We stayed at the holiday inn downtown Shanghai for 5 nights. The hotel was in a good location, close to the main railway station. The rooms were nice and modern, however they did smell like smoke so I would recommend requesting a non smoking room. The breakfast was great and plentiful. The hotel staff spoke little English, but were quite... More

The hotel is actually two sprawling high rise structures connected via an underground parking structure. I was confused by the two street addresses before arriving but this explains it. Near the Shanghai rail terminal and several subway lines, this is in an area with numerous business hotels. Most of Shanghai's business or visitor attractions are a short ride away on... More

Stayed here with 3 friends (2 per room) in mid-December and felt it was fantastic value. We paid 408rmb between the 2 of us and expected nothing particularly special. This led to us being exceptionally surprised when we arrived, having completely underestimated the hotel due to its low price! The lobby was very impressive, especially with the large Christmas tree... More

My room @ 9th floor is a new fresh renovated room @ Plaza Wing. Unfortunately the noise from the street is very disturbing, i notice it has double glass window. Everything works well in the room, except the window itself. Believe it is just a standard renovated room. Internet is fine and fast. No need password even. It is around... More

Hotel is really dated though it's in a great location with the metro being 200 metres away. Breakfast was satisfactory however well below standard acceptable for a supposed 4 star hotel. For coffee lovers, ask for a fresh machine coffee.

This a large hotel, close to the Shanghai railway station. It is not "shiny new", but overall it is well maintained and the staff have a good English skills to assist when required. The club floor has a decent selection of food and drinks in the evening and the breakfast covered all the basics. Of particular note is the English... More

This was our second stay here, although this time in the Plaza wing. The service is this hotel is better than average, and although the rooms are small, they are perfectly fine. What stops this hotel getting a better score from us is the air-conditioning. Our last stay was in spring, and it was far too hot in the room.... More

We spent five nights at the Holiday Inn Downtown during two separate stays in November and December. We first began using the hotel in May 2013. Since that time, it’s been our hotel of choice for stays in Shanghai. We always book an Executive Club king room (non-smoking) and typically receive an upgrade to a spacious suite; a very nice...
