fantastic!!!! great location, great staff
Elegant hotel, central location, soft comfortable beds, acommodating staff
This hotel ws perfect iin every way. Centrally located 5 minute walk from People's Square metro train line, this hotel was easy to get to from the local airport and a short walk up the street. Take the time to spend a day on the "Big Bus" tour company for around $50AU the ticket covered entry to Jade Buddah, the 88th floor of one of the largest buildings in Pudong, 90minute river cruise and get on and off the 3 bus routes as many times as you want. The open top double decker busses were great, head phones are provided for you to plug into a multitude of different languages depending on what station you choose. We had english and the dialogue was perfect and very informative. The buffet lunch at the hotel on our last day was enough to keep us going until we arrived at Xi'an the next day by train. It is a 2min walk to the huge shopping mall however if you're after traditional food and traditional shopping walk until you find Fangbang road and explore here for local marketeers and food. We had a fantastic time and it look around 30mins to walk there, we walk pretty quick though so it wasn't a stroll in 30mins. The hotel I can't speak highly enough off, we had 3 mens shirts and a cashmere and wool jacket made as cheap as chips. Highly recommended hotel.

Very nice hotel in good location
Close to Nanjing Road
Very nice hotel with friendly staff. Good pool, sauna and gym. Only negative was that the internet connection was very poor, not good for a business traveller.

Well prices and as good as the others
They had umbrellas you could borrow when the weather got bad
We stayed at a reputable hotel down the road but when we arrived in Shanghai but when I wanted to stay another night the price was too high. So I looked out the window and saw the HJ sign and decided to give this hotel a go. It was fantastic, just down the road (200 metres) and the facilities and service were as good if not better that the other hotel. Close to the Metro line and also near Nanning road. Very assessible with a line from the nearby train station to Hongqiao airport.

Good location, helpful staff but rooms too small
The location of this hotel is very central and the staff is very helpful and speaking english.
The buffet breakfast does not meet the Howard Johnsson hotel standard that we have experienced elsewhere in China and the rooms are really to small- much smaller than at other HJ hotels;: The two of us had a problem finding space to open our suitcases

Very upmarket hotel.
Excellent location within 250m of a subway entrance. Staff spoke reasonably good English which I find rare in China and its territories. Expect a lot of soliciting outside and around the hotel; including offers for 'ladies' right on the door step as you enter the hotel. Service was quite good.

Great Location and service was exceptional!
wifi service, great location, luggage drop off, customer service
The lady I spoke with at the front desk couldn't give me two single beds, because the hotel was fully booked. A little disappointed, she quickly fixed the problem by upgrading the room to a suite, and it was very spacious. Customer service is very good there especially for foreigners.
