Very well placed apartment, in a quiet street, not very far from fuxing park, a good base(basis) to discover the city by being a little protected from the agitation 24/24. The apartment, at the ground floor, opens on a garden; the cooking(kitchen), as often in the traditional housing, is in the common corridor(lane). A cleaning lady passes twice a week. Our hostess was discreet and cool. We recommend!

I enjoyed my stay in Yan's apartment. Yan and Carlos met me when I checked in, and were super hospitable. The place is conveniently located in the French Concession, within a few blocks of the main shopping and bar areas. The place had everything I needed, and the projector screen with movie DVDs was a nice add-on.
For stair haters, the place is a third-story walk-up with steep stairs up to the lofted bedroom. For tall folks, the lofted area, in particular the shower and vanity, have low ceilings. For light sleepers, street noise can be heard at all hours, especially in the living room through the balcony doors. For shy people, the shower area is not enclosed.
I'd recommend this place and would stay there again.
Yan's place is in the perfect location, on a lovely tree-lined street in the French Concession. The entryway needs some work, but the interior of the apartment itself is quite nice, with lots of space, a private garden, and a laundry room. Inside, it is sunny and you can't hear any street noise whatsoever. However, the upstairs neighbors are early risers, so this may not be an ideal location for light sleepers who wish to sleep late. But why would you want to when all of Shanghai is at your doorstep?
Yan's apartment was amazing. It's a hidden (literally) gem that consists of a well designed space with quirky and tasteful fittings. It's in the best possible location to explore Shanghai and Yan's recommendations were great.
Had an awesome stay with Yan this week. Really appreciated her waiting for me to arrive even though it was 10:30pm when I arrived.
Place was very clean and homely - very well heated and loved all of the "special touches".
Location was brilliant and Yan was thoughtful to leave a metro card for me to load and use for my stay.
Did not do any cooking at all as her place is literally a stones through from the nicest Chinese food you will ever find :)
Will definitely recommend a stay in this beautiful and thoughtful girls' house - miss it already! JE
I had a wonderful time at Yan's. She was a wonderful, generous, helpful host, and her flat is everything I could have wished for: clean, quiet, bright and sunny, great vibe, and in about the best neighborhood I can imagine for getting to know Shanghai. I look forward to my next visit to Shanghai and definitely look forward to staying at Yan's again.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Yan's lovely home for 4 nights. From the very start I knew this Airbnb stay would be a great experience. Yan was extremely accommodating, hospitable, and an all around nice down-to-earth person. The communication was also easy and clear. Living in her old Shanghai Lanehouse really transports you back in time. It feels like your very own home in the center of town. I would recommend future guests to stay here in a heart beat! Thanks Yan!
Yan was very helpful in getting me oriented to life in Shanghai. She even lent me an old phone for my convenience. Her flat was clean, cozy and convenient to the underground. Why stay in a hotel when you can experience life in Shanghai from a flat in the historic French Concession area?
Yan was a wonderful guest and I was extremely pleased to have her stay at the Writer's Flat. She was fantastic with communication and very easy to deal with on every level. I was especially pleased with the way she treated the place and delighted that she was so thoughtful as to bring along a few little gifts from China. I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to recommend her as a guest to anyone else on Airbnb.
She was a wonderful person. Considerate and quiet as a guest:)
Yan is the best host ever!
She is Chinese and knows how things work in China but she has been abroad a lot so her she understands the western culture as well and her english is perfect. She is very easy going and helpful!
Her place is really nice and clean so if you have the choice to live there go for it!
