Good for those familiar with Shanghai and just need a place to stay for a few days. Expected more from all the positive reviews but was highly disappointed. Most of the staff are "cold" and unwelcoming. Definitely not worth the price! Could have stayed somewhere...More
If you already know the French Concession well, have no fears of getting yourself around in Shanghai, and like the idea of staying in an old place with only 6 or so rooms, then this is the hotel for you. It's a pearl tucked away...More
I stumbled upon this hotel while reading a review for hotels in Shanghai. I wanted something quiet and pleasant in the French Concession neighborhood. I found it! The Ke TangJian hotel was so cute. First, I had booked the attic single room and it was...More

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.
