We stayed in this hotel with my family for one night only because it is the closest to our home. It is located on the south border of French Concession in front of a busy road. There is Jiashan subway station 5 minutes away by walk connecting to line 9 and newly opened line 12; I think location is not... More

I was put up there by my hosts for a week and I have to say, while it is not the Grand Hyatt Incheon or some such five-star experience, the rooms were generously spaced and well equipped and functional. Not at all run down (as someone claimed) although it might be a good idea to insist on a non-smoker room... More

I stayed at this hotel purely because it was the location for my conference. Based on the reviews I was expecting it to be horrible, but it was ok overall. The rooms were spacious, although outdated, musty, and not the cleanest. Turning on the AC alleviated the musty smell. The bed was comfortable and clean, but there's no way I... More

Rooms all smell like smoke and look like from a bad 70ties movie (brown carpets with stains). I looked at several rooms to find the least smelly one, but they all are and they are all similarly ugly The bed is rock hard and the noise insulation to the neighboring rooms is non-existent. The breakfast buffet is also something you... More

Stayed here two nights after booking a deluxe queen room through a well known Chinese travel site and paid only just over 1000 RMB. Didnt see the other rooms to compare but the deluxe room was worth the value. Dont bother with the hotel breakfast, you're better off getting something quick at the Starbucks downstairs and move into town. There's... More

The property was recently renovated & this was evident after looking at some of the common areas (that werent renovated) like the baggage storage area. I was staying in a deluxe room that masqueraded as a suite with a TV dividing the room into two. This was really only one room. The location of the hotel is very convenient close... More

The room was clean. The hotel staff speaks English well enough to communicate if you don't speak Mandarin. The food was decent. The air conditioner in the room was too weak, and the A/C in the conference room was absolutely horrible. Be sure to bring a computer that has an ethernet port if you want to access the internet in... More

This is a hotel which tries hard to be a first rate international hotel but which ultimately falls short. Bring a computer whch has an Ethernet port if you plan to use the Internet in your room (thank you earlier reviewers for pointing that out). The room was up to business travel standards, nothing wrong there. If visiting for a... More

Entrance and accuiel makes impression like you are in a lux hotel but it's not. You could find a dust on TV and holes in towels. They speak English in a hotel. You have wired Internet which was working rather fine. Few minutes walking to subway station line 9, few steps away from typical chinese street with cheap "restaurants". Breakfast... 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.
