Frances's apartment was like home for me during the short trip to Shanghai. The convenient public transport nearby, the spacious guest room, the neat and tidy apartment, the beautiful view from the balcony.. all made me spend time like a local, in a relaxed, peaceful environment. They generously provided me with everything that a traveller would need and clear house instructions even though they were out of town at the moment. It would be my pleasure if I stay in Frances's apartment again later and meet them. :)

Nice experience! The location is quite central and convenient. Many bars and restaurants around. The room is clean and the bed is super soft. The host Frances is very kind and warm-hearted. She gave us many advice for some nice places to visit. BTW her Chinese is so good. There is nothing difficult for us to communicate.

Frances and Simon were excellent hosts. I´ve stayed with them for 6 weeks and it was great. They always helped me if needed any help or recommendations. Both made my stay in Shanghai a lot easier. The location of the apartment is great. Many different restaurants, bars and cafes are located in the French Concession. It is really nice to walk around in the French Concession, especially because it is quite calm in contrast to the rest of Shanghai. It is really easy to get to the apartment fromm the airport and also to get to all the attractions in Shanghai. The view from the apartment is amazing, so it is worth it to climb up to the 7th floor. I have to say it is not that bad and you get used to it. I highly recommend this apartment to everybody who wants to have a great time in Shanghai.

Fran was an excellent host. Simon was also a fantastic host. Together they helped me with any questions I had from getting around the city to opening a Chinese bank account. They are truly warm and welcoming people, and I cannot speak highly enough about them. Arriving in Shanghai can be overwhelming, but my transition was very smooth because I stayed with these two guys whom I now consider friends. The location cannot be beat, plenty of wonderful restaurants and things to do in the French Concession. You cannot beat the amenities and comfort of this AirBnB. Worth 5 times the price.

Great experience! Pre-arrival communication was great from Frances and Simon which allowed a very smooth moved-in. The suite was tidy and lovely, the room was very organized and roomy. I enjoyed the views from both the room and the suite's windows. Frances was away so I only met Simon. He is a very kind and helpful host. He suggested the most ideal spot to photograph the bund's night view and a nearby restaurant for dinner. He knows the city and he will help you:) The best part is that the apartment is only about a few minute walk from the Changshulu subway station, this line connects with essentially every attraction and destination you might want to go in Shanghai. Also, there's quite a lot of restaurants nearby and also a 7-11. The only downside that I could think of though is that the suite is located on the 7th floor and there's no elevator. However, if you are travelling with less than one luggage, you are good! It's definitely not so challenging at all plus it's a really good cardio! Therefore a 4.5/5 for this lovely listing!

My Dad stayed in SH for 3 days, and Frances had been an excellent host! She provided detailed travel guide to my dad helping him to commuting from pudong airport to the apartment in a most efficient way. Checkin and check out was easy,short walking distance to subway & super convenient. Frances was kind enough to share her metro pass . The room was nice and clean just as described. will definitely stay over again when travelling to Shanghai next time. PS: Frances speaks perfect Mandarin! 房东会讲中文,人很nice. 房间干净整齐,交通非常方便. 下次还会再来!
