I had a big room. Old fashioned style. Felt really comfortable. Internet was working well. Staff was welcoming. Everything was clean and in a good condition. My room was located in the 2nd building. I heard the sound of the club/bar next to the hotel,...More
This is not the main hotel which has the same name but is at no.70 and is across the road about 30m away. This is the so-called business hotel. Rooms are ok and quite well equipped, if with rather old furniture and fittings. The bed...More
I was searching for a different hotel near the city center as I am sick of these faceless 5-star business hotels which are rather expensive. The Donghu Hotel is a historic building, perfectly renovated but still looking like in the 30th. Nevertheless everything is on...More

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.
