Awesome Apt in French Concession

Apartment - Private room · Shaanxi South Road, Shanghai, Shanghai, China

The Space

Hi everyone! First time hosting on Airbnb. Definitely looking forward to the experience.

A room for 2 in large duplex apartment is waiting for you. The apartment is located right at the Shaanxi Nan lu, in the French Concession. The guest room has a separate entrance and a private bathroom. So it's pretty much like your own little tiny apartment. The apartment is fully furnished so all you need to do is move in with your luggage. Everything else is taken care of. This is not a old traditional Shanghai home as it is a modern complex. So all the furnishings are of high quality.

The former french concession is really a great place to live in Shanghai. There's a lot of parks, markets, food, cafes, boutiques around, you will never be bored here. Also, all the streets are lined with beautiful trees.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • What a great apartment! My partner and I were very comfortable at Ivo's place. The bedroom was very comfortable, the heater worked well, the whole house was very clean, and Ivo was available when we needed him.

    Will definitely stay here again when we come back to Shanghai. Great location, a few blocks from the metro (which was incredibly easy to use), near lots of great bars and restaurants.

    Stay here!!!

  • Money matters - Ivo's place is the best value-for-money apartment in Shanghai! Although a shared apartment, it functions like a private one as you have lots of privacy, having your own entrance and toilet. The place is quite clean, with a maid who comes in to check, dust and arrange. The apartment layout is also interesting and you can hang out in the common areas if you're not busy exploring the city. Tianzifang is just around the corner; a real nice atmosphere to enjoy, especially if you like shopping. Ivo's timely warning about girls inviting for afternoon tea spared us from these tricksters looking out to fool tourists. We can't thank Ivo enough for this! It was very pleasant having conversations with him; he's the kind of guy you'd end up being friends with. We're so glad we picked the right place!

  • Place was perfect and private. Steps from the subway and easy to reach all parts of the city. I would love to stay there again!

  • I probably will be the only one writing not good things about him.
    Our experience was not at all positve.
    Ivo never came to visit us, never bothered to make sure we were ok.
    The day of the chek in we had two hours flight delay so we arrived later then expected.
    He was not home and left us alone to figure out how to get into the house. Thank God two american ladies, the neighbours, saw us struggling and helped us.
    The house is nice, at least this was ok, but the pics do not show represent the reality, they house is not so elegant and clean as it appears on line.
    The bathroom was horribly dirty....Clearly not cleaned at all: hairs and pepe stains where all over the WC. Moreover the WC did not flash!!!
    Anyhow, we went out for dinner with the hope to find him at home (email hidden)p.......He was not home, not even his shadow!
    We decided to leave him some papers to communicate these huge inconvenients...I would like to specify that the we had no other chance to communicate to him, because the WI-FI never worked for all the 3 nights we where there...And he knew about it!

    The day after we found his reply on other little papers saying that he was sorry and went sleeping away so we could use his bathroom and that the cleaning lady was coming during the day...Ok we appreaciated that, this was the minim, but his bathroom was not that cleaned either !!!
    We came back after a whole day walking around, none was home. We went to the bathroom and we found the floor completely wet with a water stain coming from the WC....It was unpossible to go in and still dirty!!!...So no bathroom for the second night either!!!
    The same thing, I just expalined above, happened for the third night....We were complitely left on our own!
    I do not know what was wrong with him, so far, he has good reviews. We were really disappointed!
    I am an Airbnb host too (please have a look at my feedbacks to have an idea) and I never leave my guests alone and I offer them a proper, clean house.
    Definitely not recommended!

  • Ivo is a warm and wonderful host who has a very private, clean, and modern apartment in the heart of the French Concession. This is a great value. Thank you Ivo!
