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

Pei Mansion is a small hotel in an old mansion in the center of Shanghai. The location is great - walking distance to Jing'an Temple and Nanjing West Road (shopping district). Taxis to the Bund are around 30 RMB. The rooms are clean, neat and have a Jacuzzi. What made this hotel exceptional for us was the service. Staff was... More

We were attracted by the historical significance and the location of the hotel, we stayed there for two nights, and we were somewhat disappointed. Taking a closer look, the hotel and the room needs maintenance. The breakfast is very average by any standard (both asian foods and the western foods), we have to have another breakfast in the nearby restaurant... More

Off Nanjing West Road, just a few hundred meters from Shanghai's main shopping artery, is this small hotel, located in the building that IM Pei's family lived in. The garden and the outside of the hotel already takes visitors back in time, but the interior is even more lovely and a throw back to the early 20th century. The room... More

Pei Mansion is a very charming art deco building in a very strategic location, right off Nanjing Lu. The place is beautiful, it has a nice little garden, the rooms are nice and charming....but the service is not at all a 5 star service!

During my trip to Shanghai last November, I purposely booked at different hotels, two to three nights per property, to experience different Shanghai accommodations. And while I knew it was a bit of a hassle to have to check-out and check-in again in another location, I didn't really mind the extra effort. One of the hotels I booked at is... More

We toured China for one month and we chose this hotel and paid a premium. We could not wait to check in as we had just spent 48 hours on a train from Lhasa, Tibet and were ready for a bit of luxury. The hotel certainly has the feel of a converted mansion with narrow corridors and one small elevator.... More

We used TA for booking this hotel and were not sure what to expect as there were some mixed reviews. Overall, it was a satisfactory stay for us, but of all the hotels we stayed at in a one month stay in South East Asia, it would rank near the bottom. Here are both the pros and cons as we... More
