Always a balance between price and location the holiday inn meets that. No more than 15-20 minutes from Nanjing Rd, the Bazaar or the Bund (25 ¥ in good traffic) HI has basic but well appointed rooms with a neat bathroom setup. King bed, desk, occassional table and sofa bed, what more do you need? Double glazing reduces traffic noise...

Stayed here for one night before taking the train to home. Very convenient to get to the Shanghai railway station, the rest of the stay ok but not great.

The room was fine and the hotel is near all the main transport hubs, but, they didn't speak any English, at least during our stay. Luckily my wife is Chinese so that wasn't a problem. The western breakfast is virtually non existent although the Chinese breakfast is huge. The beds were comfortable and the rooms clean and tidy and a...

Dear guest, thank you for your stay in Holiday Inn Express Zhabei Shanghai and your exciting comments. From your low mark, we know you were not very satisfied with your last stay. As a mid-end hotel, it offers less service and more freedom compared with luxury brand hotels. It really saves money. From check in to departure, Holiday Inn Express...

This hotel’s good location, north of Shanghai Main Station, has attracted me back for, I think, the fourth time; finding it at first is difficult: get out of the Metro by exit 4 and follow the buildings to Zhongxing Road, going past a motley collections of fast-food restaurants and shops and jostling with the frequently heavily-laden railway passengers and street...

While it may be a massive structure, the hotel is very basic. The hotel lobby is very plain. The front desk staff is very variable although I can say that only one person was truly worthy to be called "helpful". The lobby also smells of food, of the oil used in the food in the adjoining breakfast area. Well, actually...

Holiday Inn Express Shanghai Railway Zhabei is probably a good choice for Shanghai Railway passengers as it is situated nearby the north exit of the station. Plus, several subway lines are also located within the railway station, which makes city tourists can have an easy access to major sightseeing spots. However, some people may think the hotel location is quite...
