The Space

☸ High Ceiling Loft-style apartment in an authentic 1930's Shanghai Lane House.

The lane houses in our community have barely seen any renovation since and show charming signs of time. The apartment itself is fully renovated to western standards,beautiful designed and decorated.

Seperate Bedroom with king Size Bed, living room with equipped kitchen and extendable sleeping couch for up to two additional guests. Nespresso Machine, 3D Flatscreen TV, Blue Ray / DVD 2D/3D Player, WIFI-Internet, Washing machine/tumble dryer. Bathroom with walk in shower.

The location
Fantastic Location on popular Changle Lu between Maoming Lu and Shaanxi Lu in the heart of the former French Concession. This is THE location to be. Neighbor house is turned into an italian bistro. Back entrance leads to Jinxian Lu, a street full of life...hip cafes like the Pier39 or Citizen and well known spa's and shops. In the alleys outside the house you will likely see elderly people gathering together playing mahjong, women having dancing lesson or little kids playing with their kites. It is a local Chinese community with all its charm - don't expect a sterile state of the art compound - this is almost the life style as it has been decades ago.

For the fashion lover of you: This area has one of the widest selection of private owned fashion boutiques in the world.

Get around
Changle Lu Bus stop at your doorstep. Metro South Shaanxi Lu a 5 min walk. You can also rent a scooter to discover FFC. Supermarkets, Restaurants and touristy sites in walking distance.

This is an classic and rare lane house in an old Chinese community in the middle of historic Shanghai. It’s such a great experience for the open minded, but if you are not this type, you might be better off in one of the dozen high rise apartments or in a hotel room. If you want to be immersed in authentic local Shanghai, in a beautifully renovated loft-style apt, this apt is for you.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The apartment is superbly located, with fantastic restaurants and boutiques just a short walk away and a Starbucks round the corner for morning coffee. The walls are a little thin but it wasn't noisy at night and the bed is so comfortable that it's difficult not to get a good sleep. It's a great place to stay if you want to experience Shanghai life.

  • We were 4 girls who found the neighbourhood safe and the apartment very comfortable, chic and well furnished with full kitchen, laundry, and entertainment system.
    There are many interesting shops and eateries within walking distance; it's well worth the time to check out the neighbourhood.
    Some tips for those who are interested: it is in an older part of town and the entrance can be hard to find on your own, so make sure you call Victoria beforehand to show you the entrance. We felt well taken care of and will stay again at this apartment for all its character and location.

  • We really enjoyed the stay at your loft. It was just exactly what we had been looking for - a modern loft in an unique and very old chinese house. Just great Shanghainese atmosphere!

  • Had a great stay at Q & Tim's place over Valentine's weekend. It is right in the thick of the French concession as advertised and is walking distance to some of the best dining and shopping in Shanghai. The apartment was neat and tidy when we arrived and the communication in getting to the place was excellent. This place will probably not be for everyone as the entrance isn't a flashy, modern, recently built apartment block, but for those who view travel as an adventure, this is an excellent choice.

  • A pleasant and definitely unique experience in Shanghai. The house is beautifully decorated and located in a convenient environment. Lots of interesting bars, restaurants and shops are near by. We came in a winter time, so the apartment is a little cold and wifi was not stable for one morning but it was ok later at night. After all, the experience was special!

  • This is a lovely flat in a great location. A combination of very comfortable place in a more real environment.

  • We had wonderful experience with Q&Tim's Loft in January,2014. It was just short stopover and we need good rest between flights and convenient accomodation was a must have. From the first communications with owners till the last farewell messages it was easy and pleasant.
    The loft has really uniquie location in FFC and everything (and even more!) provided in very best quality. Location is close to metro station, shops, restaurants, ATM, bus stop and it is very (!) easy to find it. It takes about 40 minutes to get from/to Pudong Airport.
    Appt is spotless, clean, airy with brilliant comfy bed, very silent and spacy for 2-3 people. Kitchen is fully equpped with all modern stuff you might ever need.
    My husbend even enjoyed 3D films when I did shopping nearby.
    You can see realr Shanghai life just looking from the window or walking around and enjoy comfy difference after in the Loft.
    Q was very kind and ready to help with all possible info we need, she also provide a LOT of maps, guides and so on.
    I was empressed how smart is lighting in the flat! (Winter advise: turn all light on when taking shower - it will be much warmer!)
    I highly recommend this place to stay for touristic or business trips.
    Thank you Q and Tim!

  • A lovely little apartment. Clean, tidy and in a great location. Victoria was lovely to deal with. We were very happy with our stay.

    January 2014
  • We booked Q and Tim's both apartments for a weekend trip. We were 4 adults and each of the apartments was just perfect for the number of persons! Great location (very close to tube station, good restaurants and grocery). The apartment was very clean and convenient. But what we appreciate most of all is the interior design which combines the comfort and authenticity that none of the hotels will let you feel. Communication was perfect and very quick! We would definitely stay a second time. Thanks to Q and Tim!

    January 2014
  • Q & Tim (and helping hand Victoria) were extremely helpful and responsive. They were also very flexible when it came to checking in and checking out times, and helped make our stay in Shanghai a success!
