Fabulous 8.8 From 760 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent property and great service.
Excellent Hotel with great staff and good service. The location was great, easy to get to from the metro line, maybe 10 minute walk at most. Very very nice to be near the closed off E. Nanjing Rd was nice to walk along. The swimming pool at Grand Central across the street was easy to access and use. We had no problems with staff and English.

48 hours in the amazing city of Shanghai
We in fact stayed at the 5 Star Grand Central which was across the street. There was a mix up with our booking, so we were upgraded. The staff at both hotels were wonderful and very helpful, especially the bell hops, who helped with luggage, booked cabs and gave info on sight seeing. Since the hotels are just one block away from Nanjing Road and a very easy walk to the Bund. Our room was perfectly set up, anything you could need was there even an umbrella. We did not dine at any of the restaurants on this trip. There was a very large entry way with a area set aside for tea and a larger for dinning. The only down side was the internet, we had to get a special code and it lasted only a short time.

Great experience
Great location. Good service. Awesome view from our room. Very helpful staff. That'd be nice if they had a swimming pool.

Some improvements needed
When we checked in, reception seemed a bit rude. I couldn't hear what she was saying to me most of the time - when I asked her to repeat herself, she seemed annoyed. She got me to pay for my room which I thought the charge went through. She then asked a room deposit (2800 yuan) and the charge didn't go through (second transaction) (my friend used her credit card). When we checked out - we were told we hadn't paid for the room yet and reception wanted to take the room charge out of the deposit. Reception at check out was friendly. As for the rest of the staff - housekeeping and bell person weren't friendly - both were helpful but didn't seem happy to see guests. Carpet in room needs to be updated. Poor wifi. Location was great!

Quirky property.. 3.5-4 star
Could not have asked for a better location, central, and within easy walking distance to everything. Although the hotel at one time was obviously a 5-star property, it is in need of some modernization. Dated property. Up-graded to the "club" floor which gave us a significantly larger room/suite like, but not sure what extras it actually gave us. The breakfast buffet which was included with the upgrade was very limited with a mostly cold selection and afternoon "happy hour" although supplied alcohol, the food was less than desirable. The general attitude of the staff, in general, was quirky, not sure in a good way. Despite all of this would most likely stay at the property again, good value for the price, and I know what I am getting.
