Can not recommend this hotel more. The location is only about a one to two minute walk to the metro. SH metro is so clean, fast, and convenient that we used it everywhere. Although I would not recommend taking metro from the international airport to the hotel by Maglev because after the train you need to change to Metro and...

I stayed here from 4/5 ~ 4/9, it was not easy to get a cab in the raining season. I was happy as the staffs there helped me to get a Uber, as I don't have a local account so it is not possible to pay with my mobile. Thanks to the great staffs. I will stay here again.

It's not easy to find a qualified hotel in China, even though there are tens of thousands of hotels in Shanghai. The service quality, in local Chinese mindset, is the put gold on door-side instead of switch heater good enough in winter. However, you won't see such problem in Somerset, they provide a real world class quality hotel in every...

Location was a bit in the quiet side, although if you know your way and enjoy walking, it doesn't really matter. I think it's pretty close to Tianzifang area, but it does require a bit of walking, and you need to know where you are going. Minimarket just across the street, coffee shop next door, a starbucks just around the...

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.
