Disappointed in Holiday Inn Express Putuo. The room appeared clean but was really dusty - I was sneazing the entire stay. The dustiness could be easily fixed with a more thorough job of vacuuming and changing the sheets. The room was also smoky even though its supposed to be a non-smoking hotel. I could smell the smoke in the room from the smoke in the hallway. Also the bathroom had a weird sewage smell because the toilet/sink/shower water smelled like sewage water. The breakfast was also lacking and cold. I like chinese breakfasts but the options here with things like ketchup rice was not appetizing. One morning I tried to drink the tea but the water smelled like sewage. Not sure if it is a Shanghai water issue or just the Holiday Inn Express Putuo. Also if you use their business center, be careful of the mosquitos. I've not gotten bit anywhere else in Shanghai except in their business center. 4 times!
What was nice was that it was 5 minutes from the subway because otherwise there is really nothing to do nearby. The front staff was overall pretty helpful and spoke a decent amount of English to help us get around.
