We stayed in a newly renovated two bedroom. It is nice. The staff is very helpful. The apartment is clean in spite of the work going on to renovate the other floors. There are a few annoyances with the renovation: no place to dry clothes, some of the cupboards in the kitchen cannot be opened due to appliances. Considering a... More

The location is ideal, within walking distance to Sun Moon Lake mall where restaurants are aplenty or the nearby Loft area which is just behind the apartment. It is also close by to Jiashan road, a charming street and leads down to Yongkang Road (nice cafe/bar area) and to mega mall iam/pm. And to donghu road, another area with cafe/bar.... More

I booked a 2 room service apartment and although I did not get a renovated unit, I am happy with the room. Room is spacious and clean for the price you paid. The only setback is the bed and pillows are too soft. It would be good for the management to consider to change these items. Wi-fi access is excellent... More

This time I got a renovated apartment - which I probably had stayed at in previous visits. It was quite well done - but the bathrooms were noticeably smaller. The kitchens were very nice, and the bedrooms were very tastefully decorated. As part of their promotion, the rates were very good. Breakfast was completely changed (for the better) - with... More

Very good location, only about 3 mins walk to the nearest underground station, and a mega shopping mall and art area are just within 15 mins walk (or the next underground station). We stayed in a 3 bedrooms apartment and the apartment is huge (around 1800 square feet). Price is reasonable and the apartment looks meticulous. Facilities in the property... More

This property is situated in an excellent location, and as part of it's 30th Anniversary promotion (and on-going renovation), the rates are also very attractive. We stayed at the same property two years ago and had a good experience, which was why we returned in December 2014. Other than a new lobby, cafe, gym and business centre, the rest of... More

I have stayed here many times. The location is good - walking distance to Metro, shops, eating places. Good clean apartments and friendly staff. This time I booked through Tripadvisor and not directly on their website, and was a little disappointed that they did not seem so friendly at check-in. The internet wi-fi also never worked while I was there... 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.
