Great hotel and we would recommend it for cozy room, friendly manager. The location was pretty good in Shanghai.The manager helped us a city trip and flight tickets, too. We enjoyed the breakfast although it was simple but tasty. We would recommend hotel for budget travelers.

This is not big hotel, its location was good and we booked one double room for 2nights. The manger agreed us to check out late without fee, it was great. I will end up my vacation after Soul and manager ask for me to book flight for Soul, it was so nice, and we get flight tickets for Soul after... More

I am not sure if the management has changed but this is the new name and new location of the Old House. We stayed recently at Kevin's Home in April 2012 for a week and enjoyed it very much. We had our whole family with us in Shanghai and so we rented one large room (big enough for an extra... More

We selected this hotel based on the hotel's designation by Fodors'.....ignoring the negative comments on tripadvisor. As usual, this was a big mistake. We were seeking somethin that was small, not a large, international chain. However, we did not want to stay in a rundown, poorly maintained property. Although we had paid extra to book a large, superior room, we... More

Thi sis lovely hotel on the far fringe of French Concession area. Downstairs is a restaurant affiliated with the hotel, A future Perfect. We enjoyed breakfast each morning and lunch on the day of our arrival. Food is good - not outstanding. The rooms and decor are lovely. The front desk is very accommodating. I would surely recommend this hotel... More

We stayed at the Old House as a part of our honey moon and we really loved it! The staff was a little uninterested and less helpful than what you would expect in Asia, the breakfast average and served in a not so charming bar, but this hotel is all about the rooms. Absolutely beautiful!

If a hotel calls itself old house you expectations as to how modern the place is can't possibly be very high. Old house is just as the name implies, old, charming and homey. It is in a great location opposite the Hilton and with a very good restaurant next door. I usually went there for breakfast as breakfast at the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the week before expo was opening. The renovations to the restaurant are still continuing which meant dust and building noises in the hotel. Work started at 8.30am and continued to after 6pm on Sunday. It seemed quieter on Monday which might be why it is taking so long. They said it should be... More
