To start with, the location is pretty darn good. Everything else is poor to average. The room feels crowed and is old. The bathroom roof is very low, if you are taller then 6 foot, DO NOT stay here. The hotel is barely above motel 168 standard. I do not see how it can claim to be a four star...

Hotel is has poor amenities. Our group met at the lobby bar for drinks 1st night before dinner and they did not even have enough cold beers (we were the only group in the bar!) There is no proper restaurant - breakfast is in a function hall with buffet table along the side. All dining tables are for 8 persons...

Yan'an Hotel is not one of the finest hotels in Shanghai - but it is a good alternative for those on a budget. The public areas are lovely, and the hotel is clean - but the rooms are small, air conditioning can't keep up on hot days, and quality of service is variable. English is hit or miss. Breakfast buffet...

Yan'an hotel is on a very main street, so it was always convenient to get taxis even on those chilly winter days and nights. The reception desk is decently helpful, and some even speak a little English. They organised booking us taxis and calling the airports to find out which one we were meant to be going to, to fly...

I stayed in the hotel for 7 nights. It was comfortable and room service was good enough. Restaurant has a room service too, if you want to have your food at your room. But it closes at 10 o'clock. The hotel is closer to Shanghai Exhibition center /old one/ and locates in central part of Shanghai.

I am staying in Yan'an Hotel when writing this post, on a business trip and stay here for four nights. I did check before how the hotel was going to be and it seemed reasonable, even though some stories here were not so admirable. The hotel is (how I've understood) old fancy hotel from the sixties, renovated on 2006. In...

Booked the hotel online when going to visit the Shanghai World Expo - was really looking forward to the supposed 4-star hotel. When my wife and I got there, the staff were rude and seem to be in a world of their own. When we finally got our room key, we were told to go down the hall and make...

This is a nice hotel with a great location. And at reduced price at 500 RMB per night, it also provides value for money. The normal price at around 1500 is a joke. The biggest problem here as I see it is that all the staff seems to be very uninterested in the guests well being. Not one single person...

We were booked into this comfortable hotel at very short notice. We arrive early but they allocated a room after about 20 minutes. Breakfast was good and a walk in the formal garden at the back was relaxing. Staff were generally friendly. They kept our bag whilst we made a short trip elsewhere.

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.
