The place is 1.2 km away from the nearest mtr. There are a lot of food shops nearby that even open until 11pm. One of the bed doesn't have proper matress and is quite hard but the other one is okay. Host is nice and responsive.

Great location, right off the highway and only a 5 minute walk to the Metro, and hundreds of stores and markets just outside in the surrounding blocks, there's a little bit of everything right there.

Howard was a great host, very nice guy. The apartment was smaller than expected and a bit outside of the hub of the city, but overall there were no issues with our stay there. :)

We didn't actually stay in this apartment, as it was occupied, but Howard and Olivia arranged for us to stay in another of their aps in the same building. The room was nice, although it had seen some wear from general use. The amenities were all functional and we had no problems with there use. The neighbourhood is not touristy, so don't expect many people to speak English, but in many ways that is part of the allule of AirBnb, you live less like a tourist and more like a local. A little bit of Chinese and a lot of pointing will get you a long way. The real advantage of the apartment is that after a 10-15 minute walk to the metro station, you are only 2 metro stops away from People's Square, which is the informal centre of Shanghai. Howard and Olivia and both very helpful and the cleaning lady, although she didnt speak English, was very patient and very helpful. So, if you are after a more genuine experience of Shanghai, and you want to be able to buy and cook your own food, interact with locals and be a little less touristy, then this is a good choice.

Great apartment in Shanghai! The apartment is very clean, with great city view. Just 10 min's walk from the subway, and quiet convenient to go to most of the places in Shanghai. The apartment is clean, and Howard and Olivia are quite nice and patient to us. They provide detailed guidance of transportation and nearby facilities in the apartment for guests, which is very helpful. Nice journey, nice stay:)

I had a good stay in Howard & Olivias apartment, where I stayed for a month and a half. Actually I didn't stay in the apartment in the pictures, as the water heating was out of order when I arrived. They were very helpful and immediately arranged a new apt in the same building which was even bigger than the first. I wasn't met by Olivia as she was ill when I arrived, but the very helpful cleaning lady showed me around and signed the contract with me. She was super helpful, however did not speak English, so if I hadn't spoken Chinese I guess it would have been harder. Of course, furniture and fabrics are a bit more worn than in the pictures, but I think that this must be expected from any host on Airbnb. As it was my expectation before arriving, I was not disappointed in any way. Howard and Olivia were excellent hosts and both helped me out with various things during my stay, including registration at the local police office, and finding a print/copy shop. I once complained about the WiFi bandwidth which unexpectedly dropped one day and stayed low for several days. They responded right away and even offered me to switch the apartment again while solving the problem. Overall I had a pleasant stay and can warmly recommend this apartment! (A general tip for travelers is that Shanghai is cold during the winter, especially indoors. The standard does not include central heating which means you either have to dress well or pay extra for running the AC/heater quite often.)

Here are Howard Hao and Olivia Han, welcome to Shanghai.

Our apartment founded in March 2006. As the provider of short-term accommodation, it has set up a series of ways to meet with the demand of those people who always trip to Shanghai for a week, or even for a month.
