We just love this hotel. So much luxurious for such small money.
Perfect location near shopping street, bund, great restaurants, subway etc.
Great gym and swimming pool that we had for our self every morning. We would love to come back to this hotel.

This hotel is just what you need to relax. Great rooms, full luxury, impeccable service, great food, cleanliness and politeness at all times. A fantastic design that has hints of art deco. Shanghai is a crazy place and this hotel makes a great sanctuary. Highly recommended. I've stayed in many top class hotels touring around the world and this ranks with the best of the city ones.

Superb hotel, very grand and so luxurious. Loved it! Surprised how reasonable the price is for such a lovely hotel. Paid Australian$127 per night per room. Convenient location to Nanjing Rd shops, The Bund and restaurants.

Room Tip: Higher floor perhaps for a better view although I think any floor will probably be just great. Hubby...

Just one block off Nanjing Road. Fabulous Hotel. Did not get time to use all tha facilities but everything we seen was wonderful. The rooms were palacial. Breakfast maybe expensive but worth it. Would have no problem recommending this Hotel.

Dear readers, as I stay many times in Shanghai i ave tried many Hotels in uper class.
Grand Central Shanghai is for me as business traveller the most conveniant. Really central, on green metro line and not far from airport. All other major sight seeing spots are either on walking distance or easy reachable by metro.
I highly recomend this Hotel as the service is excellent and most important as business traveller check in and out are quickly done.( not always easy in China)

I stayed for 3 nights on business, though the hotel location close to the Bund and the Nanjin Road meant I was also able to fit in some shopping and tourism. I cannot think of anything negative to say about this hotel. The rooms are magnificent, the service was top notch and the price was very reasonable.

The hotel is strategically located near NanJing walking street and it takes 2 minutes to walk to the nearest subway station. Starbucks is around the corner. The room is spacious and it comes with comfortable bed and luxury bath room. The air cond. and ventilation system in the room are excellent, we felt relief spending our time in the room, escaping from the air pollution in ShangHai. Check in process is relatively quick. The receptionists are friendly (especially the two staffs: Samuel and Jerry). Also, we managed to stay at the same room for our 3 separate stays :) You may get a cab easily from the hotel. To Hong Qiao airport/train station is about RMB 60-70; while to Pu Dong Aiport would be less than RBM 200.

Room Tip: high floor
