Located one street away from the shopping strip of Jiujang Road. Excellent location for shopping, walking to the Bund and also access to the Metro rail. A little dated in appearance, however our room was excellent. Great size, very modern with a big luxurious bathroom. All amenities you could possibly want are supplied. Air-conditioned but also had windows that opened.... More

We stayed for 3 nights prior to joining a conference in Pudong / Century Park area. This hotel is very well located - about 200m to nearest metro station, or a bit further to the man People's Square station. We taxied from the airport, approximately 50min. It's cheaper by metro (depending if you take that MagLev), but the metro does... More

Fantastic location for Nanjing Road shopping and 15 minute walk to Bund. Room was spacious and bed was huge, wider than it was long and amazing overhead shower. Complimentary bottles of water in room daily was appreciated.

Great business hotel and location is excellent just off Nanjing Road which is a shopping belt. Beware of touts though. Room is surprisingly comfortable and modern for a local hotel though the breakfast i feel is lacking. Lobby looks somewhat dated and mediocre and sparse. For a better experience, perhaps you can try the classier sister hotel - The Grand... More

Stayed for 3 nights on our first visit to Shanghai, in which we wanted to see the main city sights and relax. The hotel location is very good in terms of being walking distance to The Bund for skyline views, People's Square/Park, and is one street parallel to the Walking Street, so there is a lot available within a short...

The hotel is welll located near The Bund & shopping street. The room is clean & beautiful with good furniture. The service is good also. Breakfast is not outstanding but ok. At night, you should visit the Bund, it becomes very beautiful at night. The foods are very diversify around this area

Stayed here 2 separate times in September 2013. Hotel was very well maintained. Rooms were clean and comfortable. There's no smell of smoke. For the 2nd stay, the room was smaller than the first, but still adequate. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Had Chinese dinner here one night and the food was very good. The location is the best feature of... More

We were in Shanghai for a holiday and we stayed at Central Hotel which was selected based on its on-going reviews in TripAdvisor. Checking in was easy and the receptionist on duty spoke reasonable good English. Our room was on the 14th floor with a view. I should commend the hotel for a very clean room with hardly any dust....

We stayed for two days in this hotel as a couple in June 2014. We reached at 1:30 AM in the night due to a delayed flight. Even at that hour, check in was very quick and efficient. The person at the front desk who checked us in was extremely courteous. Our room was on the 21st floor, so we... More
