This hotel is in a very good place to explore Shanghai as it is near the Peoples Square and the Nanking pedestrian shopping centre. The metro and buses stop at Peoples Square too. The hotel itself has very helpful staff who all speak good English. The room was the size of a typical budget hotel but also had an annexe with fridge, microwave, hot plates, toaster and dishwasher. It was furnished with good quality hardwood furniture with a rosewood floor. The bed was firm but comfortable and the place was clean. Plenty of washing products were provided, including toothbrushes and paste. The coffee,tea, bottled water and dishwasher powder were replenished daily. Shangkai is a noisy city as the cars hoot their horns constantly but we could on just hear it as we were on the 11th floor (of I think 18). Breakfast was a buffet and had slightly different items available on each day. There was plenty to cater for all tastes including cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, cold meats, hot items for European and Chinese clients.
A strange feature is that only one breakfast voucher is provided per room but another can be purchased on the day for the equivalent of about £6. In brief this hotel was in a good position, is clean and has helpful staff. The extra facilities can be helpful for preparing the odd snack.
The best way of getting to the hotel from the airport is probably by taxi which will cost less than £20. The metro is cheaper but the station is a bit of a distance from the airport. Co not end up as we did getting a hire car at the airport thinking it is a taxi. It will cost you around £50. The car firms will approach you as you arrive. If you have a choice of rooms the higher you are the quieter it will be. The lifts are quiet and speedy. We did not use any other facilities.
