About this listing

Host's Review: this apartment is perfect for a family visit at a reasonable price. It's fully equiped and furnished to make your stay in a city heart area a comfortable one. Three bedrooms with two bathrooms (master bedroom has its own bath!).

The space

★ Detached highrise apartment! What better way to experience modern and old Shanghai than staying in an authentic and modern building, in a central location just nearby the Huangpu riverbank, yet on a safe, quiet and historical area, with attractions, food, shopping and public transportation? The area was previously the most famous slum of Shanghai and now most area developed into a new town. So you can truly feel the contrary in between the old town and new town in the new era.

★ Getting Around
Shanghai may be a city for those that love to walk, and this location is perfect to do just that. Tourist attractions like Shanghai Ghetto [ The famous Shanghai Ghetto (formally known as Restricted Sector for Stateless Refugees) is just 1.5km away that you can portray with your camera. Shanghai Ghetto is the first stop for many visitors seeking information about what the Holocaust scholar David Kranzler called the “Miracle of Shanghai.” ], 1933 “Creative Hub” (a former slaughterhouse that’s been transformed into a large space for art, music and restaurants), Tilanqiao Historic District, The Bund are within walkin distance. With Oriental Pearl Tower, Pudong Financial Center (Lujiazui), Nanjing Road, Xintiandi, Tianzifang, People Square and Yu Garden are all easily accessible from here.

If you want to have a relaxed day you can indulge in a traditional Chinese massage just in a nearby street. They also do manicures… Maybe a foot massage if you've walked a little much ;-)

If you need to go to cities nearby for sight seeing, such as Wu Zhen (乌镇), Hangzhou (杭州), I can also help order a third party car service. The car capacity is 4 person in one car. The one-day trip can start in early morning and back at night.

★ The Apartment
Furthermore, the luxury of 4 bedrooms and two baths at this price point is very rare in a top rated location in town. Lots of fun shopping, cafes and restaurants within short walking distance.

Large main bedroom with queen-sized bed, and stunning skyline views and private bath en suite. Other rooms have double bed, wardrobe, desk, chair and home furniture. Pet free, smoke free household. Living and dining rooms, kitchen and laundry room. Fast WI-FI and extended IPTV with 100+ channels and on-demand movie broadcasting service (free of charge). The bathroom has a shower/bath and toilet and you will have supply of towels for your use. You will also find the usual toiletries, and yes there is even a hairdryer.

★ Please note: each room is ideal for 1 to 2 people. Perfect for family 、 friend visit in a group of 3-8.

★ Interaction
I've enjoyed meeting every one of our guests who have stayed with us, and this won't be any difference. On arrival, I will be there to welcome you in and take you through the necessary details of the apartment, the building and the area. Depending on your energy level, I would be happy to take you on a quick tour of the neighbourhood to get your bearings.. But I totally understand if you just want to kick back, relax and prepare for the following few days.

If you need anything while you're here, I'm just living in the same area so I'm close by, so I can not only greet you in person, but also communicate extensively via text or email and am always available by phone.

★ Nothing is Off Limits
Guests have the whole space to use as they wish. Washing machine, cooking appliances are ready for use. We also provide ONE set of essentials (towels, bed sheet, toilet paper & tooth brusher), shampoo and shower gel, fresh & clean! Air conditioner with cooling & heating function so you have a comfort temperature in the apartment.

Also, there is a Sport Center closed to the compound. With gym facility, sauna, tennis courts, and a 25 meter swimming pool. Per entry costs 40-50 RMB depending on weekday or weekend. While family gatherings are fine, no parties allowed.

★ 2-day minimum stay in the system, but I may prioritize those who stay longer. Our typical staying period is 1-2 weeks. My guests invariably have just loved staying at my apartments, and they have expressed it in my many reviews.

★ Getting to the apartment from the 2 major airports is easy. If you have some company, taxi is the direct method (cost ~20 EUR by meter and it goes a bit higher after 11pm). If you are one person and on budget, metro can be the choice (metro opening hour: 6am-1030pm). This compound is 3-5 mins walking to the metro.

★ If you stay for more than a week, I'll arrange ayi a time to come over (after agreeing with you on a convenient time of course) to do a entire apartment cleanup/make sure all stock is fine.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to drop me a line and we will get back to you very quickly. I speak English and Chinese.

Look forward to hearing from you soon..

Overall, I wouldn't stay at this Airbnb again. The location is what brought us in, but even if we needed a place that was in Hongkou district, I'd still look for something that is a little bit cheaper. The main issues I had with this place is that the pictures on the ad on the Airbnb website did not accurately reflect the age and 'maturity' of the apartment. I felt like the pictures made the place feel newer and cleaner than what the apartment really was. It wasn't horrible, but I wasn't pleased when I first walked in, either. Also, one other thing is that the living room heater wasn't working. I sent a message to Lisa to have it fixed because it was cold, but she never took action to fix it. Instead, she said there are portable heaters available in the apartment. This also, left a bad taste in my mouth because she didn't try to fix it and just said use portable heaters. I didn't receive any compensation for the lack of functioning heater. That's about it. My two main issues were the accuracy of the pictures' cleanliness, and the heater problem that wasn't resolved. Communication w/ the host was average.

Response from Lisa:
I was a bit surprised to see comments as such kind written by Raymond. The communication with Raymond was a disaster since he was not punctual. He told me that he is living next to our apartment but he still late more than one hour. On the other hand, when he check in and he double checked everything in the apartment, include cleanliness, hot water, Wifi, Air-condition with heater etc. All equipment is working well. Im kind to reminding him that we have the heater for every room, also have 3 more heaters in living room. I have nothing much to comment but just hope that Raymond could respect a bit more on us hosts checking his in and write a real comments. we've submitted to Airbnb for solution. Raymond 住在我们公寓旁边,到了约定时间见面后,却持续推迟时间,check in 时他们检查了所有设备及每个房间的物品等,确定满意,一切正常运行。我们已与Airbnb沟通,希望可以有个专业团队澄清此类失实评价

Rather nice place to stay with family or a group of friends, close to metro (no more than 20 mins to major attractions), clean, spacious. The only downside may be the Internet connection speed if that's essential, but it's a common problem in all of China.

Go on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and AirBNB’s website and do research on prices for surrounding areas.  Contact AirBNB hosts.  Negotiate.  Don’t be like us.  Don’t get taken advantage of.  Do not overpay by $16,688 CNY for a 2 month stay (approximately $3,338 Canadian Dollars).  This is $270 CNY per night extra you are paying per night.  Can you justify overpaying?  There are places with the same amenities for the price you are getting overcharged.  Any business minded person would exploit people like this which is the sad part.  The job is for you to do your due diligence and not get robbed like us.  We are 3 foreign students who are here for school and simply cannot afford such an accommodation for this price.  Do you think it is worth it?  Go and look for yourself.  You’ll find a lot of surprises between the pictures and the actual apartment.

This is a horrendous statement. First, the group came visit our house before an actual booking. I reserved cab to pick them up in the hotel at the request. They renewed the stay after a one month stay, so in total they stayed for 2 months. The worst thing is they screwed up the house: kept the AC open for 20 days with windows open, scratch the wooden floor, stuck the toilet with no proper use (in this case we called someone for help immediately at our charge), the desk and chair were destroyed, the dinning table was ironed badly, even the floor was destroyed in a big extend. We kept all the evidence in pictures and already sent the Airbnb resolution center. We’re now under renovation of the house after such a group of horrible guests. BTW, they left earlier because they had an internal issue among the three of them. This is a big issue Airbnb MUST take action for.

Lisa is a nice person but the apartment was NOT the one i booked, she told me that she has problems with the other apartment, this apartment was old and messy, i didn't like it, she told me that she could give my money back but when you are in the other side of the world you don't have many options and it becomes a real problem try to find a place to stay with baggage and without knowing the languaje

Hi Fernando, I thought you loved the place as you booked it again after arriving back to Shanghai from Beijing. Our apartments are having similar standard and won good reviews from many guests. Sorry if it is not the taste you're looking for...I viewed it as a delighted experience hosting your group.

Hello, I'm Lisa, a young girl living and working in Shanghai. I am outgoing and friendly, fond of people, traveling & food :) I worked as a Skincare Shop Manager before starting the "hosting idea" in 2013 and Airbnb in 2014. It is a delighted experience showing my guests morden and old sides of Shanghai, giving them a "live like a local" experience. Since 2013, over 3,000 travelers / expats from 50+ countries have lived with us, short-term or very long-term. I appreciate all their insights on life, work and many aspects of things. So it would be great if you can help me know a bit about you before a booking!

We can reach much more than a hotel as highlighted (aka. if you're looking for) below:

-A fully furnished space to stay in city heart with short reach to major sites and easy transport access;
-A sweet and experienced host who has lived years abroad to handle all your expectations;
-A chance to befriend with other cool shared apartment guests and hang out around;
-A well compiled booklet to travel as a local.

FAQs shooting:

1. "Do you host elsewhere in the city?" - Not yet. In order to provide the best hosting experience, all our private rooms are in the same location (managible radius) strategically closed to the Bund and major sites of the city. Cloest metro is Linping Lu Station (临平路站) at Line 4 and Hailun Lu Station (海伦路站) at Line 10. Read our comment to check how great the location and everything else are.

2. "Can I / my friend come over to visit first?"
i) For stay of over one month, you can come for a visit beforehand. But to ensure room availability, we suggest you to book two weeks to check out the environment and roommie(s) before a decision to stay really long-term. But:
ii) For stay of less than one month, we cannot arrange it due to capacity. Reviews from 50+ guests and photos taken by Airbnb photographer can be a very good reference for your judgement.

4. "Can I check in in the morning or leave in the afternoon/evening?" - Normal check in time is 2 p.m. and check out time is 12p.m. We can help keep your luggage in storage before check-in time or after check-out time. If the room is not occupied or to be occupied, we can arrange it more flexibly for you.

5. "What else do I share with others after booking the private room?" -Our apartments are fully furnished. You will be sharing the common facility such as washing machine, refrigerator etc with 0-2 other roommies. You will have an own bath if you book a master bedroom.

6. "Good internet?" -YES! Internet is stable and fast but you need a VPN to access foreign sites such as (website hidden) and (website hidden). If VPN is important to you, please send us a note so we can arrange you to a room with this provided.
