Quirky, hip, very cool hotel in a real Shanghai neighborhood.
The rooms are somewhat Japanese in flavor. Muted colors, big bathtubs.
The downstairs restaurant serves western comfort food. The bar is well stocked and the crowd seems to be mainly ex-pats.
Good, full breakfast in the restaurant.
There is a beautiful outdoor courtyard. Eating there must be fun. ( it was too cold for me to try in December)
There is a small, hip bar upstairs - perfect for a rendezvous or tryst.
Staff are very helpful and friendly
Overall a lovely civilized place to stay.
