HIE Meilong offers the customary comfort and laid-back atmosphere one expects from a HIE. Clean room, firm bed, unobtrusive staff. Convenient to subway with short taxi ride. No wifi in-room. You have to go to the lobby for wireless internet access. Plenty of "local" sites to explore, easy restaurants and fast-food nearby. More of a business type place than situated... More

I was on a business trip and have to stay near the factory - so I didn't have much choice... I knew it's a budget hotel and so I calibrated my expectation but nothing prepared me for these: Cold water shower in the winter! I turned on the tap and waited and waited, it finally become lukewarm after 20 minutes!... More

I have stayed in this hotel 4 or 5 times in the last 3 years, both in winter and summer. The rooms have a/c but it is entirely controlled by the hotel, meaning everyone gets the same temperature (warm both in winter and summer). I travel to China often and understand that they tend to like it warmer; so when... More

We (2 colleagues and myself) were booked here for three nights, but only stayed for one... and that was one night too many... Things started a bit strangely when our taxi driver could not even find this place, even though he stopped and asked at least three people for directions. But since it was across the street from the Nike... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Meilong during a recent visit to Shanghai. I selected it because it was close to the home of a good friend who lived in Shanghai.
