Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ghfatw Two major problems need addressing
1. The front door staff take Rmb 20 from taxi drivers who want to take guests to the airport. This means taxis avoid this hotel and do not like it and some of the taxis that come to the hotels are not from the good firms. In the end, customers pay for the Rmb 20 charge through lower availability of taxis and longer routes as drivers seek to earn back this money. If you do stay at the hotel, DO NOT use the doormen to get a cab -- get it yourself (avoid red cars) so you avoid fueling their bad habits. Management needs to stamp out what the front door staff are doing.
2. The internet is extremely slow, slower in fact than even China Mobile mobile phone connections. This plus the charge of Rmb 98 per day is somewhat unreasonable. A business hotel should have a good internet connection and this hotel does not.
It's not in a bad location and the rooms are fine. But overall I would avoid this property. I have been a Platinum for many years continuously and travel a lot. This hotel needs to have some changes.

The service was good and fast. I called the reception regarding the battery of telephone. Only in 1-2 minutes the service had replaced the battery.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by YouandMe Maintenance and staff quality declining
Have been to this establishment many time but it was a first return in 2 years.
1.Front desk was friendly.
2.Room was clean and tidy but maintenance is disappointing. When I turned on the shower, water splashed from the joint of the water tube and the tap. It was losely connected and needed to be srewed back.
3.Controlling guests in flow during breakfast hours has always been an issue in this hotel. There was no greeting at the front and it was only after quite a while that I have been seated (with 2 parties jumped the line and just walked in and seated themselves). After I got the food and return to my table, there was a "stranger" eating at my table. I was about to get the waiter when the gentleman left himself.
4.I must tell you, my room rate did not include breakfast and there was NO ONE to check on me when I left. I did not pay for my breakfast up til now. Charge me!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MaAngLi Comfortable, inexpensive Shanghai hotel
I enjoy staying at the Holiday Inn Shanghai Vista hotel. It is located in an up-and-coming neighborhood with many nearby shopping and dining areas. Changshou Road subway station is within 200 meters of the hotel entrance and the hotel is within walking distance (30 to 45 minutes) of the Shanghai Bund, Town God Temple and Xin Tian Di. Shanghai's airports and train stations are conveniently accessible via inexpensive subway trips.
This hotel has a nice swimming pool and work out room. The staff is very friendly and speak passable English. The rooms and common areas are always clean and fresh. This hotel has several restaurants, but other than breakfast, I prefer to sample the local food at many nearby small restaurants and street vendors.
This hotel is nice sanctuary to return to after a busy day working or playing in Shanghai.

Difficult to get taxi. When it rains, guest may need to brave the rain in order to get onto the taxi. Hotel staff do not know how to provide umbrella shelter for guests.
