“will stay again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

b4 my trip, i was choosing between this and another B&B which had an extremely good deal. it was a tough choice but i finally decided on magnolia becos the french concession area appealed to me. and i didn't regret my choice.

i stayed in the red room overlooking the road but it was quiet enough for a light sleeper like me. got wake up calls every morning from a bird in a cage kept by a neighbour (just outside the bathroom). housekeeper is a lovely friendly woman who helped me to carry my luggage up the stairs even tho i had not asked (contrast this with my experience in another B&B in nice where the owner just flatly refused).

1 good thing abt this place is its fairly flexible. i had to cancel 2 nights' stay at very late notice but I did not have to pay any additional rate unlike with other hotels.

Room Tip: red room is good for solo travellers. otherwise can b rather tight.

This made a perfect 1st stay in China. The B&B is in the middle of the French Concession which makes a perfect surrounding. We stayed in the red room, which is quite small(the smallest room in the B&B) but was very clean and had a good standard of bathroom. The breakfast was very good, we had the Chinese option but the Western options looked good too. The information provided the B&B on the surrounding area was very welcome.

Miranda booked our onward train travel to Taishan and from there to Beijing. This was invaluable and most appreciated.

The Perfect Place to be in Shanghai if like to feel the atmosphere of the Good Old days. Perfect surrounding. You have your own balcony and can breath the City. The breakfast room is small but cosy and you feel like at home

We enjoy very much our stay in Magnolia - The place is clean and the rooms are simple but very nice. The breakfast was also a very pleasant moment. The staff is very nice and always available for help.

The Magnolia is in a quiet section of the French concess, close to restaurants and subway. The owner and the housekeeper are helpful and very kind. Good bathrooms, wifi in rooms, fully functioning AC, and excellent breakfasts - coffee and toast and scrambled eggs. Would recommend with enthusiasm and will return here when visiting Shanghai. The rooms are a bit small, but since you will be out and about in glorious Shanghai not a probem.

This intimate B&B was a quiet and convenient stay within the French Concession district of Shanghai. The owner of the B&B was very well versed in English and helpful in answering questions. She provided a phone for use while in Shanghai, which can be very useful.

It is located about a 3 minute walk from Line 1 or 7 of the subway system, and about 10 minutes from line 10. The neighborhood has many wonderful restaurants nearby.

Breakfast was good but sparse, lacking any fresh fruit. But, there are a number of markets just outside the door where you can purchase fresh fruit very reasonably and bring back to eat for breakfast.

My husband and I had the Red Room, small but all the necessities were there. The property is an old house with about 5 rooms on the second and third floors. We faced the street but there was no problem with noise. The old French concession area is picturesque and has some good restaurants. It's close to two metro stations. Price for two in April was about $103 Candian and included breakfast.
