We stayed one night due to an early flight next morning. It was very convenient and shuttle bus for free. Staff not very welcoming and their English is poor. Can recommend as a one night stay definitely not longer...

We stayed here 1 night after arriving in Shanghai quite late. The hotel was awful. The woman on reception was so rude and unwelcoming. The 'free' shuttle would only pick you up from terminal 1 which was far as we have a toddler and it was late. We ended up getting a taxi which cost 30RMB (same as the hotel... More

We booked two rooms for one night only as we would fly to the other place the next day. The rooms are huge with big bed enough for adult and children. Its furniture looks pretty new. Free airport shuttle bus is provided for sending guests from the airport to the hotel. It is nice that the staff in the airport... More

+ everything was great, free transport from/to airport, very good food next to the hotel - poor english of the staff, you have to take a taxi to get to the nearest metro station (5km - 23RMB), but to get back to the hotel you won't find taxi - only local drivers

Location is good since there are several eating place around its block, and foot massage parlors are everywhere. Only bad side is their rooms smells cigar smoke. Breakfast is bad, very limited Chinese food. Ideal for transient stay only.

I reserved a room at this hotel through ctrip. A small single room for only 168RMB. I arrived at Pudong airport, and only by calling ctrip several times did I learn that the shuttle bus would meet me at Terminal 1, first floor, exit 9. The staff at the hotel speaks very little English, but the guy that arranges the... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night, as I had an early morning flight to Xi'an the next day. I could only recommend this hotel for this purpose only. The room was clean and very basic - bed, bathroom, TV. No safe, no fridge. The restaurant attached to the hotel was, annoyingly, not operating the night that I stayed,... More

Make sure that you are totally sure from where to get the shuttle to the hotel when you land in Pudong airport. They did not pick up from normal hotel bus point, but asked us to come to "long distance bus" point crossing all the way from Terminal 2 and then Terminal 1. I would have never found the bus...

If you're looking for an inexpensive hotel for a one-nighter near Pudong airport, look no further! Clean, comfortable, and inexpensive hourly shuttle to the airport. Free buffet breakfast and wired internet access (free) in room. Things that might turn you off initially... it is hot in summer and the public areas of the hotel (except the lobby and restaurant) are... More

Its close to the Pudong Airport, & has a Bus pickup service..It takes about 20 minutes in the bus to arrive at the Hotel.. Rooms are clean, breakfast ..although Chinese style is ample...
