Anouk's space is outstanding. I can't say enough about the location. It's right in the middle of everything great about the former French Concession, and yet it's very quiet and peaceful. I have friends who live in the area, and they regularly complain about how their spaces are cold during the winter. Anouk's place has an individual heater for every room, and she's installed double paned windows, so count on being completely comfortable. There was all kinds of beverages for me, and she was really good at taking the time to give me all of the advice on staying in the unit and the surrounding area.
Bottom line, don't hesitate using this space. It's beautiful, comfortable, ideally located, and the owner is attentive and thoughtful.
My stay at Anouck hospitality jewel in the French concession was great and inspiring.
The whole flat is smartly and tastefully curated.
Anouck introduced me very well to the location and everything was spotless upon arrival.
It's is like a Private boutique hotel :)
Thank you very much for everything !
Excellent host. Very friendly and helpful, plenty of fresh towels and sheets, bottled water, snacks, the works
Highly recommend staying with Anouk when in Shanghai
Ideal location in the heart of old centre of Shanghai, a few steps away from the main road, but in a very quite local neighbourhood. I love the interior and attention to details in both decoration and in hospitality. Anouk is an example of ideal host, she sincerely cares about her tenant's comfort and very helpful! By far its my best experience at airbnb, strongly recommend Anouk's apartment for those who wants to see and enjoy the flavour of old and modern Shanghai with 5* star comfort.
We loved staying at Anouk's loft!
The location is perfect and the loft is very charming and cosy. It was perfect for our stay in Shanghai and I hope we have another chance to stay here again.
Absolutely lovely little place--you'll definitely feel like a local living here. Cozy and unbelievably well-appointed. Would absolutely want to stay here again if I came back to Shanghai.
It was very easy to stay at Anouk's place. She had arranged everything very good from arrival to departure. We did not have the pleasure to meet her as she was on a trip but she arranged with one of her friends to meet us at the apartment.
We really liked the information brochure that she sent to us prior arrival. That helped us a lot as the address was in there (in Chinese).
The apartment is just as it looks in the pictures. The location is great.
We would recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Shanghai.
Anouk's small but perfectly formed apartment was the perfect oasis to return home too from the hustle and bustle of Shanghai.
Quite literally in the middle of the French consession, with the tube just across the road the apartment is easy to access.
Anouk,s communication before and during our stay was excellent, we came well prepared thanks to her thoughtful notes and she was always available if the need arose.
Anouk was super helpful in helping us figure out what the best way was to the loft. once there she showed gave us a ran down and things to do around the loft. Perfectly located in the french concession with an awesome coffee spot right next door.
Perfect location, perfect place, perfect host, our best airbnb ever!
