Alice was lovely and willing to give us an early checkin. Central location, despite the alley may be a little dark in the night, but Shanghai is safe so it's ok.

This was our second 3-week stay in one of Shirley's properties, and it was just as excellent as the first stay, a year ago. The apartment suited our family of four very well. It is in a great part of Shanghai, and the location combines the charm and colour of 'lane life' with the advantages of being on the handsome Middle Fuxing Road, lined with plane trees and a multitude of shops. We are big fans of the fruit shop and dumpling shop which are in the lane right next to Shirley's building, and we bought their wares almost every day! The subway and the impressive 'high-end' IAPM shopping mall are also very near, at the north end of the lane. Communication with Alice was always superb, and Shirley's team of Alice and Zero deal with any issues or queries speedily and efficiently. Highly recommended accommodation indeed!

The apartment is ideally located 2 minutes to subway station and supermarkets. It is in the city center but in a very quite lane so you don't have all noise from streets. The apartment has everything needed for a comfort stay for 4 or 5 people and it is western style decorated. It has a nice terrace which is a gift in middle Shanghai, it is a pity they don't take more advantage of it. I would recommend the place for sure.

The apartment is quite small with limited daylight. It's trembly hot on the 2nd floor. It is also quite old and not very clean. It's not the the best for visitors with kids. Location is great, in the city center, quiet.
Shirley User ProfileShirley is a superhost.
Response from Shirley:
Hi Qinlin, Thanks for the warning! We'll add more lights to light the room. The raditor handle is ok now and won't be very hot. The apt is old and of loft style. Have a nice holiday!

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.
