Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 October 2012

We stayed in the Grand Central Hotel on our honeymoon. The lobby is beautiful - very impressive!
Our room was fabulous! It was huge! Lovely bathroom, spotlessly clean, good choice of cable tv channels and a great view. The location is excellent right in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Shanghai and a short stroll from The Bund. Staff were very nice and friendly especially the doormen. Overall we had a lovely stay in this excellent hotel and would highly recommend it.

This hotel is perfect for me because the hotel is very very beautiful and hotel location is awesome!! (Near the Nanjing road : just across the street , Near metro station : you can go anywhere easily, Near people square : 10mins walk and you can go to the bund by walk also). Moreover, the price is not too expensive. All of staffs speak English well because this hotel is international hotel. The weak point is just the staff didn't smile much.

The hotel is located close to the famous Nanjing Road. Lobby is very impressive, however, like other reviews here, front desk service is poor. We requested for an extension of two hours but were refused. Room upgrade was also not for us.....( maybe there is some discrimination)
Rooms are nice and pleasant, cleanliness also very good.

Hotel is located right downtown of Shanghai, NanJing Lu is just parallel with this JuiJiang Lu. Superb Location. However, the most disappointing is the front desk service, they don't care and don't bother about customer ,
Room very clean.

Stayed here twice in the last two weeks. The first time we had an excellent view over the Nanjing shopping mall. This is really interesting at night time with all the neon lights and the hive of activity. The second visit was overlooking a boring side of the hotel. Try to ask for the side that faces Najing Road.

The room are fantastic; spacious and very comfortable. Bedding is high quality and guarantees a good night sleep. The bathroom was good and reasonably clean.

The lobby and sitting area is excellent. They have a grand piano playing most of the time.

All staff I met spoke english so communication was easy.

The hotel is a 2 minute walk to the shopping in Nanjing Rd and about a 10 minute walk to the waterfront at the Bund.

I would recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

Arriving from airport I would recommend the maglev train and then taxi for the remainder.

My husband and I have been to Shanghai in September for 4 days, and stayed at the Grand Central . The hotel is 3 minutes walking to Nanjing LU , the famous pedestrian street of Shanghai, and close to the Bund, and many other atractions ! Rooms are very well decorated, and breakfast is good, although overpriced , considering mostly the small variety of fruits and the juices that were not so good ! The lobby is amazing, and it is very nice when one come to the hotel after a long day !!

This is an excellent hotel, just next to Nanjing Road without the noise... BIG and comfortable rooms, lots of amenities, excellent breakfast buffet, friendly service, close to many good restaurants and stores. Almost midway between the Fund and People's Park. In summary: Great value!

Room Tip: Rooms facing Nanjing road allow you to see the night lights of this exciting pedestrian way without...
