About Grand Central Hotel Shanghai, Shanghai

Modern hotel with Old World charm and pool near Nanjing Road

Nanjing Road boutiques

Grand Central Hotel Shanghai is a minute's walk south of the pedestrianized Nanjing Road East, one of the world's biggest shopping areas. Nanjing Road is also your closest metro station, and if you walk 10 minutes west you'll hit The Bund, Shanghai's famous waterfront area.

Exploring The Bund

The Bund is an important spot in Chinese and European history and this is reflected in its stately buildings, now home to buzzing cafés and bars. Shanghai Natural History Museum is a 5-minute drive south and is one of the largest in China, holding over 200,000 items.

A choice of restaurants

Beyond its breathtaking lobby, the hotel is home to 3 F&B venues, namely Central Grill, Bo Yuet Jin and Coffee Shop. You can work up a sweat in the hotel's fully equipped fitness center, and later cool off in the indoor swimming pool.

Free Internet and papers

The Old World opulence of the 353 guestrooms hides a range of modern conveniences, such as free Internet, coffeemakers, and flat-screen TVs with premium channels. There's a turndown service on hand, plus complimentary bottled water and newspapers.

Grand Central Hotel Shanghai, Shanghai
1 bedroom suite free upgrade!
Fantastic Hotel. A Chinese Government official was staying on our final night of our hotel stay. They vacated our floor for him, but the hotel upgraded us to a gigantic one bedroom suite. It was so big, we didn't know what to do with it. LOL Thank you to the Hotel Staff who gave us the suite. :-D

Superior hotel.
Can’t say enough great about this hotel. You can’t get much better location or staff. I’ve stayed here multiple times and everything is always perfect.

Grand Central Hotel Shanghai, Shanghai
This hotel was wonderful. Great service and staff. We had breakfast one day, they have a good variety in the buffet, but decided to eat in the city the other days to get to experience Shanghai. I would definitely book again in the future.
