A jewel in ShanghaiPosted Oct 29, 2013
Try get a zoo facing room. Open them windows and enjoy the quiet. Great neighbourhood, cooperative staff, I always like staying for a night or two at the GreenTree Honqiao. Thumbs up.

Decent HotelPosted Oct 13, 2013
Pros: View of the zoo. Close to airport, not noisy. Outlets that fit three pronged laptop cord. Fridge, sink, microwave. Relatively clean. Hardwood floors.
Cons: Room a little small. TV remote hard to use (in Chinese). Neighborhood outside a little noisy. Not very convenient to get to airport in the early morn.
Location: There is a small french bakery style cafe (Le Fournil) across the street which was somewhat nice.
I think this hotel was a great value. It was small but comfortable. Clean enough. I had a nice view of the zoo after requesting a room with a view. It was a little noisy - I heard some noises from my neighbors and some children playing in the neighborhood, but no airplane/traffic noises. My biggest concern is location - I needed to get to the Hongqiao Railway Station by 7am to catch my train, but the Shanghai Zoo Metro Station opened at 6:30. There is a station 2 mi north that opens closer to 6, but either way, it would be a long journey in the dark to reach the Metro. And while the surrounding neighborhood didn't seem like a bad neighborhood, it was definitely dark in the early morning/late at night, and not a neighborhood I would like to stay in for long. Thankfully, a man with a shuttle van offered me a ride to the train station for 50RMB. I am not sure if he was with the hotel or not (he may have been working alone, in which case it could have ended badly for me!), but I was able to get to the train station on time. All together, though, this room was a great value for the price if you are looking for a room in the area. If you want something really close to the airport/train station, I may suggest something even closer.

Spartan, but clean and convenientPosted Jun 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is a very reasonably priced hotel, close to the Hongqiao airport. I stayed here for one night, because I had a late night airport arrival and wanted something close by. The rooms are very basic, and could use some re-painting and general sprucing up. The sink in my room was cracked, but useable. Everything was very clean, and quiet. Staff were quite helpful with questions.

Gem of a placePosted Sep 28, 2012
It's a gem of a place in a cool nieghbourhood. Get a room with windows facing the zoo : quiet and full of zoo sounds at dawn. The staff are obliging and their English is very adequate . Good place for a long stay , with kitchenettes that come in handy . No safes in rooms so be wary of valuables . Overall its a good place to stay and move around shanghai from.

Ok for the pricePosted May 11, 2011
Stayed for 3 nights. Hotel was ok for the price. It has a bedroom and a bathroom and was relatively clean. Ideal if you don't use your room as only for sleeping and washing yourself. Otherwise, I would recommend not to use it.

Good hotel for Hongqiao airport or railway stationPosted May 1, 2011
Good hotel if you need to spend one night before flight or train from Hongqiao airport or train station. Clean, no smell. The bed is quite hard, but with additional blanket under is acceptable.
