Shanghai was a surprise as a city. It will be also a surprise as hosting people if you stay at Grand Central Hotel Shanghai .

The location is simply perfect. Close to the pedestrian street, few steps from good restaurants, many souvenir shops around and an amazing staff that, even not speaking fluent English, was always trying to help you with all your needs.

The concierge service was also very good. We bought tickets for the Kaleido show and he managed a taxi to take us there. There was a king of misunderstood about the taxi fare to the airport and I paid three times more than my sister and brother-in-law who were travelling with me and wife.

Anyway, I’m not sure who had done the mistake. A pity! I prefer to think that it was about the honesty of the taxi driver who preferred to receive the money than to warn me about the error. Anyway it hasn’t hurt the image of the hotel.

The breakfast was more fixed on oriental taste but you should find many choices for the occidental ones. The lobby was charming and there was a lounge service to rest and have a drink after browsing around Shanghai the whole day.

The room got my golden star for the hotel. Beautiful is the least I should say about it. Full of details that made our stay in a high standard. The bathroom door has a trick that allows us to close the washroom or the whole bathroom – you choose.

The evening service provides two chocolate candies and a card with the tomorrow’s weather forecast which was awesome. Even the feet sleepers were provided beside the bed. The treatment of a king. Congratulations to the hotel. I am willing to stay at the hotel again.

It is a convenient place which is very close to Nanjing road. The very first impression of the front office staff was not good. but the front office manager is really attentive and helpful for us.
A lady who was at the front office was very discriminating. Never experience such a situation at a five star hotel.
The rooms are really good and food is nice. The Location is Good for business or leisure .
You have to wait long time for taxis. so better be prepared early!

Room Tip: executive rooms are very good and have lots of space.

Excellent gym and swimming pool. Breakfast was very good with lot of options. The rooms were very good and spacious. Could not expect anything more.

Had a lovely stay. Will definitely stay here again.

Fabulous location, 2 minutes from the main shopping and eating areas. Clean, spacious, rooms with all the necessary services for a City visit. Staff spoke enough English to enable us to get the service we needed. Great value. Wonderful pool and spa.

Room Tip: Ensure you get a room with City Views.

Great hotel in the heart of Shanghai.
Has all the extra's neeeded to make a great stay special.
The location in the very centre of Shanghai means you can walk and shop happily.
Many western food choices nearby means all tastes are catered for.
We paid under 100 pounds for a great room, would happily stay again.
