I stayed here while visiting Expo 2010. The room was large with all the amenities expected of a western style hotel. Breakfast in the buffet got a little crowded and it was a good idea to go early. The buffet dinner in the same room was OK, but I preferred their Asian restaurant where I had two very good meals. The hotel staff were friendly and very obliging.

There is a small convenience store within the hotel and they sell wine. I wanted a bottle to take to the room but they all had corks, and the store did not sell cork screws. However I found a shop nearby where I could by wine with a screw cap. .

It was an easy walk from the hotel to People's Square station to get to Expo, about 5 stops away on Line 8. You can walk there via a pedestrian mall with nice shops. Another option for getting to Expo was to take a cab to the dedicated station, where they have a line which takes you right into the site. The only drawback with this was hailing a cab at the station on the way back, so the line to People's Square is a more reliable way for the return journey.

The Central Hotel served my purposes perfectly and did not break the budget. I was on a package which an agent had arranged, including 4 nights accommodation, breakfast, airport transfers by car, a 3 day expo ticket and a train and bus pass. Some cabs also accept this pass.

I found the internet rates in the business centre a little expensive, as you pay for a minimum of 15 minutes at a time then so much per minute, and the connection was not fast.

We have ony 3 nights in shanghai So we try to get good one. I have checked on trip and internet and ask our friends we choose this hotel

First impression of the hotel foyer ...most impressive!
Our room was also impressive in decor and layout, in part being a corner room overlooking the square on Nanjing Road. Large, marble bathroom with the only shortcoming, both the bath and shower were combined.

Room was very big and really nice in modern way and e- suite China was so large country and so nice country so great. We enjoyed hotel with our most liked trip.
So good and heart center hotel.

Super location, 10/15 min walk to The Bund and there are lots of shops and restaurants on your doorstep. Foot Massages very good! Breakfast fine, large bedroom and very clean.

The hotel was very 'central', comfortable and had a superb international buffet breakfast.
Our room on the 11th floor was very good, well serviced, very comfortable and we enjoyed opening the window when we woke early to watch and listen to the Tai Chi group in the square below. A true 'sound of China'!
The staff were all very helpful and some of our small tour group relished the proximity to the bustling Nanjing Road.
