This hotel is located one block from the pedestrian street that is full of places to shop and if you walk west, you come to Peoples square/park where you can relax and walk through the gardens. If you walk east, you will get to the Bund and the river promenade. Across the Huang Po river are more tall buildings and... More

Well appointed room which was spacious. The bed was quite comfortable. Location is central (Najing Street is right across the road and the Bund is 15 minutes walk). Staff was a bit on the aloof side. I went to the buffet in the main lobby twice ... breakfast was good ... dinner wasn't!

My boyfriend and I actually stayed their in august 2012. The rooms were really great: the bed was so soft, huge and amazing! We flew 12 hours straight and after checking in, slept around 16 hours long. Really great staff. The hotel is located downtown and near one of the most famous tourist streets in that area. You truly get... More

I stayed at the Grand Central Hotel Shanghai March 31-April 5, 2014 with 4 other friends and everyone of us loved the hotel. I am a travel agent and did lots of research on hotels in Shanghai and I will say I chose a great one. The employees are all very friendly and knowledgeable, the hotel has a beautiful big... More

For what it is worth you cannot say that it location sucks. It's as near as you can get the heart of the city and with that comes also the negative point as it is very noisy 24 hours a day. If you want a quality night's sleep, try to get a room away from the central road. The breakfast... More

Spent 3 nights here with our 2 boys in March. Boys asked if we were sure this was right hotel when we walked into lobby, they thought it looked to fancy for us! Rooms were beautiful with very large, well appointed bathrooms. Staff were all very accommodating, they smiled when they saw our boys roller skating around lobby!! Pool /... More

Only stayed one night, but wish it had been longer. Fantastic location, friendly staff, comfortable room. Swimming pool and health area was fine. I didn't eat in the hotel, but there was no shortage of small restaurants in the area. No complaints at all.

Great location, rooms very large and beautifully furnished. Foyer grand and welcoming. Wifi very very slow. Air-conditioning in rooms poor, need to open window for ventilation and then exposed to the car horns and jack hammers below. French restaurant on level two was a desolate space and could not offer any white wine in a five star hotel. Often need... More

I cannot tell you how much we loved this hotel. It was a perfect ending to our China trip and we chose well. The lobby is beautiful, the room and bathroom luxurious, and the included breakfast buffet was inspiring. The fruit and fruit plates were kept in a cooler display case along with various cheeses. The display of food options... More
