convenient. nearby major railway station. friendly & helpful staff.

Only can be rated as a 3 star hotel

walking distance nearby to Shanghai Railway Station (north gate), Shanghai Railway MRT station and Shanghai bus/coach station
Except for convenience, I have nothing but complains / feedback as below: a) I reach 10 am on 25 Oct 2015 but can only check in after 12 pm even thou I did indicate in my online booking request I need to early check in due to my early morning flight. b) There is no mini bar fridge install in all standard rooms (Queen or double single bed). c) Don't know what happen to the air-condition (thanks god it is autumn / winter season now), try calling up the hotel helpdesk line 0 but the staff told me they only turn on air-con at night (which does not happen at all), but I manage to open up the hotel room window slightly to let in some cold fresh air, if not I will be suffocate. d) This is Shanghai, and this is the Shanghai Central Railway Station, but sadly the North Gate area which this hotel is situated has nothing much to offer nearby (no supermarket, no shopping mall, not many shops or mini-marts etc) as compare to the South Gate area which is bustling with shops, shopping malls, eateries, office building, restaurants and more. e) To call itself a 4 star hotel as compare to many 4 star hotels internationally is a joke; there is no swimming pool, no gym, no spa, no mini-mart - basically nothing except for a café which serve free breakfast on level 1 daily and a laundry room on level 3 which you need to spend RMB 25 (purchase token from frontdesk at level 1) for each washing machine load wash or to dry your clothes using the dryer. Even the iron and iron board is in this room if you need to use it. Then inside the hotel room to watch cable TV it has less then 20 channels, which as compare to other China budget hotels is so much lesser (typically all other China budget motels or hotels e.g. 7 Days, Home Inns have more than 60 channels on their cable TV), There are no free newspapers given to guests daily either. As such I cannot rate is as a 4 star hotel given the standard I have seen.

Great hotel for convenience and value

Location, Price, Convenience
Right next to the Shanghai Railway Station (CAREFUL! There are more than 1 railway stations in Shanghai). Right next to a subway station so not hard to get to any of the sights and also to th shopping districts. Front desk staff very efficient and helpful. Rooms are clean. They are renovating rooms a few at a time, which is needed since some rooms are a little dated. Especially the carpeting. But still ok.

Perfectly located

This hotel if right next to the Shanghai railway station. Also right next to a subway station. The room was quite satisfactory.
This us a great hotel from which to explore the city as it is right at a subway stop and only a few subway stops from the bund, from great shopping and dining districts. And if you wish to do train travel to other parts of China, it really is right next to the train station. But be careful. There are other railways stations on Shanghai. This one is the main again in the city. The hotel rooms are clean. Rooms need renovating and that's what they are doing nowa few at a time. The front desk staff is great.

Best Value Hotel

Clean, service and breakfast
4 nights in HIE Zhabei was quite comfortable, the room is clean but smelly at the first day. Breakfast has many varieties of chinese beverages, and maybe not tasty for westerner. The location, although it is near from Shanghai Railway Station, it's quite a long walk to the subway station. It needs 10-15 min to reach the metro station. Overall it was a pleasure stay.

Holiday Inn Express is alwaysmy first choice

Great location, value for money, good staff
Holiday Inn always my first choice, either for holiday or business. The location is just great and the staff are so good. I reach hotel at 8am, and I told them i will rest at lobby . Even the check in time is 2pm, they knew that I just landed Shanghai this morning and is very exhausted, the receptionist made me a coffee and allow me to check in at 9.30am when the 1st room had clean by housekeeping, I feel so touching

Best Location Ever

Strategically located; well maintained & helpful staffs
Other than it's all rounder location, the hotel has been maintained well since my last visit. I have also noticed their breakfast spread improved, eg. a separate & more efficient preparation counter for fried eggs; omelette, dumpling noodles etc.. As mentioned earlier, unusual in China to providing complimentary meals for all hotel guest/ occupants 👍

best budget hotel in shanghai

location, price, and large room
Really large, clean, comfortable room. Location - right next to the shanghai railway station and long distance bus station. Right on top of lines 1, 3 and 4 makes it easy to get around town. Staff speak English and are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was basic but enough variety of foods.
