Magnolia Bed & Breakfast (Bái yùlán)

Magnolia Bed & Breakfast (Bái yùlán) Review

At the intersection of five tree-lined streets in the Former French Concession, the Magnolia is a charming little B&B that's perfect if you want to be in the center of the action. Because the building is a 1930s lane house, the five rooms here are on the small side, but the lively neighborhood will keep you busy all day. Half the block is very local, with a chaotic vegetable market and elderly Shanghainese chatting up a storm. The other half is lined with expat-centric bars and restaurants, so there are plenty of places to eat. The street can get noisy, especially at the weekends, and so Magnolia provides earplugs. Pros: great location, rich in character; a taste of local culture. Pros: it can be loud; there's no 24-hour service.
