Yep...it's cheap. It's in the middle of nowhere with next to no decent eating places or bars within walking distance. The hotel itself offers next to no services (that I could see). The staff's grasp of English was only marginally better than my Chinese. We went to the hotel restaurant for lunch...it was supposed to be open from 12-2pm...and it was closed. No explanation. Hotel offers no room service. The rooms don't even have fridges for if you want to buy stuff in (and with no restaurant or room service you may want to).

Some cheapskate company manager put us in there for a conference....he nearly had a revolution on his hands. Stay somewhere else. Anywhere else. Being cheap isn't everything.

My wife, toddler and I stayed here for two nights in (Oct 2nd and 3rd, 2010) and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was okay and in good order. The room was clean and there was no smoke smell. It was quiet; we stayed in room 705 by the elevator. The carpet was really dirty around the edges of the room.

Staff was friendly and spoke enough English; we requested an extra blanket and towel but had to remind them multiple times before we picked it up from the lobby.

The beds were hard for Western standards and also compared to the Holiday Inn Express we stayed in while in Hangzhou. There were two styles of pillows for those that like either soft or hard which was nice, however neither one was appropriately labeled.

No alarm clock but there was a large flat screen TV (I’m guessing but maybe a 32 incher). There were CNN, BBC and HBO along with some other English channels. There is a safe and free internet (not wireless).

Bathrooms were nice but without a bathtub. Water pressure was fine with lots of hot water. They offer LUX shower gel and shampoo in a dispenser in the shower. Our shower drain did not work properly and the water accumulated as we showered, my wife had to repeatedly turn off the shower to prevent water from leaking outside.

There were two free bottles of water in the bathroom. No mini bar or fridge – but that’s probably something to do with the “express” concept. They still provide some tea bags, instant coffee, cups and a water boiler.

There were two free public computers with internet in the lobby.

There was a laundry facility on the second floor where you could do your own laundry but we did not use it.

The breakfast in the morning offered much for those that can stomach Chinese breakfasts. For those that enjoy Western style breakfast, there were pancakes and a choice of white or whole wheat bread and some yogurt if you requested it. Also there were Coco Puffs and Corn Flakes along with OJ and apple juice.

Papa Johns which is a sit down pizza joint was down the street to the left and to the right and around the corner to the right again was a KFC and Carrefour Supermarket.

All in all it was an okay experience at this hotel.

We stayed here for a total of 4 nights. It is very good value for money. Check in/out staff is friendly and efficient, rooms are clean and spacious. Free internet.
Breakfast is good, good choice of chinese and western food. Tables were cleared quickly and food was filled up regularly.
It is a bit far out from the center of Shanghai but there's a subway station less than 10 minutes from the hotel. There's also a supermarket and fast food restaurants around the corner. The airport is a 30/40 minute taxi drive away.
Would stay there again.

Very pleasant experience at this Holiday Inn Express on the other side of the world. We were traveling to the Expo with 4 teenagers and found this to be very comfortable (except for the beds--wow they were hard!!) It is located in a newer part of Shanghai with a grocery/general goods store around the corner (very interesting to walk around) and a quick shop down the other way. We were only about three blocks from the subway which we took everywhere we needed to go (even the airport) The breakfast selections were interesting. We had fried rice, noodles, steamed veggies and a salad bar. They threw in some toast and two cereals for the non -Asians who didn't enjoy the rice and veggies as my daughter and I did. The kitchen staff was exceptional and very attentive. Several big tour groups were staying and they did a great job keeping up. The staff English was limited but we had our reservation sheets and checked in with no problems. One of our three rooms was smokey and we asked it to be changed which was done promptly and politely. A bit far from the expo but new, clean, and comfy and well staffed. Computer connection was excellent and they had easily accessed public computers also.
