Unfortunately when we arrived there was scaffolding all over the building and a terrible smell of paint in the room, particularly in the bathroom. It was old fashioned paint, full of chemicals and began to make me feel quite ill. We coped by keeping the bathroom door shut at all times. When we arrived there appeared to be no-one in... More

Angela and Kenny were very helpful with the reservations, car service to/from the airport and other questions. And the location is very good. BUT I thought the stairwell was dirty and cluttered and had chipped paint, and the entrance was completely uninviting (no sign, no front desk - just a desolate bar area that was NEVER used). The room was... More

As advertised, Quintet BNB was a perfect location for our 10 day stay in Shanghai. Located in the middle of the French Concession, we were able to access a variety of local food establishments, all within easy walking distance. Kenny and Angela are great hosts and did their best to accommodate our needs. We stayed in the Grand Cathay room... More

There are good restaurants and sites within walking distance. A good neighborhood for tourists. The staff provide a helpful list and map of nearby places to eat, shop and tour. Very helpful. And they give you the names of the major tourist destinations in Shanghai, in Chinese characters, to make it easy to use the plentiful and cheap cabs to... More

We only spent one night there, but enough time to really like the place. Our room was large, comfortable, well equipped with everything one might need, and very quiet. Nicely decorated, good bed, nice bathroom a few steps down. The location is in the heart of the French Concession, close to bars, restaurants, shops and the metro. Angela, the manager,... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and found the bed and breakfast very comfortable. We stayed in the Grand Cathay room and the pictures on the web site are accurate.

Lovely boutique B and B - checked in early Stayed in the loft room which was compact but everything was there that you would need. House itself is a little tired and could do with a lick of paint. Owners Po and Kenny really helpful, although forgot to leave us promised breakfast on our last morning! Great location for restaurants.

The BnB is very cozy and located in the quiet but trendy French quarter. The owner was very helpful and gave us good suggestions on how to spend our day. Note that, as other reviews have mentioned, the room we stayed in was tiny. It was fine for 2 people but it would be crowded for any more. We enjoyed... More

Great rooms. Well equipped and great decor. Spotlessly clean. Rooms are on the smaller side, but the hotel more than makes up for this is in an great location (in the heart of the French Quarter, near the metro and the streets are wonderful to walk round at night but private, set back from the street and quiet). Good breakfast,... 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.
