I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel. Let me start by saying that if you will only ever go to Shanghai a time or two then the Ruijin has to be a part of your trip. The 100 acre property in downtown Shanghai has a long and famous history. Beautiful gardens, incredible rooms and public spaces located in...

This is probably the most amazing experience I have had staying at a hotel. The buildings are stunning, so make sure you have a good walk around the grounds, you never would believe you are within the city! The multiple restaurants within the hotel grounds are all unique. I can tell why Mao made it his headquarters in Shanghai! Absolutely...

One of my favorite hotels in the historic French Concession quarter on the Puxi side of Shanghai. Book a club room to enjoy the fabulous lounge. Rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed.

This is a perfect hotel to stay if you want a feel of historical Shanghai in an luxury/modern facility. The hotel itself is more like an urban resort with large lawn and great health club - which is very rare in city center. It's definitely more low-key than other luxury brands on the bund. Food is great (although slightly more...

If you want a first rate hotel in expansive grounds within the French Concession this is perfect.

This was one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. The continental breakfast was ok. There weren't a lot of choices but it was adequate.

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.
