Donghu Hotel (Dōnghú bīnguǎn) Review
Just off the frenzied shopping street of Huaihai Lu, the Donghu Hotel remains one of Shanghai's best-preserved hotels from the city's heyday in the 1920s. The unbeatable location puts you right in the middle of the Former French Concession, so you have easy access to a host of restaurants and boutiques. The "superior" rooms in Building 7 don't quite live up to their name. We suggest the deluxe rooms across the street at Building 1—with their traditional furniture and dark-wood paneling, these spacious rooms make you feel as if you've stepped back in time.
