Polly's apartment was perfect for seeing SH for the first time. The location is really close to #9 subway which from there it is very easy to get to any place you want to see, (even if you speak no Chinese). Upon getting off the plane I messaged Polly, and she responded instantly. She promptly met me at the exit of the subway (cheaper, easier, & faster than taxi from Pudong). The mall in the subway station has many options for food both Chinese and Western.
The bed was a little firm for me, but fresh linens, towel, and a bed warmer were provided. I am very pleased that Polly upgraded me to the Master room for a small fee, as I am a tall person, and the Master is far from the front door so you don't hear others come and go. The shower water pressure was a little on the low side, but it was hot and felt good after 16 hrs of flying.
Polly and Qingqing were very sweet, polite hosts engaging in very good conversations. On New Year's day everything is closed, even Sbucks and McD's so if you have not planned, it can be a problem. Polly invited me to eat a wonderful Chinese breakfast of rice soup, sweet salty bamboo w tofu, and rice pudding w date paste, and tea. I'm not normally an adventurous eater, but it was amazing!
The internet can be a little slow when everyone is using it, but with good timing (everyone asleep) it is fine. If you are not familiar w/ China's internet, a VPN is a must to get your normal western websites.
I am pleased to have had another wonderful AirBnB experience. Thank you so much Polly for your kindness and hospitality.
It's a really nice place. In these few days, I truly felt like home. Polly and her daughter are really nice people. They are friendly and kind-hearted. Hope I can stay here longer.
Polly accommodated me at her home even with my last minute request. The room was as described. It was very centrally located. You can practically walk everywhere. The neighborhood was safe and close to the metro. Polly also helped me to get train ticket to Beijing and even recommended a few places to check out. We didn't really get to socialize due to my hectic schedule. The only thing I would recommend her is to keep the bathroom neat and tidy as well as the common areas like the kitchen and dining room. Other than that, I'm quite satisfied with my stay.
Polly was a great host; this was my second stay with her. I would highly recommend staying with Polly. She is very accommodating and will make you feel very at home!
Polly was a great host - she is a friendly and easygoing person and provided lots of help in finding swimming pool, shops, transport etc. The flat is spacious and comfortable, good aircon and all very clean.
Staying with Polly was a great experience. She was very helpful and accommodating all throughout the stay. The location was next to the subway and conveniently located in downtown Shanghai.
