Highest marks for location and for quality of the room. Location: the value of the location is illustrated by the fact that the Untour breakfast food tour starts and ends very near this hotel, and never strays more than 2 blocks away. Nice area to walk around - lots of places to eat in a neighborhood with tree-lined streets, much...

Spacious rooms, old Shanghai feeling and great location! The bed was not the most comfortable but was fine. Stayed for one night after my flight was canceled. I would stay again for longer. The room was very clean and staff was helpful. Walking distance from lost of shops and restaurants.

I have stayed at The Mansion three times over the last year or so and have loved it for its unique decor and ambience and it superb location in the heart of the old French Concession. The bedrooms and bathrooms are sumptuous and the lobby a wonderful place to sit and relax while people watching. The only thing lacking is...

So this hotel has a history, apparently it used to be the headquarters for a Shanghai organized crime syndicate, but I don't have all the facts due to a language barrier. Anyway, the lobby is a veritable 1920's museum; the post-Victorian architecture provides the backdrop for a multitude of artifacts from the time the mansion served as a gang headquarters....

I am writing this from my room at 1am and they are currently cleaning the floors with high powered loud machinery. I went down to the front desk and they looked at me like I was crazy for complaining. You cannot sleep! Why on earth clean with loud machines at 1am? They also shut the entire lobby down today for...

This is an old house that has been upgraded into a hotel. We loved the old world feel with all the modern conveniences. We had free WiFi as well as a 'smart' toilet - lifted the seat and flushed when required! The room was very large, and airy, although the carpet was a tad shabby. Fantastic shower. The rooftop terrace...

I very much enjoyed our stay at the Mansion Hotel in Shanghai. Being originally from Shanghai, I am not unfamiliar with the streets and buildings of the cities, yet I was pleasantly surprised when I entered the hotel -- It was converted from an old "mansion" of one of the Shanghainese Tycoons from the early 1900s. The hotel has gorgeous...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed by the French architect Lafayette in 1932 and located in the vibrant heart of the historic French Concession, this luxuriously restored heritage boutique hotel offers the city’s most authentic experience of ‘Old Shanghai’. Formerly headquarters of Shanghai vice boss Du Yuesheng, the Mansion Hotel was once the nerve centre of an opium empire and scene of some of roaring Shanghai’s most decadent parties. Hundreds of artifacts and photographs attest to its colourful past, as you relax into its lavish modern-day incarnation. ... more   less
