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
