There are two major airports in Shanghai being Hongqiao (SHA) and Pudong (PVG) which are on opposite sides of the city center. Hongqiao airport is located about 13 kilometers (about 8 miles) from the CBD and handles mostly domestic flights with Pudong handling the bulk of international flights. See here for more info about the two airports and transfer options.
In this list, I have put together the top rated hotels in and near the Hongqiao Airport. I’ll start with a map and then list each one including value hotels, 4 and 5-star hotels. I have also noted the ones offering shuttle services. See here for a list of Pudong Airport Hotels.
It is a very convenient area for transport as it is connected by subway lines 2 and 10 (see metro map), Hongqiao Railway Station which has fast trains to Beijing, Nanjing, Hangzhou and other major cities. Adjacent to the railway station is the National Convention & Exhibition Center (NECC).
