Great hotel and we would recommend it for cozy room, friendly manager. The location was pretty good in Shanghai.The manager helped us a city trip and flight tickets, too. We enjoyed the breakfast although it was simple but tasty. We would recommend hotel for budget travelers.

I am not sure if the management has changed but this is the new name and new location of the Old House. We stayed recently at Kevin's Home in April 2012 for a week and enjoyed it very much. We had our whole family with us in Shanghai and so we rented one large room (big enough for an extra...

We selected this hotel based on the hotel's designation by Fodors'.....ignoring the negative comments on tripadvisor. As usual, this was a big mistake. We were seeking somethin that was small, not a large, international chain. However, we did not want to stay in a rundown, poorly maintained property. Although we had paid extra to book a large, superior room, we...

Thi sis lovely hotel on the far fringe of French Concession area. Downstairs is a restaurant affiliated with the hotel, A future Perfect. We enjoyed breakfast each morning and lunch on the day of our arrival. Food is good - not outstanding. The rooms and decor are lovely. The front desk is very accommodating. I would surely recommend this hotel...

We stayed at the Old House as a part of our honey moon and we really loved it! The staff was a little uninterested and less helpful than what you would expect in Asia, the breakfast average and served in a not so charming bar, but this hotel is all about the rooms. Absolutely beautiful!

If a hotel calls itself old house you expectations as to how modern the place is can't possibly be very high. Old house is just as the name implies, old, charming and homey. It is in a great location opposite the Hilton and with a very good restaurant next door. I usually went there for breakfast as breakfast at the...

We stayed here for 3 nights in the week before expo was opening. The renovations to the restaurant are still continuing which meant dust and building noises in the hotel. Work started at 8.30am and continued to after 6pm on Sunday. It seemed quieter on Monday which might be why it is taking so long. They said it should be...

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.

“The suites were bigger but not as pretty. However suites had clothes washers and were probably quieter because not above restaurant.”
