Expert Review

Opened in 2006, this small boutique property is located beside the buzzing downtown Xintiandi district. The interior decor combines Tuscan terracotta tiles and Spanish archways with rich Chinese woods and comfy club chairs. The result is a little hit and miss, with some of the design elements rather overstated, but the 18 individually-themed rooms are comfortable and spacious with flatscreen TV, glass-paneled bathroom, rainforest shower, green jade sinks, and personalized room accessories. The informal, yet courteous approach of the staff is a refreshing change from the city’s ultra-businesslike hotels, and the room rates are reasonable given the hotel’s central location. A Mediterranean terrace restaurant is due to open in early 2007.
