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...More
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...More
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!👍😘💕

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.
