“Hotel Review - Holiday Inn Express Putuo Shanghai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2009

Nice Hotel at an affordable rate in Shanghai. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is basic. The rooms were noisy from all the new construction especially early in morning. Short walking distance to many restaurants and Carrefour. The only drawback is access to taxis, this is my second time in 2 years staying at this hotel and many taxis do not know where it is located. As well taxis do not hang around this hotel, so tell the hotel if you need a taxi in advance.

Thanks
Martin

Hotel is 8kms from central area and taxi drivers find it diificult to locate.Failed to call a taxi to the hotel but managed with difficulty to return.Taxis are very cheap however.
Construction work taking place on both sides of hotel.Access to main road is rough and takes 10 mins.
Rooms are spacious,double bed clean and very comfortable.Electricity can go off from time to time.
Some western style food available in cafeteria.Difficult to find restaurants within walking distance although there was a good one at the China Greeen hotel [about 20mins] also Starbucks in the same vicinity.

i have stayed at this hotel for 5 nights, i should say that the hotel looks quite new specially the interior of building is quite in a new shape.

the rooms are in a good size all having a writing desk and a small sofa. you receive comlimentary tea and coffee plus two bottles of water every day. also the bathroom is in a good state.

talking about the breakfast, we had this included in the room rate but i should say it wasn't the best breakfast, you had less choice but both chinese and western.

just like most of the hotels in china the staff had a real language difficulty.

the main down-point on this hotel is the location, eventhough it's quite close to the metro on line 3 (5 minutes walk) but you have to go through a poor area and maybe for a tourist it doesn't look great. also the hotel is located at the end of a narrow road which most of the taxis think it's dead end.

all in all i liked this hotel. specially the price was right for the quality.

This property is not located in Shanghai city. It is a 25 minute car ride from the city during non-peak hours (11pm). During peak hours, expect a longer drive.

If you are a tourist to Shanghai, I do not suggest you stay here as the distance is unbearable. Hotels in Shanghai city are not as expensive as HKG, so i suggest you give this hotel a miss. You will not regret it as the distance can be rather daunting. Traveling after a long flight, you do not want to go through bad traffic throughout your stay.

Breakfast is very miserable. Rooms are clean, but very tiny.

This property is a solid 3.5* hotel, located in the suburb.

Rooms: very new, clean rooms, sheets changed daily, triple sheets, giant shower box, bright, and curtains that overlap so you can sleep in properly. Bottled water provided daily.

Excellent free buffet breakfast: fruit, veggie, toasts, Chinese congee, chow fan noodle are available as well as three main courses to choose from (beef noodle soup, fried rice, and western style - eggs, hash brown, and bacon).

Free internet: three computer stations are available in the lobby as well as free wifi.

Location: It's a bit out of the way. Most cab drivers cannot find it without the hotel name card. The check in agent will give you a card when you check in and use this to show the cab driver.

Cab is about 30RMB to Nanjing Road and 60RMB to JinMao in Pudong side. Ride to Maglev station is about 70RMB.

I'll stay here again if the price is right.
