Grand Central Hotel Shanghai

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was my fourth stay at the Grand Central on the Bund. The hotel was clean, comfortable and beautiful as always. Location is excellent. I did have to bring my own bags to my room for the first time out of my stays when arriving at the hotel. And, I had a long wait on checking out of my room due to the line of people.

Great location would stay there again Breakfast is a little bit pricey

Unfortunately, we were only there overnight to meet friends visiting from overseas. The hotel was immaculate and and the location perfect, being two minutes from Peoples Square. A genuine five star boutique hotel.

Had stayed at this hotel 3 times before. Always enjoyed the stay here.

Great location next to East Nanjing Road shopping. The hotel has excellent wifi and the rooms are excellent.

I was staying there for a conference. I booked a king bed non-smoking room, which was all booked up on the day I checked in, the staff provided me an upgrade in the end. In terms of location, this hotel is probably _the_ best in the city heart (comparing to Fairmont Peace Hotel, this one is much closer to underground train station). The room is clean, comfortable (in fact I think all 5-star hotels in Shanghai should be good as they are so new), and the staff are friendly. Highly recommended.

Great hotel and value considering the location to the Bund and East Nanjing Road shoping. Always stay here when in Shanghai.

I was put off at first by the boxy , utilitarian look of the hotel. It didn't seem like a luxury facility. I'm glad to say I was wrong. I had a great stay. The restaurants were clearly for the expense account crowd so I ate at one of the many nearby places that were about a third of the price.

very good hotel, convenient location, clean, nice staff

Great location and nice hotel. Only few steps to Nanjing road and subway station. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Comfort room and bed.

Hotel is the best for exploring East Nanjing Road shopping and walk down to the Bund. Business trip and awesome for overall premium hotel location with value for money result.

I came to town for National Week. I saw a wonderful acrobatic show and did some shopping. The stay at the hotel was extremely comfortable. I have stayed previously here and will again. The location is great, the staff are friendly and the rooms are lovely. The only one thing that could have been better was the room temperature was a little warmer than I prefer but overall another great stay at the Grand Central.

Very large room, very comfortable bed and a very nice work desk.

Excellent hotel, good location Good value of money

Nice hotel in a convenient location. Easy access to Bus and subway station with lots of shops and eateries around. Good facilities in the Hotel.

The hotel was beautiful, conveniently located to major sites and subway lines. The services were excellent, prompt and helpful. I would definitely stay again at this hotel and would recommend it to others that are visiting the city.

Good hotel. relatively new with big TV and good wifi. Convenient location. Easy access to transportation to surrounding areas. Close to the main transit terminal where you can connect to most of the subway lines. Lots of shops in the surrounding area with different types of goods. Nice restaurant with good selection of food. Nice choice of food for buffet breakfast. Good and polite staff.

great location, closer to everything, shopping, dinning out, transportation. recommended very much

Great location, Good Price, Clean. Will come back again

Love this place. It's my go to place on my business trips. Breakfast charges are too high, so I normally patronize local restaurants, there are many, to give others a boost! Note: not sure why they have so many doors that they only open an unwelcoming crack (one panel) for guests! Very odd!
