Its quite an experience to stay in this hotel. The rooms are all newly decorated. I was lucky to get upgraded to a suite room and it was huge. classic decor, huge and comfortable bed. common areas are also well kept with a general feel of being in a mid 19th century Shanghai mansion. over all an excellent hotel.

Aaron's House is a little hidden, but once you find your way there you won't want to leave. Mu husband and I found the location to be perfect. Not only is it just a few hundred metres from the closest Metro station, but it sits amongst what I would consider to be a real Shanghai neighbourhood. There are quite a few places to eat nearby, including a little Hotpot restaurant only 100 metres away which was fantastic - turn left out of the hotel, stay on the same side of the road and walk about 100m. Also, People's Square is only a ten minute walk away and The Bund, a fifteen minute walk.

The rooms are oh so grand (we felt like royalty) and the staff could not do enough for us. They were extremely polite and nothing was too much trouble. We loved walking up and down the grand staircase each day rather than taking the lift because it was in keeping with the setting of the hotel. Despite the loud honking of horns on Jinling Road outside, inside Aarons House was always peaceful and quiet.

In my books, this hotel gets ten out of ten.

The situation is perfect : close to People's Square, in a busy street, full of shops, restaurants, supermarkets.. You can easily visit the whole Huangpu district by foot !
The hotel itself is really amazing : rooms are really huge, the beds highly comfortable, the decoration is beautiful, the bathroom unbelievable and the staff is perfect ! Helpful and always giving you good advices.
Only the breakfast buffet could be improved with a larger choice of dishes and be replenished more often.
But for sure, for my next trip in Shanghai, I will come back again to this hotel !

I could not say enough great things about this hotel. It is gorgeously finished, the decor is full of beautiful old shanghai-French details. Considering we are paying for reasonable price, what we got was totally out of our expectation and totally blew us away!
Aaron's house is conveniently located near metro station (line 8) mere 200 meters of walking, the hotel is also a stone throw from the local famous eatery street, which fills with restaurants (few even opens 24 hours).
In comparison with the known hotel chains around the similar price range, our rooms are way spacious (one with his & her own basins; where the other room we had a separate dressing room). There is free WIFI connection in each room, with a huge flat screen tv that can act as a computer screen. There is also a tablet in the room that gives you local information and attractions. There are also many free movies to choose from when we qneeded some down-time to just relax in our hotel rooms!
The hotel staff are very friendly and quite eager to assist. It probably helped that I speak chinese. However each staff can speak reasonable English. With a little patient and some common curtesy, I found these staff really tried to go out their ways to assist all our needs!
Aaron's house will no doubt have my repeat business as well as my highest recommendations to everyone who plans to visit shanghai. This is one great hotel, a hidden gem that is great in price and has much to offer!

We chose this hotel primarily because it carries the name of my son; but what a lucky find. Aaron's hotel is simply beautiful. From the marble floored lobby to the tastefully furnished spacious rooms, the hotel punches far above its weight. Believe every photo because that is exactly how Aaron's House looks.
Check in was simple and really efficient. We had a little bit of trouble checking out as the girl on the desk did not speak English and didn't understand that our room had already been paid for through a third party but it was sorted. Small problem in the scheme of things.
The rooms are really beautiful, the decor luxurious and everything considered to its smallest detail. We slept like logs each night we stayed.
The metro is 5 mins walk away. Turn right out of the hotel and walk the length of Jinling Road. Turn right at the end onto the main road, walk until the main intersection and it's on your left across the road. On the way back it's easy to miss the turn into Jinling Road especially in the dark so if you come across the Westin (huge building with lotus flower on the top) you've gone too far. Jinling Road is first on the left.
From the hotel you can easily walk to the Bund (when you get to metro intersection don't cross the road, just turn left and keep walking. The buildings and facades soon change from utilitarian Chinese to the glory of the past) and from there take the metro across the river to the Bladerunner-esque skyline of modern Shanghai. We had tea at the Peace Hotel just before we ventured across and we really felt as if we were moving from the grandeur of one era to another.

You must do one of the views from the tops of the towers. We did the JinMao building which is not the highest (the bottle opener building is) and for 150 each you can whizz to the top in ear-popping seconds and then suffer the vertigo that goes with not just looking out at the rest of Shanghai but from looking down into the atrium of the Hyatt hotel. We went just before it turned dark so got the best of the city before and after all the lights illuminate the city with their glow. The photo pack they do for 100 is really worth it for the information book that goes with it alone.
The fake market (off the science and tech museum metro stop) is fun but really, really bargain. They start with ridiculous prices.
And if you get time catch the Shanghai Circus World show (off its own metro stop) which is not a circus but some of the most jaw-droppingly exciting acrobatics you'll see. Get your tickets early in high season to try and get the cheaper seats as the auditorium is small and the the expensive seats simply not worth it.
Getting about is really easy. The metro is very user-friendly with an English version and tickets range from 3-7 yuan, but you have to go a long way to spend 7. We had to take a taxi from the airport because of a late flight (cost an eye-watering 215 and that was a metered taxi) but caught the metro and Maglev (magnetic train) which was just as fast, far more fun and only cost 8 for the metro and 50 each for the train.

This hotel is super charming and provides a taste of old Shanghai. My room is tastefully decorated, spacious, and has a nice large bathroom with clawfoot tub. The breakfast is also quite satisfying with many choices and strong coffee! It's a great hotel at a great value.

As business travel always involves an element of surprise when it comes to the hotel, I was taking the taxi from the airport to the hotel ready for anything. However, even with a mindset like that, I was not prepared for what Aaron's House had to offer.

The rooms are NOTHING like you could expect from a hotel in Shanghai centre and feel more like a Bed&Breakfast in the UK! The bathrooms are spectacular and the hotel interior has that vintage feel to it. Central location - EvERYTHING is close and the breakfasts actually offer a decent range of "western" options and thats always welcome when in China.

Would definitely recommend!

Excellent propriety just of Huaihai Road one of the main roads in Shanghai. Old European apartment building renovated but still keeping the 30's charm. Close to Metro, shops, restaurant. It was a bit of a misunderstanding related to the room however Peter at the reception was very kind and professional and resolved the issue in a very satisfactory way.
The only con is that there are no English language channels on TV but Internet is very fast.

When we booked this hotel, there weren't any reviews that we could find, but we took a chance and we didn't regret it. The hotel is in a great location; a two minute walk to the metro/tube, walking distance to Yu Yuan Gardens, People's Square, Nanjing Road and the Bund. It is also beautifully decorated. We loved the huge comfortable bed. We didn't see any other guests during our stay which was a little strange at first, but it felt like we had the hotel to ourselves!

Our rating is four instead of five because the hotel advertises itself as 5 star, but that is slightly misleading. Whilst the room, decor and location were fantastic, there weren't any porters by the doors to help you carry your luggage, there was no concierge as such, the staff did not speak good English (we had difficulty communicating at times). We also had to check out early and there was absolutely no hot water, so we didn't get to have a shower.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Aaron's House and we would recommend it.

Aaron's house is a recently renovated hotel that's walking distance to Yuyuan Garden, Huxin Pavilion, the Shanghai Museum, the Bund (15 min.) and more. The room we stayed in (311) was fantastic. Richly appointed and reasonable rates. Some staff speak English but not all. Even so, we had no problems and the staff were very friendly.

I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it.
