Having recently started a company, I am highly budget conscious when I am traveling. Unfortunately, Shanghai offers less and less budget options. But for the rate, Yan'An was perfect. Almost. The room was quiet, and the view of the garden was surprisingly quaint. Our room was more than adequate and comfy. The hotel is walking distance from the bars, restaurants,... More

Experiencing the east building! The room has the inconvenience of three steps from bedroom and bathroom that results very dangerous during night without lights . The rest of the room was very satisfactory . Wide window facing a small pagoda was very pleasant. Comfortable bed and overall services are sufficient standards . I did not practice the " too Chinese... More

You get what you pay for - this room is very small - both by square foot and vertically - I had to duck to get into the bathroom and also to enter into the room. The bed was even harder than the typical Chinese bed. Only saving grace was the location - close to metro and close to theatre

This hotel located about 12 minutes walk from the nearest metro station(Jian Temple). Stayed in the annex building behind the main tower - about 70 meters. No connecting roofed walkway. The room was considerably comfortable but the window is facing someone's kitchen - just a mere 2 meters away. The breakfast was quite lavish but not for guest who not... More

I have had a 2-night stay on 17 and 18 June 2013 at CNY590 per night with breakfast - the booking was done by my business contact in Shanghai. Good points: 1. It is safe. 2. The room is quite big and comfortable (for a couple although am alone) and reasonably well cleaned. 3. The bed and pillow are comfortable.... More

To start with, the location is pretty darn good. Everything else is poor to average. The room feels crowed and is old. The bathroom roof is very low, if you are taller then 6 foot, DO NOT stay here. The hotel is barely above motel 168 standard. I do not see how it can claim to be a four star... More

Hotel is has poor amenities. Our group met at the lobby bar for drinks 1st night before dinner and they did not even have enough cold beers (we were the only group in the bar!) There is no proper restaurant - breakfast is in a function hall with buffet table along the side. All dining tables are for 8 persons... More

Yan'an Hotel is not one of the finest hotels in Shanghai - but it is a good alternative for those on a budget. The public areas are lovely, and the hotel is clean - but the rooms are small, air conditioning can't keep up on hot days, and quality of service is variable. English is hit or miss. Breakfast buffet... 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.
