My wife, mother-in-law and sister-in-law stayed at the Best Western New Century. We booked this hotel based upon our experience with Best Western Hotels and the rating of the hotel. We were very disappointed. While the hotel has the potential to be a very good hotel and the staff is responsive, the hotel needs some serious capital investment. They only... More

Best Western New Century is a business hotel not-so-far from the Shanghai city centre. By metro it's convenient to travel and even by foot it's only few miles from the centre. Hotel itself is not very new and you can see that from the room and overall amenities. Service is what you expect in China, some english and no willigness... More

I recently concluded a 6-night stay at the New Century Hotel (Best Western), where myself and approximately 8 other people had a group booking as part of a study abroad course. The hotel is rated 4 star, but the accommodations I had in a private room at a hostel just the night before checking in here were far superior. I... More

Book the hotel in the last seconds. It's now under the Bestwestern brand, which is supposed to be a high-end luxury 4 star hotel in Shanghai (BW also have a couple of 5 star hotels in China). The price is not bad but through a friend's company. Walk in price would be twice as much. The location is pretty good.... More

After getting off the subway use exit #7, hotel will be almost directly across the street on the left. Entrance to hotel is down Li Yang road. The hot buffet breakfast was great with eastern and western... More

Arrived at hotel in the evening and walked into the lobby through a cloud of smoke. The people at the counter could speak little to no English. I asked where breakfast was and was directed with a point of a figure. We went up to our room and two lightbulbs were out and the shower was super tiny. The bed... More

We spent three nights in this hotel and we had a pleasant stay. The room was big and clean and was situated in one of the top floors of the hotel, so we had a great panoramic view. The breakfast in the morning was good and wide. The location of the hotel is about 30-40 minutes walking from downtown, and... More
