Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sean811 Good hotel with accessibility to underground and nearby mall
Have been frequently staying in this hotel since March 2012 due to my work requirements. Overall I am satisfied with the hotel however, they need to change their pillows and bedsheets as I felt their pillow were rather flat and not an actual pillow to sleep on. It made my neck rather stiff in the mornings. As for the bedsheets, although it is clean but the material made it feel like sandpaper that scratches against your skin while moving around.
What I was not too happy about was that I would expect when staying in a non-smoking room on a non-smoking floor that it would be entirely smoke free. Unfortunately, that is not always the case as you can get visitors that actually smoke in their room which, unfortunately, does spread over to the other rooms. And as being a Priority Club Platinum member and a regular customer that stays for more than 2 weeks at a time (overall for 2012, I have spent a total of 100+ nights at this hotel), I felt there's not enough recognition not only for the amount of time spent but also for the overall cost that I have paid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CaptnScott clean, comfortable, reliable
I have stayed at this hotel a number of times. It is a good value for such an expensive city. The hotel is always clean, the staff always responsive. Now that a subway station has opened a few blocks away it is convenient for mass transit.

the room is relatively small.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carguy350 Enforce no smoking policy & improve breakfast choices and quality
I stayed in a non-smoking level, but customers in other rooms smoked; it irritates me. Management should enforce no-smoking policy.
I stayed in the hotel for over 10 days, the breakfast choices are almost the same, it gets old after a few days. Also, there is no creativity at all from the cooking staff. Don't cook the same stuff everyday. The quality can be better.

Close to shopping mall and also not far from metro line 3 & 4. You can ask for river view room, and enjoy old-shanghai feeling.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by William1297 Typical Holiday Inn Express
Room is clean but too small. I got a room facing river which is awesome. It's a typical Holiday Inn Express. Cost is very reasonable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by William55 For a good night's sleep choose Holiday Inn Express
I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the room, the comfort of the pillows and the sound proofing of the rooms. I am able to sleep well even though this is not my own bed. I recommend this hotel on this point mainly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by asashu Inconvenient for taxi and poor service
If you check out / go out of hotel in the morning by taxi, you had better not stay here.
Taxi never comes here in early busy time.
I had to wait for one hour to get just a taxi.
And service level is as per fare, so do not expect too much.
(Receptionist is busy for playing game and no greeting is normal here.)

My experience with Holiday Inn Express is excellent. It fit perfectly with my expectation and great value. This experience led me to book the Holiday Inn Express in Shenzhen a few days later while I was there. Same great experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WLHK An Oasis!!
I visited Shanghai recently for a business trip. When my friend recommended me to stay in the Putuo Holiday Inn Express, I was surprised by the price, which is really reasonable. When I arrived, I was impressed by the service and environment. The staff is professional, yet hospitable. Location is very convenient, Metro is just walking distance away. The staff could also help chartering vehicles, 24hrs. service. Thank you so much. You really make a traveller feels at home!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RichardFromBeijing More western b/f choices needed, otherwise great
I like Chinese breakfast options so it was no problem for me, but my parents and sister found slim pickings - just toast, really. All you need to add is some fresh fruit and perhaps some croissants or something.
Otherwise we had a great stay here, convenient to subway, clean comfortable rooms.
Front desk guy a little eager to please and processed my bill on my credit card without asking how I'd prefer to pay (cash, to avoid fees). I only stayed one night, so no biggie, but I'd have preferred the choice.
I recommend this place and would stay again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MF66 breakfast
I usually stay at least for about two weeks in this hotel, but the breakfast remains the same, It is poorly prepared. I also stay in Wujiaochang Holiday Express, where more variety of breakfast is available. During the recent stay in Putuo, I had to walk more than half hour away from the hotel to get some breakfast. Other people in my company had the same bad feeling about the breakfast. We are thinking of staying in other hotels during our next trip.
We all made some comments at the hotel, but nothing changed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Twydeutschland A good property generally
The river-side hotel offers great view and environment for you to relax.
I've arrived quite late on the day and got an upgraded river-view room, nice!
Also the hotel is close to L11 Longde station, you'd better take the metro as it is quite hard to call a taxi in front of the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Asian168 An affordable and functional choice in Shanghai
With free in-room Internet and breakfast (so so), this hotel is a pleasant surprise. It is a short walk to metro line 11, which involves 2 or 3 transfers if you want to go to many parts of town. But overall, it is an affordable and functional choice. Staff gets job done, but can use a bit more friendliness, such as recognizing Priority Club members. Sometimes the wait is long, as if everybody at the reception desk are helping the party in front of me, rather than moving through the line more quickly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lynda24 Great location for subway
We stayed here for the Chinese grand prix. It is 5 mins walk from the subway line that takes you directly to the circuit. We were back in the hotel 40 mins after the race ended!
Not many eating places near the hotel but plenty across the main road near Carrefour.
