The ho­tel

Qantas - - Qnews. -

In a city of more than 24 mil­lion peo­ple, si­lence is a rare and cov­etable com­mod­ity – and you’ll find it at Capella Shang­hai (ho­tel.qan­­lashang­hai) in the chichi for­mer French Con­ces­sion. Plan­e­tree-lined boule­vards, where the mid-1800s French set­tle­ment once flour­ished, are now home to bou­tiques, cafés, restau­rants and bars, while Capella Shang­hai it­self oc­cu­pies a 1930s shiku­men laneway block com­pris­ing 22 lanes lined with nar­row houses trans­formed into op­u­lent vil­las.
