    Fantastic Family Stay

    Travelled from Vietnam up into China with our final stop in Shanghai. The HoJo was just the spot to finish our trip - close to everything, right on Nanjing Road - we couldn't believe it. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

    Eye opening

    The front desk not that helpful in giving directions, really need to get the doorman to deter all the tourist chasers the only thing not offered anywhere was a good restaurant , the Family Mart about a block away more than friendly had Thai noodles in a cup and a good range of sushi . The pool and sauna were great . Tried about every small restaurant for 3 blocks its winter and everything is full of fat for a great Italian experience try the sizzling sausage plate and fries at Tamati about 2 blocks down real Italian sausages and bacon

    Old style decor and style

    Not recommended if you are looking for a modern hotel stay. Old style decor and style was not what I was looking for in an international brand.

    Better than expected ... but nowhere near 5 stars!

    Nice room, clean comfortable but no individual A/C control. Dreadful pillows but great bed, nice pool, good location, indifferent and rarely helpful staff. But dont order tea or coffee in the cafe - 2 cups of tea cost more than the rest of our two breakfasts put together - almost $10 each! Cheaper to drink spirits!

    Very good dumpling bar just out the back of the hotel. Three of us had lunch for $5- ie half the price of a single cup of tea in the hotel!

    Fabulous place to stay

    The front desk staff were most welcoming and always helpful. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable.The General Manager personally made us feel welcome, especially as it was our first time in Shanghai. The location is great and as far as value for money goes, the best!

    Location, location, location!

    This is a superior hotel as one would ecpect with its 4* rating. Room was large and well-appointed, except the air con would not turn down from 23ºC, so one slept on top of the doona! Also, the lighting was controlled by a complicated console that was highly erratic. Restaurant a bit disappointing for range and price, but the Bar served good light meals at good rates. The best thing about this hotel is its location, moments from E.Nanjing Rd., a major focal street for locals and a picture at night. About equidistant from the Bund in one direction and People's Square in the other, and a short walk from a subway stop for access to the whole city, it would be hard to find a more central location. The subway stop also gives access to the Airport for a fraction of the cabfare, if you have the time and confidence and are frugally minded. We had transfers so it was academic. The minor equipment glitches were annoying but overall it was still worth the reasonable tariff and I would stay there again.

    Don't miss the ERA Acrobatic show. A $5 cabride each way, plus a range of ticket prices. Book in advance but if you don't find it exhilarating I will be very surprised.

    Good location

    The location was great, within walking distance to People's Square and near restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable. I wont recommend it for a family of 4 if you each want a bed. We had to request for an extra bed for our kid and found it quite pricey at cny250/night and breakfast was payable for kids under 12 eventhough we were on the club floor.
