My wife and I stayed at the Chna Mansion Hotel for three nights in May (during Labor Day holiday).

In today’s world, we are never lack of luxury hotels. Especially, as you stay in UAE, there are so many 6 stars or even 7 stars hotels all around and there will be more and more. The Jumeirah, Rotana, the Shangri-La, Hyatt, JW Marriott and Le Méridien etc, you will find they are more or less same with big hall,...

We asked our friends in Shanghai where we should stay when we came to visit them. We asked for a place that was different from the 5 star hotel's we usually stay at. They said they had the perfect place and left it up to them. I am very thankful I did, as we wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere...

Being a member of SHL, this hotel totally failed our expectation. We stayed for 2 nights only. The rooms look nice, but when you look closer, you can see that they used cheap material to pretend that they are luxurious. Some of the decorations are simply not right, such as the paintings on the bathroom wall, and the plant in...

I think the guest misunderstood what was going on. New Police rules stipulate that "Hotels are only allowed to store luggage for inhouse guests. Once a guest has checked out the guest must be responsible for their own belongings". Add to this the police were inspecting the premises at the time. We are a law obiding Hotel and always conform...

I must admit that I was a little nervous about arriving in Shanghai alone, but all that changed when I saw the limousine driver from China Mansion Hotel holding up a sign with my name on it. From then on I was in heaven. From the moment I stepped into the romantic historical lobby I knew I had made the...

I'd be lying if I said that our heart didn't sink a bit when we entered the China Mansion hotel. A musty smell hangs in the air, and the thick carpets, and proliferation of photos, momentos and 'period' pieces leaves one weaving through the lobby. But I can honestly say that by the end of our trip, I wouldn't have...

Excellent service quality assurance with the aid of New Zealnd ambassador Samuel Finnerty, who made this experience exceptional. His wealth of knowledge for a social experience and organisation made this trip comfortable and a pleasure to be home away from home.

My partner and I visited Shanghai over the Chinese New Year holiday when the city was absolutely cold and freezing. The China Mansion Hotel provided us however with a refuge to keep us warm during our brief stay. The hotel is a gem in the middle of a city known more for high-rise glitz and glamour offered by sterile hotel...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed by the French architect Lafayette in 1932 and located in the vibrant heart of the historic French Concession, this luxuriously restored heritage boutique hotel offers the city’s most authentic experience of ‘Old Shanghai’. Formerly headquarters of Shanghai vice boss Du Yuesheng, the Mansion Hotel was once the nerve centre of an opium empire and scene of some of roaring Shanghai’s most decadent parties. Hundreds of artifacts and photographs attest to its colourful past, as you relax into its lavish modern-day incarnation. ... more   less
