About Central Hotel Shanghai, Shanghai

Hotel with Old World charm and restaurant near Nanjing Road

South of the Wusong River

A landmark in itself, the eye-catching spire of the Central Hotel Shanghai is a block south of Nanjing Road, and a 5-minute drive from The Bund. It's on the south side of the Wusong River, and the People's Square and East Nanjing Road Metro Stations are both a 7-minute walk.

Entertainment in the park

A 15-minute stroll through People's Park takes you to the Great World Entertainment Center, a historic amusement arcade and theater. Or you can walk 5 minutes to Nanjing Road and experience one of the world's longest pedestrianized shopping streets.

Karaoke, classic seafood

For a dining experience that transports you to Shanghai's stately past, you can try fresh crab at Shanghai Restaurant, or a private dining room at Wang Bao He. Modern amenities include karaoke and virtual golf, plus a fully equipped fitness center and spa.

Rich decor, free Internet

The 312 richly decorated guestrooms have an Old World feel, but amenities are modern: you'll have free Internet access and flat-screen TVs with premium channels. Executive rooms come with minibars and access to the Executive Lounge, which offers complimentary drinks.

Very Nice Hotel.
Amazing hotel. I had an executive suite and it was marvelous. Tremendous amount of space. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Classy Hotel in City Center
Very classy hotel right in the center of things. The only drawback was that they said you would need a local telephone number to get internet, which was a bid odd as the coffee shop down the street had wide open free internet.

Central Hotel Shanghai, Shanghai
Great value, great location
This is one of my go-to hotels in Shanghai, especially if I have staff traveling with me who are on their first trip to China. The location is very close to the Subway (Line 2, East Nanjing Rd Stop). It is close to People's Square, shopping and great restaurants.
