The hotel decor is absolutely beautiful! It is a 5 star at a reasonable price. The location is central to most of the sites of Shanghai(awesome city). The staff is very helpful & service oriented. Workout facilities awesome(if that your thing). It is a large hotel at a very good price & location.

Stayed: December 2013

The main attraction of this hotel is that it's in a great location-only 10 minutes walk from the Bund and People's Square, and 5 from East Nanjing Road metro station.

Our room was a decent size and clean.

The hotel gym was well equipped but the pool was to cold to use.

The staff are very helpful, the facilities provide for all your needs and the various eateries mean that you need not leave .
The surrounding area is also a pleasure to explore, It is a quiet hotel does not seem to Shanghai. although other from the bustling city of Shanghai, furnishings, atmosphere is calm and much can not imagine.Highly recommended.

i have stayed in lux hotels all over the world though this hotel made me impress in so many ways.............location, value, staffs, amenity, etcetc.
i can only recommend this hotel to all my friends who may go to shanghai soon. i was particularly impressed with nice swimming pool & spa and the choice of so many different pillows!!!!!!
i guess i payed for 3 nights stay for the value of one night of other hotels i usually stay in nyc or dubai, etc. sooo nice:)

Choosing Grand Central Hotel Shanghai mainly due to its great location, just few minutes walk to Nanjing East MRT station (Exit 4) and the popular walkway along Nanjing East road is just across the street, and just 10-15mins walk to the Bund, it makes a great choice for me to stay in this pretty new Hotel.
Upon arrival, the big and spacious hotel lobby attracted my attention. Love the oval shaped structure hanging in the middle of the ceiling, it is actually a ballroom which was pretty unique in its architecture. I'd actually arrived early and the front desk was kind enough to arranged a room for me.
The room I got was very spacious, and facing Nanjing East road which gives the bustling Shanghai feel. Love the spacious bathroom, and well equipped with a bathtub and shower room.
The whole hotel gave me a luxury feeling yet the staff was friendly in all the queries I had with regards to the hotel or nearby attractions.

Room Tip: Request for a room with a nice view
