I can feel it being a Holiday Inn Express, but there's a smell of cigarette smoke in the rooms and in the public areas that stays in the air. Very good beds and nice to have a choice of pillows. The breakfast was acceptable, with a mix of western and Chinese food, although I don't think I'd be able to... More

The sizes of the rooms are okay. The hotel is just walking distance near carrefour and the mall. However, cars or cabs rarely pass along the street of the hotel but you can ask the front desk to call a cab. Since it is a budget hotel, they only have few food choices during breakfast and you may opt to... More

It is near Longdelu station of Metro line 11, around 10 minutes by walk. The room is OK, clean, comfortable bed. You are offered a complimentary breakfast, but don't expect too much. But I'm very much disappointed by its service quality from staff members despite it being an international hotel brand. I wonder if they are ever trained to be... More

I was booked in this hotel due to a last minute emergency and as this hotel is near to my business meeting place I agree.. The room are really basic despite it being a international chain or franchise.. The receptionist of this hotel does not understand the meaning of hospitality at all ...it was raining rather heavily and we requested... More

i stayed 3 days in this hotel in April. It is a basic hotel. First day our bathroom blocked making greater difficulties. People at checking counter is not friendly. When we asked they did not want to give us the wifi address. Morning breakfast is not great but manageable. There is a carrefour shop next to the bridge. That is... More

6 of us traveled together and had 2 separate rooms. Our room was great despite 3 of us in it! Pillows so fluffy and mattress very comfy (even the extra bed one) that it was hard to get up and go each morning. The room was just the right size, not too small nor big, but ok and even the... More

Nothing special, just okay for a short stay in Shanghai with tasteless Chinese breakfast. I have my instant oatmeal with me and don't go for that breakfast. For food there is a Carrefour supermarket about 10 min walk over bridge. Very close to metro station (Longde Road on brown line) - just about 7 min walk.

Hotel value is very good, and location is also quite close to central shanghai places. but most taxis won't know the address. Tell them "guo wu ning lu qiao" which means "after wu ning road bridge" and them steer them for sharp left turn. Metro Line 11 is 5-7 min walk away, but closes relatively soon, approx. 10pm. rooms are... More
