Having been travelling in China for more than 50 times and staying in many hotels, this one was a pleasant surprise. Compared to many more luxurious hotels in Shanghai with zero personality and much higher price, Anting Villa has an interesting charming atmosphere, almost aristocratic, with decent price.
Hotel keeps probably low profile and has not become as popular as it has potential for. For me it was a pleasant experience: beautiful old building, wonderful inner court, classic music heard in the lobby, peaceful location in middle of the nice French concession area, Hengshan Road metro station 5 minutes away.
Breakfast was good and service everywhere was excellent, even with some lacking English skills.
Only one irritating notice and not for the hotel but for me: why haven't I found this hotel already years ago?
Very much recommended!More
