Great location, comfortable and relaxing private room with your own bathroom sink and perfectly pressured shower which are essential after a long day of site seeing or work. Own key, wireless internet, snacks, large common area, washer/dryer, maid.

The Space

The apartment is 105 sqm (~1000 sq ft), it has a full kitchen, dining room, living room, study room, and fibre internet connection. Other amenities include flat screen TV, washing machine, and free maid service (I pay for it)

Perfect water pressure, quiet room, and comfortable bed are essential a restful day and I'm happy to say, most people who have come have loved those 3 aspects about my apartment.

Guest Access

Guests will be given their own key to accommodate flexible/ad hoc schedules. Guests also have access to wireless internet, study room, common area/big flat screen TV, kitchen, washer/dryer, hair dryer, large bathroom with own sink. I also have a bike that guests can use to site see.

Interaction with Guests

After living and working in Asia for 4 years showing different places to family and friends, I'm happy to extend the courtesy to connect my guests to both entertainment/leisure or business activities to help them get acquainted to China.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is densely residential but only block away from commercial street where you can find traditional and clean Chinese eateries. If you fancy western food and bars, they are 3 block away (15 min) walk on foreigner bar street, Wuding Rd.

Getting around

Taxi: Because location is so central, Taxi ride is often cheap wherever you are.
Subway: 7 minute walk to subway interchange station (Line 2 and Line 11) which are major underground arteries. Jingan Temple, Zhongshan park are 1 subway stop away and Xujiahui, Nanjing west Rd, are 2 subway stops away.

Other Things to Note

Modern building and elevator Access

  • Kevin is a friendly and kind host, offering local information. I found my stay very very enjoyable with the opportunity to socialise with Kevin and his friends.
    While the room may be humble (for some) it is comfortable and homely. The apartment is in a very convenient location, with convenience shops and the metro near by. The WiFi is excellent as is the Shower pressure and water temperature.

    Definitely clean and QUIET, no early morning horns and traffic noises here. The odd bird perhaps... But none of the 24hr traffic noise and tooting that I'm experiencing.... which is inner circle Shanghai.

    A great place... and good value.

    The Bed was a bit firm, (apparently an Asian preference) but I slept very well.

    I will happily visit Kevin again on a return trip to Shanghai.

  • Simple room, very clean and a maid that visits tice a week to clean & iron. Wifi connection is very good.
    Location is excellent, less than 10 minutes from line 2 which is one of the best lines for accessing Shanghai and both airports
    Kevin is very relaxed about having guests and is a good host although with knowing Shanghai I did not need require too much help. I will be happy to stay again in the future

  • My wife and I had a short and pleasant stay at Kevin's place. Kevin was out of town, and we did not have the chance to meet him in person, but was easily accesible through email, and provided very thorough directions and instructions that were very helpful. The apartment was cosy and comfortable, and within a 10-minute walk from Jiang'an metro station. Overall, we had a very good experience staying at Kevin's place.

  • Definitely a recommendation. Kevin is a nice host who is fluent in English and Chinese (you wont find that combination very often in shanghai;)). Apartment is very central, nearby the metro, from there it is only two stations to people's square. French concession is also nearby. Appartment is calm and comfortable, fast internet connection, the cleaning maid even did my laundry. Thanks for a good Shanghai experience.

About
hi, I'm from San Francisco Bay Area and have been in China since 2010. I've lived in many cities in the U.S. primarily the West Coast and the Sun Belt states but have traveled to 25 countries around the world including Europe and SE Asia. Over the years I have showed many friends and family around Shanghai and would love to extend the same courtesy and hospitality to you!
