As part of the ongoing upgrade of Pudong airport, there is now a new branch of Motel 168 open in the transportation centre, right next to the entrance of the Maglev station.
Double or Twin rooms are available, both at 348RMB per night. A little more than the chain usually charges
for couples rutting like beasts between filthy sheets, but not too shabby for a hotel bed within walking distance from an international airport (with a KFC just downstairs).
The hotel opened on Monday, just in time to take advantage of the delayed and cancelled flights due to the weather- when Shanghaiist called, all rooms were already fully booked.
Motel 168, Pudong Airport (tel: 10102020, English service available).
