This hotel is set in old government buildings spread throughout a botanic garden setting in the centre of the French District of Shanghai. I was in the 'Club' facilities which were very 'old world' and very comfortable. My room was very large and overlooked the fountain from a large balcony on the first level, very comfortable and twice the size...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 December 2016

A complete oasis in Shanghai. From gardens to buildings to rooms, just a stunning and top class hotel. Had a large suite with a massive bathroom with separate shower large enough for two, clawfoot tub, two toilets, and usual InteCon amenities. Massive bed. Dark wooden paneling throughout. Stayed in the Club Intercontinental side. Take a walk through the gardens. Multiple...

I stayed in the Club Rooms which is a separate building to the rest of the hotel. The hotel complex is in a huge garden setting. All inside the French Concession and all walking distance to good sight seeing, restaurants etc. Gym and pool not great but open space, grass and gardens are great for kids.

Intercontinental Ruijin is my favorite hotel in Shanghai. Situated on a huge beautiful ground in the heart of french concession, it has a superb location.

I went to Intercontinental Ruijin for a conference. Upon arriving, I realized I had forgotten my phone in the taxi. The Chief Concierge, Tony Dai, not only provided excellent customer service but had the entire situation under control. After a few hours, I was able to retrieve my lost phone thanks to Tony's help. Thank you Tony for your service

I had a great first visit here, but my recent stay in April 2017 wasn't as great. Most of the experience was as it was last time, but this time I stayed in the main building (with the front desk) as opposed to a separate building). There were two issues: 1.

I live in Shanghai but have always driven by this property and been taken by its graceful architecture and sweeping lawns and fountains - so different from the usual city hotels in Shanghai.

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.
