We stayed 2 nights in this hotel. On the positive side: the location by the French Concession is nice, the area is quiet, the gardens are lovely, the common areas are attractive. We ate in the restaurant one night, and the food was good and...More
On our annual trip to Shanghai we choose to stay at the Anting Villa Hotel. We've been staying there for several years now and not much has changed, if anything. Same carpet, same opera singer recording in the lobby and hall - that tape must...More

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.
