I ended up here because I was presenting at a conference in the very near by Shanghai University of Finance and Economics. The hotel is also very convenient to a few other universities in the area and to the offices of some IT companies. But it is hardly a first choice if the objective to a Shanghai visit is the usual tourist attractions. They can be reached via the train system which is 5-10 minutes away. From the airport the easiest and most sensible transport is by taxi which will run you about 165 Rmb. It seems to take about 45 minutes without running into any serious traffic. Most of that distance is covered on multi-lane highway. I stayed in one of the clubrooms which are located on the 16th-19th floors. These are large rooms with an ample bathroom containing separate shower and bath. Two bottles of water are provided daily for free and more will be supplied if necessary. Teabags and instant coffee are also to be had. My room was nonsmoking, fresh and clean. I am not one to go hunting for dirt. Beds are big and comfortable. Service is well meaning but English language capability is spotty at best. A series of cafes and acceptable restaurants are about a 15-20 minute walk away or a quick 14 RMB taxi ride of less than five minutes. The hotel has several restaurants and there is nothing to complain about regarding the foot. A breakfast buffet was largely Chinese in style, though not completely, and was quite satisfactory. (Don't know the cost since my food and accommodation was picked up by the University.) So choose the hotel if you have dealings in the area. Otherwise as a tourist it would probably make equal sense to stay at an airport hotel and come directly into the city by the new maglev train. In other words it would make no sense whatsoever.

Room Tip: The Clubrooms provide quiet, a view and are very comfortable.

I guess this is a 3-star hotel. I rate it well below any well-run Holiday Inn Express. There were several things that left me unsatisfied with this hotel. First, we reserved a non-smoking room but got a smoking room ... and all the hallways on the floors I was on smelled like smoke. When we complained, they moved us ... to another smoking room. Both rooms were generally musty and smelly. Second, the AC didn't seem to work the first night. When my wife (who is Chinese) complained, it turned out that management sets the limits of the AC remotely ... that the wall controller will only take the temperature down as much as they allow! On the plus side, they adjusted it so our AC worked properly. On the downside, I am not sure if correcting this issue would be very straightforward if someone who wasn't Chinese tried to navigate it. I don't see the point in even having wall controls if mins and maxes are set elsewhere. There were a lot of other lesser issues. The breakfast buffet is rather limited, the shower heads in two rooms were pathetic, the water temperature is either hot or cold with a maddenly narrow setting to get it just right, the print on the shampoo and shower gel is so tiny, I couldn't read it, etc, etc. Don't get me wrong. This isn't the worst hotel I have stayed in. I just want to paint a realistic picture of what to expect.

Room Tip: Don't count on getting a non-smoking room. I doubt they exist.

I was staying here during a recent conference. The only downside at this place is that the bathroom has a big glass window which separates the room and that could be a problem if you are sharing. But you can pull a curtain for privacy!! Food is a challenge in general for vegetarians in China, but there is a supermarket across the street where you can buy fruits, cereal and milk. Wifi is patchy, but if you carry a LAN cable life will be super easy. Would choose to stay here again if an opportunity comes along.

This hotel is very close to SHUFE and Fudan Universities. And probably that is how it gets most of its traffic. Nonetheless, it is actually easy to get in and out of central Shanghai from here and the hotel itself is as good as the larger, brand name hotels near the Bund.

The rooms are good - some of the best I have stayed in from the point of the view of a business traveller - good desk, wireless OK (esp. relative to usual China issues), nice view, good bed, etc.

The restaurants are not great, but that, again, is standard for China. For breakfast, you are better off walking toward the subway on Rende Rd and getting pork buns from street venders at the corner of Yixian Rd.

The subway is also the easiest way to get to the center during rush hours. It is about a 30 min ride, and 10 mins walk from hotel to station. In off hours, UBER is 15 mins. Depending on what China does with UBER, this may continue to be the best way to return to the hotel at night. Certainly as at mid 2015, this made the hotel an easy launching point to do everything in Shanghai.

So, as long as UBER is fully functional in China, this is a great hotel from which to explore Shanghai.

The immediate area is a dormitory suburb with some universities and felt very safe.
