This hotel was arranged through the airline as an overnight transit hotel and overall it was a reasonable choice.
The hotel is relatively new although quite a distance from pudong airport in the town of Chuansha. It's just over 20 min by free shuttle van/bus. We arrived late in the evening and the drive to the hotel was slightly worrying as the van drove past one deserted construction site after another before reaching the hotel itself.
Other than its isolated location the hotel was otherwise good. The standard room was spacious and relatively new. There was a huge bed and an equally cavernous bathroom. Breakfast was reasonably good although the staff insisted on only providing one breakfast coupon even though the room was a twin share and booking was for two (??!).
We felt this was a reasonable choice for a transit hotel. It's not particularly close to the airport although there is a free shuttle. It is certainly nowhere near Shanghai proper and probably not a great base for exploring Shanghai. We didn't have the time to explore the hotel as we simply spent the night and it is possible that the hotel had much more to offer had we stayed longer.
