This is a good place to stay in Shanghai. The location is in the center of the city, only a walking distance away to the People Square and Nanjing Road where all the shops and malls are located. The hotel itself has nice comfortable rooms. Amenities are complete as well. They only have tea selections in the room but no... More

Ten minute walk to the Bund, five to the metro and two minutes from nice restaurants and cafes. The square opposite the hotel had individuals and groups doing their early morning meditation, dancing, exercises etc which was fascinating to watch. I forgot to bring an adapter which turned out not to be a problem. Rang housekeeping and got one delivered... More

The Central Hotel is in a really great location close to nanjing road and the Bund. Within two minutes you are in Nanjing Road with all its shops and restaurants. Within 15 minutes you can reach the Bund and Yuyuan Gardens within 30 minutes. If you do not want to walk the metro system is excellent and very cheap. The... More

Loved the Central! In this hotel our room was on the 27th floor. The night lights of Shanghai are amazing so it is a special bonus to be up high. Our room didn't have a shower room as did the rooms on lower floors, not sure why...maybe they were renovating and started on lithe lower floors. We walked out to... More

Room was comfortable, well-appointed and generally good. Value was there as was the location close to both the East Nanjing Road and People's Square metro stations. Great access to Nanjing. Breakfast was pretty good and about 50/50 western vs eastern staples. Good staff with attentive restaurant and front desk people

The Central Hotel in Shanghai is in a great location...Block off East Nanjing Rd and two blocks from subway. Staff was english friendly. Did not eat in hotel but menu looked great. Room was outstanding. Great bed and work desk. Very clean. And a good view. Would consider staying again!

This was our first hotel upon arriving in China and overall, we were quite happy with everything. The rooms are a good size, clean and tidy and quite modern. The beds are hard (as in most Asian hotels), but I like that. Service was not exemplary, but efficient and helpful. Breakfast was good overall with plenty of choices (both Western... More
