Lanson Place is absolutely a perfect place to stay if you want to have a beautifully furnished 2.5 bedroom apartment that is clean and well equipped. Our apt. had a balcony that spanned from the living room to our master bedroom, with a gorgeous view of the city lights of Shanghai. All the rooms were a good size, and it came with everything we needed, including a washer and dryer! Breakfast was included in a room near the gym, but it was not in such a great part of the complex, and the food/coffee was mediocre. The lobby is modern and contemporary, and the location is near subway stations, trendy shops and fun restaurants. It was perfect, and I only wish we could have stayed there longer!
Had a short stay here for 1 night. Location is great as it's a couple of blocks from Xintiandi. The suites are large and comfortable, with 2 large bedrooms, a fully functional kitchen, and large living and dining areas. I used the microwave to reheat some leftovers from dinner, which was great. Too bad I didn't stay longer to enjoy it. The staff downstairs were very courteous.
It was also one of the places in Shanghai where Facebook and Google were not blocked by the Great Firewall of China.
For the amount of money I paid, this was the best value in town
