Interaction with Guests

I'm fully available to assist my guests with any inquiries and show them where to go and what to see. I have been in Shanghai for 9 years and am active in the creative industry. During the 9 years I hosted lots of friends and colleagues from abroad and toured them around Shanghai as well as other places in China so I could help you plan your trip more efficiently if you need. Since I am fluent in Chinese and understand well how the system works here, I could ease your pain with the bookings and trip arrangement issues encountered due to language barrier and culture difference. Just ask! It will be my pleasure to help : )

  • First impression was the same as the photo on the home page.
    The house was not large, but very comfortable, clean, everything you need was fully equipped. And Shanghai weather was hot really, I've had very cool in the house. Thanks to the DVD that Angie has had prepared the evening every day, I was able to spend the night very romantic.
    It is regrettable travel period is short, but thanks to Angie, Shanghai trip was fun more. Also I want to go again.

  • I highly recommend Angie's apartment in Shanghai. The location can't be beat, it was clean, convenient, and very comfortable for my daughter and I. Angie was terrific: responsive, timely and informative. I have been to Shanghai many times and am not exaggerating when I say that this place and Angie as host, is the best, especially for the price.

  • Angie's apartment was perfect for our trip to Shanghai. She was not able to meet us when we arrived but she arranged airport transportation for us, had someone meet us at the apartment, and kept in contact with them until we were all checked in. The apartment had everything we needed, was comfortable, clean and close to a convenient subway line and a delicious make your own hot pot restauraunt. I would stay here again.

    집은 사진과 동일하며 매우 깨끗했습니다.
    Angie는 꾸준히 연락을 하며 집까지 오는 방법을 설명해주었고 체크인을 할 때에도 친구처럼 친절하게 설명해주었습니다.
    프랑스 조계지에 위치한 아파트는 지하철을 이용하여 여행하기에 편리했으며
    여행 후 돌아와 휴식을 할 때에도 아늑한 느낌에 하루 피로를 싹 풀 수 있었습니다.
    즐거운 여행을 할 수 있도록 도와준 Angie에게 감사드립니다.
