Hello,

Does anyone know anything about a hotel at PVG called "Dazhong Merrylin", very recently opened according to chinadaily.com. Has anyone been there, seen it, have a telephone number or web address etc. There seems to be very little info.

Thankyou

Hi bobo9,

This is what I have gathered so far:

The hotel itself is being branded and marketed as Motel 168 of Dazhong Airport (Pudong), it offers 14 room types (9 room types are various types normally seen at other Motel 168s in Shanghai, the other 5 are similar to the rooms offered by Merrylin"s Ease Hotels - which are slightly more upmarket than the Motel 168). I was being told that their original plan was to have two hotels under Merrylin brands - Motel 168 and Ease Hotel - but in order to avoid confusion to customers and others, they have decided to only use the Motel 168 brand for now while people can book all 14 room types via Motel 168"s website (http://www.motel168.com) or reservation hotline at 10102020.

Last time I checked the publish rates for this new hotel range from RMB338 to RMB788 with so-called "Motel 168" rooms at between RMB338 and RMB398 while the "Ease Hotel" room rates range between RMB458 and RMB 788. These rates normally apply to "walk-up customers" (means someone just come in and ask at the front desk for a room without advanced reservation). If you book through Motel 168"s website or reservation hotline, the rates you will get are normally RMB10-RMB80 cheaper depending on actual room type etc.

I have yet to stay at the place, so cannot comment on the actual facilities. However, will report here if I do stay there in the future. Also, cannot find any photos so far.

Cheers.

Seriously I cannot see how it is justified for them to charge almost 800 yuan per night for their best rooms when you can get much better value at several other nearby hotels (maybe 5 minutes in a hotel shuttle from the airport terminal) - Simply because they are linked to both terminals via walkway so they think they can get away with rip-offs?

Was there 10 Apr 2010 for 10 hours as flight was 30mins passed midnight. Y398 on 3rd Floor. Good clean & comfortable for 4 Adults to rest, shower, Nap & relax for just 10 hours to flight. Easy access for flight connection & fast trip in 8 mins to Longyang via Maglev. Recommended.

Thanks for sharing your experience here, although I am still yet to try it out myself, but will give it a go if I am ever going to have a few-hour-transit at Pudong airport in Shanghai.

Cheers mate.
