We loved staying here. Staff is so helpful and nice. Can't say enough about them. Great location! 3 mins walk to subway on major lines. Breakfast, lunch and if you reserve, dinner. Plus you can hang out in the restaurant area as well. Felt like we were at home. All the comforts necessary. We stayed in the Bubbling Well room... More

Lovely boutique B and B - checked in early Stayed in the loft room which was compact but everything was there that you would need. House itself is a little tired and could do with a lick of paint. Owners Po and Kenny really helpful, although forgot to leave us promised breakfast on our last morning! Great location for restaurants.

The BnB is very cozy and located in the quiet but trendy French quarter. The owner was very helpful and gave us good suggestions on how to spend our day. Note that, as other reviews have mentioned, the room we stayed in was tiny. It was fine for 2 people but it would be crowded for any more. We enjoyed... More

Great rooms. Well equipped and great decor. Spotlessly clean. Rooms are on the smaller side, but the hotel more than makes up for this is in an great location (in the heart of the French Quarter, near the metro and the streets are wonderful to walk round at night but private, set back from the street and quiet). Good breakfast,... More

We spent 4 nights here on our first trip to Shanghai and the first impressions were great - the responses to my queries via email were extremely prompt, the booking was painless and directions and plans for checking in were explained in detail as we were arriving after the reception had closed. When we arrived (and we got there before... More

This was our first visit to Shanghai from nearby Suzhou, and the Quintet was the perfect place to stay. Po and Kenny took excellent care of us. They provided a map and list of nearby restaurants and attractions. It's in a great location-about 5 minutes walking to the subway, plenty of great restaurants, and lots of shops and cafes on...

I have always been a fan of this hotel for a very long time - it is my favourite place to stay in Shanghai city, the perfect location as it is located in a very charming part of the French Concession area, with easy access to everyone and a 10 minutes walking distance to Jingan temple. Every time when there... More

This was once probably quite nice but is now no longer the shiny boutique of all the past reviews. With decor that is relying on a reputation that is clearly out of date the overall impression is weary. Sometimes chipped paint can be carried off with the power of personality but this was also lacking. Not sure who is in... More

We arrived at Quintet on a rainy evening after four nights at the Four Seasons in another city. What a departure from the usual it proved to be from the start. The charming five-room B&B is a 1930s building in the French Concession in Shanghai converted from an old family home. Located opposite a high rise building that houses several... More

The staff was excellent supported by their fluent English. The location is perfect (restaurants, metro, boutiques). It is housed in traditional French concession style house and very well maintained. The rooms are nicely decorated.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
