Very ideal location, close to everything downtown. 10-15min walk to the Bund and 2 minute walk to metro, so can explore areas further away. Great staff, comfy rooms!! Will stay here again!

Got a free upgrade to a business suite for my stay, it was amazing! I always stay here when I visit Shanghai (unless it gets too pricey). Book ahead when it's not unreasonably expensive and this hotel is definitely worth it.

Hotel is in excellent location just 100 meter from east nanjing metro station at center of city which also links directly to podong airport .hotel is extremely clean , but the breakfast is quite expensive, and the internet is really a major issue in this hotel if you are internet fan , think about another hotel !, and the hotel would charge you for 60 RNB for each room access card if you loose them, but otherwise everything else in this hotel is excellent and I highly recommend this hotel for tourists

Convenient location but the reception staff need more training on customer service. The deposit is quite a hefty sum but the receptionist gave me no receipt (my stay at hotels in other China cities all did). When checking out, we were asked whether we used the mini bar which I didnt know existed at all. Overall, dont think it worth the value.

Grand Central Hotel Shanghai is in strategic location. The room is large, clean with complete amenities. It is cery close to Nanjing street, malls and walking distance to The Bund. The hop on hop off tour bus stop is a few minutes away from the hotel. The staff were courteous and very helpful. This hotel is highly recommended.

Horrible Internet, Jacuzzis are for Men Only! However, good location. ”
The Internet is super slow and WiFi only reaches certain areas. So if you need to work, forget using your own computer. Staff was urging guests to get a local SIM card to run Internet hotspots from your phone since it would be faster. If you are a woman wanting to relax in the jacuzzi, FORGET IT!! Those are only in the MEN’S CHANGING ROOM. Plus the pool is not a place for families in the evenings. There are hard core power swimmers doing laps. Having said that, the location is amazing! The hotel is clean and food options near and around the hotel are good. Go for the Executive Room option always. You get more food and beverage choices. However, the Internet and separate, and not equal, facilities will not bring me back to this hotel. Both are appalling!

Not as good as before”
This is my third stay. A bit disappointing as there is no wifi in the room, the breakfast is a bit short. I have to buy a China Phone card to get wifi which is ridiculous for a visitor. In the end, I spent USD 150 just for 6 days data roaming. Still a great hotel at a great price in a good location.

Good location but staff is disappointing”
Staff is well below expectation, reception staff do not have the smiling face, checked in at 2.30am as I have a late evening flight into Shanghai, the computer system apparently required to restart, made to wait at 2.30am to check in ?? Following day a managerial staff (i assume due to suit he is wearing) rushed into a lift that i was in , he saw me in the lift with door closing but still press the lift button to come in and panting for breadth in the lift. A VIP guest was apparently staying in the hotel, so scanning machines were there, on one evening we were smoking outside in a designated smoking area of the hotel, but was told quite rudely by hotel staff to clear from the smoking area (i assume once more, they are preparing for the VIP to return, i will really appreciate if the staff were to approach us in a more polite way. However I will like to praise the guy in the Busines Centre , he is really good and smile all the time,he is helpful, best of all staff

good location, lack of attitude.”
plus-good location. very close to the main streets and walking distance to the bund. many good restaurants nearby. minus - takes long~ time to check in. I arrived at the hotel 1:40 and the staff said my room would be ready at 2:30. So, I asked the conciergy to keep our bags and went out to look around the city. and came back to the hotel at around 4:00. and another front desk staff told me that I had not checked in so needed to do check-in process from the beginning again. In the end, I and my family could get rooms completely at over 6:00p.m. I understand they could have been busy that day, but the thing was their attitude to the guest in this situation. I still remember the attitude of the front desk staff who was charge of me at first. He told me back when I showed my unpleasantness that he had said 'the room was dirty' like he had not done anything wrong and I was rather captious. I didn't say back to him about it because I didn't want to ruin my trip with family.
