Luxury hotel with great city views, conveniently located for walking to the Bund or taking the subway. Outstanding breakfast buffet.

Great hotel in central Shanghai.
Consistently reliable for quality, comfort & cleanliness. AC always cold & outstanding Dim Sum in their Chinese restaurant - I make sure to eat there every time I'm there.

AAAAA Plus hotel! Beautiful and convenient!
This is a very posh and beautiful hotel in the heart of Shanghai. The service was excellent, the room was gorgeous, and the hotel was spotlessly clean. The wifi in my room was weak, so the hotel provided a router free of charge, which made the wifi much faster and more reliable. The breakfast is hugely overpriced, so we did not participate. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

Grand Central Hotel Shanghai, Shanghai
Very Good8.0
The hotel is actually lovely. It is clean, located in a convenient location near the pedestrian mall and the subway. It is not heavily trafficked like people's square, but easy to get everywhere. Dining in the area is limited. The hotel has a large, beautiful lobby. Unfortunately, they restrict seating there if you walk in with a coffee from outside or any food from the outside. You are pointed to a total of two couches and four chairs for sitting, off to the side. Sorry, but when I stay at a hotel, I expect to be able to sit in the lobby with my cup of coffee and not be made to feel like an intrusion. Small thing, but small things are what separate a good hotel from a great hotel. They should be more customer centric. The front desk staff were pleasant and efficient. As written about, they try to upsell you on a room on check-in to something "larger" as there is a "special" available. I declined and our rooms (two, although they couldn't put us next to each other, just on the same floor) were more than adequate. The doormen were indifferent and barely acknowledged us for most of the stay. The hotel itself is well maintained, and the cleaning staff were wonderful. Overall, it was a good place to stay. It is a liitle off the main "western" track, so there are many more locals staying there and there are some small family marts, and a Wagas in the neighborhood for convenience.
