About Central Hotel


The Central Hotel, located in downtown Shanghai, has a lot to offer, including a great location all done in sleek and Western stylings. A very large hotel, with 27 stories to its towering frame, Central Hotel provides a wide array of options and room sizes to match your needs. All of the rooms are quite spacious. Something to keep in mind is that while other hotels may offer non-smoking rooms, this hotel offers entire non-smoking floors, something that can be very refreshing for non-smoking families. With the Wi-Fi, catering, meeting rooms, and high-class décor, Central Hotel is ideal for business. It's great location, right next to a popular shopping mall and many other areas of interest, makes for a fine choice of leisure as well.

Excellent Location, friendly staff, great experience overall
Excellent location, right next to the Nanjing Road; short walking distance to the famous Bund. Plenty of shops nearby for food and souvenirs. 5 minutes walk (maybe 10 for those leisure walkers) to two subway stations on People Square and South Nanjing Road stations. Very friendly and efficient staff, quick check-in and out (we checked in at 7pm and checked out at 8am). Our room was quiet and clean (Shanghai is very humid, so the room had the wet humid smell, I wouldn't blame the hotel but the Shanghai weather; perhaps the cleaning staff could use some dry patches or smell absorber). Wifi was spotting, but the ethernet cable was wonderful. Plenty of TV channels (even HBO) Overall an excellent experience, definitely made our 4-day trip in Shanghai a lot more pleasant. Will stay again if we visit Shanghai again.
