I stayed at the Grand Central Hotel Shanghai March 31-April 5, 2014 with 4 other friends and everyone of us loved the hotel. I am a travel agent and did lots of research on hotels in Shanghai and I will say I chose a great one. The employees are all very friendly and knowledgeable, the hotel has a beautiful big...

For what it is worth you cannot say that it location sucks. It's as near as you can get the heart of the city and with that comes also the negative point as it is very noisy 24 hours a day. If you want a quality night's sleep, try to get a room away from the central road. The breakfast...

Spent 3 nights here with our 2 boys in March. Boys asked if we were sure this was right hotel when we walked into lobby, they thought it looked to fancy for us!

Only stayed one night, but wish it had been longer. Fantastic location, friendly staff, comfortable room. Swimming pool and health area was fine. I didn't eat in the hotel, but there was no shortage of small restaurants in the area. No complaints at all.

I cannot tell you how much we loved this hotel. It was a perfect ending to our China trip and we chose well. The lobby is beautiful, the room and bathroom luxurious, and the included breakfast buffet was inspiring. The fruit and fruit plates were kept in a cooler display case along with various cheeses. The display of food options...

The hotel was terrific. It boasted a gorgeous lobby, a spacious and luxurious room and incredibly central location. Once we turned in, we found our room was nice and quiet - a great escape from the heat and hustle bustle of the streets outside. We highly recommend a stay here.

This hotel is in the centre of Shanghai. Very nice, great room, clean and spacious. I got a good deal by booking online for two nights, otherwise it may be too pricey. The rate did not include breakfast but if you just step outside you have plenty of food options, so not much of a problem. Great location, at night...

Upon Check-In, I was offered to upgrade for a very nominal price at a special scheme which I took for an Executive room. It offered complimentary drinks at a separate lounge along with meals. Beautiful hotel with nice interiors. Very good service at concierge. Location is excellent. very nice and beautiful hotel with good service.

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.
