We will never forget our enjoyable week at the Ruijin. Built as the home of a late 19th Century French newspaper magnate, this is a walled, ten-acre estate filled with towering magnolias and broad green lawns surrounded by the intensely modern city of of Shanghai. My wife noticed that brides were having their wedding photographs taken on the property. As... More

This was a real surprise. Sure it's expensive for China but WOW! It's a really beautiful suite of buildings set in amazing grounds but right in the centre of China.

No doubt it is in the best location in the city center. The hotel is close to a few tourist spots, like Tianzifang, Xintiande and Huwi Hai Lu shopping district. They are around 10-30 mins walking distance. However the hotel campus is so large that it will take you 5-10 mins walk from lobby to reach the main gate. Opposite... More

Located in the city center; this hotel invokes a spirit of old Shanghai, it's proximity to the French concession is still very evident in the architecture and design of the hotel's grounds. Staff are attentive and friendly. Room service menu is a little sparse, but dinner was still good.

It seems located on good location which is close by Xintiandi, but subway station is not close to the hotel. Hotel is classic and antique, and even very calm in the center of city. :) Breakfast place is so satisfying!

Amazing Hotel in shanghai. Very clean and modern, but a classic design in a facility steeped in history. Beautiful grounds in the middle of a busy city. I was very impressed. Western friendly and right downtown. This is a low rise campus, not a tall modern building.

The hotel sits at the heart of a tree-circled compound; it has a European urban feel in the heart of Shanghai. It's very grand - from the magnificent lobby to the large spacious rooms. It's clean and comfortable with great customer service. Looking more closely, beneath the surface - less convincing. I spotted bare wires, with leached excrescences emerging from... More

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.
