This a lovely accommodation in the heart of The French concession away from all the street hassle of staying around the Bund. It makes a great base from which to discover the surrounding area.
I stayed in the Oriental Pearl and was delighted by the lay out which was spacious and full of character. A mere ten minutes walk to some great dining venues, a microbrew bar (Shanghai Brewery) and jazz at the Cotton Club around the corner. (In case Shanghai proper gets a little much)
One of the nicest places I have ever stayed. I did have to move to a very grand 5 star hotel over the weekend for work, and would have swapped it in a heartbeat to be back.
