Dear guest, thank you for your stay in Holiday Inn Express Zhabei Shanghai and your exciting comments. As a mid-end hotel, it offers less service and more freedom compared with luxury brand hotels. It really saves money. From check in to departure, Holiday Inn Express is the perfect choice to stay smart. Hope your next arrival would be an ever-lasting...

5 minutes walk from Shanghai Railway station in a "spotty" location. The hotel itself is quite functional but has little charm. Appears lots of tour groups use it. The check-in was efficient, the breakfast was adequate, and the rooms are OK if not a little worn. A couple of English language stations on the TV. The wi-fi is good but...

Always a balance between price and location the holiday inn meets that. No more than 15-20 minutes from Nanjing Rd, the Bazaar or the Bund (25 ¥ in good traffic) HI has basic but well appointed rooms with a neat bathroom setup. King bed, desk, occassional table and sofa bed, what more do you need? Double glazing reduces traffic noise...
