Stayed one week at hotel to take part in an exhibition at Pudong. The hotel is an extensive hotel complex with more than 10 buildings next to a golf driving range by the river. It is not particularly convenient for public transport because nearest subway is TangGiao on Line#4 which is a good 20 minutes walk. If you are prepared to take taxi, then this is a nice and quiet hotel with larger rooms and river view at a very reasonable price below US$100 a night. This hotel is situated in the EXPO2010 area which the authorities are still wondering what to do with after the 6-month long show, so expect a very quiet environment if you go walking.
Our team were pleasantly upgraded to larger rooms with two double beds in each room, and my corner room has a side view of the river. Although I asked for non-smoking room, I had to leave window open for 2 days to clear residual smell of smoke in room. Usual 4 to 5 star room facilities like fridge, kettle, hairdryer and even an umbrella in room, but mini-bar was a bit basic. In room internet is free via wired broadband, which is not fast but sufficient for emails. Wireless internet is available in public area but I did not try it. Breakfast is a good buffet spread but biased towards Chinese food. Staff are generally helpful even when busy, but do not expect lots of smile. Airline lost my luggage and porter was considerate enough not to wake me up at 2am when airport staff delivered my missing suitcase, he let me have a good night sleep and call at 8am. I will be happy to stay in this hotel again and enjoy the breakfast watching big ships sail down the HuangPu river.
