Expert Review

Occupying a thoughtfully renovated 1937 art deco villa, this small hotel is loved by style gurus, designers, and architects around the world. It remains a largely well-kept secret, treading a neat line between boutique hotel and 1930s-themed designer B&B. Each of the five rooms is exquisitely decorated in period style with ornate Shanghainese furnishings, four-poster beds, and fine fabrics. The junior suite even has its own library. The statue-filled serene gardens enhance the hotel’s ambience of peace and calm – which is a real luxury in a city not recognized for either. The friendly, garrulous owner is a great source of knowledge about past, present, and future Shanghai.
