About this listing

If you're seeking for ideal, centrally-located digs to enjoy sultry shanghai, look no further. This nearly 70square flat meter lies in the heart of the (former) french concession and has all the most current amenities and decorative flair to boot.

The space

This nearly 70square flat meter lies in the heart of the french concession, meaning lush tree-lined streets and a stone's throw away from the most trendy bars, clubs, cafes, restaurants, and of course, the infamous avocado lady. metro lines 1 and 10 - at the busy and popular hengshan lu and huaihai lu, respectively - bookend the flat's address, yet it remains remarkably quiet.

The actual apartment features a sizeable tile-lined foyer and a two generous rooms with wood floors. it's well equipped, with a full kitchen, large refrigerator, and all necessary cutlery, flatware, dishware to comfortably host. the kitchen even has an oven - for those of you at all familiar, a rare luxury in chinese apartments. the apartment is awash with light courtesy of large windows - both in the morning and during the late evening. the flat also features all designer furniture - including a number of antique Chinese chests, six Eames chairs, and one fine shell chair by Hans Wegner, anchoring the exposed brick wall in living room.

The living room has a comfortable couch, the bedroom features a queen size bed inclusive of all necessary bedding, and there is generous space in the armoire to house all your gear, be they three-piece suits or track suits. the bathroom contains a brand-new washing machine and cascade shower with detachable arm. two brand new air conditioner units and wall heaters keep the apartment cool during even the hottest summer days and toasty during the gray winter nights. the apartment is more than enough space for a single individual, but also lends itself to a couple. fortunately, there is also a cleaning lady that comes once weekly to clean up your mess.

It was an amazing experience of staying at Ryan's artistic place. It's well designed and equipped flat, very Swedish style. We love the interior design of the flat together with easy and accessible facilities. As an outsider in a busy Shanghai,we felt at home. Thank you and hope we have a chance to stay there again!

We came to Shanghai for a few days and stayed at Ryan flat. The place is very nice and clean and Ryan welcomed us warmly with a few tips on the neighbourghood. The flat is well located to discover Shanghai with an easy access to the former french concession and to the subway. I would gladly recommend this place for anyone looking to stay in Shanghai.

Staying in Ryan's home for 2 days during May Day, I love the flat every much. The flat is with Scandinavia interior design feeling, which is simple, plain and tidy. The lamps are also interesting and old-fashion, really appreciate them. I would say the most valuable experience to stay here is so cosy and convenient. There are lots of cafes, jazzy bars waiting to explore, and within 10 minutes walk you can get to the metro. Overall, it is a very nice experience which I would stay here again for my next time in Shanghai.

I stayed here for a month and I really enjoyed what the host did with the place. The apartment was well equipped and located in a convenient area. The host was also very responsive to all my questions and needs. My only problem would be that the hot water heater was very finicky and would only last for couple of minutes at a time. This isn't too bad during the summer, but I can't image this during the winter. Hopefully the host can get this fixed by then.
