Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had an amazing stay at Shirley's shanghai Lane. Being an Airbnb host myself, i understand how different it feels to stay at lovely places on Airbnb. Not only it is liberating to have your own kitchen, it also gives you an wonderful insight to what it may be like as a local :) Alice and Zero were the most wonderful host, we will for sure come stay again when we are next in shanghai! Best, Kelly

  • If you like to stay in a cozy, nicely decorated, and clean accommodation, this is the place for you. We booked two rooms (1A and 1B)and stayed for a week. Felt comfortably warm despite of the 2-10 degrees temp of Shanghai. Location is one of the best in Shanghai-near the subway, major shopping malls, and French Concession! Surrounded by restaurants-both local and western. WIll definitely recommend this to families and friends!

  • Just Perfect! I recommand and I will go back. Thanks a lot.

    December 2013
  • Shirley's apartment in the French Concession was perfect for our group of 5.

    The metro, grocery stores and restaurants are all close by. It's the perfect base in Shanghai. Would definitely rent it again.

  • Perfectly located loft space for anyone wanting walking convenience in French Concession. New iampm mall is a great plus! Thanks!

    December 2013
  • This is a great location and within a short (100m) walk from ShanXi South train station.

    It is very near to popular tourist attractions like French Concession, XinTianDi and Tian Zi Fang.

    The area is also surrounded by plenty of food places.

    One thing hopefully will improve is the lack of lights outside of the apartment. If you return at night say 1am, it is dangerous and scary to walk to the entrance because there are no lights. Me and my friends have to turn to our mobile phone lights to navigate our way to the entrance.

    Lastly, the entire house is not well-sound proofed. If you are a light sleeper, you might be distracted by conversions outside of the room or even the sound of running tap.

    Overall, I think this is a good venue and will recommend it to people traveling in groups.

    November 2013
  • The apartment is great and located in a very nice area, very close to metro station line 1,10, only 1 stop away from Xintiandi. Fanny, the host's collegue was doing everything she could to make our stay in Shanghai comfortable. The check-in and check out time was very generate. But bear in mind this is the apartment with 2 toilets rooms but only 1 shower, so if there are many of you, you might have to work around that. Anyway, totally recommended property!!

    November 2013
  • This was a great and painless experience. Fanny was waiting in the loft to hand me the keys. The place is great, spacious, great location and very clean. I highly recommended. Communications with Shirley were fast and professional. Thank you both.

    October 2013
  • We had a wonderful stay in apt 1A. As good if not better than the photos. Shirley's colleagues Fanny and Zero couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. We had a minor problem with the shower which was fixed in 10 minutes. They even organised our high speed rail tickets to Beijing. Would highly recommend this lovely apartment stay in great location.

    October 2013
  • We (4 guests) had a wonderful stay in this beautifully designed lane house. Excellent location in the middle of the former French Concession. Our host was great, very responsive and helpful! I would highly recommend this flat for a short term stay in Shanghai for an authentic experience!!

Hi, I am a landscape architect. also work on interior and architecture. I love veggie garden. we are developing many apartments into short stay apartments in the old French Concession area. Most of them are part of typical lane houses. Lots of fun! Also, in the middle of Shanghai, we developed a factory area into an interesting mixed use compound. And we turned the usable roof into veggies gardens! the project is called Jiashan Market. We hold weekend market in the yard of the compound! So weather you are visiting or staying in Shanghai, it is a great place to spend time with your friends. I am now based in Melbourne, but often pop back to Shanghai. Hope to meet you one day there and showing you around. Shirley
