I stayed in Howard Johnson Huaihai for three nights in my last business trip. The location is close to subway station (Xie Xi Nang Road) and there are lots of nice restaurants nearby (along Dong Hu Road). The hotel staff at the front desk, although a bit slow, are helpful in check-in, check-out, calling taxi, etc. The standard room (named Deluxe Room) is reasonably sized and clean, but signs of age can still be easily recognized. The bathroom fits in a basin, a water closet, a tub and a shower cubicle. Water pressure and temperature are good. The beddings and toiletries satisfied basic expectation. The thermostat is a bit handicapped for me as there is no control on fan speed. And in fact, the temperature can never be dropping to below 25.5 C although I set it as 20. This made the room stuffy and super warm. There is free wifi in room but seems that the password given did not work. I did not bother as I have my own hot spot already. The breakfast buffet is served on L2 and the selection is limited. As for quality, so so. I had used the gym on L3 for two mornings, and there equipped some tread machines and a few dumb bells for weight training. It was good to me who just wants some cardio.
I would recommend this hotel for business trip. If for vacation, it depends whether one would like to spend longer in the hotel. If so, this may not be a good choice due to limited amenities.
