I lived in the smallest room without window. Although many people complaint the size and no window, it is fine to me. It has a double size bed, tv, internet (wi-fi available too!) and a shower. It's all I need! I don't want to pay an extra money on the window! I used an alarm to wake me up in... More

The rooms are very small, but spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and modern. The location is excellent. It is a ten minute walk from the Bund and nearest Metro station. There are several small cafes serving noodle/rice dishes for 10yuan across the street, plus a supermarket a few doors away. Look for the one owned by the Muslim guys. Great place... More

Staying in Hongkou

Neighborhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
