I've now stayed at the Regal International Asia East on 3 separate occasions over 3 years, while teaching at Fudan and Tongji Universities. This hotel is great -- the renovated rooms are terrific, the staff goes above and beyond to help their guests. The breakfast buffet has English/Chinese/Japanese food (but not Indian), and they get to know their clientele quite...

The reception staff were very good and helpful; morning breakfast staff was generally good and timely, although had a rather grumpy waiter the last day who clearly would liked to have been in bed than working. The rooms were very spacious & very clean, although our room was located next to the cleaning staff entry and very noisy in the...

Growling front desk staff, smoked filled rooms (in a hotel that says it has a no smoking policy), breakfast that contains almost no healthy choices, and rooms where the temperature is uncontrollable (too hot some days and tool cold others) are just a few of the problems with this hotel. I was placed on a high (un-renovated floor) and the...

This hotel is in a very nice area of Shanghai - French concession. If you want to stay closer to the Bund, then you should look for another hotel. Hotel is clean, but need some facelift for sure. Large rooms. Breakfast has a large selection of International and Chinese dishes.

I switched rooms to one of the "updated" rooms (for a price) and thankfully escaped staying in one of the older rooms with the small bathroom and tub. Although the room I had was nice, it is TOO HOT in this hotel. The air conditioning barely works during the day, and they appear to switch it off at night -...

Shanghai has some pretty high caliber hotels, this isnt one of them. It's hard to say why but essentially; when staff don't care, rooms are tired, there's nothing really 'good' or exceptional in a 5 star hotel one of the world's boom cities.. why bother. The room was average if it was an airport hotel for a layover, breakfast was...

Stayed for a night because my first choice, Courtyard Xujiahui, was unavailable. It is odd to find this hotel described as luxurious. It is pretty dingy, the furniture is old fashioned, and the room layout is odd to say the least. There were so many couches in a small room which is very strange and makes the whole room very...

The Regal International East Asia sits in a premium location on Hengshan Road. It excels both in service and value. My room on an upper floor (19th) was as clean, well furnished, quiet and as comfortable as I could have desired. If the bed had been a little harder I would not have the slightest idea what could be improved!...

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.
