“Clean, Comfortable...Highly Recommended!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2008

We stayed at the Days Hotel, Shanghai in December of 2007. We wanted a decent location near a metro line, to allow for easy access throughout the metropolis. After looking at several hotels near the Railway Station, we decided this hotel was most favorable...and it didn't disappoint.

Front-desk staff was pleasant and the reception area very large, modern and clean. Our rate was 400RMB/night (approx. $70.00 U.S.). You can save a few dollars by booking on Expedia. Other reviewers have commented on the general vicinity not being up to snuff, but I felt safe walking around the hotel. I was never bothered by anyone, and those annoying art students/tea ceremony scammers are nowhere to be found in this area either. Bonus! There are a number of small shops, grocery stores, etc. on the surrounding streets, as well as all the Western regulars (McDonalds, KFC, etc.).

Rooms were large, immaculately clean and elegantly furnished. I found the beds to be quite comfortable compared to other hotels I stayed at in China and the bathrooms were especially nice after a long day of walking around Shanghai (beautiful tile work and a variety of good quality toiletries). There are a variety of TV channels, including HBO. Free internet access is provided. There is also a "chocolate lady" who will knock on your door around 6:00pm to hand out bite-size Dove bars to guests.

All in all, I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

  • Liked — Cleanliness. Best cleaning staff in all of Shanghai apparently.
  • Disliked — I have no complaints.

The days hotel is a very nice hotel its still very new ,so everywhere is still very clean.The only complaint I have is the beds they were like concrete, we did ask reception if thay had
softer matresses in any of the other rooms,the girl behind the desk gave us four more rooms to choose from we found one we thought might be a bit more comfotable but after sleeping on it we discovered it was'nt. The staff were great their english
was'nt to good but we had no problems, we could always make ourselves understood.The breakfast is not the best I've had but its certainly not the worst.
We never had any problems getting to where we needed to go either by taxi or metro which is very near by.

Stayed October 2007

When we first arrived at Days Hotel, I was rather worried that there were no other decent looking buildings around us. The surroundings were a bit run down, mostly small local shops catered to the locals. But I must say, our room turned out to be quite modern and was big enough for 4 of us (2 adults and 2 children). We only encountered one problem during our stay, and that was the toilet was blocked for the 1st night. We also found the air in the lobby to be unpleasant. I suggest anyone wanting to stay here to bear in mind that you will have to take a taxi to just about anywhere you want to go. Taxis are inexpensive. Reception employees do not speak good English but are extremely helpful.

  • Liked — The fact that it was inexpensive and still clean and modern
  • Disliked — The smell in the lobby
