I had 2 rooms. The first one was very good. The second one seemed to have had a water damage and was smelly but had a beautiful view to the garden. The location is very convenient within walking distance from Zhaojiabang subway station. The breakfast buffet was not good, only Chinese, but did for me. Some tables where still full... More

This boutique hotel is in an ideal location, Art Deco styling and rooms quite spacious including bathroom. We were booked for 13 days, the service so poor we moved out after 4 days. Very poor service mainly in the dining area, first morning, we had to ask for basic items, spoon, milk, sugar, tea, we actually provided our own tea... More

A fantastic hotel in almost every way. In the heart of Shanghai yet quiet and restful. If you want a spacious and clean room with a great bathroom, a beautiful bar/lounge. If you want a location that will give you peace and quiet in tree lined avenues yet close enough to everything you'd probably want from Shanghai then stay at... More

As simple as this: the Hotel made possible to have the best vacation we've had in years, making every effort to provide good service and the rooms have a special style. Highly recommended! This was truly a good experience.

An elegant French colonial style boutique hotel, quietly tucked away from the main street at the end of a gated lane, yet only minutes from the heart of the city. Forget the suspicious reviews at the bottom of this bread - here comes the truth!! Good points: beautifully appointed, high quality, fabulous rooms (only 16 of them, each with polished... More

Very interesting hotel. Takes you back to Shangahi in the early 1900s. This building probably used to be a mansion at the time and they converted it into a boutique hotel. The service is good but if you are looking for the big and new hotel experience, this is probably not for you.

I am always concerned when I see glowing or gushing Tripadvisor reviews written by first timers all around the same date, it does not help to project a positive image of the hotel and Tripadvisors are a savvy lot and usually see through this type of nonsense. The Shanghai Imperial Palace Club should stand on its own merits it is... More

Reading the other reviews before I booked this hotel, I almost feel there is something strange going on! I can not understand all the positive comments, as this was not the place I arrived at. A dark alley with a half closed gate even made the taxi driver a bit confused, I was met by a dark entrance with no... More

This is really great hotel in truly great location. The rooms are terrific and the overall atmosphere is great. Breakfast is delicious and the bar a delight (the onely place i've found in asia actively promoting whisky mac ;). The staff are very friendly and helpful and the owner hands on in the best sense of the phrase. Walk out... More

Met here for a business dinner, just like being in Paris, they didn't even have a Chinese menu, just a top class Parissienne set menu, French wines, real coffee etc. I had a guided tour and the rooms are lovely. The location is perfect for exploring the French concession and Zhaojiabang Road subway (lines 7 & 9). You may have... More

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
