The transportation is very convenient but you need to leave enough time for the connection if you have to take a train on the same day.
Take subway line 2, it takes nearly 2 hours. The cost is CNY8 per person.
Airport shuttle bus line 1, also takes about 2 hours something, CNY34 per person.
Take the maglev train and then change to metro line 2 at Longyang Road station, it takes 1.5 hour at the cost of CNY56 per person.
Taxi takes about 70 minutes at the cost of CNY220 per ride.

I know they have this service at railway station but I do not know where the office is? You can try the police office or information desk on B1 floor.

Is this Mercure Shanghai Hongqiao Airport in walking distance?
Or do we still need to take shuttle bus or taxi to get to the hotel?
Answers (1)
Answered by Jessie from AUSTRALIA | Jul. 31, 2019 18:04

The distance is not suitable for walking, it is about 7km. You need taxi instead. Or you can use metro line 10 to Hongqiao T1. The hotel is only about 100m away from the T1 metro station.
