We had a wonderful vacation but the hotel was a bit of a let-down. I'm quite sure that the hotel would receive bad reviews if it weren't for the great location (between East Nanjing Lu and People's Square) Unfortunately I get the feeling that because the location is good the customer service suffers. There are some more helpful staff but... More

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
