"It was a tough decision for my friend and I to choose hotel in Shanghai knowing the standard and rate in China can be quite different from other countries. We glad that we chose Grand Central despite some reviews said it has slow wifi. We had no problem with it and in fact even VPN works well for me. We love the fact that it is near Nanjing east station and it is very convenient (Family Mart is just behind the hotel, shopping district is just less than 5 minutes). It only cost us about RMB170 from Pudong airport to the hotel but it costs more from hotel to airport (RMB220).The only thing is we book the promo rate which is without breakfast, so can comment much on the food. Overall it was a pleasant stay. We will definitely go back if we are going to Shanghai again."

"Just a very nice experience. I've stayed in several hotels in Shanghai, this was the nicest in terms of value and quality. My only complaint was that they were remodeling the exterior of the building, and they started early in the morning on some days. But I recommend this hotel to anyone in the Jing An area. Very nice."

"I have stayed in other hotels in Shanghai previously but this hotel I would say is the best so far in terms of location, cleanliness, helpful staff, good food served at the restaurant and also strong WiFi signal in room. This hotel so near to the Bund just 8-10 minutes walk and many shopping outlets also within walking distance with the famous Nanjing Street just a stone throw away. I will definitely stay at this hotel from now onwards. For anyone still searching for a hotel in Shanghai, I recommend this hotel without reservation. "

"I love everything about this hotel. Great staff, lovely room, great location. Situated on the shopping Mall where the shops are. 10 minute taxi to the Fabric Market and 10 minute taxi to French Concession or a short train ride. Train line 2 minute walk from the hotel. The Bund is a 10 minute walk straight down the Mall. I would always stay at this hotel in Shanghai. "

"The hotel building looks old from the outside but the rooms seems to have been renovated not that long ago and seems new. For the price, I think you will be mostly satisfied with this hotel even though of course there will be better hotels in Shanghai at a higher price. The staff are polite and efficient even though communications in English may be difficult for them but that is a problem you will encounter in many places in Shanghai."

"There are more western owned 5 star hotels in Shanghai than I count. Hyatt (owned by Starwood) has at least 4 that I know of. There are also several other Starwood hotels in Shanghai. I have stayed in a couple of them. The Eton compares favorably with any one of them. It is just as well kept, just as luxurious, and just as comfortable as anyone could ask of a top 5-star hotel. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have slept on since I moved to China, and the bathroom was amazing! This was the biggest bathroom I have ever had in a hotel anywhere. The bath tub was an enormous 4 feet square (I think that is about 1.3 meters)and the rain shower was also huge. The hotel is in the business area of Pudong, but it is very close to a couple major tourist attractions for those wanting to sight see. The Oriental Pearl Tower and Super Brand Mall are about a 10 minute walk or a three minute taxi ride from the hotel, and there is also a metro station across the street from the hotel so almost anywhere in the city is just a ride away. Taxis in Shanghai are also plentiful and cheap by international standards and they can take you anywhere you will need to go for probably $6 or $7 at most. This is a great hotel and easy to find for a great price."

"This is definitely one of the best hotels that I have stayed in. Spent a few weeks going through the reviews of Shanghai hotels in Agoda before settling for a suite in SSAW Hotel Shanghai, and it was well worth the effort. Hotel suite was big, cosy, comfortable with great views, especially from the inviting bathtub. In short, this is a hotel with exceptional value for the guests in mind. What really made this a great hotel is its people. We were faced with a malfunctioning lift system on our day of departure. Our Level 11 room attendant immediately contacted the technician for assistance. As the technician was not able to rectify the problem immediately, the room attendant suggested an alternative service lift for our use. That's when we met with Niels and Linda. They were on their way to every level to 'rescue' their guests. Even though the whole episode probably took up 15 to 30 minutes of our time, it was really our privilege to witness the behind-the-scene work of these wonderful hotel staff. So do you think I will still stay in this hotel again? Definitely and it will be my only choice unless the hotel runs out of rooms! Our sincere thanks to all hotel staff for your excellent services and do continue to maintain it. Plus take good care of yourselves and your guests during this period when the H7N9 disease is lurking in Shanghai."

"If you will be taking the free shuttle service, exit at T1 Gate 8 on the 1st floor (or i think Gate 27 for those at T2). There will be no signs to where you should wait but just wait right in front of the exit of Gate 8. The shuttle bus of Shanghai Deco is a LIGHT BLUE mini bus that arrives every 20-30 mins, don’t get on the big buses because those are for other hotels/locations. We found it difficult to figure out where to go because no one speaks and understands english when we asked about the shuttle despite showing them the name of the hotel. Another tip: If you will be going around and need to speak to locals, load a translator on bing.com (google does not load in China). This will save you a lot of time from repeating yourself to locals who don’t understand english. "

"Booked this place in 2 min as I was next in line for the transit immigration officer and wanted to have a place to show. I am glad I did instead of booking the higher end places. The hotel has the best location I could ask for, 2 blocks from MRT in central Bund walking distance to Nanjing Lu and to all nightlife in the neighborhood. Moreover the room was quite comfortable, I was coming from Hong Kong and this felt like a 5 starts compared to those shitty hotels in Central. The staff also was super friendly and even bumped me up in the hotel. This is now my default place to stay at Shanghai and I look forward to the next time."
