The Space

Large, two-bedroom apartment in the best section of downtown Shanghai.

Fantastic location right on the corner of Gao'an Road and Huaihai Road, directly across the street from the Shanghai Library and its Line 10 metro stop. Line 1 Hengshan Road metro is five minutes' walk. There is a bus stop across the street offering connections all over Shanghai. The neighborhood has lots of great cafes, bars, restaurants, and shopping within walking distance.

The apartment is on the 4th floor of a 5-story building in a quiet courtyard. 100 square meters, 2 bedrooms (the master bedroom has a king size bed, television, and DVD player, the other bedroom is used as an office, with a fold out futon). Good sized living room with 50 inch flatscreen television and DVD player. No oven, but otherwise a fully-equipped kitchen. Fastest available wireless internet. Maid service three times per week. Utilities and everything are included.

  • Luis was a great host with a fantastic list of things to do in the French Concession. The apartment is huge and the neighbourhood is great. Thanks so much for having us stay.

  • You could not ask for a better host to rent from than Luis. The apartment fulfilled everything it promised and Luis' cleaning lady was professional, friendly and discrete. The communication with Luis was excellent and he made us comfortable in addressing him whenever needed. When we had a slight Visa issue, he even went out of his way to help us out. Luis provides you with great accommodation in a perfect location in town, as well as all the tools needed to enjoy and explore the city. Luis is the perfect host and I can only highly recommend renting from him!

  • El departamento de Luis está muy bien ubicado, cerca de dos lineas de subte con las que nos movimos perfectamente. El departamento en si es más grande de lo que aparece en las fotos que están publicadas, los cuartos , el living, el baño son muy amplios. Todo funcionaba perfectamente, además la mucama es un extra apreciado, una persona encantadora que nos lavó y planchó la ropa.Luis tuvo la gentileza de dejarnos en la heladera jugo, leche y unas riquísimas galletitas para el desayuno, muy generoso de su parte, Toda la relación fue muy fluída , las indicaciones sobre el barrio apreciadas!.El departamento además está en una típica construcción de Shanghai con un jardín interno, que muchos de los habitantes, gente grande en su mayoría aprovechan para sentarse a charlar.. El departamento está en el 4to piso, las escaleras podrían estar más arregladas, pintadas, pero eso evidentemente no depende de Luis. Lo recomiendo calurosamente como una base ideal para una estadía en Shanghai: Gracias Luis !

  • My partner and I just moved to Shanghai and we used Luis's apartment as a place to stay during our transition (1 week). His apartment was in the perfect location! Great size, clean, nice decor and equipped with a washer/dryer, entertainment system (with an alphabetized DVD collection, wow!), etc. Overall, it was a wonderful experience but what is more is that Luis really prepares his guests for a positive experience. He left us a list of great restaurants to visit in the neighborhood and much, much more. Highly recommended!

  • Luis's flat is very nice place, great location, 2 min to subway, you can find places with european food in neighborhood. Master bedroom is nice and quiet, study room is not suitable (for me) for sleeping in because of the nosy street out side.

  • Great location -- central French Concession area, yet quiet in the bedroom facing the courtyard. Will stay again when next in Shanghai.

  • Luis' apartment was great--convenient, easy to fine, central, comfortable, and having ayi service a couple times a week was fantastic. We had a slight problem checking and settling in, but once that was taken care of, the rest of the stay was great. the apartment is spacious and comfortable, and ayi to help do any laundry and dish washing was a definite plus. I was in shanghai for some business meetings and didn't want to stay at a hotel for a couple weeks--his place was just perfect for what i needed. the location next to the subway line is also really convenient, right in french concession area, it was nice to stroll around the area and also easy to find taxis. definitely a place i'd stay again.
