Reviewed August 14, 2012

Arrived hotel at 7am, early check-in request could not be accommodated because housekeepers have not reported for work - there were no clean rooms. Waited at the lobby till 9am but was entertained by a Chinese movie playing on a small LCD screen. Could not fault hotel for this since they do not have round-the-clock housekeeping.

First impressions:

1. Hotel: Good amenities nearby, including a shopping mall just opposite the hotel. Metro station is incredibly near (just across hotel). Did not take the metro since taxi is cheap.

2. Lobby: Neat and tidy.

3. Room: Basic room is small for China standards. I was expecting room to be larger (more walk space). Since I was traveling alone, it did not matter. But I do foresee space issues for couples or at least, travelers with more baggage. I traveled with one cargo luggage and when luggage is opened, it blocked the entire walkway leading to the toilet.

4. Toilet: Excellent rain shower + wc with strong flush.

5. Staff: Very tired and overworked. Less than enthusiastic attitude.

Overall, hotel's location is great but be prepared to do some traveling on the metro or taxi if you wish to head to the heart of the city. The smell of cigarette is extremely strong since smoking in permitted indoors (lobby, lift landing, rooms). If you have zero tolerance for such smell, please go somewhere else.

FX Hotel is situated right opposite the National Stadium MRT line. Food and entertainment is within reach and there is a shopping arcade just a block down from where the hotel is. There is a very famous Japanese shochu bar serving authentic ramen and yakimon around the corner. It is a must try ! It's called Kota's Kitchen. Turn right when you exit the hotel and wall straight down until you reach the perpendicular road. It's on your right. The rooms are neat but can be small for those who are claustrophobic. If you're a non-smoker ask for the non-smoking rooms. You want to avoid the lingering smoke smell from the previous guest. Overall it's a neat and stylish boutique accommodation.

My husband and I have visited Shanghai twice in the last 1.5 years and both times were impressed with the value and location we received at this hotel. You get hot water, clean rooms, free internet, cable TV, comfortable/warm beds, free bottled water, and great customer service. The strange thing is that the bathroom is made of all glass, so if you are sharing a room with someone you aren't THAT close to, you need to draw the drape and stay on your side of the room. We didn't even have a door on our bathroom, so it is a very open feel.

The best part of this hotel is the location. It is situated a bit far from the Bund and the tourist attractions, but it's located across the street from the very easy to use train/subway system (we don't speak mandarin) and next to a lot of great/authentic Chinese food. Across the street from the hotel is a small mall, with 2 of our favorite restaurants, a Schezuan place on the top floor and a Yang's Fried Dumplings (must try) on the bottom basement floor. There's also a Happy Lemon in that mall if you like milk tea. On the right and left of the hotel within 1-2 blocks are lots of different dimsum style breakfast spots and bakeries. You will not go hungry.

On the corner there's a bank for you to exchange money (bring your passport), but be prepared for a line. If you are from the states and have Bank of America, you can go to a local China Construction bank and withdraw from the ATM with no fees.

Anyway, love this place and would highly recommend it! The price is also really reasonable!

Dirty, small room. Not much English speaking. Good place if you have to attend an exhibition. Lots of places to walk to and the sub way to next door.

Reception didn't really speak English, staff not so helpful and cold, except for the door bell guy who helped us to carry our suitcases from taxi to hotel and up to the room.

Lobby overall looked modern but stairs and some parts of the hotel looked worn-out.

Elevators worked fine.

Th room was very small, all cramped, quite dark. Our room was facing the street, but it was quiet enough there, so no problem to sleep at night.
The bedroom was so small and so unconveniently arranged that We barely had room to put our luggages and to move around. We always had to leap over stuff- even to turn on the light....
Bathroom has some see-through glass wall, and our bed was stuck to the bathroom glass wall, so not good for intimacy.

Cleaning ladys are very loud in the morning and don't really care if you 're still in your room or not... they just knock on the door whenever they fell to.

The only good thing about this hotel is its location, just facing the shanghai stadium subway station (distance can be very long in shanghai), and it was close to tons of restaurants and shops.
It's about 15 minutes away by walk from xujiahui station, where you have tons of malls and restaurants.

Since my last review we have been twice back at the FuramaXpress Hotel. It's still a great little Hotel (118 rooms). Sometimes it's comforting to know that things haven't changed. And so it is with this Hotel. Still friendly, English speaking staff at reception who are always happy to help and greet you with a smile. This time we chose to have breakfast in the restaurant on the 2. floor. Not bad for 25 yuan each, if you like mostly Asian food, (which I do) and if you have enough time to wait around until the toaster finally toasts your bread. :) The coffee is still awful but the tea is ok. The breakfast room staff could learn a lesson from the doormen though, as they are stoney-faced and not at all friendly. Not a good look so early in the morning !!! They definitely need some training in regards to replenishing empty dishes and cleaning tables after guests are finished with their b'fast.
I can still recommend the Hotel to other travellers and will probably go back many more times myself.

Room Tip: It's wonderful, to be able to open the windows if one wants to. But adjustable airconditioning w...

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in September.

The hotel had funky decor in the corridors and the rooms were comfy and well appointed. Our room had a king bed, a small desk and comfy office chair and a sofa chair. The tv had many channels including several English ones. The mini bar had a few basic things in it but there was a convenience store next door anyway. The lighting in the room was a bit dim.

The staff were really helpful. Our fridge was not working and in 10 minutes it had been checked and replaced. The staff really made our visit great.

The hotel breakfast was tasty but didn't have a huge variety each day so if you were there for longer it might get a bit boring.

The shower was lovely and powerful and warm, although the bathroom could perhaps have been a bit cleaner in the corners (it wasn't dirty just not sparkling clean).

There is free wired internet in the room which I didn't try and also a computer terminal in the lobby which you can use for internet. access

It is in a great location next to Shanghai stadium. It is directly opposite a subway stop (which is 4 stops away from the expo) and a 10 minute walk up the street to XuiJiaHui shopping area and subway station.

I would definitely stay here again if I visit Shanghai and would also consider staying at this chain of hotels in other locations.
