Recently I stayed in the Mansion Hotel and was very impressed by the room and old world charm of the hotel. It is a very nice piece of Shanghai history and a pleasant stay. The rooms are large with very high ceilings, and the location is great - very central.
Note, however, this is not a full service hotel so dont expect the niceties and conveniences you get from a full service establishment in regards to amenity. You will not get 24hr room service, and they only have two Chinese restaurants (before they quite a good roof top resturant serving great steaks, but this has gone.). Internet stability when I stayed there was on/off, and breakfast quality is very bad. The concierge was very good, but after that the service was generally non-attentive and poor. For this reason I found the value of the hotel to be poor.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Designed by the French architect Lafayette in 1932 and located in the vibrant heart of the historic French Concession, this luxuriously restored heritage boutique hotel offers the city’s most authentic experience of ‘Old Shanghai’. Formerly headquarters of Shanghai vice boss Du Yuesheng, the Mansion Hotel was once the nerve centre of an opium empire and scene of some of roaring Shanghai’s most decadent parties. Hundreds of artifacts and photographs attest to its colourful past, as you relax into its lavish modern-day incarnation. ... more less
