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.
