I stayed at the hotel in March 2014, room 3403, a one bedroom executive room. The staff on arrival are very friendly Jenny and Anthony made sure that all my requested booking requests were available.

My wife and I stayed here for ten days in an Executive one bedroom apartment (1806) in late December 2013. I had made our reservations several months in advance and had requested a room on much higher level in order to maximise our views but it seemed the management made no attempt to accede to our requests which was disappointing....

I always loved the French Concession Road, nice shady trees crawling above the streets, I do not know but I always find peace just watching over these trees. The location of the apartment is accessible to almost everything and wherever you want to go to. We booked for 3 days but nothing fancied me..They are focusing on renovating a big...

Stayed at the Somerset for 4 days in March. I have to say from all perspectives, this is a great property to stay in Shanghai, located right in the heart of the former French Concession. We were a group of 4, and our friends had a small baby with them. For a group with a child, this is a very...

This is my 2nd stay in this hotel. The service from the staff is still good as the previous time. The cleaner is professinal and friendly.

I stayed at the Somerset for 6+ weeks in two different rooms. The first room on the first floor was a 'small but perfectly formed' apartment with a great kitchen, large bathroom and bedroom with a walk-in-robe that made it difficult to move home. The second room on the 24th floor had two bedrooms but the living spaces were smaller....

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.
