Shanghai, China1 contribution
I booked the Middle House because of its fantastic location, proximity to the mall and restaurants and guest rooms which lived up to its photos. However I was blown away by the friendly service of its staff, particularly ms Vera Jin who not only upgraded my room but also offered the $100 usd amenities voucher, her English was perfect and saved me having to communicate in broken Chinese. I was so comfortable at this hotel i hosted my 84 year old grandmother and aunties for lunch , they too where very impressed by the friendly staff and the Christmas tree ! Would highly recommend this hotel to all travellers Henry

Joined a girls night out/staycation at the famous Middle House located in the heart of Shanghai. Unlike most major hotel chains, Middle House present a good alternative if you look for a more personal touch & unique hotel experience. I heard plenty of positive comments about this property & really looking forward to our stay. First impressions at check-in was excellent, staff are friendly & efficient, front desk manager Edwin patiently introduce room facilities, restaurant, pool etc to us in a very professional manner. Their wooden room keys came in a stylish personal cover which is another little surprise. Breakfast at Cafe Grey is fabulous, it’s made to order from an extensive menu, much better quality compare to typical buffet style. Evening cocktail was another highlight of our stay, the cocktail menu presented as a little story book, you can follow the voyage & try different cocktail to suit your mood. It an excellent stay overall & level of service we received went beyond our expectations, hopefully we will get together in Middle House again soon.

We had a lovely staycation for my husband's birthday. The staff were incredibly accommodating to our kid the entire time - from adding a baby bath to the big bathtub to helping my husband watch the kid while he toweled off at the pool. They even baby proofed the sharp corners in the room - really above and beyond! We ate at Frasca for dinner and Cafe Grey for breakfast, both were excellent and very accommodating to a messy kid. They offered Stokee Tripp Trapp high chairs in both venues! The walk in closet in Studio 60 rooms was big enough to hold our BabyBjorn travel cot and it had a full door we could close so after the baby was asleep we could still have the lights on and talk. And if you're not traveling with a kid, the service and the hotel are top rate. You won't stay in a nicer place while in Shanghai. Highly recommend!

Best things: The staff and customer service were wonderful, food and coffee were delicious (the Dandan noodles ate Cafe Grey - yum!), and the room and amenities were luxurious and sophisticated. Super comfy bed! Worst: Nothing! Everything was perfect. We stayed at The Middle House for 2 nights in December to celebrate my husband's birthday and our anniversary. We had an absolutely fabulous time - our best hotel experience in Shanghai by far. The hotel is vegan-friendly (not easy to find in Shanghai) and they offered to create a surprise birthday cake for my husband which was waiting in our room when we checked in. We were blown away by how delicious it was. They even made the white chocolate in the cake from scratch and were happy to share the recipe with me. The Italian restaurant downstairs was also lovely and they created a special meal for us when we had dinner there. Jacqueline (Director of Guest Experience), Lisa and Wendy (from the reservations team), Peter (from the front desk) and every single staff member at the hotel went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. I can't thank them or recommend The Middle House enough.

I have come to this hotel on a daily basis for over a year to use the pool and gym facilities, both of which are fantastic. It is safe to say I have had some sort of interaction with all of the staff at the hotel. The doorman, the lifeguards, the front desk staff, and everyone up to the top management are top notch. They make you feel at home on a daily basis. Like I said, I use the pool and gym facilities on a daily basis. The pool and gym facilities are always clean. Not only do they have facilities to help you live a healthy lifestyle while you are away from home, they also have air filters to make sure you are breathing clean air. If you are looking for a great hotel that makes you feel like you are at home, this is the place to go.

Dear John D, We are very pleased to read that we didn’t come across as one of the rather conventional hotels you find around town. We do indeed enjoy engaging with our guests we often also call friends. Home is where the house is 😊 See you hopefully soon again.
