The only reason I stayed here was because of the Typhoon that knocked out all the flights for 12 to 18 hours on August 8th 2012. The storm had canceled all flights and instead of sleeping at the airport and because of the Ramada was already full I found this on a iPhone ap for about $125 a night. They gave me a 5 floor room which was okay but not great by any means. But since most other international travelers spent 2 hours to get back to the city I was glad to get this hotel and it only took us about 20mins to get to the Cube. Rooms are a little out dated and there was only CNN to watch. The bar was ok but not great and the food was way too salty.

This was the closest hotel I could find that was not already booked. It’s about 10kms and 50~60 RMB taxi ride from the airport. So if you cannot get out of PVG and cannot get the Ramada this is an option, but not recommend for more than one night.

Room Tip: do not get a 5th floor room - Very noisy

Nice hotel with helpful (sufficiently english speaking) staff, located around 20min from Pudong Airport. Free hotel shuttles leave each hr, but need to be booked then night before.
There are hotels located closer to the airport, but you will still need a shuttle or taxi anyway...

Hotel is located next to the subway for direct access to the city centre (takes about 1hr). Note: Trains only return halfway back to Chuansha after 9pm - so will need to take a short taxi ride if returning after that...
There are few things to see on a nice Sunday morning in the local area, including a park, markets and section of the old city wall all within walking distance.

Wow, initial lobby impression and room, for the price paid is exceptional.

As others have reported, this is now a 'Qube' hotel, not a Howard Johnson.

I didn't want to wait on the hourly airport shuttle, so jumped in a cab at the airport. I showed the driver my printed confirmation, with address (In Chinese & English), and he set off. After 5 minutes he starts babbling in Chinese and obviously has no idea where he's going ...... arghhhhh. I ended up guiding him in with my iPhone GPS, while taking the opportunity to curse at him (Made me feel better).

I booked some months ago, via Howard Johnson website, and got a rate including breakfast of 600 CYN = approx. $94. The room was easily of a $200+ USA Hilton/Hyatt quality.

Surrounded by lots of shops & restaurants, catering more for locals than international visitors.

A BIG NEGATIVE ..... Wireless network was not available, meaning it wasn't even visible ! and the wired connection in the room was slow. In fact so slow, I wish I'd brought my dial up modem from the '70's ! But, it did its job eventually !

This is definitely a location that works for 1 or 2 nights when flying in or out, but not if you're visiting or doing business in central Shanghai.

Breakfast was fine, plenty of choice, and typical Asian buffet fare.

I'd probably choose the Radisson Blu in Pudong (5 minutes further by Taxi) over this location, due to the internet service and better facilities surrounding the hotel that cater more for international visitors. But, you'll pay at least $150 per night.

This hotel, which actually no longer is a Howard Johnson (they now call themselves "the Cube"!) is situated in a residential part of the Pu-dong aria of Shanghai. There is a busy metro station only a few minutes walk away with a direct connection to the city center (the television tower) and both the airports. The hotel provide a free airport (Pu-dong airport) shuttle service which was much faster and more convenient than the metro. There is also a newly built, local shopping aria with numerous restaurants and coffee shops adjacent to the hotel. The rooms are really spacious and the bath room a "must see". The breakfast was also good and included in the price for my part. NB! The rack rate is three times higher as the price I actually paid through "dhr.com"! I suspect Howard Johnsen at selling of rooms before the actual transaction to "the Cube", however this is just a thought I have.
