Comfortable and extremely spacious room. Lots of space to settle in. There was always a very proficient bilingual staff person around to help with questions and arranging taxis, etc. The breakfast buffet was pretty good, a nice touch was the made to order omelette. Some of the food seemed a little stale though. Large bathroom, be careful with the shower...

It's not the most luxurious hotel... but so incredibly charming... it belongs in a romantic movie! It is timeless. I feel like I stepped out of a time machine into another place. I got to stay here and I loved it's antiquated charm. It is truly unique. It's not necessarily about it being fancy or anything... it's just like traveling...

The colonial history of this hotel is fascinating and the architecture is picturesque. The rooms are absolutely delightful and well maintained. The location was for us very convenient. The food is fresh and varied, well presented and suiting a range of tastes. The service was amazing - even though few of the staff spoke English they tried so hard to...

Awesome location and a Fairy Land kind of Hotel, I'd say :) The structure takes you back to the era somewhere around 1947... Restaurent is great, services are nice. Full Marks to this hotel :) Going to stay for some days more here..

Stayed there for 2 nights in November, hotel is at a neighborhood I grew up 20+ years ago. The room is decent and modern, bathroom toiletries were high quality and had everything you needed. The deco of the hotel is mixed with elegant and charm. The hallway has old pictures and China display. Breakfast had a good variety, western and...

I actually stayed at the Moller Villa Hotel around June 2015 when it was the rainy season in Shanghai, so there was an extra sense of romance on top of its aleady delicate atmosphere. People might worry that they'd be fooled by the promtional pictures of the hotel since they just could not look better. Castle-like architeture surrounded by the...

Ok, this is one of my favorite places in China (hotel wise). It's very well located, I walked almost everywhere from the hotel. The room was pretty extravagant, specially as a solo traveler, so no complains. Every afternoon a staff member would stop by to hand treats. The bathroom toiletries were high quality and everything else was on point. The...

Go to Möller's villa and enjoy your lovely afternoon tea with a great atmosphere, calm and peaceful green garden and the old architecture in the middle of Shanghai, 10 min walk from Kerry Centre. Or even stay at their hotel. A great miniature castle!👍😘💕

The Moller Villa is as quirky outside as the pictures make it look, but the hotel inside is a good standard hotel with all mod cons, thanks to sympathetic but thorough renovation. Mr Moller is thought to have built this Bavarian castle version of a doll's house for his daughter, and it is a unique building in Shanghai. It has...

An unbelievable Fairyland castle and gardens built in the 1920's for a little rich girl by her father now a boutique hotel. Impeccably restored to its original glory. It seems so out of place in this very modern city an escape. It is a historically protected property.

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.
