"Great location, nice hotel"
Stayed at this hotel for the recent AFL game held in Shanghai. Hotel is very well located, one street away from the Shanghai mall and very close to Nanjing Rd East metro station. Hotel staff were excellent and desk staff spoke very good English. Breakfast was international buffet with additional options of made to order omelettes and noodle/dumpling soups ( which were great) Hotel is clean and well presented. There are a number of coffee shops, fast food, restaurants and an open air cafe/bar nearby. It's an easy stroll down to the Bund. Shanghai metro is very easy to use which allows access to all of the city areas.
"Nice hotel in great location."
We were more than happy with this hotel and its location. Nanjing shopping mall 1 min walk, hop on hop off bus stop right outside the door, 10 min walk to The Bund.The staff were courteous, spoke good English. Our room was comfortable, we were on the 10th floor, Pool and spa was excellent. Good free wifi in room. Only negative was the bed was too firm for us. All in all a very pleasant stay. Would recommend this hotel.
"Old Hotel, Okay Location"
I was staying at this hotel for 2 out of 5 nights stay in Shanghai. At first I was given room on 6th floor that have dust. The second much worse, the room smelly and damp. I changed the room again to the 15th floor. The room was outdated, toilet a little bit dirty and there insufficient amount of lightning in the room. Also, I was told to call again in 20 minutes since the concierge is busy (This never happened to me before). The only good thing about this hotel is the location. I would recommend not to stay in this hotel until they renovated and improve their service. It's better to stay at another hotel near the area.
"Okay hotel - Great Location!"
The only thing I really liked in the hotel was its location! It was very convenient in terms of its proximity to the subway. You can either take the subway from Nanjing Rd E or from Peoples Square. Plus the pedestrian street at Nanjing Road was literally a few meters away (which we loved). The location of other attractions from the hotel was also very ideal. We walked to the Bund from the hotel (more or less about 15 minute walk), it was also one subway station away from the Shanghai Old Street and Yu Garden. Plus 2-3 stations away from Jing an Temple. The hotel and the rooms itself did look a bit rundown. The rooms looked old, and the carpet felt a little dirty. A renovation would definitely be a plus! The staff at concierge were not very helpful and we were always told different things when we asked for help. We wanted to know about how we could get to the Huangpu River Cruise ticketing area; first we were told that we can let them know when we were planning on going for the cruise so that if we would like a taxi then they would be able to get us one. However when we requested for taxi, we were told that we should just go flag one down ourselves outside. We also inquired if they are able to book the cruise tickets for us and all they said is that there is a ticketing service outside at nanjing st, where we could book. (Turns out we needed to book at Shiliupu Wharf) As for our request to have our train tickets booked for our train ride back to Beijing, we were told that we can come back the next day because they can only book tickets until 4:30pm. We were at concierge at 4 pm ( I remember checking the time on my phone). We already had all the details necessary for them to easily book such as the time and train type we wanted. Despite the location being very very ideal, I would not stay at Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel again. I would prefer to stay at the many other hotels near by
