Smart clean hotel "close" to airport.

Posted Sep 25, 2017
Pros: Clean, comfortable, wifi
Location: good for going to the airport
I checked in late and was upgraded to a superior room. The bellboy said "we've given you the first room on this floor" - what I didn't realise until I'd gone to bed was that the lift shaft was on the other side of my room, and I could hear the lifts going up and down. Whilst not intrusive it was noticeable - like a distant plane taking off. Didn't stop me sleeping. Don't kid yourself that this hotel is adjacent to the airport. Its a 20 minute taxi ride. I didn't get a chance to have breakfast, dimmer or use the gym etc.

Good transit hotel

Posted Sep 15, 2017
Pros: Room cleanliness, size. Rates fair.
Cons: Some additional English speaking staff
Location: Did not leave the property.
Good hotel close to Pudong airport. Free shuttle to the airport, but very unclear where to find the shuttle TO the hotel. Had to take taxi and was charged far more than proper for a 20 minute ride. The hotel is very nice. Good size rooms with over-sized bathroom. Only downside was the staff (other than front desk) spoke virtually no English. Very challenging unlike what you find in the city proper. Overall, if I were transiting I would stay here again.

Gym staff not friendly

Posted Aug 28, 2017
I stayed there for 5 days. The room desing is great. It is little bit far from city and need a taxi in and out. The gym instructor occupy the equipment that I want and chatted with other staff to complain about his manager. He definitely was aware that I was waiting next to him. But he totally ignore that. Bad experience.

decent hotel near PVG

Posted Aug 5, 2017
Pros: near airport
Cons: Staff, Breakfast
Location: in residential area, nothing to do around this hotel
There are not many good hotels near PVG when you have a layover. this hotel is about 20 minutes from the airport by taxi. costs around 100yens. The hotel supposedly has a shuttle , but it is only convenience for going to the airport. make sure to inform them one day ahead of your departure time. the hotel is a "Chinese 5 star" , the non-smoking room smells of cigarette. the breakfast not so good. the hotel is in a residential neighborhood, and the way from airport is scary at night!!!! Use this hotel if you are on layover in Shanghai for only one night.
