The location and facilities of this hotel are great, that's why it's realy a pity that the feeling of a great vacation was ruined in both times we stayed at this hotel by a lack of service oriented attitude we encountered at the reception desk and from one of the concierge staff. There are so many hotels in this beautiful... More

We had our wedding in the Grand Central Hotel Shanghai, it was absolutely perfect! the venue was exquisite. The wedding suite the hotel assigned us was huge, it had a large living room, large bedroom, as well as a large bathroom (including a bathtub and shower stall). The staff decorated the room to fit the occasion. This hotel has a... More

I like staying in the Grand Central Hotel when I visit Shanghai because it's in a super convenient location and feels like you're actually in China, when compared to some of the more 'Western' options. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, but it's the huge bathrooms, with two sinks, large walk-in showers with monsoon and regular shower head and a... More

We stayed two nights in this fantastic Hotel in Shanghai (it was our second stay) and we will definitely come back again! The Hotel is a five to ten minute walk away from the Bund, very near to East Nanjing Road (Metro Station) with lots of restaurants, ATMs and shopping possibilities (Luxury Brands, Starbucks, a Haagen Dasz Cafe, Apple Store,...

Our stay in China ended in Shanghai and this hotel was fantastic. The beds were so comfortable and the luxury of having a toilet separated from the shower area by a door was terrific. Smokers have their own separate area which is far away form the other dining areas, making it comfortable to people who loathe the stench of cigarette... More

My family spent two nights at this hotel in December. We arrived too early to check in on the first day so we left our luggage there and headed out for the day. The hotel is situated only a short walk to the Bund and within steps of a great pedestrian shopping street featuring lots of restaurants, ATMs and people... More

My wife and me were here for 1 night only in early November 2014. We were catching a next night flight back for home. Arrived in evening from a decently long journey from the train station where the bullet train from Beijing arrived. This helped us to see some of the city too. Very central hotel. Pretty luxurious. Grand lobby... More

This local branded hotel can certainly challenge the international brand names. Location is a pretty good being close to People's square, museums, shops and bund. This property if the higher end property compared to its sister hotel next door. I believe they are under the same owner. The room is beautiful and luxurious. Housekeeping did a great job keeping the... More

The location of the hotel is very good, close to important tourist sites like the Bund and Nanjing Road shopping street. This is its biggest selling point. The hotel room itself is pretty spacious. Decor and furniture has a bit of an Old Shanghai theme to it, which is pretty nice. What I did not like is its overzealous central... More

I just spent four nights in this hotel was absolutely amazed at how good it was. The reception area was spacious with very little waiting time, the buffet breakfast was huge and the buffet dinner even bigger. I was on business here and spent plenty of time at the restaurants waiting for suppliers. The gym and pool had enough equipment... More
