The location of the hotel is excellent. Within walking distance (5 mins) from Shanghai Train Station and the subway. Breakfast was good. However, the hotel does look very outdated in its exterior and security was a small concern in that you do not need to insert the key card to access the floors. Wifi was bad maybe because I was...

I am in town for medical procedures and needed something central. The staff are helpful, beds are comfortable, and the rooms are clean. If you are too lazy to go out to eat (some choices nearby), I'd say get sherpas delivery. Tons of choices! Excellent value for money. Will definitely stay again.

As always, good service but I must say that the rooms at this particular holiday inn are rather small and old. They were remodeling the lobby when we came so entrance access was very limited. Great location though, right next the train station and metro stop

Good place to stay if you plan to catch a train to the other cities in China. Shanghai train station and the nearest metro station is a 10 mins walk away. Many small eateries and convenience stores nearby. Note that there is another Holiday Inn Express nearby so don't end up in the wrong one.

I stayed in Holiday Inn downtown for 4 nights in May 2016. The good thing about this hotel is its location.
