Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RoadWarrior168 Convenient location and great breakfasts
The hotel is a 2 minute walk to the Metro subway station so you can go almost anywhere in Shanghai.
They offer a variety of breakfast food in their buffet including western eggs, bacon, sausage, pancake, cereal, fruit juices or traditional Chinese food of steamed dim sum, porridge, veggies, noodles cooked for you, fresh fruits, and soup. The wait staff is attentive and keeps your hot beverage cup constantly filled.
I can heartily recommend this hotel for a pleasant stay in Shanghai.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HChen Fair stay
Room environment is fair comparing to other holiday inn.
It feels like more holiday inn express regarding to living environment, room facilities, space, clearness, location.
However, food quality and diversity is beyond my expectation.

the hotel location is very good and convenience because station is near and easy to get TAXI.

If raining feel spo bad to move to another tower.
Breakfast menu is not enough, hope to provide more Chinese(Shanghai) original foods.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Klausen Poor facility and bad service
I have to say the only advantage of this hotel is its location, extremely close to Shanghai rail station. Except this, there is nothing worthy living in this hotel: poor & old facility, small room, poor breakfast and staff with bad attitude. Personally, I will never come back to it again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fung Hotel Front Desk people were too busy !! And need to improve !!
Actually for my October trip, I had stayed Holiday Shanghai Downtown 3 times !
But while I checked from the web, I just found only 1 stay on October 18th Friday night, but I had 2 more stay on October 10 Thursday night and October 15 Tuesday night.
Seems the hotel Front Desk People were too too busy, or they don't want to have extra works, because while I presented my Priority Club member card, peole returned it to me, and say ok.
But the facts were NOT OK, as I cannot find my staying record from IHG official web !!
Need to improve !!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JackyWacky Excellent Service
I stay 3night and the room was supert ! The area it not for sightseing since it located right behind the Shanghai Railway Station. But for that reason is very easy to travel around Metro, Bus and Train. From Pudong bus number 5 will take u straight to the hotel 1h20min and coast only 22RMB . But during my stay I had a issue with my VISA and the Hotel Staff resolve this matter very very well and I thanks to all the Manager and a TRAINEE that help me. Is hard to adjust to a country like China, but this hotel staff will help you at the best. The outside of the hotel is old , but the room are new , so dont let the building look fool you. HI Downtown you guys will be the one I will choose to stay whenever Im in Shanghai.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LoneTrekker Strategic location in downtown.
I chose this hotel due its strategic location in the city where I can commute easily to my visits around the city area in Shanghai. Within 5 mins walk, there is the main Shanghai Railway station, the mrt Line10 (can link to other mrt lines) and an airport bus stop behind the hotel. However, it can be quite noisy due to the heavy traffic and getting a cab may take a while. Nonetheless, the hotel is quite comfortable for a short stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cxwei 酒店明显陈旧 看不出像4星的酒店
酒店从外面看上去就显得陈旧的感觉，不像4星酒店该有的气派，大堂还可以，可是内部就明显陈旧 房间也很小，比智选假日的房间还要小 设施也显陈旧，床上用品还是比较舒服的，员工的态度和服务还不错，早餐也很丰盛，总体来说酒店比较老 价格能再便宜一点，性价比会更高！

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by inspiration001 在四星级里面服务非常出色的一家
这次是为'梦享中华'活动在皇冠假日和洲际之间切换而住这家酒店的, 入住的是行政套房(预定的是行政套房,结果发现没有给白金会员往上升的房型了,订房中心和前台沟通后给了普通行政的价格,实际入住的还是行政套, 赞一下前台的理解和帮助).
总体的感觉是- 服务4.8星,硬件3.3星,地段4星,价格4.5星, 行政待遇4.8星,平均4星+; 在我住过的所有四星级酒店里面,服务非常专业的一家,员工都很成熟,和前两天住过的两个新Crown plaza形成对比. 行政房的待遇很给力, HH的事务很可口,给会员的欢迎果盘不错.
硬件没有办法- 这个全闸北区第一家四星级酒店应该有些年头了,所以房间硬件比较一般; 大厅入口的旋转门比较小,而且教旧了,建议翻新或改电动门;健身房不少设备9点多就断电,而且没有服务员,建议跑步机等保持通电状态.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by up2c Good Software, Bad Hardware
Generally, with a great location, Holiday Inn Shanghai Downtown has vintage, but the details should be improved.
1. Good location: near Shanghai Railway Station. I went around at noon for lunch and found out the hotel is among a business district and can easily find Shanghai cuisine, shopping center and office buildings;
2. Nice staff: I was warmly welcomed by the bell boy who help me with my luggage, though waited for a little bit long for check-in. When I was coming out at night, a staff tried really hard to find me a taxi.
1. Noise: I required a non-smoking floor but the hotel failed to make it and instead arrange another room, which is a nightmare. the room was by the side of the road. Even when windows were closed, I heard horns from outside, especially in busy hours.
2. What made it worse it that the room is near a staff elevator room and a linen room. When snapping in the afternoon, I was waken up several times by the noise of people talking and door opening/closing.
