Since we were visiting our daughter, location was of utmost importance -- this apartment was almost directly across the street, so very convenient for us in the heart of the charming former French Concession neighborhood close to a multitude of restaurants, shopping, metro station and many sights. Finding the actual apartment could be a slight challenge if you are not familiar with the Lane House set up -- we might have thought we were in the wrong location if not for the detailed instructions and photos provided by the host. The electronic key pad made entry/exit and check-in/out easier as no actual keys were exchanged. The apartment is up two flights of stairs which should be noted. The apartment is as pictured, very clean and pleasantly decorated with all that you need for a short stay in Shanghai. WIFI worked great. The kitchen was equipped with the bare essentials; nothing more, but we ate out so not an issue. There is a small refrigerator and a washer (but note no dryer), both of which were convenient to have. The bed is very comfortable. We appreciated having a supply of soaps, shampoo, and travel toothbrushes, even tho we brought our own, it's always a nice touch. Although I would have liked better communication with the host, overall we really enjoyed our stay, and everything about the apartment worked out great for us.
