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

Our first time in China. Hotel was well located next to the pedestrian mall, our room was very spacious and the bed comfortable. We had a separate bedroom area, extra seating and a work table, which is great if you're on business or want to catch up on emails. Free wifi, and breakfast included in our package;plenty of choices and... More

Stayed there for three days for business. Location is great for leisure purposes and also close to my offices that I did visit. What I was missing was service attitude by the staff - not very knowledgable or attentive. Breakfast was ok but nothing extraordinary.

I've been using Central Hotel on my business trips for years, guess something like 10 years. Last time was really the last time; saw a 10 inch rat running accross the kitchen floor on 2nd floor breakfast restaurant. This is just what you can't accept from the hotel, say plus 2 stars. Pity that my mobile was in the room... More

My husband and I had a very pleasant & enjoyable stay for three nights at this hotel. Checkin was fast and professional. Room and bathroom were modern, clean with good amenities. Had a nice breakfast each morning with lots of choice from the buffet. Internet wasn't too good in the room so went online downstairs in the lobby. Very close... More

We stayed here for a few nights in May 15. The hotel is well maintained with modern rooms of good quality. The services were all excellent. The staff are very professional and most helpful. The hotel looks a bit dated these days but the accommodation is good, the hotel is right at the centre of the shopping mall and only... 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.
