Old House
Ranked #31 of 778 Shanghai B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 24, 2008

After some business trips within China I was pleased to stay in an old fashioned but nice hotel. Location is good, rooms are nice and quiet. Everything is decorated in a pleasant way. Staff is friendly. The breakfast was ok, the salad in the restaurant really good. In sum it was a good hotel. Especially for people woho like the 1930's.

The Old House Inn is a rare find in Shanghai - it's got colonial charm, is in a quiet laneway and is decorated in an understaed but lovely way. It's on the edge of the French Concession area, which is central and full of tree-lined streets, trendy cafes and good bookshops. The next door restaurant, which serves breakfast, seems upbeat and trendy but the inclusive breakfast was a little disappointing - given they're extensive and delicious sounding breakfast menu (if you pay).

I was looking for traditional style Chinese hotel with modern comforts, reasonably priced, in the French Quarter and found it at the Old House. The reception staff speak good English and are very helpful with directions and recommendations. The beds are a bit hard but the room was furnished with beautiful old furniture and the bathrooms are very modern and clean. It's in a cute little st, off a main rd and close to a cafe with capuccinos. The hotel offer an airport transfer service that you can pre-book directly with them by e-mail. I would definitely stay there next time I'm in Shaghai.
