this is our second time staying at the Grand central hotel, and we were not dissapointed. We stayed for two nights, and as usual the price for our twin share room was very affordable, the rooms were clean and spacious, and the beds and sheets were very comfortable providing us the perfect place to rest following an exhausting 14 hour flight from london.
The hotel is located right next to the nanjing road shopping district, thus giving you all the restaurants and shopping one needs right at your door step, its a 15min walk to the bund, 8min walk to a metro station, and a quick 10min in taxi to the famous french concession and god's temple area. What more can one ask for in terms of convenience.
One little issue we had with the hotel this time was that our air-conditioning was not on during our first night of stay at the hotel, and this made the room quite hot and uncomfortable at night. When we ask reception about this, they had told us that because november is winter in shanghai, they usually do not turn on their air-conditioning systems.
However when we made a complaint about this, pointing out that it was very hot and stuffy in the rooms to the extent that we can't sleep comfortably, a serviceman was immediately sent to check out the situation, and the air-con in our room was promptly switch back on. Thus our problem was delt with quickly.
Would definitely recommend and stay here again if i ever visit shanghai in the future
