Holiday Inn Shanghai Vista

Reviewed May 31, 2013

Stayed at this Hotel on our Taste of China Tour with Virgin Holidays, Check in was quick and the rooms were very good standard and clean, staff good and most spoke English, concierge was very helpful during our stay giving a card out which you could show Taxi drivers for returning. Breakfast was excellent with both Chinese and Western style food, all you could eat. There is some shops and a market just up the road where there was the local McDonalds, a KFC further afield so you wont starve. Liked Shanghai a lot especially the Bund at night and the Nanjing road leading down to Peoples square for shopping. The Bund gets quite packed with people at night, also you need to be very careful when crossing the roads as Mopeds and Bikes ignore the traffic lights and Cars don't stop at non Light controlled pedestrian crossings, you see most of the locals dodging cars and bikes when crossing but no one seems to get hurt! Only criticism we had was the Hotel is not in the centre but Taxis are very cheap.

Room Tip: Higher floors give a better view, lifts are good and fast so not a problem. You need to ask if you w...

Stayed at this hotel as the first stop on the "Splendours of China" tour & was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were spacious & well appointed and breakfast was one of the best we had all tour. There are local eateries nearby as well as the obligatory KFC, McDonalds & Starbucks (left out of the hotel). When going out alone on our first evening the concierge made sure the taxi driver knew where we were going & taxi travel to the Bund was about £3.50 for the 15/20 minute drive. Bargain.

Room Tip: Some members of our group had rooms overlooking the frontage & were disturbed by noise from the...

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. I think this is the one of the great Holiday Inn hotels in Shanghai I've ever stayed. Hotel staffs did excellent service, I was surprised that I almost did not need to wait for calling taxi in the morning. And they do have a nice pool on the top floor of the hotel, bright and spacious! I love it!

Room Tip: Free WIFI in the lobby:)

Typical Holiday Inn in Asia. Tired but clean. Staff were friendly enough but the concierge made our stay! Always very helpful and made sure we get to where we are going by advising taxi driver before hand. We were given a card that has hotel name and directions in Chinese so never a problem of getting back. Bit out of the way but the price certainly compensated that. Taxis are dirt cheap so no worries. Great selection for the buffet breakfast and pool was lovely. If the standard of the rooms don't really worry you then everything else is great!

Stayed 4 nights on the executive floor. Arrived late after a long day of working and traveling. The staff made us very welcome and were very efficient in checking us in. Thanks to John and Nicholas for all there help. The rooms were very clean, modern and comfortable. Most importantly very quiet. Couldn't hear any noise which was very welcome. The staff in the executive lounge were wonderful and by the second day had our preferences remembered for breakfast which was very impressive. Congratulations to the GM Lucy and all the staff. A wonderful experience staying here and one that I will repeat and recommend. The location is good now with the subway being convenient and easy access to Hongqiao airport and train station.
Thanks to you all

This is a typical holiday inn, its in a great location and at a good price. What makes this stand out from the other holiday inn's is their great general manager called Lucy, from the moment i got up early for breakfast to returning from a days work and then finally going to bed after a couple of beers, she was there, inspecting everything, greeting everybody and making sure that this was a cut above the other Holiday Inn's around. The hotel its self looks like it could do we a little investment but its clean and comfortable and the service is great.

My fifth stay at this hotel. Clean, modern, good sized rooms with decent wifi. Always seem to upgrade your room here if a priority member which is good.

Restaurant service was slow but it was late on.

Good for business and really good value.
