Grand Central Hotel Shanghai
Ranked #61 of 5,222 Hotels in Shanghai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 March 2012

Very convenient location, excellent service.
The breakfast was ok, if not quite top notch.

Very nice rooms, decent free (wired) internet connection. The hotel service was good, and the burned fuse for my room was changed within minutes of discovery.

Complimentary shoe shining was a nice touch.

Some of the hotel information was a bit vague, for example the breakfast opening hours were a bit unclear.

This hotel was amazing. We loved it and it had great facilities, great location. It was walking distance from the bund. It was clean and had amazing views of the bund (we were on quite a high floor). It had a great range of food from chinese to western and staff were very friendly. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a hotel in Shanghai. It was perfect!

If we could give it more stars we would! From the minute you step into the glassed foyer you are pampered - you can't open a door yourself as all are staffed by the friendliest people with the biggest smiles who can't wait to open the door for you. Don't even think about pushing a button for the elevator yourself as a staff member is racing to beat you to it LOL!! Absoultely beautiful hotel, so close to everything, over helpful staff - western hotels should have a look because even if their service was 25% of Grand Central's then they would have learnt something about valuing their customers as well as their staff. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND

The location is excellent because it's close to Metro(Subway) and Nanjing Rd. We booked a non-smoking room and it was spacious and clean. There are a lot of restaurants, shops and also the Bund is within walking distance. The hotel staff are very friendly with ok english speaking skills. Overall, a very comfortable stay in a nice enviroment...would stay at this hotel again next visit to Shanghai.
