I love Shanghai and this charming and elegant historic hotel is in the very centre of the most interesting part of the city. Inside this classic vintage hotel is beautifully decorated with cinematic objects from Shanghai’s colourful and exciting past. The rooms are comfortable and...More
The Mansion hotel houses a museum that highlights its history as a mafia joint around the 1900s. It is truly intriguing even to merely visit but the rooms, too are one of a kind. Floor 4 and 5 are currently finishing renovations (I did not...More
The carpets are so grotty you wouldn't want to walk on them (need both commercial clean as well as not vacuum cleaned). The water comes in through the ceilings at reception and through the corridors.

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.
