Jing'an Temple Western Style Cozying Apartment @ Shanghai, China

Looking for a place to stay in Shanghai, China is a nightmare for me. After considering all the options, I decided to book Middle Huaihai Road, Hermes in French Concession. I booked this apartment through Booking.com and it requires PAYMENT ON ARRIVAL. That’s great right!! Shortly after I booked this apartment, the landlord Email her mobile number to stay in touch. After a few days, I messaged her to extend my stay and she informed me she can’t do so as someone else is staying after I leave the apartment. However, to my surprise, she upgraded my stay to Changle apartment with free of charge and its located at French Concession too. 2 days prior to my arrival she messaged me about the exact address and how to arrive here by metro. Jing'an Temple, Western Style Cozying Apartment is located at Changle Road. The landlord was waiting for us at the building gate when we reach there about 9am. He brought us to the room and explained house rules and regulation as well as the attractions surrounding the apartments. It cost us RMB 1900/RM 1059.81 for 5D4N. The place looks exactly the same as the photo posted in Booking.com. Unbelievable, it’s my first time booking an apartment for my stay in oversea and I made a right decision this round.
The room was big and spacious.
 The bed was so comfortable to sleep after our tired flight. The towel and bed sheets are free from stains.
Balcony
Complimentary wine. Thanks for the special arrangements. She sent me a video of this special arrangement in We chat a day before our arrival. Highly appreciated!!
Kitchen
The toilet was clean, but the water pressure is too soft for me. I like to take showers in strong water pressure and also the toilet doesn’t seem to have proper water flow. The water stuck there on the floor until it completely dries off.
Overall, it was a perfect stay for us. Perfect location for travelling as just located just 10 minutes walking distance from the Changshu Rd Station (Exit 6). Small drawback was the toilet and the staircase to the level 6. They don’t have any lights in the staircase area and it's too dark at the night. Imagine you have to climb to level 6 through the dark staircase, it sounds creepy right!!
