“Terrible hotel who lost my train ticket”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

I stayed here for one night, due to late arrival into Shanghai and early departure via railway to Beijing the next morning. When I arrive, the staff seemed confused at my booking, but we finally sorted that. They did not speak any english, and I had my train ticket booked for Beijing sent there by China TripAdvisor. I tried to explain to them that I had a ticket, but they could not understand. I used google translate, and they just did not get it. I couldn't ring China TripAdvisor as it was late at night, so ended up having to buy another ticket at the train station ($137 US down the drain). The room was tiny, with a rock hard bed. The shower/bathroom was tiny with very little water pressure. I would avoid this hotel at all costs.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

We were looking for some good hotel near the airport and hongqiao station and found this one. It was better than I expected with clean rooms and staff very cooperating. A few points to note though:

- If you are coming via train to Hongqiao station, always use South-Exit and get a taxi from there.

- Taxi does not take more than 20RMB but if you are relatively new to Shanghai, driver can cheat you and charge extra by wandering around the same area to increase the value on meter. The board is visible from far away, so look for it.

- Shanghai Nan (South) railway station is about 30kms away from this place. Hotel reception can get to private taxi which is without meter, so you can fix the rent before going there. We paid 60RMB.

Chose this place because I was flying into Hongqiao late at night and expecting to leave early the next morning so I figured I would just grab the cheapest place in Hongqiao. I wasn't expecting anything since it was only 98 kuai a night but the whole place looked fairly new and clean, the Internet was very fast and bathrooms were completely western.

Only downsides were the language skills of the staff but I was expecting that, just make a reservation and give 'em your passport. The TV was the smallest I think I'd ever seen but who cares. There was a bit of construction going on outside late at night which was kind of annoying but it didn't wake me once I fell asleep. It's very close to a highway so if you don't like the sound of traffic wizzing by I'd look elsewhere.

Overall, if you want a good, cheap place near the old airport you won't find anything better than this, highly recommended.
