Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Caroline99 Nice environment and overall good service
The hotel is located in a quiet and green neighborhood, facing river and a lot of green lush. Reasonable distance to shopping mall, eating place and the subway station. Service is overall ok. I reserved a non-smoking room but the room smelled of smok when I got it, probably because the previous guest smoked. The hotel did some treatment of the room after I complained and it somehow worked. Not so many taxis come by, but the hotel always managed to get one, just need a little bit patience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JEDM what a surprise
this is my first time staying in holiday inns, my friend just told me it's a place worth to try without specifying what make it different from other hotel. Good feeling start when check in, although there are quite a crowd there, staff are performing professionally and effectively. When i enter the room, it's clean and one important thing is that the room temperature is under good control, that is crucial for good sleep as a frequent traveller!

Very rude hotel service. Despite we made a reservation for 3 persons we get room with one kingbed, they want us to extra pay for another bed. Receptionist and manager told us that we pay for room not for beds so "in one kingbed room may be over 5 persons".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Clean and Neat Hotel
This is a excellent hotel for money. It is simple but very clean and well maintained hotel. The staff are very friendly and provide excellent service. Taxi is not easy to get in the front of the hotel. But the staff will help you to call a taxi for you or provide helpful guideline for other alternative transportation such as subway or you can walk 5 minutes to access a taxi more easier.

Nice and efficient room, outstanding bed and bedding. Breakfast adequate but not great. The location can be a bit of a challenge to get taxis.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jaymee Value for Money
Hotel room is great but the room was stuffy as they only on the heater function. I have to keep the window open so that i can get some cool air into the room. Location is ok, near to train station Longde Rd (Line 11), it is about 5 - 7mins walk from the hotel. Difficult to get taxi as the hotel was located in the recidential area, very peaceful and quite. For me despite difficult to get a taxi, i am quiet happy with this hotel. No many taxi knows this hotel, i learnt and tell them " i am going to Guangfu Xi Lu, Wuning Qiao Xia (underneath the Wuning Bridge)".
I will come back to this hotel again for my next visit to Shanghai.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Blick88 Not conveniently located
This hotel is comfortable. The breakfast is customary Chinese fare with some Western food. The staff speaks minimal English, but are very pleasant. The location is not in the best location for taxi service. Taxis are available to/from the airport....but if you are looking to taxi in the city, this would not be a great location. The walk is substantial to the main road. Most taxi drivers, even when given instructions in Chinese, did not understand the location of the hotel.

Buen hotel, a 5min andando de la parada de metro.
El desayuno mejorable, se repite apenas hay platos nuevos, al de dos dias se van repitiendo casi la totalidad de platos.
No tiene minibar, importantisimo para dias de mucho calor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JWK2013KSK Very comfortable bed and pillows.
Holiday Inn Express Shanghai Putuo is in a lovely area of Shanghai. We enjoyed a riverview room and the quiet atmosphere. There is a lovely river walk not far from the hotel. The bed and pillows were so comfy! Towels were soft and BIG and the shower quite nice. Shanghai Putuo only serves a Chinese breakfast so you might want to consider other options. The price value of this room is EXCELLENT! ! ! This hotel is just a few minutes walk from the subway and also from a nice shopping area.

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.

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!
