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

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

We enjoyed our 3 night stay from having Collin arrange a pick up at PVG to organizing a taxi back to PVG. Suggest on a late night arrival at PVG that a car is arranged as it is far from the city centre and public transportation options are cumbersome. We stayed in the Green room that has a small balcony.... More

This is a very difficult review because there were definite good things about the Magnolia and a few poor things as well. The good is the location, which is in the French Concession and is a great neighborhood for a smaller, more intimate feel with some fine restaurants very close by. They serve a good breakfast, western style, and have... More
