BEWARE WHEN BOOKING DIRECT WITH HOTEL!!! MANAGEMENT IS UNSCRUPULOUS! DO NOT DIVULGE YOUR CREDIT CARD DETAILS TO THEM! We had to turn back from Llhasa due to the riots and found ourselves in Shanghai. We called Old House Inn on the day we arrived (Friday) to check if they had any last minute rooms available for Friday to Sunday. After... More

A very private, calm and peaceful house with excellent exterior and interior design. The service is personal, helpful and warm. Two minutes walk across Chashu Road, there are lovely restaurants and bars. Walking inside the small streets away from the main road near the restaurants will lead you to some very interesting residential house built around 1920. Ten minutes walk... More

We wanted an alternative to the megachain hotels, and our first choice (Hotel No. 9) was booked,so our agent found this. We loved the antiques, the charm, etc. We had a large room on the second floor with a King size bed - and yes, the traditional cement mattress. I guess you'd have to stay at the Sheraton for a...

Had a great stay at this hotel. The rooms were big and had great interior design. The service was also excellent and the staff was very friendly and accomodating. The hotel restaurant was also very interesting. It was very modern and hip, a stark contrast from the supposed-Chinese-inn atmosphere of the hotel. Food was delicious, although the free breakfast got... More

Quickly: - Boutique hotel - GREAT restaurant attached - Spotless very sparely, but chic-ly decorated rooms - 12 minute taxi ride to The Bund - Staff driver who will pick you up and organize day trips It's called the Old House Inn because it's in a very cool OLD HOUSE. If you're looking for a non-corporate and more charming place... More

This hotel was highly recommended as a gem in Shanghai, and while I can't quite agree that it's what Shanghai needs more of, it is a unique experience. I was travelling on business and stayed for 5 nights. I arranged a pick-up service from Pudong airport, but they weren't waiting for me when I arrived. I phoned the hotel to... More

Located in the middle of the French Concession, the Old House is in a good location that ins't in the center of the city hustle and bustle. The rooms were nice and clean, but small, with typical Chinese mattresses (i.e. extremely firm). The hotel, unfortunately, is adjacent to a restaraunt, which can be quite loud. It seems like our room... More

My young cousin who lives in Shanghai booked this for my son and me, so it was certain to be trendy. The room was a little small, and we had to share the bed. But it was clean and the bathroom was reasonable, and the water hot but of variable pressure. I did use the heater a little even in... More

Appreciate the comments of the previous reviewer, but my experience of the Old House is that it is a gem of a hotel. The rooms are minimally furnished but with four poster beds and traditional (or at least traditional style) furniture it makes for a unique experience away from some of the bland chain hotels. The staff are friendly and... More
