This is a typical old Shanghai French Concession lane house apartment on the 1st floor. The apartment includes a recently remodeled bathroom, kitchen space, living room, and lofted bedroom.

Other things to note
-The entrance to the apartment is down a dark alley with little to no external lighting. I will try to leave the light on outside the door for guests' arrival - guests must remember to leave this light on for themselves after their check-in or else be prepared to use a cell phone light to navigate the alley. Also, the alley is a little dirty and I apologize for this - I keep the inside of the house clean, but I unfortunately can't control the cleanliness of the external areas.
-Also, since this is an old Shanghai lane house, please be advised that you will be surrounded by neighbors who have the Chinese habit of sleeping early and rising early. Please expect a certain amount of external noise in the early morning as the locals get up and start their days. I provide ear plugs in the house if you'd like to use them while you sleep.
-Do not pull the inside handle upwards after you enter the house - this will engage all the door's deadbolts and you'll be locked inside. If this happens to you, you'll have to call me so I can come open up the door from the outside. Please, please, please pay attention to this tip. There's a sign on the door reminding you as well.
-No smoking indoors.
-Absolutely no drug use on the premises.
-Please keep noise down after 10pm to be respectful to the neighbors.
-Please treat the house with the respect you would expect from someone living in your own house.
