I recently booked this hotel as a surprise 'staycation' for my partner's birthday. I contacted the hotel a couple of times before our stay, asking for location details, breakfast details (we are both vegans) and also mentioning that this was a surprise for his birthday. Each time, I received a prompt, detailed response, super helpful. When we arrived to check in, we were greeted so warmly, even on the elevator up to the room, we received a 'happy birthday!' As we walked into the beautiful room (with a fantastic view), we were met with balloons, birthday cake & fruit, a card and a beautiful gift of a scented candle. I honestly couldn't believe this effort and my partner was astounded! We stayed for 2 nights, and the room was the height of luxury: large, comfortable bed, fantastic shower, awesome blue tooth speaker, complimentary mini-bar. And what a great city view! Breakfast is a la carte and the staff were fantastic at understanding our vegan requirements - we had lovely sourdough toast with avocado, grilled tomatoes & potatoes, fresh juice, coffee with oat milk and fruit. So tasty & filling. We didn't eat dinner at the hotel, but later discovered that they offer vegan options too! We took full advantage of the great swimming pool, sauna & steam room, and also (as it was the moon festival) a trip to the roof garden to look at the moon. I cannot praise this hotel highly enough, the standard of service, the amenities, the design - just fantastic!

Hotel's Favorite
There are so many good things to say about The Middle House that this short review could easily become the length of a novel.  First off, for several years now we have treated ourselves to 5-star stay-cations in Shanghai once or twice a year.  We have stayed in some wonderful places and we always look forward to the 5-star service we receive on these stays.  Without any hyperbole, The Middle House has broken the star system.  If some of these other places can claim 5 stars, then a new 8-star category should be created for The Middle House.  It is, hands down, the best hotel experience we have ever had. The hotel – An unassuming building from the road, it has absolutely beautiful décor.  From the gorgeous chandelier upon entrance, to the bamboo inspired walls to the layout and furnishings in the rooms.  Top notch all around. The location – In the past we have usually stayed at hotels that allow for Bund or Pudong skyline views which is one reason it took us so long to stay at The Middle House.  Those views were not missed in the slightest.  It was actually refreshing to get to see a different skyline and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the West Nanjing area.  Plenty of shops and restaurants in the area and lots of places to just stroll around and take in the sights. The service – This is where The Middle House goes from 5-stars to 8-stars.  Staff were not just helpful, they anticipated everything we might need/want.  Fanny and Sally were unbelievable.  They helped us book our Pawcation stay (in celebration of our rescue dog Snickers’ 8th birthday) and prepared so many surprises in our room for both him and us.  Once we arrived, Jacqueline, Peter, Edwin and the entire staff continually checked in on us and Snickers making sure we were enjoying our stay.  Coming inside from walks, front desk staff we hadn’t even met would greet us by name and wish Snickers a Happy Birthday!  The restaurant, both in the hotel and Frasca in the residence building next door, were wonderful.  Even with so many restaurants in the area, we never ate outside of the hotel.  The people working at The Middle House are proud members of the hospitality industry and they know their craft extremely well.  We have never experienced such exceptional service anywhere in the world. If you’re going to stay anywhere in Shanghai – stay at The Middle House.

We had an amazing stay with Jacqueline and her team at The Middle House. Mia greeted us warmly when we arrived and set the tone for our stay beautifully. We have a 2 year old who was very excited to find his own bed, a ball pit, a new teddy and some toy cars in the room upon arrival! All the exciting new toys were amazing for us too as we could relax whilst he played. Despite the hotel being nearly at capacity for the holidays, it never felt crowded and the service was just as exemplary as it always is. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts on the terrace at Café Grey and had a wonderful dinner at La Frasca, their Italian restaurant. The pool was also quiet enough for a relaxing read, some uninterrupted laps and our son absolutely loved playing in the bubbles in the warm pool. A truly relaxing and luxurious gem in the heart of downtown Shanghai. Until next time…

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights. On the second night there was a huge bug so we switched to anotehr room with same layout at 4th floor. The hotel manager offered us free breakfast as an apology. While there's no bug in the second room but the shower went wrong...it took 5-10min to run hot water and the temperature was not stable. Water pressure is much lower. In general I'm not very satisfied with the stay. You can easily find a hotel with more stable room quality when stay in Jing'an. Pros: great location, decent bar and stylized decoration.

I stay in The Middle House every time when I am in Shanghai, Here makes me feel like home. The house located in the heart of Shanghai, walking distance to many main shopping malls and Jingan Temple. If you have no idea of what to eat in the morning, Cafe Gray Deluxe offers you the best breakfast menu, it includes many western and Chinese breakfast dishes, and they are really tasty 😋 The restaurant Frasca is one of my favorite Italian restaurant in town, if you are looking for fancy chinese cuisine, Sui Tang Li will be your best choice! At night , starting your Shanghai night life with a house- signature cocktail in Cafe Gray Deluxe will be amazing! The House staffs are really warm and friendly, they always concern me about my staying in house. I will recommend you to stay in the Middle House when you’re in Shanghai, because you will feel home, not in hotel. 镛舍是我每次前往上海的首选。镛舍的装潢很有特色,古典东方气质下难掩西式浪漫,琳琅满目的艺术品让人仿佛置身美术馆。 镛舍有几家餐厅是我的心头爱,意大利餐厅Frasca是我午餐的首选,homemade 提拉米苏是我心中的沪上最佳;随堂里也是上海鼎鼎有名的精致中餐,菜单时常推陈出新,总会带给我惊喜! 居舍前台很有礼貌,有问必答,也时常问候我住的怎么样。我一点都没有觉得我像一个游客,却像在家一样自在、温暖。

I live right across the street but would just pop over for a staycation every once a while. Well organized room, delicious food options, attention to details, friendly staff… so many reasons for one impromptu visits after another! It is a very special place that makes you feel taken care of. Not all premium hotels can deliver this but Middle House actually makes an effort to tend to your every need. Talk to Mia at the front desk as she might give you a very pleasant surprise!

The Middle House, like other House collectives, always gives you a sense of home. Located in the busy business district of the city center, the hotel offers an excellent place for you to take a deep breath after an exhausting long day. Thanks Edwin for the warm service. I look forward to coming back soon!

I would say this is definitely my best experience & top choice every time if any anniversary. It is My husband birthday today and we are here for family trip again. And as always, it feels great since the first step into Middle house, and cheered by great manager Denis Krupp, who is so nice , not only always being so considerate and caring , but also enthusiastic and sincere to everyone passing by. I have be said hello many times since we first came here, and it’s always nice to see people sincerely loving his work and doing it well, which you can feel and tell just by the face the tone they talk. Also I could not express more appreciations to Mia Wang, she’s quite a passionate girl which always feel like an old friend. She has been so sweet to our daughter and now she has grown up as a shy girl but always happy to hug “sister Mia”. Great to have her in our journey. Even if she’s off work, still always available to support any questions. We sincerely love our experience here and be grateful for the nice feelings and service of great team in middle house ! You should always give it a try if you wanna stay around Nan Jing west road ! 非常好的体验 每次都像回家 感谢Denis经理,高大帅气的德国帅哥 还有阳光开朗的Mia小美女,服务超贴心! 前台小哥哥们也非常主动帮助 每次特殊节日都会来的地方 充满快乐和惊喜!

There is no place like The Middle House for me. 

From their top management team to the lovely housekeepers - they all have only one thing in mind - what is best for their guests. 

Their warmth, thoughtfulness, and professionalism are gifts I would always hold dear to. 

 Edwin who walked me to the local hospital late one night. His resourcefulness in fixing my idiotic and OCD requests. 

Mia, her big smiles, always proactively anticipated my needs. 

 Jacqueline, in her super powers, made sure I could escape back to Hong Kong in the midst of an escalating lock down in Shanghai. Her ingenuity in my birthday surprises and inhuman abilities to work 24/7.

 My beautiful housekeeper, who would notice my changing habits and re-arranged the details accordingly. 

 During the very harsh COVID lock down in Shanghai (Spring 2022), they went above and beyond expectations. Up through their GM, Mark Passmore, they locked themselves in with us - some leaving behind their families/loved ones. I saw the best of humanity radiating through them. They did their best to comfort us, to keep us fed and entertained. 

 More of them came back to get locked in with us as the lock down escalates.

 Denis, Martin, Mark, the two Rachels, Rebecca, Jessica, Nicole, Marcus, Gavin, SuYen, Jason, Derrick, Sean, Katherine, Kenny, Mary, Gary, Faye, Gordon… the security, engineer and IT teams who made sure we are safe and our lights are working. The spa team and the warm swimming pool guards…. The list is endless.

 No words could appropriately describe my gratitude to all of them. 

I am indefinitely attached to The Middle House.
