I found this hotel onilne and was very excited to stay here after reading the reviews. After staying here for 4 nights, I've found the reviews to be completely different to reality. The hotel conditions are poor, breakfast is terrible, and wifi connectivity is patchy. The room is average, everything looks OK but doesn't work. Not worth the value and... More

Interesting history, location and lovely accommodations in this traditional Chinese mansion. Be sure to ask if they are holding any events. . .as the lobby gets blocked off for use and breakfast is brought to your room and it is required to use the side entrance. Not as memorable/enticing when using the side entrance each day.

Great location and beautiful fixtures and fittings, in an Art Deco building full of history and character. However there were many staff who seemed untrained. I was unable to get recommendations for a local restaurant. The breakfast waitress was unable to operate the coffee machine. The check out staff struggled with the credit card machine. The laundry was delayed in... More

Only 5 min from Portman behind in a small street, 10 min from Jing An subway station, and all major shopping malls, restaurants and serene Jing An park, all walking distance, Pei Mansion is perfect for romantic couples seeking sweet memory, or trying to experience timeless love almost a century ago. Classic furniture, yet equipped with fast Wi-fi, modern jacuzzi,... More

We were very welcomed by the front desk upon arrival. The gentleman who showed us the room introduced us to the history of the old house and the family. If you are interested, he will be happy to explain the structure and stories behind which was like staying in a museum with a tour guide! Only down side was the... More

We loved the charm and history that has been maintained in this beautiful boutique hotel. The friendly staff and the level of service from them created such a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The room had an old world charm with a luxurious bathroom. The location was very central to the shopping centres and train station. It was truly an oasis with... More

We couldn't have wished for a more beautiful stay in Shanghai. PEI Mansion, with it's magnificent history, elegant design and a staff that could not do more to make us welcome, was a genuine joy. Thankfully this beautiful boutique hotel has retained it's architectural detail, fine wood work, high ceilings, lavish bathrooms and lovely furnishings. There is an energy and... More

What an amazing hotel. Small and very well staffed. A wonderful spiral staircase with the shape of a Dragon all the way down. Top floor room has a large walk out balcony, large enough for a party of it's own. Excellent location just off the main shopping street. I will be returning to Shanghai next March and will definitely book... More

The Dragon Stairs was first bulit in 1934. It is one of the logo of this building. Mr Pei want to pass lots of information from this stair to his family members. Thanks for your detail reviews and see you in March. More
