I visited Shanghai with my husband for business matters and we stayed at Central Shanghai hotel for three nights on the 13th floor. I chose this hotel because of the good travelers’ reviews combined with its good price. Now I can say that it is a really good hotel, well situated exactly as the other travelers has mentioned.
You could buy tickets for the 24 hours city sightseeing bus inside the hotel and pick up this bus just around the corner. There was a very good information computerized desk giving you all the details you needed (for example how much you should pay to a taxi). A taxi was always waiting outside the hotel.
Breakfast was rich and it had various tastes for everyone.
Sauna was included in the price, but the men’s sauna was more complete than the woman’s. Maybe this happened because we wanted to do sauna at the same time and they had to separate us.
Rooms were very well equipped and staff was polite (there was even an iron in the wardrobe, but also the laundry service was a good one). The only negative for us was the very big head pillows.
Communication with Chinese people was very difficult because of their Chinese accent in English and we lost valuable time to understand each other.
Also, although the surrounded hotel district was full of life during the day, at night it was a bit dangerous to circulate alone. All shops closed at 10:00 pm and then you could not find anything else, not even for a drink, but only homeless people sleeping on the benches.
I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Good value for money.
