Very nice, clean and no mold or smoke smell

Posted Jan 6, 2016
Pros: Heated rooms, good breakfast, great staff. Near to the HongQiao airport and a shuttle bus runs every hour.
Cons: The refrigerator wasn't cold. Just cool. I like my drinks cold. Not much to do in the area and the wifi signal was unusable.
Location: Not much in the area except a large convention center. The nearest metro station is about a 15 minute walk.
I was concerned as I had read reviews of other on the smell of mold in the room. I am not sure if I got a good room or if they had replaced the carpets, but the room didn't smell like mold or smoke, which is rare. I didn't have a sinus headache the whole time. Overall it is comfortable, breakfast is good and the staff is great. I was there during the cold season and the room was nice and warm. One major issue is that the Wi-Fi signal is unusable. The internet is good and decent speed, but the signal is in and out. If you plug into the wired connection behind the desk, it is fine. I used a small portable router that I carry with me while travelling that covers the room, so for me it was fine.

Big name hotel but not so great features

Posted Dec 1, 2015
Pros: Lower price and closer vicinity to the train station
Cons: Shower area; breakfast food selection.
Location: Very close to train station and the exhibition convention center.
Shower experience is a mess; water gets out everywhere during shower because the glass door didn't seal water completely plus the water drainage didn't work properly on the outside shower area. Room lighting feels dark. Overall, the hotel seems a bit run down even with the Howard Johnson name. Perhaps, it explained the lower price.

Ok to sleep but not much more...

Average hotel with poor service in bar and western restaurang. Rooms smelled from smoking even if they we're no smoking and wifi in the rooms was just not to be found, but free :). Some kind of very slow connection could be found in the lobby even if a single web page took like 4 min to load. If you'd like to stay close to the airport and get shuttle service there and no other expectations around the experience it could be worth the money if you get a good deal. Ok cleaned in important areas like bed and bathroom, though.

Rymligt och bekvämt hotell nära Hongqiao Airport

Stor och pampig lobby, stort rum, nära Hongqiao Airport. Närområdet har dock inte mycket att erbjuda och WiFi-mottagningen på rummet var väldigt bristfällig.
