The hotel was in a great location near Nanjing road shopping. It is need of a refurbishment. Breakfast was included but questionable quality. It was generally clean, but not really clean. Staff were friendly. The grounds were small but interesting. Carpets are worn and wifi was awful.

The bedroom was comfortable but the good experience stops there - breakfast was so bad - you would not give it to your pet.... restaurant is a tent - and the salad was a week old - bread was hard - and the service was slow and ignorant... real bad experience

An excellent place to stay. Great location- being handy to the city and in walking distance to most places or transit lines. The staff as per Shanganese style were both friendly and efficient. The rooms were wonderful and had that old world charm about them. They were filled with antique style chattels . The bathroom was modernised with a large... More

The Pei Mansion is not a 5 star modern hotel with no character - but that is exactly why we chose it. We wanted a unique hotel with character that reflected the "personality" of Shanghai and that's exactly what we found at Pei Mansion. The hotel has a "faded grandeur" that is appealing and distinctive. The hotel rooms & bathrooms... More

It's nice to stay in a very chinese style hotel, the room are big and very comfortable but I cannot say the staff was friendly nor helpful. And the service and the food were just very bad. But the area is cool....

This hotel was like nothing I had been in before. A tiny property down narrow alleys and lots of traffic. A beautifully decorate period piece occupying such a tiny footprint - with a few floors for rooms. Lovely antique glass fronted cabinets displaying antiques or bath robes (who knew). Lots of dark wood, all antique and solid Asian heritage. I... More

The rather old mansion hosts very nice rooms that are kept in old traditional style. They offer all possible amenities that a visitor to Shanghai wants to expect who does not like to go to large hotel chains. The service is rather simple but the breakfast quality acceptable. Language wise don't expect too much English but they speak enough to... More

I found this hotel onilne and was very excited to stay here after reading the reviews. After staying here for 4 nights, I've found the reviews to be completely different to reality. The hotel conditions are poor, breakfast is terrible, and wifi connectivity is patchy. The room is average, everything looks OK but doesn't work. Not worth the value and... More

Interesting history, location and lovely accommodations in this traditional Chinese mansion. Be sure to ask if they are holding any events. . .as the lobby gets blocked off for use and breakfast is brought to your room and it is required to use the side entrance. Not as memorable/enticing when using the side entrance each day.

Great location and beautiful fixtures and fittings, in an Art Deco building full of history and character. However there were many staff who seemed untrained. I was unable to get recommendations for a local restaurant. The breakfast waitress was unable to operate the coffee machine. The check out staff struggled with the credit card machine. The laundry was delayed in... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Originally built in 1934, the building was designed for the family of the famous architect I.M. Pei (Louvre Pyramid, Paris). The PEI Mansion with its lush garden, is a luxurious oasis set in middle of downtown Shanghai. With its unique historical heritage, the PEI Mansion captures the essence of old Shanghai, a period when this great city was considered the ‘Paris of the Orient’. The building design reflects this wonderful by gone era with its graceful fusion of Classic French and Asian architecture that made Shanghai one of the world’s most beautiful and elegant cities. ... more   less
