Chai Living is definitely the most charming, comfortable boutique B&B you can find in Shanghai. The building is located near the end of Suzhou Creek where it meets Huangpu River. From the room, you have this memorizing view of Shanghai. I remember in the early mornings, I would watch the sun comes out behind the skyscrapers, and buses and bikes run through the bridge not far away from the building. At night, when the city lights up, sitting by the window in my Chai room with a glass wine, was a perfect way to slow myself down, enjoy and relax.
The mixture of art-deco building with a futuristic view right outside of your window, the modern comfort with charming interiors, a location few steps away from the historical Bund all made my stay with Chai an unforgettable experience.
Chai staffs are very professional and helpful to answer all my questions and requests. I can feel the people running and maintaining the place are genuinely friendly and happy to serve the guests. I just can't wait for the next time to be back there again! Let's hope more people will get to see and enjoy this wonderful spot in Shanghai!
