“a unique experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2010

This is not a hotel for everyone, but it really is a unique, charming place, centrally located in an old colonial villa in Shanghai's historic French concession. There are no TVs in the rooms (although there are a couple of lounges equipped with cable TV), and if you are expecting all the amenities then this is not the place for you. But if you want an opportunity to stay in a beautifully restored colonial villa in a quiet but conveniently-located neighborhood, then this is the place for you. They serve Chinese breakfasts, which may also not be fore everyone, but they generally choose Chinese breakfast items that are more-or-less suited to a Western palate.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2007

This place offers rooms and facilities just a little bit nicer than what you would expect from a backpacker's hostel, but for some reason seems to be getting away with charging four star prices. This was my last stop in China, and was by far the worst value for the money of my entire trip. I stayed in far, far nicer rooms in China that cost a fraction of the price. The house itself is charming, but the rooms are priced way out of line for what you get.
