Stayed one night before going to another city flying out of Pudong. I have transportation so i did not reserve the airport shuttle. The area is pretty safe if you like to go out to Chinese restaurants a block away, left and right of the hotel. There are also McDonald, Burger King and pizza place. Room is clean WiFi was...

The hotel is very nice: rooms are large and luxury. I could not try breakfast as we left very early in the morning, but we did try the Chinese restaurant. Excellent Chinese meal with very reasonable price in spite the very elegant setting! Staff very helpful and English speaking. Price very reasonable for shangai standards.

I used this hotel for an overnight between flights. It takes about 20 to 25 minutes from the airport. That worse thing is the taxi drivers don't know where it is. Once we arrived it was a nice clean hotel with modern amenities . They do have a hotel shuttle but it was unclear where they pickup and if you...

I booked this place since my flight from Hongkong arrived around midnight. It's actually not that close from Pudong airport, and it's quite a remote location away from traffic and other activities. Anyway, the rooms are clean, big and comfortable. Staff was courteous.

I stayed here because my flight was arriving late and I didn't want to travel too far. I was headed to Disney and wanted to be close to there for the morning. This hotel worked fine, though it's not surrounded by much. It looks like it was a nice 5 star hotel in it's day but is showing its age...

Some problems faced - 1) lack of vegan food choices in menu / restaurants 2) lack of english speaking personnel 3) location was in a residential area having no other options like food court ,malls nearby 4) since i curtailed my visit from...

I stayed here on a 24 hour layover through Shanghai and it was everything I needed to power up for my second flight. If you are a non-smoker ask for the 8th or 11th floor as those are non-smoking. My favorite thing was the bathtub, I took two baths in the time I was there. The AC worked well and...

The hotel is somewhat of a time warp back to 1980's Las Vegas. Neon lights, turn around driveway and water features. Alas, no casino inside. The rooms are surprisingly above average. My biggest complaint was room "service". After a very long road trip and a harrowing subway ride I was exhausted when I arrived. When I called room service for...

I stayed here for an early flight home. The reception is beautiful and the check in was fast and very friendly. Remember to book your shuttle bus to the airport when you check in and also If you need a shuttle bus from the airport to make a reservation for the shuttle bus 1 day before you arrive. The room...
