However, bed is still consider ok not so much dust even though abit hard. Bathroom is standard, cleanliness is consider ok. The wall is quite thin so you can hear...

as I am visiting Shanghai frequently I was looking for a place to return to, and I found it: The DONGHU hotel on Donghu Lu, opposite of Shanghai Brewery and Liquid Laundry. Rooms are smal but confortable, service is friendly. For 400 CNY per night you get good value for money

There are two Donghu Hotels on the same road opposite of each other. This review refers to the old mansion which was just extensively renovated. This hotel has a distinctly Chinese feel to it - it is not managed by one of the big hotel chains. Rooms are built to the highest quality standards, on par with the best 5-star...

The hotel is decent and the staff is friendly. The rooms are not very modern but are well kept, if you are a tourist that is planning to stay most of the time outside its good option. It has a gym (very old and rotten machines) and a decent big pool. In overall by price and location is a great...

There are 2 on the same road but I imagine same treatment for the 2. Extremely unpleasant 'welcome' at the desk, room was ok but smelled of stale cigarette smoke and the breakfast was unbelievably bad. Every platter was a few days old chinese food, bugs flying out when you lifted the top and table clothe on every table was...

Good location near metro line, wonderful comfort, cosy style, excellent Chinese food. This hotel takes pride in its atmosphere of days gone by in aother Shanghai in the heart of the French conecession. Staff speak excellent English.

Beside the excellent location, not too many good things about the hotel. Old and dirty, very noisy, very thin walls. Main building of the hotel is in revamping since few years as I understood. Only an annex of the hotel is functional.

The hotel is located in a distinctive district and is surrounded by a lot of nice restaurants and pubs and it is only 5 minutes walking far from the nearest subway station. The room looked a little bit worn out even if it was clean enough. The bed was uncomfortable as the mattress was hard like a stone. Good free...

Looking for an authentic Shanghai experience but with the addition of young hip expats living the foreign dream then the Donghu and this part of Shanghai could be for you. The hotel is in what used to be the French Concession and so the area has a historical feel. It's quite close the the Bund which if you go to...

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.
