I think the name of the hotel is rather misleading. The hotel is really not that close to Pudong Airport. It took me about 20 minute and cny65 of taxi fare to get to the airport. They do have a subway station in the vicinity but this subway line operating hours is quite limited.
If you have an early flight like I did or arrive after 5pm in Pudong airport, you will have to take the taxi. In which case, you may be better off staying at other airport budget hotel such as Motel 168, or stay closer to Pudong downtown area such as Century Avenue where the highway will take you to Pudong airport in about 20minutes too.
Other than the above point, the hotel itself provides value for money. The room is quite well equiped for the budget price it is offering. The room is a bit old but clean, carpet is stained but they provide you with fridge, toiletries, hot water kettle with tea and coffee, and free cable internet.
I didn't get to get around much but I notice that there is Carrefour within 5 min walk from the hotel. This would usually mean food, groceries and some shopping.
I have to mention that the staff is very helpful and friendly, but they speak very limited English. One more thing, they do not accept foreign credit card, so be prepared to pay cash.
