Yes, this is a business hotel and no more. Everything is clean, room is big and noise level remain okay for the whole night. We can get a good sleep there. Price is a bit high but is understandable regarding the location that this hotel has. The location is good, in the middle of city so is easy to reach... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during business trip. The location is perfect. The subway station is just in front of the hotel and 2 stations away from the People Square, 4 stations from Lujiazui where the famous Oriental Pearl Tower is located. The room was clean, the staffs were helpful and can speak English well. Highly recommended!!

At motel rates, don't expect the Ritz and enjoy its prime location. Right Place- In the middle of HuaiHai Road, it is at the heart of Shanghai's main retail district. There's a Starbucks right on the ground floor, a small supermarket in the Parkson's across the street and shopping malls all around. Right Room- The facility is currently being refreshed... More

Overall an average hotel. With the odd high light. The location is good. Really helpful staff when the Internet goes wobbly. What ever the time of year the air condition is lousy. In summer you roast in winter you freeze. And in Spring the air con has a mind of its own. Rooms average. clean and a reasonable size. Don't... More

I was recommended by my business counterpart in Shanghai to stay here. Unlike the five star hotel but the comfort ness is not bad at all. Location is good as it is very close to the Line 1 subway Shangxi South Road station, next to a department store, very close to Xin Tian Di area. Receptionist speaks English, and sometimes... More

Stayed here while filming a documentary. Rooms were very clean and the staff were very helpful. At breakfast I was not accustomed to sitting a tables with other people I didn't know, but that was how it worked during my stay. It seems we Americans are not used to that, but it was fun because I was able to make... More

This place has the best, most convenient location. Cafes, restaurants, shopping all closeby. I stayed in a single room, and although the temperature control didn't seem to work too well for both the room and the temperature of the shower, I'd definitely stay there again.

With Starbucks attached to the Hotel and Costa Coffee around the corner as well as City Shop, it couldn't be better. And then there is McDonalds and Haegen Dasz opposite. And it is all in the middle of the French Concession. Amazing!! A great rooftop area although the view is not startling but still good and so is the breakfast.

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.
