Can’t pick a shanghai Pudong airport transit hotel?

I have personally booked two transit hotels in China. Booking a shanghai Pudong airport transit hotel can be a bit stressful, as you may be concerned you could miss your flight by not getting back to the airport on time. I personally love the idea of a transit hotel, somewhere to refresh before your flight. But booking a reliable and affordable transit hotel is key!

Here is how you can transit at Shanghai airport seamlessly.

Get from arrivals to pick up

Both times I was asked to call my driver who told me where to go to get picked up. For this reason, we would suggest you have a phone that allows international calls.

The first time this happened, it went as planned, and the shuttle bus picked us up. But the second time, it didn’t, which takes us onto point two.

Have the correct details

The second time, we didn’t have the correct phone number, and we could not find the correct number online, which meant we had to get a taxi. Unfortunately, it took us about 4 taxies to find one that could read our address as it was in English characters. To avoid this, make sure you double-check the hotel’s phone number and ensure you have the hotel’s address translated into Chinese characters.

These will make your layover more comfortable

Withdraw money at the airport

Both airport hotels we stay at did not have ATMs. We needed money at the Shanghai Pudong airport transit hotel because we arrived at odd times when room service was not available, and we wanted to purchase meals and drinks from the vending machines. So, if you think this will be the case for you, kindly withdraw some money before leaving.

Book a hotel with return shuttle service

This is purely for ease. With one of the hotels I stayed at, they didn’t have a free airport shuttle service after 2:00 pm. I found this a little frustrating as our flight wasn’t until after 6:00 pm. This is definitely something that should be checked prior, especially if you have a late evening flight.
