The hotel is right is the middle of Nanjing East Road and placed at the middle point between Nanjing East Road station and People's Square station. Both stations take under 10 minutes by walk which gave us access to 4 subway lines. (Line 1, 2, 8, 10). The only time we took the taxi for our convenience was when we... More

For a short visit to the city of Shanghai, the Grand Central Hotel offers more than what is needed! The Bund is 15 minutes walk away and Nanjing road is not even five minutes away, basically across the road and perfect for those who want to go shopping! The room was very neat and kept in top condition, offering everything... More

A lot of good things have been said about this hotel, which I agree with and won't repeat here. I'll add a couple of extra comments: Breakfast - buffet with good choice of Chinese and western dishes. My teenage kids were also OK with the choices including Danish and bread. Coffee is good and strong, brewed in espresso machines using... More

I stayed at the Grand Central Hotel Shanghai for 4 nights in May. The location cannot be beat, with Nanjing Road just around the corner and the bund an easy 10 minute walk. The hotel lobby in itself is beautiful and really is grand. The rooms are very spacious with a big bathroom and and old world luxurious feel. I... More

I had stayed in the hotel over the road from this one several times before without realising that the Grand Central was as it is, the entry is quite but once you enter it opens out as a grand lady of Shanghai, definitely 5 star while not new it is well maintained and great value for money. The rooms are... More

my Mom and I stayed as part of a group of 82 Non Chinese speaking Americans. Everyone took a little extra time to assist us with every need. Breakfast was delicious and our room was lovely. I really enjoyed the view from our room and after a long day of sightseeing the shower was exhilarating.

The decor of the room and the hotel were beautiful! I liked everything about it! Didn't get a chance to eat there but had some fresh cake which was lovely. The room was huge and the bathroom with the waterfall shower separate was equisite. I even used the gym which was clean and well equipped. Would definitely stay here again... More
