    Old hotel with spacious room
    It's location is as good as nearby Sofitel and Central Shanghai. Its room are spacious but in need of an upgrade. It's pricing is reasonable. The only big minus is the smell of cigarettes smoke in the hotel lobby left behind by the hotel's taxi drivers during the wee hours of the morning.

    Guxiang Hotel Shanghai (Howard Johnson Plaza) - Shanghai
    Locally-managed hotel with good location.
    It was managed by Howard Johnson Group until recently the hotel was transferred to the local party, GuXiang Group. Hence, naturally you should expect some differences in the running of its operation. The hotel's taxi drivers regularly smoke in the hotel lobby in the wee hours of the morning. Checking out in the early morning before sunrise, one is usually confronted with cigarettes smell in the hotel lobby, when you are waiting at the front counter to process your checking out. The room is pretty sizable, location is similarly attractive as Sofitel, which is located on Nanjing Road.

    Very Good8.0
    The bed was comfortable, however we felt that there should be a change in their carpet and toilet area. Looks abit old for a 5 star hotel. Overall was fine, the room was brightly lited up. Room service was good too.

    Rooms Need Update
    The hotel is old, and need upgrade. During our stay the aircon had some issue and was not able to reduce the temp of the room. Internet was slow. Location was great, easy accessibility.
