I already made a positive comment for this hotel. Maybe it was luck. I came back for business and this time I was completely disappointed. An horible smell in the room, the air conditionning system working with a lot of noise, and the worst: the water in the shower was brown. Even after several minutes of letting the water go... More

This is a base level functional hotel at a good price (£40 a night inc breakfast) Clean room, good shower, parking, local restaurants in walking distance, efficient staff. The food and beverage area is like a take away. That's it in a nut shell.

I have traveled all over the world, and this is by far THE WORST hotel I have stayed in a very long time. Unfortunately due to the traffic in Shanghai, we had to use this hotel for a 3-day training. Poor breakfast, no room service, and very hot rooms. Going to try and identify another hotel for the next series.... More

Good location. Rooms are adequately furnished but starting to show wear. Staff is pleasing and efficient. Restaurant has good food but has a very limited menu for dinner. There are other restaurants around the corner or within easy walking distance. WIFI works great in the room. Overall a good stay

Being a budget class hotel don't expect much. Rooms are small & adequately furnished, standard breakfast not much to choose from, dinner can be a challenge. The restaurant and its menu is a big disappointment. Few good restaurants in neighbouring streets. Ideal for budget stays.

HIE Meilong offers the customary comfort and laid-back atmosphere one expects from a HIE. Clean room, firm bed, unobtrusive staff. Convenient to subway with short taxi ride. No wifi in-room. You have to go to the lobby for wireless internet access. Plenty of "local" sites to explore, easy restaurants and fast-food nearby. More of a business type place than situated... More

I have stayed in this hotel 4 or 5 times in the last 3 years, both in winter and summer. The rooms have a/c but it is entirely controlled by the hotel, meaning everyone gets the same temperature (warm both in winter and summer).
