This apartment hotel could be a steal - nice location, good basic infrastructure, and huge size units by any standards. But whoever manages it seemed to just want to manage themselves out of business entirely. It seemed that nobody cares! :( The front desk reminds me of customer service in the 1980s, where you are a bother to them. You... More

The earlier reviews are true, and to date, Jun 2015, there is absolutely no improvement. 1. Aircon in the main living space works but is noisy in one room and doesn't work at all in another. Maintenance was called in and guess what? They said that the aircon is old, so noisy, and the other they also don't know why... More

One of the worst hotels! We are not picky when it comes to hotels, but this one's really below low standards! Service is super terrible! They cannot do anything with whatever you need. We booked a 2 bedroom suite, with extra bed as we are 5. When we arrived, which was around 9pm, we entered a room with no extra... More

Looks good and not bad of a locatioin, excellent coffee shop and Italian Restaurant across the street, however, after leaving the lobby it gets worse. The rooms were dirty, beds hard and apartment was in need of general maintenance, which it looked like hadn't been done for some time. Terrible service at the front end, no english speaking staff and... More

On the outside it seems like an excellent place, but as soon as you move in you'll realize you've made a terrible mistake. While it labels itself as an international hotel, it only has one English speaking person at the front desk(Her English is very good and she has incredible patience.) Even if you are able to speak Chinese (I... More

Stayed here about 3 months ago, and one of the three elevators wasn't working. Was there again last week, and not only had the first elevator not been fixed, but a second one was out of commission as well. Seems like the management is letting the place fall apart. Will be staying elsewhere on my next trip....

My family stayed here for almost a month. It was a two bdroom unit with two baths. There's a small kitchen with a fridge. We actually stayed in two different units. One was more updated (i.e. flat screens, larger fridge, lighting) than the other. There's also a sofa in the living room. There's daily maid service or twice a week... More

I stayed here for 3 months, I think I paid about 6-700usd per month. I had a king sized room, which is basically a hotel room, with love seat, and a tiny kitchen which was functional.

If you want to stay near the French Concession, near good services, and need a kitchen or apartment-style accommodation, then this is a great option. I spent several weeks here in March-April 2009 for personal business. I hunted high and low for a reasonably priced apartment, and this was a definite winner! There are many serviced apartments in Shanghai, but... More

Stayed at the La Residence for five nights in April. It seems to be catering for the mainland/Chinese mid to luxury market and perhaps for those on timeshare schemes and expats on longstay. Firstly, finding info on the hotel was difficult and the hotel website is different from the name of the building! All in Chinese too. Before I go... More

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighbourhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
