Wish the WiFi didn’t require a text passcode. Had to pay international roaming charges just to get that text message. Otherwise it was a great hotel. Great location, nice spacious room.

Fabulous Shanghai Hotel
I stayed at the Shanghai Grand Central Hotel for 5 nights and had an excellent stay. The bed was super comfortable and the room was clean and spacious. Staff were very professional and courteous. Concierge assisted me with my train ticket purchase to Beijing. Hotel is located near numerous shops and restaurants near the Nanjing Road pedestrian area. Easy access to several subway lines in People's Square and East Nanjing Rd stops. Subway to the airport only cost 7RMB (a little over $1!!) and to Hongqaio train station for only 5RMB (less than a dollar!). My only gripe is that TV has very limited English stations. I went to Shanghai to attend the Shanghai Masters tennis tournament for 4 days and was surprised to find little or no coverage of the matches on TV. There were maybe 3 or 4 English language stations. Other than that, I had an awesome stay. This is my third stay at this hotel and will definitely be back next year for the tournament!

An outstanding hotel for the money. Very clean.
This hotel is one of the best for the money, in Shanghai. It is right off Nanjing Rd East and it is clean and neat. The concierge is helpful and everything you need is nearby. You can walk to the Bund and it is just two blocks from the Najing Rd East subway. Nice hotel.
