Pudong International Airport (PVG) is the major airport in Shanghai and is located some 30 KM (18.5 miles) from the CBD of Shanghai. Shanghai also has another airport on the other side of the city which caters to mostly domestic flights see here for a list of Hongqiao Airport Hotels.
There are several hotels near the airport, and most have their own shuttle services. Here I have listed the top-rated hotels that are close to the airport excluding ones that consistently receive poor reviews. These hotels are also comfortable accepting foreign guests, be warned, some hotels are mainland Chinese guests only.
The Ramada is the closest to the airport, and a top pick, the rest are within 10km and a few that are about mid-way between the city and the airport.
