I have travelled many times to Shanghai but stayed at the other side of the Huangpu River always. At a colleague's recommendation, I have decided to take the plunge and cross the river to The Langham Xintiandi (I am a creature of habit). What have I been missing all this while??? The hotel is simply fabulous; the enchanting scent, the warm welcome from the doormen or young boys rather, the great service from the staff at the Club Lounge, the glorious food at Ming Court and the beautiful terrace bar (great place to chill outdoor especially now the cool weather).
The location is just so convenient too. Across the street is the famous Xintiandi, plenty of restaurants and bars to hang out with my colleagues after work. Further down is a huge Xintiandi Mall where they have many local interesting designers, not cheap but very chic styles. Close to the hotel is Tianzifang, a very interesting arts and crafts enclave developed from a renovated residential area in the French Concession district. You can actually peeked into someone's kitchen! I found this shop "Pi Ling Ba Lang", (the shop name refers to the sounds of breaking glass) has beautiful china ware in modern Chinese style.
I will be coming back to this hotel as there is no other hotel I would rather stay now in Shanghai. Can't wait to try their afternoon tea in the lobby lounge......must be good as the place has been very crowded the 2 days I was there.
Both thumbs up for Langham Xintiandi.
