I stayed in a "Gallery Grand Suite" at the hotel and the room was very spacious and comfortable. The building was originally an old art deco apartment block and is very characterful. Located in a quiet part of the former French concession area, it is...More
We went to Gallery Suites Hotel for few nights with my girlfriend. It was a perfect stay for visiting the city. The location was great, few minutes to the metro so really near the center.

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.
