Despite numerous complaints and apparently a recondition this Hotel has the worst internet and wifi ever of any Hotel I've stayed in - even with limited access in China this is definitely rubbish and not capable of picking up any emails or streaming. Most of the cafes nearby are totally fine so really not necessary in today's day and age!

I have stayed at this hotel for the past few weeks, so i've had a good opportunity to use most of the hotel amenities. Unfortunately one of the main problems is that the staff speak little to no english, therefore if there is a problem then you have no way to communicate to get it solved, yes I could learn...

This hotel is located in the French Concession, right down the street from a mall, restaurant, and bars. The area is nice and not too touristy or crowded, but easily accessible to other sites via walking or subway. The room was clean, nice bathroom. WiFi doesn't really work, but this seems to be a common issue in China overall. Staff...

The location of this hotel is excellent, as part of the old French Concession and next door to an up market shopping centre with plenty of food options (both cheaper eateries and Michelin star restaurants). The old French Concession area is beautiful and very walk-able, with lots to see and do (and eat and drink!). However, the in-room comfort at...

Basically, the hotel is a non-smoking hotel. The train station is 5mins walk away and also the shopping mall. The main shopping street is just a further 5 mins away. The hotel is old. The rooms interior lightings were dark. Especially with their yellowish tint. They could have either more lightings or slightly brighter would be good. The breakfast is...

Great location near plenty of local and Western shops/bars/restaurants. I had a nice corner suite that had the usual trappings. Housekeeping could start cleaning rooms earlier in the day and there could be more reception staff who speak English more fluently. Breakfast isn't great and it's hard work to get a cup of coffee. But the WiFi is excellent and...

Very pleasantly surprised by the hotel and its location. Staff accommodating and professional. Justina at the front desk as our first room was way too warm. She showed us 3-4 rooms before we found one to our liking.

The building is beautiful and nicely decorated with a walking distance to the metro system to 2 different lines and the housekeeping needs serious improvement. The shower had mold that could be easily removed. QC should be implicated to make this hotel more desirable and attract.

Good location' near the edge of the old French concession area. Next to an up class shopping mall and subway station, easy to find food and close by to most destinations. But ... The building is showing its age, carpet has stains, and shower is getting tired looking. The staff here is non-responsive. Air conditioning is very well, its over...

The hotel is only a block of the main street, and provided easy access to IAPM Mall. This area is flush with ex-pats, and for western travelers it has both the shopping you would expect, and some of the best restaurants in the area on the top floors (with views). Free wifi and all of the amenities that you would...

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
