Jinjiang Inn. 锦江之星 Aimed squarely at the businessperson on a budget, the undoubted advantage of this admittedly bland Jinjiang Inn branch is the fabulous location. Sights lie at all four points of the compass, as it's in walking distance of the Old Town, the Bund, People's Square, East Nanjing Rd and the French Concession. Facilities in the hotel are meagre and the cheapest rooms are purely functional with water heater/cooler but no wardrobe. Typical of the Chinese-managed budget market, staff can seem awkward with foreign guests, and the usual paltry English is at hand to sow confusion, but otherwise cost-conscious travellers should have little reason to grumble. Address: No.33 Fujian Rd.(S) Tel: 021-63260505 Reservation Hotline: 400-820-9999. Online Reservation: www.jinjianginns.com
Motel 168. 莫泰168. Large budget chain within China. Twelve locations throughout Shanghai. Very simple, small, and sparsely furnished, but you can get private double rooms from 168 RMB. These properties are fairly new, and thus clean. You can book rooms in advance online. Family style rooms are also available in some properties, and they feature bunk beds, which may be useful if you're traveling in a group. Many properties feature their MerryLin restaurant/cafe, which offers decent fare at reasonable prices. This chain is fairly popular with domestic travelers within China. Knowledge of Chinese is recommended as the staff are not always well-equipped to communicate in English. Tel: (Toll-free) 4008207168
