Over the last two years, we have stayed here 8 times, each for one night. We use it as a staging post for trips into China and elsewhere in Asia. (We are semi-retired so we combine short work stays in China with tourist trips around Asia). I have read some of the negative reviews and simply do not understand them except in the context of expecting western-norms and Marriott type service for Hampton Inn or Super 8 prices. It’s not a perfect hotel. Yes, the rooms are a little worn (but the décor is fascinating). The staff are not always super friendly, but their English is decent and they get the job done. Check out can be slow by western standards but it’s pretty normal for China, in our experience. The beds are hard, but that’s the same as every hotel we have ever stayed at in China. We think this is a perfect place to stay one night before/after trans-Pacific flights. It is incredibly cheap for a hotel in the terminal at one of the world’s major international airports. The hotel is in the center of the Pudong terminal above the Metro and Mono-rail stations, so you can walk from your arrival gate, and noise is not a problem. The hotel has two towers ("villas")--hotel and motel. Stay at the hotel (South Villa), It only costs a little more but the rooms are much bigger. Also, the airport (not the hotel) has a great baggage storage system (for up to 30 days at about $7 per day for a large bag). We make work trips to China so we stay here one night, leave our big "work" bag at the airport, spend a week or two exploring someplace in Asia, come back here, spend another night, then go to our work destination in China. Also, they have buffets open to non-guests for breakfast ($5), lunch and dinner at good prices, much lower than anyplace else in the airport. Food is fine, but not great.
