  • Appartement très bien situé ( bouche de métro à 5 min à pied) avec tout le confort.
    Polly a été pour nous une hôte très agréable avec qui nous avons eu beaucoup de joie à échanger. Elle a su se rendre disponible à chaque fois que nous avons eu besoin d'elle : écrire en chinois pour le taxi ou pour prendre le train, nous conseiller des sites à visiter, téléphoner à notre place pour expliquer en chinois...
    Une très bonne adresse.

  • The apartment is at a great location, close by walk from shops, restaurants, supermarket, gym, metro... at the core of the French Concession.
    Polly is very nice, helpful and friendly. As well as the other guests at the apartment. I had a great experience and I truly recommend it.

  • i stayed in three different rooms over a period of a few weeks with polly and she was excellent with communications and accommodating my eclectic schedule...one of the apartments (the one with the small room) has three rooms which are rented out, so it's almost got the feel of a mini-hostel where you meet all sorts of interesting people to go do stuff with...as well, polly is a great host and i can see why travellers would find it perfect to stay with her, as she has a lot of suggestions and has lots of answers to typical traveller's questions...

  • Polly is a fantastic host, and her place is very nice. She is extremely helpful in pointing out places to go and how to get there. She even helped me load my SIM card because I don't typically use that type of phone. This room is large with AC and it's own locks. Very comfortable.

  • Polly is an excellent host. She responds instantly to your messages and truly makes an effort to help you with whatever needs you have. The apartment is shared with two others but they are very discreet and considerate. The location of the apartment is very convenient with a metro and a lovely market nearby with quaint bars and restaurants. Cabs are easy to get from her building and the apartment has a lovely view from both lounge and bedroom. The room is large with a very comfortable bed, and the lounge has a lovely long table which I used for a business meeting. The only negative point was lack of pressure in shower and water not too hot but considering the sweltering heat outside, it was welcomed. Room has both AC and fan and wifi works really well. I have no doubt that you will enjoy your stay as much as I did.

  • I sent my son and friend on their first overseas trip to shanghai, where they would not know the language or have a host, I felt so safe and welcomed from the day I found Polly. She responded quick to text messages, gave directions and gave great care. Clean rooms in a great location. I would highly recommend her.

  • Polly is a fantastic host. I really enjoyed staying at the apartment in Shanghai. She's extremely helpful in providing travel advice and tips in Shanghai and China. I look forward to meeting in Shanghai again.

  • This was my second airbnb rental in China and second fabulous home. The location is 5 minutes walk from a subway stop located under a shopping mall with a dozen restaurants, coffee shops etc. on the B2 floor. The neighborhood was also full of restaurants as well including a very greasy KFC and a 24-hour convenience store.

    Polly said there were two other tenants in the apartment but it seemed as if I had the place to myself most of the time. I met one other tenant once and never saw the other, though the only time I spent there during my 4-day stay was a couple hours in late afternoons and late night until morning.

    The apartment is on the top floor of the building so the view is very nice and the room has a bay area with lots of windows & a very comfortable chair to relax or nap. The 4-post bed is comfortable. The Internet connection is pretty good for China.

    The shower had plenty of hot water & a washing machine & my clothes dried quickly hanging in front of my room's windows.

    I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this apartment & hope I have the chance to stay there again.
