Big Room, clean and very convenient: also good breakfast with a wide range or products, but they were no balcony in our room and not enough taxi around hotel as sometimes we waited 15min to found a car. Nice Staff

InterContinental Shanghai Expo is a very nice Hotel with good service and very nice staff. However, it is very far from the city center and you are not easily find taxis all the day. You better ask the hotel to arrange for the transportation and give you the location name in Chinese as almost no taxi driver can speak English

Looking for a nice calm and very comfortable business hotel? Stop looking and book at the Intercontinental Expo. It's got all the essentials, located 20 min from city center, it's calm and very peaceful. The down side is that you need to get a cab (long depending ob traffic) to go anywhere. You can actually take the ferry but then... More

Not exactly walking distance to the absolute centre of Shanghai but close enough. If you get a room facing towards the river, the views are excellent. It’s fantastic just sitting there watching the barges cruise by. I couldn’t find a great variety of restaurants close by but that is not to say there aren’t any. I found good street food... More

The hotel is ok but not like a intercontinental you can find in Europe or US. Service was ok. The breakfast was good. It was not as clean as I expected.

Arrived pretty late on last wednesday, the lady receptionist was very blunt in her speech and asked why do I have two passports as she cant find my details and appeared to be very impatient. Taxi driver cheated me and asked for 60yuan to the bus station.... Room service waited for one hour....terrible!

We stay in Intercontinental Shanghai Expo for 2 night because it is the nearest hotel from the Shanghai International Expo, where we attended a expo. Everything was great from the bedroom to the large buffet breakfast, where it was not that crowded.
