Humble and exceptionally cool, this fully furnished house is on the 1st floor of a 2 story standalone with a nice garden in the heart of French Concession.
A Chinese girl's flat with high speed internet, cool layout and a comfy mezzanine bed, it's the perfect spot for anyone looking for a very cool, very quiet, but very central place to experience the best of Shanghai. Located in the heart of the most happening neighborhood in the city, everything you need is within walking distance, French Concession, Xintiandi, Sinan Mansion, Tianzifang, etc. It's easy to access subway Line 1 as well. Transportation in Shanghai city center is fairly convenient. Taxis are plenty and because they are so cheap they are widely used, but of course you can choose to use subways. The nearest subway station is 10 min walking.
This is a very special place with an amazing vibe. See it and you’ll understand right away. The apartment is truly a unique space. It's very difficult to find another location quite like this one in Shanghai!!
Yan's place is in the perfect location, on a lovely tree-lined street in the French Concession. The entryway needs some work, but the interior of the apartment itself is quite nice, with lots of space, a private garden, and a laundry room. Inside, it is sunny and you can't hear any street noise whatsoever. However, the upstairs neighbors are early risers, so this may not be an ideal location for light sleepers who wish to sleep late. But why would you want to when all of Shanghai is at your doorstep?
Yan's apartment was amazing. It's a hidden (literally) gem that consists of a well designed space with quirky and tasteful fittings. It's in the best possible location to explore Shanghai and Yan's recommendations were great.
Had an awesome stay with Yan this week. Really appreciated her waiting for me to arrive even though it was 10:30pm when I arrived.
Place was very clean and homely - very well heated and loved all of the "special touches".
Location was brilliant and Yan was thoughtful to leave a metro card for me to load and use for my stay.
Did not do any cooking at all as her place is literally a stones through from the nicest Chinese food you will ever find :)
Will definitely recommend a stay in this beautiful and thoughtful girls' house - miss it already! JE
I had a wonderful time at Yan's. She was a wonderful, generous, helpful host, and her flat is everything I could have wished for: clean, quiet, bright and sunny, great vibe, and in about the best neighborhood I can imagine for getting to know Shanghai. I look forward to my next visit to Shanghai and definitely look forward to staying at Yan's again.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Yan's lovely home for 4 nights. From the very start I knew this Airbnb stay would be a great experience. Yan was extremely accommodating, hospitable, and an all around nice down-to-earth person. The communication was also easy and clear. Living in her old Shanghai Lanehouse really transports you back in time. It feels like your very own home in the center of town. I would recommend future guests to stay here in a heart beat! Thanks Yan!
Yan was very helpful in getting me oriented to life in Shanghai. She even lent me an old phone for my convenience. Her flat was clean, cozy and convenient to the underground. Why stay in a hotel when you can experience life in Shanghai from a flat in the historic French Concession area?
I had a good stay. She was very helpful and I will stay again. I enjoyed living for a week in the street
Yan is a nice host. the apartment is in a nice street. The house is a typical old chinese house with all the kitchen places outside
Yan is an amazing host with an amazing place in the French Concession neighborhood. She is easy to communicate with throughout the reservation process and when we finally met, she is really easy-going and friendly. She had a welcome packet upon arrival describing the neighborhood and places to see and eat which is very useful for a first-time visitor.
Her place was very spacious and a perfect starting point to getting around in Shanghai. I would not hesitate to stay here again and having Yan as a host.
Yan is a great host, really friendly, nice and clean house. I had a great time thanks for showing me around and introducing me to your friends. I really appreciated this. Can absolutely recommend!
