Fantastic and cozy location, near the subway, restaurants, and shopping. Miranda was great, as was the housekeeper (whose name I can't recall). New, clean furnishings, plus a great breakfast. We would gladly return.

Magnolia was the right choice for my Shanghai trip. The location in the French Concession was great, it is a place with character and has its own charm, it is very different from the rest of Shanghai. It is a residential area, so you feel that you are part of a community, we really liked the small shops and the... More

There are plenty of great hotels in Shanghai that will offer you immaculate rooms, great views and all mod cons - no different from most cities in the world. What they don't give you is a sense of being part of the local neighborhood. Magnolia delivers this in spades. It is a typical four-storey house in a typical street in... More

We - self, husband, daughter - stayed here for three nights and it was great. Miranda's personal attention to our needs and interests made us feel at home, the rooms were comfortable and much more fun than anonymous hotel rooms. Walking up the staircase with suitcases was a bit of a workout, but part of the feel of the place.... More

Absolutely wonderful property that was situated within walking distances of every bar and restuaant that was recommended to us by friends. Colin was incredibly helpful even though we arrived two hours late. Would highly recommend this property. The only downside is that there was no storage space fo clothes, so if you are planning on staying a long time it... More

I felt safe in the tiny but very clean and cool room. The bathroom was a nice space for small area. The breakfast was small but good. I found the man who was managing very helpful. It was in a convenient area. It would have been nice to have a small fridge or TV access but it was a nice... More

An adorable, clean, well run bed and breakfast with to lovely people running it. The young man working there is incredibly helpful. He wrote out directions for me everyday. The breakfast was great as was the convenient location which was in walking distance of many sights as well as public transportation.

Great spot as recommended by other trip advisor users. Central to the really interesting French Concession area. Markets, street food, gardens and locals make for interesting walks at any time of the day. Easy access to the subway. Looked after well by the staff with a homely feel to it. Stairs are a bit of an issue if you are... More
