I arrived at Quintet Shanghai with high expectations after reading such good reviews on Tripadvisor and I was bringing my parents (60+) and a sister along. They were used to staying at big hotels so it took much convincing on my part to persuade them to check into Quintet. I must say Quintet totally exceeded my expectations! After staying in...

We spent three nights at Quintet. It is convenient to get there by subway. The owner is a very nice person who loves to provide guests useful information about Shanghai. According to her suggestion, we experienced Shanghai in a different way and had an unforgetable memory about this city.

We stayed at Quintet for 4 nights and I would highly recommend this B&B. Our room was very tastefully furnished with a comfortable king size bed. The bathroom had a great big bathtub which was also rigged with a shower head & curtain. The bathroom included bath salts, great body lotion & shampoo. Bath linens were sparkling white and luxurious....

Our trip to Shanghai had to be cancelled on short notice due to a volcano eruption in Europe in April 2010. The manager was very accommodating and refunded our deposit.

This is quite a pleasant hotel in a good part of Shanghai. Staff are very helpful but not all speak English. Decor is nice. A tight squeeze up stairs if that is an issue for you. Unlike other reviewers I didn't like the breakfast, but I'm clearly in the minority. It was the most expensive hotel we stayed at in...

We stayed for 4 nights at Quintet during one of Shanghai's rainiest periods, which added to the coziness and comfort that we enjoyed at Quintet. I echo the comments made by njttravelling earlier, and add that Quintet provides a personality and a personal level of thoughtful service that is unique to the most memorable B&B's in the world. The smallest...

I recently stayed for four nights in one of Quintet's five rooms. My whole stay in Shanghai was fantastic and Quintet was a big reason why. The information pack provided at check-in was detailed and exceptionally useful, especially to communicate with cab drivers.

We received a high recommendation from a friend to stay at the Quintet in Shanghai and from the moment we inquired, the owner, Fay was beyond helpful responding to our emails and questions.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
