Fantastic and luxurious hotel in a great and very central location, that is two minutes walk to Nanjing Road shopping, ten minutes to The Bund and attractions like The Oriental Pearl and a short walk to Peoples Square. Check in was fast and efficient, service always very friendly and the large rooms with large tv, comfortable bed and a lovely...

The localization of this hotel is the best. It located a quarter street from the principal street of Shangai and 1 min walk from the subway. The hotel itself is very good. Room are big and clean. Bathroom is also very spacious. I had an excellent stay.

arguably the best location in Shanghai, good rooms, good value. My only complaint is that the WiFi is subpar, even by Chinese standards. Nevertheless, the pros outweigh the negative and I will be glad to stay there again.

After staying at the Portman Ritz Shanghai, Regent Beijing, Hilton Xian, was not expecting that much from the Grand Central Hotel but I must say the rooms are equally as good as the others. Loved the room, walk in robe with safe, tea and coffee facilities, iron and board, full bath, large shower, separate toilet, comfy bed, desk, wifi, etc....

The location of this hotel is really outstanding! It is a block away from the pedestrian crowds and the shopping on Nanjing street and it is only a short walk down to the Bund. Everything else is what you expect from a good five star hotel with fast efficient service. We would certainly stay there again if we returned to...

One of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. Very spacious rooms in a perfect location in Shanghai - close to shopping, sightseeing and the subway. Highly recommended. We only stayed one night, but wished we had stayed more.

We spent three nights at the Grand Central Hotel Shanghai in August 2014. Very comfortable hotel with lovely rooms and great beds. Pretty average executive lounge although beautifully appointed. Lacked atmosphere and service was very slow even there wasn't anybody else there. Breakfast was very good but other food service very poor. Needs a better chef. Bread rolls inedible. Soup...

This hotel has the best service, best rooms, best price/quality, best services of all hotels I have been to in Shanghai. The only problem is the bad traffic around this area, but this too is balanced by the amazing speed at which the doormen can get you a taxi!

Upon arrival in this rather swish hotel I was told that the rooms I'd booked were "rather small" and offered an upgrade (with accompanying costs). I said I'd like to see the rooms in question, so was shown up to the 13th and 15th floors by a polite gentleman on Reception called Eric. The original rooms were absolutely fine and,...

Staying in People’s Square

Neighbourhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
