Holiday Inn Vista Shanghai

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Since my last stay here there was a slight but noticeable improvement of the service. Rooms are solid nothing fancy. Although it is a non smoking hotel the whole room smelled from cigarettes. I like the location it is close to Starbucks Mc Donalds and the subway. ( approx 5 minutes each)

Looking forward to returning to Shanghai with my family in a few months and a stop in Shanghai always means a stay at the Holiday Inn Vista. We have stayed there in the past and it has always exceeded our needs. Not downtown with all the noise and traffic, so walking into the spacious lobby is refreshing. and staff on hand to great their guests. Their front Desk Manager Eva is very pleasant and always has handled our needs quickly and efficiently. She is just one of many helpful and caring staff at this hotel, always stay here if for nothing else the staff, awesome.

The hotel location is good. It's within walking distance to nearest MRT station. There are many local eateries nearby, If you are willing to walk further, there are big shopping malls within 2km distance. There is also some convenience stores nearby, Family mart is just 1 minute walk away from the hotel. The hotel staff are friendly, especially those at the reception area. There is piano performance in the evening, it was good and I really enjoyed the performance. Room is clean, bed is comfortable. Breakfast buffet was good too, there are many choices of food, but I guess the restaurant can be a bit crowded in the morning. Usually I was there around 9am and it was still quite full. There was a tag on the table to indicate that the table is vacant or occupied, good for single traveler, but not many utilize that I think, even the staff cleared my table though I put it as "occupied". It can be quite difficult to get taxi in the area though it was already around 10am. Internet can be a bit slow sometimes. The area is quite a distance from city center, but good for people who do not enjoy crowded areas. It is overall a very good experience, will come back again for future trips.

I got to the hotel after a very long haul trip, I got the room right away (10:00 am) with the proper upgrades based on my membership. Other holiday IHG hotels in Europe and South America should learn about what IHG Asia is doing!. I was very pleased with the service of all the staff I intersected with. The rooms even have individual ear plugs in the room if the noise (which was none) bettors you, awesome! Thank you!

The hotel is only a short bus trip from the main rail station and offers good facilities including a pool. It is a little impersonal but that's efficiency and keeps the prices reasonable. The rooms a clean and staff friendly enough the main lounge is a little cluttered but not where most spend their time so efficient.

The hotel is a good mid range. Rooms are good quality and brakfast is fine. I had to go 1-2 hours twice a day into Pandong area where the most big international companies are situated. Also the international airport is that distance. Also the staff qualification to speak English is poor and the management should work on.

The rating reflects the fact that I stayed at this hotel for a total of 12 hours, most of which were spent sleeping so there was little time to appreciate many of the hotel features. The room was sufficient for a good night's sleep after a long travel day. It had all of the basic needs and was clean enough. The bed featured "soft" and "firm" pillows which was a nice touch, though the mattress was extremely firm. It appeared the bathroom was not fully cleaned after the previous guest as there was some minor trash on the floor near the sink and a few hairs around the floor. After a long day, and considering the short duration of my stay, I did not address it with the hotel. Overall, it served my needs and the price was right.

Location is about 150m from subway. You can take train 7 directly to this hotel from levitating train station, took this route on my way back, but taxi in, paid around RMB 67. The hotel is ok, didn't get offered welcome points when checked, but a beverage voucher instead. check in was speedy. Booked the room without breakfast, so don't know how good is, but for RMB 100+, it's a bit on expensive side.... The room is maintained ok, carpet is clean and nothing in minibar. Everything else is pretty much to IHC standard, except it can upgrade sound proof (two ear buds instead by your bed) and should separate none-smoking floor from smoking floor, I mean you can smell the smoke from your bathroom, sharing the same pipe I guess. Fitness center is basic, just some light workout is ok. Swimming pool likes nice, but didn't get to use it. There is a convenient store on the ground floor, KFC/McDonald all within 100m. Wifi is not too stable, speed is so so. Only one Star movie channel for English movie.

Hi, We have stayed in this hotel during our Business trip to China in early November 2017. The hotel location is just crazy awesome as it's in the heart of Shanghai, major two malls are just 5 minutes walking so nice for daily hang out. It's just few minutes drive away from shanghai hongqiao airport so be ready to see airplane every 5 minutes but its really disturbing. The infrastructure is huge and interiors are good but the room in which we stayed (delux) is just okay and overpriced so better to look some other hotel in this range but I will still say the location is just awesome.

good location, good breakfast and friendly staff, rooms and overall OK, gym can be upgraded, it is a hotel to stay a couple of days, good price value and I will stay again, not the most fancy hotel - but relaxed and convenient!
