Amidst bustling shanghai - the largest in the world, this was a great return back to tranquility and sense of roots simply by the way you fell while in the place build and completed in 1936! Even the area completed in 2002 was aimed at giving the same vintage vibe! I used to be based in shanghai for three years down the road at the heritage buildings of Shanghai theater academy, so it was my first time revisiting for business and needless to mention I was in need of heritage feel, so this not only is perfect for this time around but I consider it for future returns vs Peninsula and tHe four seasons hotels ~
The hotel does not have any facility. I could not have breakfast because the restaurant does not open until 7:00am. Staff speaks limited English and not at all helpful. Metro station is about 15 minutes walk. The street is dark and not good restaurant nearby. Once they add the tax the room rate goes up.
Great location for this trip. Very easy to get around the city. Hotel has good breakfast. Beautiful garden at back the hotel, we really enjoyed. Only thing is hotel getting old and needs maintenance. Our room shower head doesn't work well, we ask for change room but because the hotel was fully booked so couldn't change our room.
The incredible building makes this a really nice break from bland international chains. Staff behavior is poor, the internet is awful (super unstable), and the luxurious bathrooms (marble and all) aren't as clean or functional as you'd like them. Great value however, and I go back quite often.
Villa Moller is a boutique hotel with an interesting history and loads of character in the popular French concession. It is within walking distance of the metro making the major tourist sites in Shanghai easily accessible. However the front desk staff have very limited English with a lax attitude in servicing their clients. If it were not for a conscientious English speaking bellman (James) we would have reduced our stay and moved to another hotel. The breakfast is Chinese oriented and of poor quality. we had to continually get up from our table for coffee refills although four staff members stood in the room chatting with each other and paying minimal attention to their customers. The rooms are so small you will be challenged to move around without tripping over luggage. we will not return to this hotel on future trips to shanghai.
LOCATION IS GOOD FOR TOURIS PLACES THE BREAKFAST BUFFEST IS GOOD ENOUGH ROOM CLEAN AND QUIET I MISS A SAFETY DEPOSIT BOX INSIDE THE ROOM FOR MY COMPUTER, THE SPACE THEY HAVE FOR THIS IS TOO SMALL AND I DO NOT FEEL TO SAFE. THE ROOM IS CONFORTABLE AND CLEN
Marketed as a fairytail adventure but in reality it is an old dirty building, inefficient unattentive staff. I booked 2 nights but stayed only one. Definately not a five star hotel.
This is a good hotel for people who would accept a trade-off and give up certain modern conveniences for a taste of old Shanghai atmosphere. The hotel was build in 1936 by Eric Moller. Constructing a mansion in Shanghai on the eve of the Second World War must be eccentric if not crazy, but there he did it for his daughter who wanted to raise horses, and the mansion came with a formidable stable. The mansion was bought and converted into a hotel, then shut down, and bought out and re-opened. We stayed in the main house, room 1201, a junior suite, which came with a jacuzzi. The room was bright and cheerful but to reach it one needs to take stairs. The room is not really cheap either, but for a taste of something different, it is worth considering.
