It's a scam,we arrived late night,took a taxi and we couldn't find the hotel,in the place it was supposed to be,there was anything,no building,no other info,we tried to find the number on internet but no number results at this hotel..They rip us off and left in the middle of the street tho the night in shanghai.Bad experience ,hope they will pay for this
Better than expectations. Great shuttle service to and from airport. (request in advance and ask at information to find pickup location). Staff did not speak English and used a electronic translator. I had no problem communicating. Great place to stay for a long layover in Shanghai. Nice rooms and beds with cable TV. Nice view from our window. Many great places to eat on the same block, also a local convenience store. Chinese breakfast and tea were included. Well taken care of fish tank at the top of the stairs. Lots of original starving artist style paintings. Lots of rubble along the street. Find out why by googling it and you will understand why. I enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and eating at the local restaurants.
As a solo female traveler, I feel this place is very safe to stay for airport layover. I paid $24.99 with this price including one night accommodation, Chinese breakfast and airport pickup and drop off services. This hotel is also good known to airport staff who works at the information desk, which strengthens its reliability. According to them, they commented this hotel is a good and safe place to stay. To my understanding, this hotel also offers free pickup and drop off services to locate their customers to the nearest metro station and Disneyland. I love their breakfast, as it includes my most favorite Chinese ham fried rice. You can see the picture. This hotel is located to a suburban area closer to the airport (for 10 minutes drive through highway), and is next to several Chinese restaurants and the village committee building. It is located in a very regular and normal Chinese street in Shanghai. If you would like to go see a local street in Shanghai, this is a good place. This hotel is a two-story building, and there is no elevator. However, you can lock up your luggage in the hall area and let the staff look at them for you, or the staff can also help you carry the luggage to your room. There is a second lock for the inside of the room.
I expected little from this hotel and really only needed a bed to lay in before my connecting flight the following morning but I was pleasantly surprised. The neighbourhood isn't pretty but I didn't feel unsafe either, I had no problems with the free shuttle bus from Pudong airport and the staff seemed friendly enough. I've absolutely no complaints for the money it cost to stay here. One of the best things about this hotel was the cleanliness of the rooms. All credit to the cleaning staff!
So, we (a friend and I) arrived a bit past 9pm, and wanted to check in, for our 1-night stay before leaving China the day after. Unfortunately we were told that we didn't meet for our reservation, which they claimed was only a 4-hour reservation, even though our booking confirmation very clearly said October 22 (after 08:00 AM) until October 23 (before 12:00 PM). So they required us to pay for the reservation we didn't meet for as well as a new reservation for the night (the original reservation was only about 60Yuan, and we just wanted a room, so we didn't start a big hassle). Problem was that they were overbooked. (We met a Chinese woman in the reception whose booking they hadn't denied, but still didn't have room for, so they were not just fully booked - they were overbooked). The result was that we got in one of their vans and drove to another hotel. First, we had to pick up another of their customers at the airport though, which resulted in us driving around for about 50 minutes before we got to the next hotel (mind you, it was pouring down big time, so we were all wet and cold in that car). The optimal solution would have been to pick us up in separate cars, so I get the impression that the people running Changchunyuan don't even have the resources required to handle overbooking properly. They drove us to "Super 8 Hotel", which I should honestly do a good review on, because they got us all (and other customers) through reception really fast, and we got good rooms for the original price that it would have costed us to rent a room at Changchunyuan hotel. Ultimately we ended up getting our room a bit past 11pm. I should probably give Changchunyuan the worst rating, but I feel like my review should portray that they at the very least got us another hotel booking, at a better place, without us having to go very far outside while the rain was pouring down.
Like others have mentioned airport pickup was a nightmare, I was in Shanghai airport for about an hour trying to find the pick up location/arrangements They speak very little English at the hotel and so Google translate is your best friend. The neighbourhood is not great, very working class area and so many travellers may not like/be used to it, it's quite a walk to the train station or you can get a taxi, also coming back you can negotiate significantly more on taxi fares from the station Room itself had no view, seemed blocked off from some sort of work they were doing. The room was very good size, was clean as too was the bathroom, have no complaints about the room. Overall would not recommend due to the ineffectiveness of the airport pickup service which is one of the main attractions of the hotel, also it is too far from the train station
Hotel is located in a very dirty and local neighborhood. Check-In was smooth but slow as the staff don't speak English at all. No lift so had to carry all the luggage over stairs. Rooms are extremely small and bathroom is very congested and smelly. Beware of mosquitoes. There are a lot of them. No English channels in TV. Wi-Fi is free and adequate. They assured free airport pick-up and drop but check the service timings. It is not 24 hours. We ended up paying RMB50 for one way trip to airport in a private car arranged by the hotel. They don't give a receipt. It took me around 20 minutes to reach the airport at 4am. Will not dare stay again
The hotel or to be more accurate, a motel (shoplots) is close to the airport and they do offer free airport transfer. However, if you reach the airport after 12am, you will have to go to the hotel on your own. We did call the hotel upon arrival but we were asked to take the taxi ourselves instead as they claim that airport transfer is only available until 12am. The bed is a bit hard and it was ok for us since we were here for only 1 day. We took the breakfast in the hotel which cost us RMB15 as we were rushing for 9am airport transfer (latest in the morning, else you will have to wait until 12pm). There were quite number of choices of food but do not put high expectation on the taste. If you are not in a rush, there is a few eateries nearby.
The hotel itself is pretty good, new and large rooms quite confortable. The real downside was the pick up service from the airport. English skills of the staff is very poor therefore when i called from the airport to request the pick up it was very difficult to communicate. I had to call twice and waited for more than 1 hour for the shuttle bus to come. Wifi really sketchy.
All hotels make mistakes....including this one. I booked a room for a very late night arrival. My flight was delayed in Manila. I made several calls to them from the airport in Manila, advising my flight would be late. Their English was fair for Chinese, but they understood. Upon arriving Shanghai airport, I called them and the person said....no rooms...I became annoyed since it was 3 am, and they knew my name. I raised my voice and asked for mgmt, but then told...ok..you can come. I asked them to send a pick-up and they said no. When one travels in China, not many speak or understand English, westerners can use a little help, this group was no help. I never got to the hotel to rate the room, but that is their fault
