Reception service is unprofessional, they need to concentrate on their customers more than their petty problems, this is a local hotel with an international brand name. Bathroom needs a deep clean, the grouting in the shower has black mould.

Decent little hotel, nice and quiet, not overflowing with tourists. My room was a little tired around the edges by clean and tidy. The location is good for shopping as it is very close to all the big names on Huai Huai road and access to the Metro. I only used the restaurant once and we were the only people... More

Hotel staff very helpful and dealt with every need whether taxi request, dinner bookings or general enquiries. The biggest let down for were lack of adequate chill out spaces.

I have been staying at the Howard Johnson's Huaihai location on and off for 2 years now and I still will continue to stay there. The location is really good as it is nearby a metro, and within walking distance of really great spots including a brand new great mall (complete with Apple Store). Be aware that this hotel is...

The location of this hotel is great, one block away from the A1PM mall and many stores close by. The staff was very friendly and polite, they helped us get a taxi and guide us to where we wanted to go. Room very clean and spacious, the shower had some mold though. Noise was not a problem at the room... More

This hotel is a bit of a gem as it is not swarmed with people hanging out in the lobby or jammed with tour groups. The location is extremely convenient for visiting Jing'an district. Steps away from shopping, eating, public transportation and night life. Can walk to the heart of the French concession in just a few minutes. The rooms... More

Living as an expat in Xiamen going to Shanghai really is going to the big city. It gives you a chance to do some shopping, stock up on Western DVD's, have great salad or mexican meal - in short enjoy some western treats in an Asian city. Howard Johnson Huaihai has become my hotel of choice in Shanghai because it... More

Don't bother with the breakfast, not great. Excellent location, easy to get around, interesting area. It was my first stay in China, so I was slightly intimidated by the range/selection of hotels, but this was a safe and pleasant experience. I'd stay there again.

I stayed there for a couple of days in March, its located in middle of business district. Being a vegetarian I found good enough eating options in the hotel and if you explore there are a few nice eating joints around the hotel.

I regularly stayed at Howard Johnson in Shanghai, from 20010 to 2013, because it was next to my old office. the first thing that strikes you is - is this really HoJo's? it's a relatively new hotel, few bells and whistles, but just clean, efficient, effective - and great location. the rooms are standard in most places in the world,...
