and eateries next door... but the hotel was just average... breakfast variety and quality was just average... rooms were clumsy and small and bathroom fittings were part broken... plus dont ask the hotel to call a cab/taxi for you... the cab / taxi will charge...

... however the Shanghai Downtown Hol.Inn can't anymore compete with other Hol.Inns I experienced in China and worldwide. But the IHG-Management is already aware of the deficits and trying to improve the room quality of this ageing hotel. Nevertheless, the hotel is still sufficient for short transit-stays, breakfast was up to standard and the respective venue on the first floor... More

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
