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.
