“Close to airport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

I choose this hotel because it one of the closest to Shanghai Pudong Airport. I had an early morning flight and the free shuttle bus to the airport was ideal.

It is located on the outskirts of a small village near the airport. Looking up and down the road outside, there is not much to be seen. However, there are some shops and restaurants a block or two down the road to the left.

While it is easy to get to the airport, this hotel is not well suited for travel into the city. It was my plan to spend some time in Shanghai in the afternoon/evening the day before my flight out. In the street outside the hotel, there aren't any cars, let alone taxis. We ended up with an illeagal private taxi to the nearest subway station on line 2 at a cost of 20 RMB. Then a long subway ride into town. Coming back we took the same route. The subway station is in the middle of some fields and not safe feeling late at night. Just along the road a little, several private cars were waiting operating as taxis. We negociated the same fair as before to return to the hotel.

The hotel itself is clean an modern. Everything you would expect from a business hotel. Breakfast in the morning was the typical Chinese buffet with a few western hints such as bacon rashers.

The hotel transfer runs regularly every 30 minutes and takes just 10 minutes to get to the airport along the express way. It stops at T1 first then goes on to T2. If you tell the driver your flight number, he will know which one to drop you at. There was also a list of common flight number on the bus door should you wish to check.

I would use this hotel again if I had a early morning flight next time I am in Shanghai. However, if you don't need to be so close to the airport, you would be better choosing somewhere more central.

If you are in need of a decent hotel at a good price close to the Pudong airport for just a night, this hotel fits the bill. Don't expect to get shuttle service FROM the airport to the hotel but they are very good with set shuttle times from the hotel to the airport.

We had an early flight the next morning, so we traveled on the metro from downtown Shanghai the afternoon before to the airport to catch the hotel shuttle. We gave up finding the shuttle. We were told it doesn't run all the time so we just took a taxi. Be sure to get someone to write down the address AND name of the hotel in Chinese at the airport. We only had the address in Chinese and the taxi driver went the wrong way on Chenyang Road. He would have probably recognized the hotel name immediately judging by his reaction when we finally arrived at the hotel. The taxi ride ending up costing about $9 US which is overpriced for this distance. The quality of the hotel for the price was so good, we certainly couldn't complain.

The breakfast was totally Chinese, not much for the western palate. Our room was quiet, clean and comfortable. All that I could ask for in an airport hotel.

The rooms are big and clean althought very noisy (i could hear the street life quite easily) and there were lots of mosquitos in the bathroom.
Wifi in the lobby was not working. There were sheets on the floor in the corridor(?). Breakfast is ok provided you eat chinese food in the morning (very few continental food).
Be careful you are not locales nearby te airport but 10km away (15 min with the shuttle)
I could easily take the shuttle at night and in the morning (every 30 min) but during the day turn over is one shuttle/hour.
I arrived at 22h30 and the doorman wanted to sell me a foot massage when he brought my Luggage into my room...
I stayed only one night and it was enough!

Stayed at hotel for a few hours only as I had a long layover and wanted a room close to the airport. Bathroom was clean, bed was comfy and room was ok. Did not eat at hotel. Shuttle to airport was on time and easy to use. Rates very good. Many pilots and stewardesses were staying there as well. Front desk spoke English and were very accommodating.
Good hotel for quick sleep and a shower.

On a recent overnight stay near the Shanghai Pudong airport, I was a bit concerned by some users' negative reviews of this location.

I found the room to be comfortable and clean, the grounds were nice, the staff was efficient, and the shuttle was easy to use. Enough said...all you need in an airport hotel- and better than most international airport experiences I've had. I'll plan on staying here on my flight out of China, for sure.

We spent here just a few hours, due to our flight of China Southern was delayed.
The hotel is managed by the airline.
The rooms are OK, don't expect a 5 star room type, but is comfortable enough.
They have working cable TV with a few English speaking channels.
The location is only useful if you have a flight in a few hours, since is far from everything except Pudong Airport.
Around the area, walking about 300 meters to the left will bring you to a street with many local restaurants.
The lack of English is real, but anyone who travels around China knows that unless you go to international hotel chains, language can be an issue.

If you are not coming here because of a flight delayed, plan in advance and keep a picture on your phone or print a paper with the address and name in CHINESE CHARACTERS. Dont expect a bus/taxi driver to understand English, much less to know the name of a hotel in English (the names tend to change quite a lot from Chinese to English).

To resume: spent just the minimum time, and only if you need to go to/from Pudong Airport, and only need a shower and a bed.
