JIA Shanghai (Jiā shànghǎi) Review
In a handsome 1920s building on Nanjing Xi Lu, JIA Shanghai's unprepossessing exterior masks its elegantly styled interior. The 47 rooms and suites are thoughtfully designed and just a touch over the top, making a stay here an experience in itself. Every room is equipped with a kitchen area for a pleasant, homey experience. The service is very good for China, though not quite world-class yet. Generally, the experience is smooth and unobtrusive, welcoming guests without destroying the sense of comfortable privacy. Issimo, the in-house restaurant, is genuinely extraordinary, with impeccable interiors and superb food.
