Polly's apartment was very lovely and homey - exactly what was described in the photos. The bed was really comfortable with heater provided during winter (aircon, electronic blanket and heater all together, I couldn't ask for more in this chilled weather :))
I like Polly. She is a kind and friendly mom who provided useful advise for my trip planning and restaurant hopping. Will pay a visit at her place again for my next trip in Shang Hai
It was a wonderful staying with Polly! It is a comfortable and safe neighborhood. The apartment was clean and Polly was really friendly and amazing host to be with. I would recommend this Airbnb without any hesitance.
Like most of the previous guests who have left reviews, we found Polly's apartment extremely user-friendly and in the best-possible location in the center of Shanghai's Puxi area. As tourist, you couldn't ask for a better home base to launch your daily exploration of this vast and fascinating city.
Two issues which are by no means specific to this place but unfortunately, as far as I know, are common to most homes in modern Shanghai:
1) Slow Internet speed: try not to go online much; it is indeed frustrating to browse the Web anywhere, and yes, Shanghai is the most advanced city in Mainland;
2) Cold winter: you probably already know most Shanghai homes are unheated and residents wear heavy coats inside their own home. So try to visit Shanghai in the spring or fall if you can. Polly does have a portable electric heater in the room and you can move it to the bathroom during shower. The shower water can be either scalding or frigid and it's a little hard to adjust to the suitable combination, like one of the earlier guests also observed.
Again, these two issues are quite common to almost all Shanghai homes, based on my experience and observations. So just think of them as part of the local cultural traits.
Overall, we found Polly and her daughter the most delightful hosts, with tons of stories to share and as long-time Airbnb maestros they will know your needs before you even ask.
Two thumbs up.
