Really enjoyed myself. Excellent access to Metro. Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was a nice cross section Chinese and Western food. Gym adequate. Pool looked nice but did not swim. Surrounding neighborhood had several delightful surprises. Did not fee like I was in a huge city.

It is a nice apartment , very well clean and it is recommended to stay with Family. The breakfast was only local type which was not my choice and the swimming pool was nice but water temperature was cold for kids. Location seems not the best but relatively OK to my consideration.

Good location and cleaness, they have what we look for our business trip. Since it's quiet location, taxi driver could not find the place some time. The break fast could be improved, I always walk and grab coffe at the coffee shop instead of having break fast at the hotel.

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.
