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!

Luxury experience
Beautiful old world charm hotel. It gives a feeling of luxury at a reasonable price. It is in a great area, close to Nanjing rd and metro. Safe area to walk at night. I would stay there again if I ever go back to Shanghai. They did experience a problem with the A/C on our floor.

Good 6,0
I returned in the evening from the swimming pool to the room and there was no hot water to shower I had to shower in cold water for not being late for a meeting. I called the service and was offered a shower in the pool showers, very disappointing and unacceptable in a five star hotel.

Good location
The hotel is located very well and it is a 15 minute walk to the Bund. I enjoyed my stay at the hotel, my room was comfortable, the pool was great but the water temperature was too hot, OK for lazing around in for a while, but not for a bit of training. I guess it depends on the price of the room but I had no view over the city at all.

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.
