This hotel is a good budget option close to longde rd station. Rooms are clean and in fair condition. Quiet location. Breakfast is poor. Service is also poor. Dont expect them to call a taxi and any request for information expect to be ignored. Staff only capable of check in and out.

This hotel was pretty average, standard things in the room etc, however the rooms were clean, breakfast buffet was good. The location wasn't smack dab in the middle of all the happening places. The staff also didn't have the best english knowledge, but ok place for what we paid. There is a mall down the road though.

I stayed at this hotel with a colleague for one night, a layover between my arrival at Shanghai from Pakistan and my flight to Shenzhen.

Hotel exterior is good but lack of vibe when you walk into the hotel. Staff was nice and friendly. My corner room was average size and dated, bathroom was tiny and towels need to be replaced, poor sound-proofing; the good part was the view, facing the river and residents house, feel calm and peace.

Good hotel. Location good. Very clean. Good spread for breakfast. Limited choice for lunch /dinner. House keeping services very prompt. Value for money. Will like to stay again. Near a scenic channel and a bridge. Hotel staff quite helpful.

I'd stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Putuo, Shanghai, before, in (I think) 2007 and 2011, and it definitely met my needs. Rooms were well cared for, and it was possible to reserve a non-smoking room. Breakfast was fine (although definitely not fancy), and wifi worked perfectly (except for the Chinese censorship problem--not the fault of the hotel!). Location... More
