Located in a central location, the hotel is nice. When i stayed here, it was undergoing renovations. These renovations did not hinder the property, only the exterior. Being a Spire member, the executive rooms are suitable; not great compared to other IHG properties. I would have stayed at the InterCon across the street had this not been a last minute... More

Hotel Holiday Inn Express, Minhang District, Shanghai 201108 P.R. China. I found this hotel to be below average! I wonder if the IHG group really carers for its reputation. The reception area was very shabby, full of boxes, papers, files etc. It was as if one is visiting a ware house! The rooms too were below expectations and not clean.... More

The room is quite small and dim. But it was clean, bed very comfy, decent WiFi connection. Really good location - just few meters away from a subway station (around 20minutes to the Bund) and a train station. I did enjoy my stay there.
