No real positives to talk about unfortunately even from the airport where their "representative" translated on her phone and asked me to stay at another place for the same price. After saying no, I got into the shuttle, which is a raggedy van and it drove me to the hotel, which was about 10 minutes away and located in an... More

We booked this hotel merely base on the review on Tripadvisor and our initial plan was to take a metro to the nearest station to this hotel before heading to Pudong airport in the early next morning. However, in the last minute only we realized that there is actually no metro station near to this hotel. So, my advice is... More

We had been in Shanghai for several days and had a flight out of Pudong Airport at 1:20 am. Since we had to check out of our downtown hotel, we decided to book a cheap room here for that evening, so we could rest before going to the airport at midnight. We went to the airport desk to request a... More

I was stuck in the Pudong Airport, having failed to get on standby. It was ten p.m. and I needed a place for the night. Hawkers were approaching me with overpriced rooms well beyond my budget.I got on line and found some more reasonably priced rooms (still beyond my budget) tried to find a room. But beyond the one I... More

I wasn't impressed with the hotel, staff, state of the room or security. I had 'business cards' of certain 'ladies' pushed under my bedroom door. There were precious few facilities in the area I would have considered using. My advice, try another airport hotel. there are better ones out there. I will certainly be staying somewhere else in the future.

The only thing this place has going for it is it's comfortable beds, which made up for a lot of the bad stuff. The staff is rude & unhelpful, the wifi is terrible- probably the worst we've had(and I'm saying this after spending 4 months throughout SE Asia), the airport transfer is a joke- it only runs on the hour...

This hotel is really handy for flying through the Pudong airport, but I wouldn't want to stay longer than a night or two. There's not much around but the hotel has a shuttle to T1 and T2 pretty regularly. The rooms were clean and not too expensive.

I booked in here a couple of days before flying through Shanghai Pudong and as it was the cheapest hotel within striking distance of the airport I wasn't expecting much. The hotel maintains a desk at Terminal 1 and I was greeted warmly there and told when the next shuttle bus was, which took me on the short ride to... More

Decent, reasonably priced accommodation 20 minutes from Pudong airport (rmb15 for shuttle, arrange with reception in advance). Shops and simple restaurants at a small shopping centre within walking distance (turn right and right again at the main road). The location is pretty quiet for Shanghai. Everything was clean and in order and service was up to usual Shanghai standards. I... More
