Holiday Inn Shanghai Vista
Ranked #116 of 5,161 Hotels in Shanghai
Reviewed 10 September 2010

The location is actually very near to Shanghai Railway Station and city center is easily accessible by metro as well as taxi. Due to the famous name, it's easy to ask taxi driver to take you to the hotel. The level of comfort of room and service quality is just as expected from a global brand, reliable, no surprises. A little bit odd though that they put fishbowl in the room (I pitied the solo fish). I am not satisfied with the surrounding area as it is a bit dirty, especially when you walk to the metro station. Also, not all of the staffs can speak good English, hence sometimes I got confusing information. The hotel seems to be more for business travelers rather than leisure. Would suggest other leisure traveller to pick other hotels in downtown area.

The staff were great especially Sam the concierge and other members of his team

Had the oportunity to meet with the general manager Sharon whom was very nice and enjoyable to converse with

The location was just right as the hotel is located within a 5 minute walk from the line 7 metro which can wisk you to the sites within 20-30 minutes

Relatively easy to get to from Pudong Intl Airport (PVG) first by taking the Maglev (covers 30 klm in 8 minutes at 431 klm per hour) to the metro and from there via metro line 7 ..all in all about a 45 to 60 minute ride ... worh it considering Shanghai traffic

Breakfast with just great

Indoor pool on the top floor received and A mark from my 2 children

Well worth the value and a look at when booking for business or leisure

This is a great value choice. As many people have said, the main drawback of this hotel is the location: the hotel itself is away from the main areas but the Changshou Rd. subway station (Line 7) is a five minute walk away and you can get anywhere you want to go very easily. The Expo site is on this line and the Maglev station is also on the same line so access from the airport is easy too.

The rooms are very nice; there's a comfortable bed, a great shower and a good TV with a big selection of channels.

The staff were nice; especially the pool and restaurant staff. A nice lady on reception (sorry didn't get her name) gave us a couple of extra hours to check out so we could relax until it was time to leave for the airport. They were efficient and there were no troubles at all in our stay. The buffet breakfast is pretty good too.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Top marks to the management and staff of this hotel. We stayed for 4 nights and frankly I couldn't come up with anything to complain about. Staff are professional, friendly and enthusiatic. The hotel is away from the main tourist & shopping area ( Nanjing Rd East, the Bund and Pudong financial district) . However, the subway system there is quite eleborate. It is about 8-10 minutes walk to the Changshou Rd subway station, from there it connects to pretty well everywhere. Subway is very inexpensive, ticket machines are billingual (Chinese/Engliish) and so are signs and pa announcements. Taxis are everywhere and cheap. There are shops close by the hotel that cater mostly to locals. Try out the steam buns from the small resturant next to the hotel they are very good. Food and service in the hotel restaurant was very good, but as your might expect, cost many times more than resturants outside. Over all a very nice place.

We stayed at the executive level with lounge access. The room is clean and roomy. The hotel staff are so helpful with everything especially the concierge. Location is not a problem, taxi in china is so cheap. My daughter enjoyed the warm pool.
