My visit to Capella Shanghai was amazing. Every accommodation at this property located in the tree-lined streets French Concession neighborhood is a spacious and luxurious Shanghainese townhouse. It was wonderful enjoying my own private residence vs. just another hotel room in a big city.
Booked a villa for a party for 14 people to celebrate my friend’s birthday. The villa itself is well furnished in the old Shanghai lane houses configuration plus a little open space on ground level and the roof.
Catering by the hotel restaurant is good...More

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.
