“Spacious room with low cost yet far from city centre”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We booked two rooms for one night only as we would fly to the other place the next day. The rooms are huge with big bed enough for adult and children. Its furniture looks pretty new.

Free airport shuttle bus is provided for sending guests from the airport to the hotel. It is nice that the staff in the airport counter brought us to the bus station.

The breakfast there is not very attractive. Orange juice is just like made from orange powder with water. Both Chinese and Western food are not the usual dishes we would expect.

It has a friendly reminder in Chinese only in the bathroom. It reminds people to place the mat on the floor in taking showers for safety.

It is far from city centre. However, it is a nice choice if you just need to stop over for a short while and look for cheaper hotel.

Stayed June 2013, travelled with family

+ everything was great, free transport from/to airport, very good food next to the hotel
- poor english of the staff, you have to take a taxi to get to the nearest metro station (5km - 23RMB), but to get back to the hotel you won't find taxi - only local drivers

Location is good since there are several eating place around its block, and foot massage parlors are everywhere.
Only bad side is their rooms smells cigar smoke.
Breakfast is bad, very limited Chinese food.
Ideal for transient stay only.

I reserved a room at this hotel through ctrip.
A small single room for only 168RMB.
I arrived at Pudong airport, and only by calling ctrip several times did I learn that the
shuttle bus would meet me at Terminal 1, first floor, exit 9.
The staff at the hotel speaks very little English, but the guy that arranges the shuttle bus does speak English.
Small and clean room. Friendly staff. Good for one or two nights.
Free bus from Pudong airport, but you must pay 15RMB to return to Pudong airport.

I stayed at this hotel for one night, as I had an early morning flight to Xi'an the next day. I could only recommend this hotel for this purpose only. The room was clean and very basic - bed, bathroom, TV. No safe, no fridge. The restaurant attached to the hotel was, annoyingly, not operating the night that I stayed, so I went for a stroll to find something to eat. There is nothing at all interesting around this hotel - just a heap of seedy massage joints and a couple of restaurants with no English or picture menus. All well and good if you speak Chinese, but I ended up resorting to food from a convenience store. The hotel has an inexpensive shuttle to the airport, which was very useful.

This hotel served its purpose, but to be honest, if I were to book a room near Pudong Airport again I would spend a bit more money and stay somewhere a bit nicer.

Make sure that you are totally sure from where to get the shuttle to the hotel when you land in Pudong airport. They did not pick up from normal hotel bus point, but asked us to come to "long distance bus" point crossing all the way from Terminal 2 and then Terminal 1. I would have never found the bus if not helped by a chinese traveller. But otherwise, not much to complain. Hotel is near - like 15 mins - internet was very slow but it worked without problem. Breakfast could have been better. Staff is good, though beware that they do not have currency exchange at reception, so can get stuck of you have only dollars. Sadly happened with me. Night staff did not speak english. Got the room for 240 RMB, which is more than value for money. Its actually awesome for place like shanghai.

This hotel is good if you catch a flight next morning or reach airport very late to go to main city. No reason to stay for more than 1 night. Sleep will be comfy though.

If you're looking for an inexpensive hotel for a one-nighter near Pudong airport, look no further!

Clean, comfortable, and inexpensive hourly shuttle to the airport. Free buffet breakfast and wired internet access (free) in room.

Things that might turn you off initially... it is hot in summer and the public areas of the hotel (except the lobby and restaurant) are not air conditioned. Your room will be hot when you walk in since they do not put on the a/c until you go into the room. Some of the lobby furniture is a bit worn.

Once you get past that, you'll find the place to be comfortable and friendly. There are enough things with a few (long) blocks so you'll have all the necessities - banks, hair salons, restaurants, pharmacies, etc.

It's not a tourist destination. It is far from everything except the airport.

I would stay again for the price.
