Old Shanghai’s Most Opulent Dens
Utterly unique.Enchantingly opulent.Completely captivating. Step into the private reception room … and be swept back in time to the golden age of the ‘Paris of the East’. As the phonograph crackles into life with the songs of opera diva and former guest Mei Lanfang, a world of art deco wonders, swinging jazz bands and glamorous gangsters beckons.
Designed by the French architect Lafayette in 1932 and located in the vibrant heart of the historic French Concession, this luxuriously restored heritage boutique hotel offers the city’s most authentic experience of ‘Old Shanghai’. Formerly headquarters of Shanghai vice boss Du Yuesheng, the Mansion Hotel was once the nerve centre of an opium empire and scene of some of roaring Shanghai’s most decadent parties. Hundreds of artifacts and photographs attest to its colourful past, as you relax into its lavish modern-day incarnation.
Prepare to be transported to perhaps the most exciting and exotic era the world has ever known.
This Mansion has many rooms … and many stories. Which will be yours?
