Rooms are spacious enough for two, though not luxuriously so. You can enjoy basic and clean hospitality and stay. It is close to the Shanghai Railway Station, so that will help in getting taxis easily. The toilets are clean, but sadly there are no restaurants - apart from the buffet breakfast that is served, you have to go out for...

Stayed there one night after long trip. The lobby was not very tidy to be honest, at least not the standard Holiday Inn Express I would expect. It looks like more than a storage room and not too welcoming at all. The staff were quite helpful, though. The breakfast was quite interesting since this is my very first time in...

I stayed in this hotel for 6 weeks for business. I was on Floor 6 and had a good view, but the higher you are, the better of course. I had a work colleague who was on Floor 4 and his view was rubbish as there was a roof of sorts that blocked his view. The maid service was excellent...

I have never stayed at such a cigarette smoke filled motel,such as this ,in my life. We opened the apartment door and were nearly knocked over by the wafting stench of cig smoke.This came as a mortifying betrayal of disapointment ,as we had specified strongly, of a room for NON -SMOKING! It truly would not have been accepted had it...

Holiday Inn Express Shanghai The check in was very fast and easy. I think this hotel chain might have me as a frequent visitor because they didn't even want a room deposit.

Dear guest, thank you for your stay in our hotel and your exciting comments. As a mid-end hotel, it offers less service and more freedom compared with luxury brand hotels. It really saves money.
