On paper this hotel has everything you could ask for: prime location in the Former French Concession, comfortable beds and an indoor swimming pool. In reality, it could use some updating. The rooms are dark and a little dingy, though fairly well sized; the decor is bland and overly reliant on the color beige. Still, the staff was friendly and the rooms are clean. Nearby are Wagas and Element Fresh restaurants, both of which are good options for travelers looking for healthy Western food options. The hotel is also a short walk from the Line 1 and Line 10 metro lines, making it a convenient commute to other areas of the city.

The location is by far the best quality of the Donghu Hotel. Located just steps away form some fo Shanghai's most popular restaurant this former french concession hotel is a good choice if you're looking for an affordable place in the expat hub. The former french concession is home to many western restaurants and bars so staying in this part of town as opposed to the Bund area is nice for visitors who'd like to see more of what Shanghai has to offer. The hotel in itself is a bit old for my tastes and the rooms look and feel like they need to have a bit of work done. The staff is very welcoming and helpful, something that can be hard to find in independent hotel in China. If you're set on staying in the former french concession the Donghu Hotel is a good option if you're looking to save a few bucks although there are some very cute boutique hotels in the area as well.

Good luck finding the right place to check in, this property has about 17 buildings, on both sides of the street. Luckily the staff are pretty helpful with confused tourists. A couple of the buildings were first built as a residence (in the 1930's), then some as apartments, and then some more were added on, during the 1950's it was the commercial affairs office for the Soviet Union. Now all the buildings have been restored and are a guesthouse/hotel. The rooms could be more modern, but I guess they are vintage... there's a cool little japanese place downstairs of one of the hotels, and there are loads of great restaurants on Donghu Lu. Sichuan Citizen is a personal favorite.
