There were a number of things that made this place the best there is in Shanghai. First is its aunthenticity located in an apartment that houses 2000 Chinese locals. The second is the apartment that was well appointed, beautifully designed and with a great view over Shanghai. The third is its location being almost in the centre of the city while away from the crowds and main tourist spots. The forth is the service given by the wonderful Alex who is an absolute champion. Alex is the loveliest person and is perfectly suited to the job he does. He made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. I will definitely recommend this to others and believe it is the est place to stay in Shanghai. Hopefully we will return one day.

The CHAI Living Residences are all conceptually designed apartments within the Embankment Building, offering the comforts of modern life to guests with a taste for style and sophistication. As an alternative to a five-star hotel, CHAI Living strives to offer a friendly, "family-style" approach to staying in Shanghai.
