The hotel remains closed although the fabric of the building is still in place - it is now in serious need of maintenance (cleaning, painting etc).

This was my hotel of choice in Shanghai for several years - for the reasons outlined by other reviewers. Reasonable price, good location, quiet, and secure. Unfortunately it seems that the owner had some sort of disagreement with the authorities a year or so ago,...More

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.
