5 Best Boutique Hotels In Shanghai, China

Updated: March 22, 2021

One of China’s most visited cities is Shanghai. It is full of culture and has so much to offer to every person who walks the streets. Known as the Oriental Paris, Shanghai has so many different aspects colliding together in the perfect way.

Because Shanghai is such a big and intimidating city, how you go about exploring it and staying in it is something important to consider. Boutique hotels are smaller accommodations that provide more personal, intimate experiences. Staying at one of these establishments is the best way to not get lost in the noise of Shanghai.

Here are five of the best boutique hotels to stay in the next time you visit Shanghai!

 

Middle House Shanghai

The Middle House

To kick start our list, we have The Middle House. This boutique hotel is made of an interesting mix of Chinese and European styles and has over 200 rooms. This is actually on the higher end of rooms available when comparing it to other boutique hotels. This means that it will not be super hard to get a room as it can be with other options.

One of the biggest perks of The Middle House is the fact that there are three restaurants connected to the buildings. There is an Italian joint, a cafe, and an upscale Chinese restaurant. This is a big thing to keep in mind because if you need a bite to eat without navigating the busy streets of Shanghai, this will come in handy.

As the name implies, there is an awesome spa attached to the hotel. This is definitely worth checking out to add some serene relaxation to your visit.
