Built in 1930, designed by Belgian architects, the King Albert Apartments have seen many glorious days and famous names. They are among the first ones to be protected as heritage architecture by the city of Shanghai. You'll definitely vote a "like" for the Art Deco facade, thoughtful design of landscape, and french flavored interior such like high ceilings. It's wonderful to hear birds singing on 100yr old trees out of your window, in morning sunshine. Anyway a rare beautiful experience in a crazy and busy city like Shanghai. Especially, when you think about the location: at the heart of the city, surrounded by luxury shops and fancy places of the french concession.
We did some effort to conserve the original beauty of this apartment, kept all the original characteristic features such like the glass doors, metal framed windows and original hard wood floor, even some vintage furnitures and decorations of the previous owner to create nostalgic funky tones. At the same time, modern conveniences such as open kitchen are added to provide daily comfort.
- broad band internet with wifi
- high definition TV/free movies with cable box
- microwave, fridge,electronic stove and kitchenware
- 24 hour hot water
- clean towels, shampoo and showergel

well i'm a globe-trotter :P - born in China, but German and American on official paper, studied and lived in europe and north america, now working on a project in shanghai.
Majored in law, sociology, psychology and neuroscience, holding degrees from elite universities, now i'm doing something completely different: which is being a writer and an entrepreneur at the same time.
I'm a true traveller/backpacker, my favorite countries include india,syria and parts of africa, next destination: iran/irak and latin america.
I love old houses in Shanghai and could not bear to see them running down in wrong hands, so when I encounter them I try to renovate and give them new lives. They now turned into more than one lovely apartments in shanghai, feel free to check them out under my profile "view all listings"。
