If you are staying in Puxi area of Shanghai, you expect to be as close as possible to Nanjing road or may be on Nanjing road. This hotel is not in Nanjing road. It is about 15 minutes by a taxi to Nanjing road (Taxi is easily available from the entrance of the hotel ). The overall ambience of the... 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.

I chose this hotel because his hotel is near to InterContinental Puxi, which is my second hotel in Shanghai. Although I checked that there are mixed reviews about this hotel, I hoped that positive review would materialized rather than the other way. However, I experienced even worse situation than some of rather negative reviews on this site. From the start... More

On business for 2 days. Very noisy room. People in adjacent rooms making lots of noise after midnight and then at 5am. I had cigarette smoke coming into room from people smoking in corridor and adjacent rooms. It stinks.

This Holiday Inn will give you just what you expect, but will not surprise you. Good clean spacious room with fine breakfast. Location is good, close to metro, but in Shanghai probably you're going to take a taxi anyway (make shure you've got the adress in Chinese !!, hotelstaff will help you with the note to give to the driver).

I stay frequently in IHG hotels and this is the worst I have encountered. The staff seem friendly enough but the plumbing doesn't work, neither does the air conditioning and the communal areas are not clean. It simply does not do the basic things expected of a hotel. I'm very disappointed
