This boutique hotel/ guest house is located in a great city area- French concession. The subway is just a doorstep away and so are little boutiques, bars and cafés. If you like a bit of Chinese flair in your bedroom and want to be at...More
Really feel like I made a great find with this one. The location is right on Hengshen Lu, right in the middle of the party and restaurant scene, less than two blocks from many choices, as well as a starbucks.

Smack in the middle of the bar scene on Hengshan Road, this hotel has character and is a good value. I could hear loud music from the bar next door, but when I complained they upgraded me to a larger and very quiet room.
Good - location, room design and furniture. Room rates - from 388-588RMB.

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.
