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

The first days of our holiday got off to a great start. Both the hotel and Shanghai exceeded our expectations.The location next to the pedestrian only precent between the people's square, museum and the Bund was perfect. The only minor setback was the lack of WiFi in the hotel and lack of temperature control in the room

Took the Maglev and then Metro line 2 to East Nanjing Road, walked some 300 mtrs down the ever-crowded pedestrianised Nanjing Road to Jiujiang Rd and saw the hotel to my left. The reason for mentioning this is two-fold, 1. The ease with which one can leave Pudong airport and travel into the city via the super-fast Maglev train and... More

Value with big room and excellent location, good service though the room a little old fashion. Watch out for the 1L EVAN bottle water is not free and will cost you RMB 81, the most expensive water ever had.

The Central Hotel is a good business hotel with good, clean rooms, attentive staff and a good concierge's desk. Where it scores well above average is in location: it is one street away from the major shopping street of East Nanjing Road, very close to People's Square and the museums there, a short walk from the Bund, and a very...
