"The hotel building looks old from the outside but the rooms seems to have been renovated not that long ago and seems new. For the price, I think you will be mostly satisfied with this hotel even though of course there will be better hotels in Shanghai at a higher price. The staff are polite and efficient even though communications in English may be difficult for them but that is a problem you will encounter in many places in Shanghai."

"I booked a twin room for my teenage 2 children who were travelling from Japan to New Zealand via Seoul and Shanghai. They said the staff were friendly and very helpful and spoke some English. The room was clean and tidy - they had a great sleep. The buffet breakfast was lovely and although it was predominantly meat-based, there were enough vegetarian options for them to be satisfied - including vegetarian steamed buns! The hotel itself was very nice, lovely decor and the location was fantastic, so easy to find, right at the airport - you can't get any closer than that! The wi-fii was easily accessible - use Bing instead of Google (its blocked in China) and you'll have no problems with access. The staff offered to hold their baggage while they did a day trip into Shanghai and gave them a ticket to produce when collecting their bags later. In summary the children said it was a great stay and would definitely recommend it. All of the staff were so helpful. Thank you so much Da Zhong Pudong Airport Hotel for taking such good care of my children!"

"Basic and near to airport ( 15 to 20 minutes ) driving distance. Hotel provides free shuttle service from 5am till 12pm. Every hour has a route from hotel to Pudong airport. Few similar hotels at that area but this is the best as the convenient shop just right beside and there are few restaurants/shop lots behind. Confirmed with front desk if you need a ride to airport and receptionist will ring you for morning call half an hour before the ride. * receptionists don't really speak English..only Chinese so be prepared if you are not able to speak English"

"It was my first time to stay at CitizenM. Location is convenient that it was closed to a huge shopping mall (about 5 mins walk). Suitable for business traveller and people who would like to explore the Hongqiao dist. as it’s closed to National Convention Centre and Hongqiao airport. A young and energetic hotel that brighten our trip in Shanghai. The room surprised me as it was very smart that I could customise lights, AC, blinds, media via an iPad. In addition, I liked how the bathroom used aircraft-like materials and looked very refreshing. We had a lot of fun staying at citizenM with its facilities and its artistic interior design and ornaments. The breakfast was also delicious and my friends and I loved it! Would recommend it to friends and family. "

"It was a tough decision for my friend and I to choose hotel in Shanghai knowing the standard and rate in China can be quite different from other countries. We glad that we chose Grand Central despite some reviews said it has slow wifi. We had no problem with it and in fact even VPN works well for me. We love the fact that it is near Nanjing east station and it is very convenient (Family Mart is just behind the hotel, shopping district is just less than 5 minutes). It only cost us about RMB170 from Pudong airport to the hotel but it costs more from hotel to airport (RMB220).The only thing is we book the promo rate which is without breakfast, so can comment much on the food. Overall it was a pleasant stay. We will definitely go back if we are going to Shanghai again."

"A very pleasant stay. Agoda could have given better instructions to find the hotel. It isn't immediately obvious when entering the airport. It certainly isn't 30 metres from some entrance. But it seems easy once you find it. The airport staff are not particularly helpful in helping you find it. Most don't even know! But the hotel is a kind of oasis in the airport. It really is pleasant.No complaints here. If you must commute to another location in China from Shanghai and need to be at this airport, this is the best choice. "

"I have stayed in other hotels in Shanghai previously but this hotel I would say is the best so far in terms of location, cleanliness, helpful staff, good food served at the restaurant and also strong WiFi signal in room. This hotel so near to the Bund just 8-10 minutes walk and many shopping outlets also within walking distance with the famous Nanjing Street just a stone throw away. I will definitely stay at this hotel from now onwards. For anyone still searching for a hotel in Shanghai, I recommend this hotel without reservation. "

"This 12-to-20th floor hotel is located in a major posh shopping district of Shanghai and there is a metro station just across the street. The amenities are limited for a five-star rated hotel, but the facilities offered are tasteful and top-notch. Our room had a spectacular view overlooking the magnificent Jing-An Temple and beyond. Shopping and food in the area is more than plentiful. The building also hosts a famous spa just below the hotel. The breakfast offering was smaller than expected but still sufficient for both local and western taste buds. The emphasis is on quality rather than quantity. The only minor complaint was the lack of a bathtub. By the way, service is always pleasant and splendid for Chinese-speakers/ nationalists. It seems that most complaints about bad service in China on Agoda are from non-Chinese speakers. Well, conversely... I almost never see any other country catering to non-English/local languages. Well, you know what they say… “When in Rome… ”"

"Shanghai is a city where you'll find it very difficult to catch a cab at peak hours. Staying at this hotel doesn't make it any easier, but the hotel location is right across the street from Sheraton Hotel, Parkson, Friendship Mall, etc., and even from Gubei area, it's less than 30 minutes' walk. The staff understood and spoke English pretty well, were very willing to help and very helpful. I really liked this hotel, and will stay there again if I have next opportunity to visit Shanghai."
