This is apartment is in a great location, it is near to the Metro and has great accessibility to many attractive parts of Shanghai. The cleaner comes 3 times a week, so everything was kept very clean and tidy and she even does your washing! It was great to have a spacious apartment to move around in and I was very happy we'd chosen this rather than a hotel. There was good, helpful correspondence and instructions from the owner.
We spent 8 days in the appartment on a business/tourist trip to Shanghai. The location is excellent - 5 mins walk from a Metro station that gives you easy access to all areas of the city. The Metro is simple to use and the best way to avoid traffic congestion - and is also very cheap. Close by are plenty of shops, restaurants and bars - being in the attractive former French concession area. The 3 bed appartment has all that you will need for a short stay - fully equipped kitchen, 2 bathroooms and 3 bedrooms. A delightful cleaning lady comes in 3 times a week and will also do the laundry (and charge her battery-powered moped while visiting!). Great views at night from the balcony and on Sunday morning you can watch the Shanghai "Mr Motivator" putting the locals through their paces on the football pitch below from the safe distance of the 24th Floor.
We travelled to Shanghai with our two daughters (12 and 14 years). The apartment suited our needs very well. It has three bedrooms although the two girls decided to sleep in the same room (the third bedroom had a sofa-bed). It is well air-conditioned, which was essential as the temperature in Shanghai was in the high 30s. It is less than 10 minutes walk to the subway, a Costa Coffee and Starbucks are nearby. A supermarket and some nice restaurants are nearby, initially we did not understand the map supplied by the owner, which was not very clear, but soon found them.
The en-suite bathroom could do with a bit of care and attention (new shower head, bleach the bath, fix the towel rail) but nothing serious. There were two bathrooms.
We would certainly stay there again.

I would stay here again because
1. Location - near metro, good supermarket, coffee shops and decent restaurants
2. The owner and his employee were outstandingly helpful.... We emailed them questions and got replies within minutes
3. Comfortable, well equipped apartment - very comfortable beds, very good sofa, big tv, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave etc
4. Far cheaper than a hotel, especially for a family
We went to Disney, which is far away but an easy journey on the metro.
This place is not slick but homely, welcoming and comfortable.
Spacious appartment with 2 bathrooms. Good views..
We had one hitch which was well resolved by the owners.
