This is an old house that has been upgraded into a hotel. We loved the old world feel with all the modern conveniences. We had free WiFi as well as a 'smart' toilet - lifted the seat and flushed when required! The room was very large, and airy, although the carpet was a tad shabby. Fantastic shower. The rooftop terrace... More

I very much enjoyed our stay at the Mansion Hotel in Shanghai. Being originally from Shanghai, I am not unfamiliar with the streets and buildings of the cities, yet I was pleasantly surprised when I entered the hotel -- It was converted from an old "mansion" of one of the Shanghainese Tycoons from the early 1900s. The hotel has gorgeous... More

The prospect of staying in the former mansion of golden era Shanghai gangster was very appealing, particularly at the end of a quite 'authentic' trip around China. Unfortunately, we did not enjoy our Mansion experience too much. Part of the problem was that the top level was being refurbished, which meant the rooftop dining room and terrace were off-limits. The... More

Shanghai has so many great hotel options I'd give this a pass. I booked this on my 4th visit to Shanghai because I was traveling w/friends and we wanted to try something different; the large number of positive reviews misled me (or perhaps things have changed). The positives -- beautiful lobby, nice furniture in rooms; really gives you a feeling... More

Recently I stayed in the Mansion Hotel and was very impressed by the room and old world charm of the hotel. It is a very nice piece of Shanghai history and a pleasant stay. The rooms are large with very high ceilings, and the location is great - very central. Note, however, this is not a full service hotel so... More

There are a myriad of first world hotels to chose from in Shanghai, however this gem more than covers all of the modern requirements whilst taking you back to the world of old Shanghai. The rooms are large, well laid out, perfect for work or holiday and the bathrooms are huge. My room included a huge spa which I didn't... More

I booked this on Agoda for about half price and didn't have high expectations, but I was really impressed. This is an amazing hotel that brings you back to old Shanghai.

If you harken back to the pre- World War II days when Shanghai was the most exciting place in Asia and love antiques and memorabilia, the Mansion Hotel is definitely the place to stay.

If you are going to Shanghai and think what a hotel to choose, first the most important thing to decide it's which part of Shanghai you want to live. It's may be part of a modern skyscraper or an old town with low houses, tall trees and a very pleasant atmosphere. I chose the part named the French confession and... More
