When I travel to Shanghai, I usually stay at Okura Garden because I really like the hotel and grounds. I have stayed here four times in 2016, yet the past two stays were not ideal. What's lacking is the service aspect of a 5-star hotel - although the hotel is impeccably clean and has good amenities, at times the front... More

Apart from the really hard beds we fully enjoyed the hotel. There isn't alot of things for our four year old, but the garden space was sufficient for play.

Japanese hotel, with Japanese toilet :) A little bit dated, but still amazing rooms and service. At a very hip area in Shanghai, 5min walk to metro station, shopping center and little designer shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend over Pudong area for young professionals. Also check out the top bar for cocktails!

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.
