The hotel looked beautiful in the main areas but the room reeked of mildew and the shower was covered in mold! The room was also very small. This hotel also does not have a taxi/car service. They will get a taxi for you but no personal car service. On a plus note it is a very short walk to Nanjing... More

We spent 5 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a Deluxe room which was really spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts were extensive and freshly cooked. The hotel is literally 100 meters from the walking precent on Nanjing Road. It takes about 20 minutes walk to get down to the Bund. We would stay here again.

This hotel gives the best value of money we paid. Can't think any flaw in the room amenities and service. It was summer and the aircon worked properly. Wifi is available, although the speed is just moderate. Staff speaks fluent English. When I asked the concierge staff to help me buying the train ticket. He politely informed me that ticket... More

Had an excellent stay at Central Hotel. The hotel is very clean. It provides very good service along with all amenities at a very reasonable price. The breakfast buffet is highly recommended. Great location if you want and need to be Nanjinglu. You will not be disappointed with a night or two at Central Hotel.

Stayed there for a night in March 2015 for business. Excellent location, very central. Service was friendly and helpful. Rooms were really spacious, huge! Wifi worked on and off. Nothing to complain, worth the money.

The hotel has a very good location. The metro is nearby. There are many cafes and shops around. You can easily get to the embankment, 10-15 min walking distance. Rooms are nice with big windows and great view on the city (from upper floors).

Right in the heart of the Nanjing Lu Pedestrian Mall, which does come with the issue of peddlers ready and waiting for you once you leave the hotel premises, particularly at night. A several minute easy walk to the subway, in between two stations. Hotel appears renovated since my last stay a few years ago, which was a welcome surprise.... More

Stayed at this hotel as part of a tour and found the hotel rooms very comfortable and large in size with a very nice decore. The breakfast was good with a large selection of western and Asian foods. Found most staff could speak some English, desk staff and concierge spoke very good English. We arrived a couple of days early... More

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
