Royal International Hotel
Ranked #113 of 5,137 Hotels in Shanghai
Reviewed 16 October 2016

This hotel is situated in the Chuansha district of Shanghai. If you have an early morning flight out of Shanghai PuDong (or expecting to arrive very late at night). This hotel has all the modern amenities you would expect. The rooms are comfortable and staff are helpful. I would definitely recommend it for a short stopover before or after a flight.

Chuansha is still being developed, so can feel a bit isolated from the usual buzz of Shanghai. A new shopping mall is being constructed (which can be seen from the west facing side of the hotel). Chuansha station on Line 2 is roughly about 15 minutes walk from the hotel, or a 5 minute taxi ride.

I have stayed in both sides of this hotel before, although while all the rooms I have stayed in are comfortable, I would recommend staying on the western side of the building, so that you're facing the garden area with the large screen. The view is a little more open.

While the staff can arrange a taxi for you, the driver may charge a few RMB extra for the fact that it was called via phone. You may be unable to hail a taxi from the streets as the area can feel relatively quiet at times.

Consider this hotel 1-3 day airport stopovers only.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side of the building face the large views-creen outside.

Book the courtesy shuttle bus as the hotel is about 30 mins from the airport. When going to airport make sure you leave with plenty of time as check-in/security at Pu Dong is s-l-o-w!
Not the hotel's fault and staff advised that an earlier shuttle bus rather than a later one would be sensible.
Room was big but trendily gloomy to the extent that the numbers on the combination locks of the cases couldn't be read without the (provided) rechargeable flashlight.
Bed good but sleep not easily come by as aircon was locked at 25c, making the room far too hot for comfort and opening windows were not available. Staff advised that this was because it was officially winter, even though outside temp was around 28c!
Breakfast OK, but available selection quite modest.

Room was very large, very good air conditioning and excellent bathroom.

Booked an executive room and when going to lounge there was a sign that person was away for a few minutes. Went back later and still sign was up. Called front desk and they mentioned lounge is only open from 2 pm - 4 pm (?). They offered a drink coupon to be used in lobby lounge, but coupon was only for a soft drink, not good for a beer.

Requested shuttle bus for 5:30 am but bus only starts at 6 am, flight was at 9 am, front desk advised Plenty of time. Bus left on time and took only 15 minutes, but there was a long line up outside airport to go through security check 1, then another VERY LONG line up to go through customs (about 45 min). We travelled business class but no separate line. Then again a line up to go through security check 2. So leave yourself enough time when booking shuttle otherwise take taxi.

Shuttle yes, but only once every hour
Breakfast very basic, staff typically chinese mentality (you will not be charmed).
Rooms clean and fairly big - their security cameras are limited and does not serve its purpose

Stayed one night before going to another city flying out of Pudong. I have transportation so i did not reserve the airport shuttle. The area is pretty safe if you like to go out to Chinese restaurants a block away, left and right of the hotel. There are also McDonald, Burger King and pizza place.
Room is clean WiFi was slow, but OK for email. I used the Howard Johnson sites and there is no P/W. Free breakfast was fine.
