Donghu Hotel

70 Donghu Lu, Shanghai, Shanghai Shi, 200031, China

Fodor’s Expert Review

Just off the frenzied shopping street of Huaihai Lu is one of Shanghai's best-preserved hotels from the city's 1920s heyday, with grand rooms in the older guesthouse annex and newer but plainer (and more geared to business travelers) main-building rooms. The location is unbeatable, putting you right in the middle of the Former French Concession, so you have easy access to lots of restaurants and boutiques. Beds throughout the hotel are on the hard side.
