yes indeed! to all the other positive reviews. The beauty is that now there is a fluent English speaker on board who is bright and interesting and can get you settled and answer questions and be available by phone and internet to help if you get in a bind. Neighborhood terrific: you get real China with dramatically less pollution and din of downtown Shanghai, which is a 20 minute subway ride or cab ride (depends on time of day) away. Im returning this summer with group of 9 kids, and will stay here on way in and out. What a perfect spot to get acclimated to China going in, and what a perfect apartment to collapse in after a day, week and in our case, month of going local in China. Air conditioning with all creature comforts! Trees and quiet outside! A quick subway ride to walk the Bund at night, and a safe area to walk home. What's not to love about this place? I know: if you aren't a strong walker, I'd stay elsewhere. I wouldn't bring my mom, 80, here. She has a bad back, and leans against the cart for support when she walks. If you can walk a half mile with ease, you should be fine.
