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.

Nice place for an overnight before a flight.

It was clean and luxurious. The cleanest hotel i have stayed at in China, where even 4 star hotels are worn-out and grimy. It is close to the airport. A 30RMB taxi ride. And I took the airport shuttle service back. But it is under an overpass in the middle of nowhere. So don't expect to eat anywhere other than the hotel. There is a KTV as part of the hotel. Out of curiosity, I asked how much. 600Rmb for a room with a girl. Yes, that kind of girl. I guess it's common in China.

Good hotel near Hong Qiao Airport, but too far from Shanghai downtown!

Posted Apr 10, 2015 on Orbitz
I just stayed here for a night to catch a flight from Shanghai. It's very close to Hong Qiao airport and hence a fairly isolated neighborhood with minimal public transit availability, and too far from Shanghai downtown. However, the hotel looks nothing less than a royal palace from the outside as well as inside. Rooms, staff and services were also quite good.

Honquiao Airport Hotel

Posted Sep 24, 2014 on Orbitz
very convenant for a late night arrival and early deparure,, very close to the airport, but the directions in Chinese givenfor the taxi were not complete and the taxi driver took a long (probbably in purpose to charge more). Breakfast was very average.
