Haode Wanyuan Hotel
Ranked #2,541 of 5,161 Hotels in Shanghai
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Checked in late at night without a problem. Overall impression was that the place had not been well maintained for a long time. The room smelled like an ashtray. There was a cigarette butt on the carpet in the hallway.
The room was a suite, but very small bedroom, very small bathroom.
A lot of traffic noise through the night did not help.
I was offered a different room the next day, but decided to move to a different hotel.

Room Tip: Stay at a different place

Stayed here on a business trip in July 2012. Check in was quick although no one on reception spoke any English. Fortunately a Chinese colleague had booked my room so after handing over my passport my details were quickly found. Was able to check in at 9am which was nice after an overnight flight from UK.

Room was very large with super-king bed. Very firm bed but clean bedding and duvet rather than sheets & blankets. Carpet on floor had a lot of stains which was a bit off putting. Small bathroom, no bath, but shower was fine. Small fridge in room and strange seperate kitchen area which I didn't use but had gas hob, microwave & sink.

Large old TV in room but didn't use, wired Internet access worked but was very slow. No WIFI.

The 3rd floor should have gym, steam rooms, library, bar etc but all locked up and clearly not been open in months - very dissapointing.

2nd floor restaurant was OK. Had breakfast a couple of times but nothing to write home about - buffet style attempt at western fused with Chinese! Dinner was pleasant enough and reasonably priced by western standards, but not cheap by Chinese.

Air conditioning in room was very noisy. Options are no sleep because of the noise or no sleep because of the heat.

All in all not a bad experience but should have paid £30 a night more for better or £50 a night more for really quite nice hotel in much nicer area. I paid £52 per night for upgraded room (apparently!)

I took English tea bags, coffee, sugar and porridge pots which were a God send. Bought milk from little shop opposite hotel.

We ended up here as no other hotel rooms available at a decent price due to some conference. The entree, lobby and corridors are not looking that fresh anymore but the room is very good. We booked a business room, it was spacy and also had a separate kitchen. Free wired Internet with reasonable speed. Very good beds. Didn't try the food or the gym. Overall a good room for a decent price, around $75 per night and 5 minutes walk from the subway station. I will consider staying here again. Be aware of all the spicy girl bars across the hotel.
Note the hotel entry is NOT at Pudong Avenue.

We stayed there one night. Checked in, took a hot shower, ordered room service - the meal was terrific. The bed was fine, the room was large enough, - really a pleasant surprise. The buffet breakfast in the morning was not impressive. But a short walk down the street are plenty of restaurants. We are planning on staying there again. I think we paid $66 USD for one night.

Location of hotel is quite good for crossing over by taxi to Puxi or going to Lujiajui. Unfortunately, its ambience and accessibility is somewhat spoilt by ongoing Metro construction work on Pudong Avenue. Neighbourhood is a little dusty but not unduly noisy. Room offers good size and comfort, without any unnecessary features or over-intrusive service. Another plus is the convenience of dining at the 2 wonderful Chinese restaurants on either side of the Pudong Avenue entrance. One is a popular Sichuan restaurant; the other a newly opened "Fusion" place featuring interesting dishes like Foie Gras done Chinese-style and Prime Mutton sourced from Hainan.
