Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Nice hotel away from the chaos
We stayed at the Holiday Inn for 3 nights. Located right next to the main railway station and metro (5mins journey to people's square). Room was spacious, clean and a relaxing change to the busy shanghai city. Really enjoyed our stay.
Not much else in the area and the metro station is a labrynth to get lost in. Breakfast included was not good and a tiny room for that many people.
We only got wifi once on our room, which should be available at all times.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by luke2013 bed and receptionists
The bed is not really comfortable because the firmness of the mattress is not even due to wear and tear of long use.
The front desk personnel need more training ie my wife and I checked in together and expected to have two keys instead of one. Also when asked why there is no wifi signal in the room, the answer was all the rooms have no wifi signal which was not acceptable to me because I stayed in this hotel before and there was no problem with the wifi. The receptionist should simply say the signal is not good in some rooms and you can borrow mini router from the front desk, very simple and guest pleased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hren26 A very good hotel for value oriented travelers
We have stayed at this hotel for more than two weeks during our recent trip to Shanghai and we are very satisfied with the value we get. Although the surrounding area is not ideal, the hotel itself is a very good place to stay. Transportation from the hotel is quite convenient with taxi, bus and subway stations available closeby. The included breakfast is a good start for a day of activities. The room is bigger than average hotel rooms and clean. We will defenitely go back to this hotel next time in Shanghai.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LJet Value for Money but..
This is a value for money hotel.
However, the service has plenty of room for improvement. I would not want to say this is the service level expected of Shanghai, but the promises of staff to call back to confirm items that are left behind during our last stay are not met, not once, not twice, not 3 times, but 4.
The lightings for the common areas of each floor could be brighter.
Other than the above stated issues, itis still recommendable for budget staying.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lawrence62 The bed was very comfortable
I stayed there for 10 days, I don't believe I could've stayed at a better place in Shanghai then at the Holiday Inn express, they were all very so helpful, and I say I don't believe that I could've stayed at a better place I mean price was great the value was the best,

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kline Comfortable bed and CI CO quickly.
The room maintenance is not good
The attitude is very good, check-in check-out quickly,
The general location, away from the subway station distance is not near, the television signal is poor, TV channels are not many. Air conditioning is not good, the bed is comfortable, take a shower is also very comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cfls Better facility than HI in Shanghai, but the air-condition was really poor
Room is clean and bathroom is okay. Breakfast needs to be improved.
The worst thing is the air conditional, which was really smelly, which disappointed me.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Xich1983 Convenient location
I have stayed at this place a few times, mostly for its convenience, since it sits right next to the Shanghai railway station and Shanghai Coach station, and it's a few minutes' walk to the subway.
Free internet is a plus - if your computer doesn't have LAN port, you can borrow a wireless router for free - great convenience for people with only an iPad.
Typical HolidayInn setup - no surprise, and quite cost-effective.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mafan big room, clean room, comfortable
It was great staying there. big room, nice room, comfortable room.. bed is big but its too soft...=x if could be harder alittle more for all the beds it would be best... =) as for those who are looking for WIFI in the room.. only near toilet area or lobby the signal would be strong else it must depends the level. apparently the levels i tried only near toilets or in the toilet den could be able to get connected. as for the cable-lan, its not those super fast kind but still can do normal surfing.. =) Location not near to any shopping area except spectacles shops and railway station... its easy for you to travel to other cities... overall its value for money lastly breakfast is fine for me and partner.. food are really very chinese style. very little western.. however dont expect too much on it.. simple breakfast that could fill up your stomach =)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Random1234 Simple hotel with most of the things you need
Have stayed in this hotel for quite some time and have no major issues.
Would like to take this opportunity to recognise an individual (housekeeping) who takes care of 16th floor (I think identified by the name of Ms Wu) - who has exceeded expectations as compared to most of other customer facing staff of the hotel. This person has great smile at all times and she not only makes guests feel welcome but is also attentive to the needs of hotel guests. Very attentive person to requests for certain toiletries, drinking water, etc. She certainly housekeeps the room and maintains cleanliness of the room to a high standard. I think she deserves recognition from hotel management.
In terms of breakfast, some improvement is really needed (from the kitchen side). Boiled eggs are oily in the outside, fried vegetables are extremely oily and sometimes overcooked. Staff seemed to be quite good in terms of cleaning tables to let other guests dine and should also be recognised for their quick response.
Overall a good hotel with basic needs met to Holiday Inn Express standard.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JFYUL It's raining inside?
They seems to have water problem inside the hotel. On my floor, they had blankets on the flood to collect water from the carpet. I had to change room because the first one smelled moisture, but the girl at the fromt desck wouldn't change it. I had to come back and ask another clerk, he moved me without problem the second time. The new room was just the same. The breakfast was "ok". The proximity of the metro and China Mobile is usefull. People on the street helped me get there. Overall, not the best HIE in Shanghai. Maybe it was just a bad day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Idivwey Breakfast poor, staff and hotel excellent
The hotel is amazingly clean and the staff are quick to respond to a need in the room. They clean and vacuum the rooms and always leave it looking nice.
Location, it is right near the train station but you don't hear the noise and rooms are quiet,
Metro is a ten minute walk but very easy to walk to.
My complaint, the breakfast is not clean. Please fully wash eggs before cooking, especially in the wake of the bird flu.
Luckily McDonald's is very close, and the Internet is fast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HKGguest Almost perfect
The room is spacious, and with free Internet service. My IHG membership enjoyed a free welcome drink (although it is just a can of soda).
If anything missing, would be a refrigerator. As the hotel is not near a convenient store, it is difficult if you want to enjoy a cold drink from the fridge on a hot Shanghai summer evening.
Location wise it isn't near a subway stop, about 10 minute walk.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EricT the worst experience
I've been a member of IHG for years and stayed at various brands of hotel. To be honest, it's the worst experience I've ever had.
1. no shower gel or soap in bathroom.
2. the house keeping tried to break into room in the morning when I was sleeping.
3. televison had color cast badly, poor TV set.
