About This Listing
This quiet, light-filled apartment is in the thriving heart of the French Concession on charming Wuyuan Road. It is minutes away from subway Line 1 & 7, amazing restaurants and the city's best nightlife. Its a perfect escape in this bustling city.
Cozy living area with comfortable couch, coffee table with many books and magazines and easy access to the western-style kitchen.
My apartment is located in one of the most iconic areas of the historic French Concession, with bustling Wulumuqi Lu and Changshu Lu on each side. On charming, tree-lined Wuyuan Lu, the apartment is hidden down an alley off the main street so it is peaceful and quiet.
Although it is in an old part of town, it is newly renovated with modern amenities like gorgeous hardwood floors, western style bathroom, large fully-outfitted kitchen, and huge closet space.
Guests will have access to the entire flat, which includes a cozy living area, a queen sized memory foam mattress bed, a bright and airy fully outfitted kitchen with gas stoves and cooking supplies, a washing machine, air conditioning/heater, TV, DVD player and hi-speed wireless internet.
A Japanese style cot can be made available to accommodate one more person in the living room.
Interaction with Guests
I am available and only a phone call away at all times for any questions and needs you might have while in Shanghai!
I will provide you with a guidebook I created for Shanghai and can also help you create a personalized trip itinerary, make any necessary bookings, etc.
The area has a true neighbourhood feel, with a busy wet market nearby, plenty of cafes and bakeries, small noodle shops and eateries abound.
One of the best bars in Shanghai, Senator's Saloon is conveniently located just across the street. This atmospheric prohibition-era craft cocktail bar is a great neighbourhood watering hole!
Changshu Lu Subway station is literally 1 minute away on Wuyuan Lu and Changshu Lu. You can find both Line 1 and Line 7 there.
Taxis are also easy to flag all around this neighbourhood.
Other Things to Note
Upon arrival you will also receive my personal guidebook to Shanghai, 20 pages of the best to do, see and eat in the city.
Please take care of the apartment as if it was your own, place everything back where you found it, and STRICTLY NO SMOKING or the security deposit will be deducted.
Tree-lined Wuyuan Road is a short street between bustling Wulumuqi and Changshu roads. Despite its central location it feels hidden and quiet, adding to its charm.
The apartment was tidy and perfectly located - Jenny's Shanghai Guide was full of great tips which was much appreciated. A fantastic two-night stay in the French Concession!
L'emplacement est topissime. En plein centre de Concession française.
Le nid est très douillet, calme, le lit confortable, moderne et pratique si l'on souhaite petit déjeuner ou se faire à diner.
L'immeuble est très simple et les voisins sont typiques !
Nous n'avons pas vu Jenny mais tout a été organisé afin de sécuriser notre arrivée et départ par mail et téléphone.
It is a nice little flat in a traditional shanghai lane. The area is great, the flat is comfy, simple, nicely decorated and surprisingly silent. A good base to explore the city on a short stay; possibly a bit more challenging for a prolonged stay with a small bathroom and basic kitchenware. Ivy's list of reco is useful.
Location of the apartment was perfect. 3min walk from ChangShu Rd Metro station (which is only 1 stop from Jing'an Station) and surrounded by cute little shops and bars.
Interior is very stylish and cozy as well. There's DVD, city map, tea, and almost everything you would ever need.
All in all, my stay was very pleasant and I'll definitely consider coming back next time I visit Shanghai.
Jenny was a great communicator and her assistant Mia was similarly sweet and helpful. The apartments location was perfect. Loved Senators saloon. Place is fine for 1 or 2- too compact for more.

About the Host, Jenny
I'm a Canadian entrepreneur currently living in Shanghai, one of the most dynamic and exciting cities in the world. I've lived in more than seven countries across Europe, North America and Asia and speak five languages.
I am the founder of a modern Chinese fast casual restaurant chain focused on transparently sourced, safe and clean ingredients, and also write about Chinese food culture for my own website as well as international food and travel magazines, so you will be in good hands when it comes to dining while in town :)
Traveling is obviously a big part of my identity, and I have had many positive experiences traveling through Airbnb in the past, so want to create an opportunity for others to experience the same in my adopted city.
I would love to host you in my beautiful apartments and make your time in Shanghai as enjoyable as possible. For that, I've especially created a 20 page guide to the Best Of the city which you will receive upon booking.
Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Look forward to welcoming you to Shanghai!
Along Wuyuan there are plenty of things to do and eat. Just across the apartment is Senator's Saloon, a bourbon bar/speakeasy, one of the city's best bars.
Avocado Lady just south of Wuyuan on Wulumuqi sells tons of Western groceries. You can find the same at Feidan and Pines on Anfu Road just north of Wuyuan.
Here you can find popular expat bars Apartment, Shiva, El Coctel and underground club Shelter. Also find Nene, a great Italian restaurant.
Great cafe/bakery with all day wifi.
