“Good value thoughtful hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Service:
The staff are fairly by-the-book, typical of larger hotel chains. Most are friendly and helpful, despite my broken mandarin. There was some confusion with the deposit and the elevator keys when one of the seemingly more senior staff was not as pleasant.

Room:
The room is spacious for the price, clean and comfortable. It is fairly well stocked with slippers, toothbrushes, combs, etc. The decor is pleasant but basic. It's on-par with most well-known business hotel chains for a lot less.

Location:
The hotel is only a few minutes walk to the closest subway station. It is fairly walking distance (approx. 15-20 min) to many sightseeing attractions.

Stayed 1 night in this hotel but wished I could have stayed longer! Checked in past midnight but there were staff on one who processed my check-in very promptly.

The room was very spacious and clean. The room had facilities like a water boiler and hairdryer too! Was expecting the bare minimum for the price I paid for the room.

Location was good, with food hawkers along the street easily accessible to grab food for breakfast. A supermarket was nearby and the nearest train station was 2 junctions(5-10 mins) away.

Definitely will come back if I do return tp Shanghai.

My sister and I stayed here in June 2012 and were pleasantly surprised at how nice the interior was and how clean and spacious the room was. They provided a kettle, toothbrushes, toothpaste, comb and slippersand a soap dispenser in the ample sized shower. Quiet. We had to give them 200yuan, from which they deducted 25 yuan (less than $4) each for breakfast and then gave us back the change when we were leaving. The staff speak little English, but we managed to find our way around by pointing to maps . The metro is clean, fast and efficient and the nearest one to the hotel is called Dashijie. When you go out of the hotel turn right then left at the second street on the left; cross over the road and the station is up a little way under the McDonald's sign. Must see in Shanghai is the Yuyuan Gardens, which is fabulous, the Bund, but go at night time and if you get off the metro at the Science and
Technology Station there is a huge market right there. Someone took us exactly where we wanted to go to buy various things. Loved Shanghai! People speak very little English so have some translations with you and a decent map! Enjoy!

Room Tip: Make sure you have the hotel written in Chinese to show the taxi driver. Our room was away from the...

Stay at Jinjiang Inn was fab....very convenient location just at the start of Huaihai Road and also in the middle of Yunnan Lu Food street. tried many good local food around the hotel.....
U have famous Jianbao, cold dish chicken, hotpot places all around. also a lamb kebab stall where everyone is queuing. for breakfast, the cafe next door is not bad.
The hotel is also a short walk to the old town where u can explore the morning markets where you see local culture and life. very interesting! U can say this location is near both the new and old shanghai.
Its in the heart of town and all the places of interests are easily accessible by taxi here. dun bother to take the subway nearby, because everything is really quite near by cab:)

rooms - spacious, clean, modern.....the value at 300rmb/night is unbeatable. front desk service is also fine. free internet access in the lobby :)

Budget hotel with good location. About 15 mins taxi ride to XinTianDi if you are a party goer, this hotel would be ideal for you. There is no wifi inside the room except at the common area downstairs. You would need a laptop to surf internet inside the room. The Inn only provide disposable paper cups. Have suggested to the Inn if they can consider to include the bed blankets, spoons and cups (not the disposable type) which travellers can wash the cups after using. Easy access to a few places of interest which I did not have much time to explore as it's just a 2 days' stay at the Inn.

Room Tip: Non smoking rooms are located on the 7th floor.

I stayed here for 4 nights over the 2011 new year holidays in a standard room. From the moment I entered the hotel, i had been impressed by the hotel and its service staff. Despite its cheap room rates, the hotel has been professionally managed with a clean interior and nice cosy rooms. All areas within the hotel was spot-clean and looked new and this alone justified the costs that I paid for the stay.

Although the standard room is a little small, I did not feel uncomfortable. The room is well-lit with all the essential equipment including airconditioning, hairdryer, television. Two bottles of water were provided free each day.

The location of the hotel is good and it is a five minute walk from the nearest metro station. This station is just a stop from the People's Square station, an interchange that connects 4 metro lines. It is close to many restaurants including Mcdonalds and some that serve traditional chinese cuisines like xiao long bao.

Overall, the hotel has indeed exceeded my expectation. It is a 3 star hotel that provided a 5 start stay.

Stayed here for 3 nights in October (10th floor), and liked it so much we came back when we stayed for 6 nights in November (9th floor). The stay on the 10th floor seemed slightly better than the stay on the 9th, but both rooms were very new, very clean, and very well-kept.

Toothbrush and toothpaste, paper cups, bottled water, and disposable slippers provided and replaced daily. Bring your own conditioner, but they do have a combination shampoo/body wash for you to use. Hair dryer, electric water kettle, A/C in room. Secure: Touchless room cards operate the elevators, and automatically select your floor. Wired internet is available in rooms. WiFi (ask front desk for password) and an internet-connected computer (standing only) are available in the lobby. Housekeeping staff is very friendly and courteous.

Location is wonderful - many decent restaurants and shopping in the area, and no problem wandering around even after dark. Dasijie Station on #8 subway line is a few blocks away, no sweat. If you like walking, though, People's Square, Shanghai Museum, and Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street aren't too far away. If you need a cab, the corner of Huaihai East/Yunnan South is a good place to flag one down.

Clientele seems a mix of domestic and international travelers (more domestic).

Things to note: Hotel name is "Jinjiang Inn," as in jinjianginns.com . 10th floor is only accessible via one of the two elevators. Maximum one key card issued per room. The bathroom inexplicably pools a bit of water in strange locations - not enough to be a bother. A few mosquitoes, probably let in when housekeeping props the door open to clean the rooms.

Room Tip: Believe the rooms on the 10th floor are newer.
