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.

We stayed here for 2 nights. It is just 5 minutes walk from Nangjing Road East station and 10 minutes walk to People's Square. We upgraded our room and stayed on upper floor, and had nice view from our windows. I would recommend this hotel.

Overall good hotel. Most lobby staff are professional and helpful. Housekeeping and kitchen folks are super nice and sweet-they deserve a raise. The guy that my friend asked to get us a taxi was so grumpy and unhappy, he didnt want to get us a taxi. Then when there was a taxi

Central Hotel Shanghai is situated in the Western side of the Huangpu river in Shanghai... close to the shopping districts of Nanjing Road and Huaihai Road. Overall the hotel is a little tired, needs to be refreshed. But rooms are large and comfortable, fairly clean and decent

Hi there, In my travels in China, especially the first level cities like Shanghai and Beijing, you can be bold and haggle on deposits. In at the Central in Shanghai, they asked for something crazy as deposit. (About as much as we had as spending money for the week), which I thought was rude. I resisted, and they backed down and asked for 1000Y which was much more reasonable. I feel it is a game they play (as do most international hotels), but if they think we will walk, they stop the rigmarole and they are civil.

How do I get to hotel from airport
The easiest way is to take a taxi but before ask the hotel to send the name and address in chinese and a map because sometimes taxi drivers do not know how to read chinese. Tell him to put the taximeter when you get in the car and ask the hotel how much is approximately from the airport to the hotel.

How do I get there from Pu Dong airport
Sorry for the delay, I am not on this site all the time. I took a cab, as a tourist they literally throw themselves to you. There is a meter so no worries of running up the tab. As 2 women traveler we took cabs only. PS you can google map your distance to ensure it is within the proper mileage. Have fun!

best is to contact the hotel directly. I like this hotel because it is centrally located, near to Nanjing Lu (main shopping area) and room condition is great. Service very good.

"Ask for truely non smoking room"
"It’s a high rise hotel with great views and good sound proofing so all floors are good."
"Ask for a view over the pedestrian mall and up high if possible"
"Breakfast is served until 10AM. At 9:40AM we were rushed to finish! At 10AM sharp, expect for everything to be taken away."
"Entry level rooms are sufficient, no need to upgrade!"
