So we have to go by walking to the hotel reception...

Check in was fine and staff were helpful and pleasant enough. Their English was a bit limited, but better than expected and much better than our Chinese. No real problems there. The room was disappointing. We were expecting a new room as the hotel was not very old. The room was a good size and probably if anything bigger than...

This hotel prides itself on a location that is close to Shanghai's main station...but good luck finding it. I booked this hotel mainly because of the price and proximity to Shanghai station as I had an overnight train. The hotel cannot be accessed by taxis as they are not permitted on the road, you have to walk a couple of...

When trying to find a place in Shanghai during the opening day for the olympics, you would think that since Shanghai is far from Beijing, you would have no problems... that day, almost all the hotels were booked, so I just looked up and found this holiday inn express. I was very very surprised. The hotel room was spotless, new,...

I found this hotel on the net and it seemed to be too good to be true, for only 300RMB per room per night including breakfast in a brand new international hotel in central Shanghai - unheard of. The hotel is fairly new and looks good from the outside, reception is small for such a big hotel - but the...
