It is an old lanehouse apartment, as such it comes with the quirks of such old structures. A lanehouse is barely insulated, therefore it has barely any soundproofing. You will hear your neighbours conversations. They will hear yours. As such, please be considerate after 10pm.
The stairs leading up to the third floor are narrow and steep. The corridors leading up to the apartment are narrow and a shared area with local ayis cooking there. The friendly ground floor ayi is a fish monger and sets her business up outside her apartment (she is very conscious about keeping the area clean) .
However, once you get past all the local features (charming in a way), you will find your own little oasis up on the third floor. It has everything you need - wifi, xiaomi box including access to many English movies and TV shows, oven, microwave, washer/dryer, air-conditioner, a shower with good water pressure and continuous hot water.
If you are looking for a super cute, super charming and super convenient place to base yourself for your Shanghai adventures, we welcome you to our home.
