This is a hotel which is well hidden in a courtyard and has not a big number of rooms. I would recommend it for those who are tired from big chain hotels and look for something different. The beds are a bit low for Western standards, but quite ok for sleeping. Staff speaks very limited English. Two choices of breakfast...

We were recommended this guest house by a local to experience a different side of Shanghai (after having stayed at The Andaz last time) and we're very glad we experienced some time in the former French concession. The location of B'La Vii is great - easy to find in taxi from the airport, close to great restaurants & wine bars,...

I got the Kapok room which is on the ground floor (2nd least expensive type). The location is great, right in the heart of the French Concession with nice restaurants and bars within walking distance. Really feels like the heart of old Shanghai. Metro is a further walk away but still reachable. I love such boutique hotels compared to large...

The location is perfect in the French Concession. Never more than a 10 minute walk from a nice cafe (Marienbad), a good restaurant, and Eddy's bar is nearby too. You get a warm welcome and the entrance to the hotel - courtyard with pond, Thai restaurant on site - is charming, and the interior design and layout of the accommodation...

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.
