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

This was one of the few hotels in China that we stayed at where everything worked & reception staff spoke good English. They were helpful, especially sorting out our mobile phones. Breakfasts were excellent, very comfortable beds & a large, well furnished room. The hotel was re-vamped about 4 years ago, but I think they missed putting double glazing into... More

Stayed here in October - just 3 nights - with a tour group. Good hotel in a convenient location just a few minutes walk from Nanjing Road. The room was large and well appointed, with everything you'd expect from an hotel of this quality. Large and comfortable bed, two TVs, impressive bathroom. As is normal, the hotel provided two complimentary... More

Just spent 4 nights and was very impressed. Location is awesome. A hop on hop off bus stop directly across the street, a small mini mart for water, soft drinks, snacks etc just across from the front and a minute stroll to Nanjing Road mall, the central shopping precinct of Shanghai. One evening this amazingly central location let us safely... More

The rooms and the common areas were impressively decorated with a lot of detail. The gym was well equipped with a nice view. The buffet had a great variety and although I did not sample more than my own "comfort food", I enjoyed what I had. Not to sound unadventurous...because I did branch out with a variety of foods for... More

Just returned from short stay. Room was great, very comfortable and everything you need. Hotel very well appointed. Cannot recommend restaurant, poor food and bad service in buffet, and expensive for what it was, we only ate there once. We treated ourselves to M on the Bund one night, very nice western cuisine but pricey, wonderful views over the Bund,... More

We loved our modern bedroom with three huge windows looking over the square. It was arranged like a suite with a sitting room and a separate bedroom area and a lovely bathroom. The position of the hotel is superb. The staff are helpful at reception and everywhere is very clean. The only problem was when we decided to eat there... More
