      An okay hotel”

      Please read. I booked an executive queen bed on agoda and when i got my room, unfortunately, it was very different. Please be careful, the photos on agoda website and room title are misleading. In fact, the room which is advertised with photos as executive queen bed room is in fact an executive DELUXE queen bed room at the hotel. The hotel was very accomodating and contacted agoda and sorted it out. Finally i got my room exactly as the photos on agoda. The breakfast i believe is not up to the standard, i did not find it to my liking. Location is very good, a few minutes walk to nanjing road and subway.

      Superb location but front desk receptionist attitude are unfriendly, on duty manager are arrogant, stayed there for 3nights and ask for free upgrade if possible and got a reply for her is then u need to pay for it, or maybe she doesn't understand what's "possible". But the next counter who served one Chinese guy able to get free upgraded which he got a free breakfast voucher and if not mistaken he only checked in for one night.

      Great location! ”

      First of all location is great its in front of the park and nanjing road (where zara mcdonalds and kfc are located) walking distance from the bund and peoples square but around 20minute walk. Although you won't get bored or tired walking because all the way to the destination are shops and cafés. Shops include h&m uniqlo forever21 metersbonwe starbucks coco etc. The hotel has a beautiful lobby and just accross the street you'll find a small FamilyMart. Cons: apparently also the location is "touristy" not for the local market. A bit disappointing because i did not see any local grocery or any local shanghai street food market. Location is both a pro and a con. 😁

      Central Hotel is near one of the East Nanjing Rd metro stop exits. You can walk to the Bund and People's Square. The walking street is a block away and a great place for people watching. You can grab a cheap meal along the roads that connect to the main walking area.

      Short holiday at central’s shanghai”

      Check in was quick. Staff seemed friendly and able to converse in basic English as well. Room was gorgeous. Really happy we got upgraded. Spacious. Finishing are a tad old fashion but the views from our room was great. Beds were so comfy. Check out process though was bad. Was trying to rush myself to check out I was running late but I could see the manager( a guy in coat) just standing there doing his thing despite me trying to tell him I was rushing. I was asking him if he could assist me. Brushed off. They even had a problem reversing my credit card. Wasted another 5-10mins there. Really a disappointment to the end as we were really enjoying the hotel.

      We didn’t know we could only enter China without visas for up to 15 days for tourism. The staff, during check in, casually mentioned that and took us by surprise. The next morning, we went to the immigration dept, SIA branch and even tour agency to understand the visa matters and manage to book a last minute flight out. Otherwise, we could be penalised as overstayer. Thank you for the extra mile, Central Hotel.

      My new hotel in Shanghai.”

      It is always easy to find faults in any accommodation, but rare when you simply do not want to. The Central Hotel from start to finish was excellent and will be my default hotel in Shanghai from now on. English at the front desk is excellent, with the concierge is OK. As we arrived very early we were offered options and got a room quickly and efficiently. Breakfast was OK but always edible and filling. The room was magnificent with separate seating and bedroom areas within the space. The location is less than 100m to the shopping street so is perfect for business and tourism needs. While I prefer a softer bed I also got a good nights sleep so no complaints there either. The other final thing that I appreciated was the ability to open a window. Aircon all worked fine, but I do just love a fresh breeze sometimes.

      People at the front desk spoke good English and house keeping was friendly and helpful. But the best thing was the location,. Close to the Bund and People's square and less than a minute walk from Nan jing Lu and the metro. Would stay again if I needed a central location like this.

      It's not bad for the price, but it's not that special. Location is rather near from Nanjing East Station. At first, I got a little trouble from the runming square. It is good to enjoy Nanjing shopping street and Pudong night view. It is not the best of all, but it is not particularly uncomfortable or bad. Cleanliness and staff attitude are very good. 1000RMB for three nights stay.

      nice hotel in the heart of the city crowd”

      We went to the old building and right away sent out to their new building just across the streets. The reception is nice and friendly but not the bell boy nor the greeter boy or door boy or whoever stands in front of the hotel. They supposed to open the entrance, being helpful or at least smile to guests right? otherwise what is the point wearing nice uniform doing nothing but stay with the unfriendly look? Personally I would say it doesnt match with the fancy look of the hotel. anyway, luckily the bad impression outside doesn't happen inside. The reception is ok, fast, easy to talk to and friendly. The room is way nice and clean. Everything looks new and fresh. The location is just a thrown away from the crowd. Along the streets of Nanjing from East to West you can walk and enjoy the local foods, malls, street attractions etc.
