I stayed over night to connect flights at PVG. I thought at first about convenience and considered staying at the Ramada. But it seemed overpriced and run down. So I looked a bit further and found the Royal international. I took my chances and I'm very happy about the choice. The hotel lobby is a bit gradiose. The service is... More

Very comfortable rooms, excellent choice of food at breakfast....from local to full English! Few minor points, bar unable to books to room or credit card one evening barmaid seem to panic when more than 2 customers turned up and breakfast only one coffee machine....but minor overall very good modern comfortable hotel, with shuttle bus to airport.

Only 50 RMB taxi ride from the airport. Great location for our first night when we just wanted a nearby hotel to crash and sleep. We had a couple of drinks at the Lobby Bar, service was excellent but selection of food and drink was pretty limited. Breakfast was included with our rate and it was a fantastic buffet with... More

I liked everything about my stay in the hotel-although it was very short (one night)-but I felt the luxury starting from reception to the spacious room and fully equipped bathroom. Loved it Recommended

We had a flight out of Pudong so I booked this hotel based off fact that it was close and provided 24-hour airport shuttle, at least that's what Expedia told us. When we arrived we found out that the shuttle WAS NOT 24-hours service but started at 6:00 AM. This did not affect our flight out but it would have... More

This is an amazing hotel for a stopover near the airport. The shuttle service runs frequently, the stuff speaks English and is very accommodating. Their rooms are quiet and the beds are very comfortable. The only drawback was that it's a bit way out from the city to go out to eat somewhere and the options for eating that they... More

This hotel is situated in the Chuansha district of Shanghai. If you have an early morning flight out of Shanghai PuDong (or expecting to arrive very late at night). This hotel has all the modern amenities you would expect. The rooms are comfortable and staff are helpful. I would definitely recommend it for a short stopover before or after a... More

Book the courtesy shuttle bus as the hotel is about 30 mins from the airport. When going to airport make sure you leave with plenty of time as check-in/security at Pu Dong is s-l-o-w! Not the hotel's fault and staff advised that an earlier shuttle bus rather than a later one would be sensible. Room was big but trendily gloomy... More

Shuttle yes, but only once every hour Breakfast very basic, staff typically chinese mentality (you will not be charmed). Rooms clean and fairly big - their security cameras are limited and does not serve its purpose
