This is good hotel but honestly not 5 star, room sizes are ok but air conditioning absolutely not good in rooms although they install small cooler in the room but not good enough for room cooling. High priced hotel but not near to many things.

Centrally located, the hotel has all the brick and mortar to make it a great hotel, but lacks heart. The front office was least helpful, the refills in the buffet were ignored, the housekeeping was cold. The room was medium sized and just about served the purpose of hopping into bed. The view from several rooms I saw were bad.

This was our last stop before leaving China. We had some free time and wanted to visit the famous 3.4-mile-long Nanjing Road shopping street. We discovered that a city bus stop is close to the hotel with a direct route to Nanjing Road but that coins are the preferred payment. It was a bit packed early in the morning. Also... More

It is an older hotels, but it is centrally located, not too far from Metro line. You can take metro from airport to reach Baolong hotel. They also serve quite good breakfast. It is not a 5 star hotel, it needs to be updated.

Staying in Hongkou

Neighborhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
