“Very good value, clean, comfortable”
Reviewed 13 November 2008

This is a new hotel with the latest Ibis rooms to the standard french design. Small modular bathroom with good big shower. Queen size bed, faux timber flooring, desk against window and small couch and wardrobe. (See photo on hotel website). Free broadband internet with ethernet cable in room. Some international TV stations, inc HBO, Bloomberg and French TV, but curiously not BBC or CNN. The Ibis is located some distance out in Pudong, not far from the Maglev station to Pudong airport. Metro station about 1.5km away (take a taxi), but the outdoor mall- Thumb Plaza is opposite. It has a Carrefour hypermarket and big range of restaurants, bars and cafes as well as Bank of China. Good asian breakfast with limited western choice, but you can get toast, croissants, fruit and coffee for 20RMB. A pleasant bar as well. Good management and friendly desk staff. If price is a consideration and you want a comfortable, very clean international standard hotel with free internet and international TV, then this is the hotel for you in Shanghai.

1. Getting there: Good thing we printed out the name and address of the hotel in Chinese because Shanghai is enormous and the taxi driver would never be able to find this place without the address. Even with the address a few taxi drivers drove right past. We had to point out the "ibis" sign.
But the hotel is like, off the main road, down a driveway. So it's not easy to find.

2. Checking in: HAHA they don't speak English. The whole time we were there, only one manager spoke and understood English well enough for us to have a coherant conversation. That said, between hubby and I, we do speak a little halting Mandarin and I could definitely say that it was still better than the staff's English.
So the check-in was a bit slow. And they gave us a smoking room though we did request non-smoking when we made our reservation. Their response was that the hotel is new so the cigarette smell wouldn't be noticeable. WRONG!! But because it was so hard to communicate, we just bared with it. But NEVER AGAIN.
The bellboy showed us to our room. And *shock horro* it was occupied. So he left us in the corridor to find a new room.

3. Amenities and facilities: Bathroom amenities were just the toothbrush, unknown brand toothpaste, and some soap and shampoo. Bring or buy your own stuff. Their stuff is probably like the cheapest you can find anywhere.
They have free internet downstairs BUT haha I couldn't work out how to work the computer. The typing all came out as Chinese writing!!!
Oh yeah, the free broadband in the room for your computer was good. I think that's why I chose this hotel, coz of the free internet. Others were charging ridiculous amounts for broadband.

4. Restaurant: The breakfast was RMB20 per person which is super cheap but expect to get what you pay for. Being very unadventurous as far as food goes, I didn't try most of the things there and there really wasn't very much there for you to choose from either. Porridge, fruit, salad, some dumplings (that didn't taste nice) and oily, salty fried noodles. Juice. I only ate there once. It was enough..

5. Location. Ok location. There's a big shopping centre across the road. Carrefour. Many restaurants, though I would say the restaurants are kind of expensive there.
But to get to the attractions and into town, it was a bit of a hassle. No train within walking distance, we'd take a taxi to the nearest train station. The taxi was about RMB20. Not too expensive. Just a hassle.
Taxi to town was about RMB40. Taxi back from town was RMB65. More expensive coz the taxi would have to make a huge round. Take the train to the science centre stop and take a taxi from the taxi stand there.

6. The room: Small, with lots of corners that you can stub your toes on. Didn't like the smoking room smell. But I suppose that's subjective, right? Tiny little bathroom cubicle, which I assume is standard with Ibis hotels. The shower leaked a lot of water into the bathroom and so the bathroom floor was freezing cold all night.

Overall ok for the price. I paid RMB245 per night. Very cheap for a room in Shanghai. But next time I think I'll stay at Novotel Atlantis or Sofitel Hyland. I ate at both hotels and prefered the locations. Didn't like having to take taxi everywhere.
