Drum roll.................. First of all, I recommend this place with every gold star possible. This place is in the heart of shanghai and easy to get to from the airport following the instructions by metro. It has shops, supermarket and all. I would say it is in a upper class area which is great for quality food which is important. When Filipe said big room... It really is for shanghai. You get your very own ensuite with superb HOT water and western style toilet. It even has it's own balcony in the bedroom so you completely have a lot of privacy. The most comforting thing is Filipe is a genuine host and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there for 10 days. It's not a party house but matured one. I really wish I booked it for longer. I've seen other apartments in shanghai - watch out for Chinese beds that break and cold showers with little hot water coming out and just not enough space.... There's 20 million peeps in shanghai so there's shoeboxes and there's this housey feeling apartment which is at Filipe! Filipe showed us the best places around town and good restaurants (Blue Frog). This was value for money and great experience for shanghai. Save the time - Your search for a sweet pad ends here..... Thanks again for everything Super Host!

Response from Filipe:
Wow! Thanks for the awesome recommendation. You guys are welcome to come back anytime. Enjoy the rest of your China trip!
Filipe's room was big and comfy (even for two). Filipe himself is very nice and always happy to advise or help. When we booked the room we thought it might be wired or uncomfortable living with roommates but we almost never saw them and when we did it was always laid back and friendly, they made us feel at home :)
We loved the room, it was just as described. Filipe was a welcoming host and helped us out with getting around Shanghai for our weekend visit - would definitely stay here again. The room was big and the bed was very cozy, and of course, it was great having our own bathroom. Filipe provided us with a free phone with credit for the weekend, not to mention the metro cards, VPN access and also free laundry!
Perfect guest, well mannered, very quiet. Welcome back anytime. Thanks
Filipe, during the few days I had the chance to know him a little, was a very pleasant and interesting guest. I am so happy that he enjoyed his stay, and I really hope to make it to Shanghai while he is still there. Recommended without reservation!
Although we did not exchange so much during Filipe's visit he was a truly great guest. I was travelling myself during half of Filipe's stay. He left everytning spotless and is definitely welcome back anytime!
Highly recommended Airbnb guest!
Filipe booked our apartment again in January and has quickly risen to the top of our Best Guests list. Filipe is a prime example of why this website works so well: he's a member with excellent communication skills, an incredibly friendly and open personality and someone who understands patience and flexibility.
Filipe has our *highest* recommendation for AirBnB members who have the opportunity to host him in the future. A very big thank you, Filipe. You're always welcome wherever we are. All the very best from both of us.
A big thank you to Filipe for staying with us. The communication, from start to finish was top notch and it was a pleasure to host him in our pied-à-terre. He was a great guest who was clean, friendly and personable and made holiday renting a joy. We hope to welcome him back to Saigon sometime in the not-too-distant future.
Happy travels, Filipe!
