We stayed for 3 nights in transit from Christchurch to London and the hotel choice was excellent. The location IS central! Close to the tourist buses, sights, restaurants and shops. The staff were also extremely helpful. We couldn't fault them.

best is to contact the hotel directly. I like this hotel because it is centrally located, near to Nanjing Lu (main shopping area) and room condition is great. Service very good.
