    The hotel is most satisfying to me. The staff service attitude is very good with the whole room. This hotel is worth staying again. After the stay, this price is worth giving, very satisfied.

    Very charming & discreet property. The scents in the room is very soothing & memorable. Amazing hospitality from the staff.

    The weather during my visit was unbearable hot & humid

    As a Shanghainese, Shi Ku Men is a part of our memories. When I was a child, my relatives, classmates, some of them lived in such kind of Shi Ku Men, but old and crowded...but now, it is luxury. I enjoyed the stay on my birthday, I like the clean room and warm service, a small bday party can be held in living room, free mini bar! Fantastic experience!

    Even the guest need to pay the parking fee...

    The staff was very professional, internationally trained, but a little stiff. The bedding is comfortable. Good for families due to separate floor spaces.

    Being an expensive property with good critical write ups and traveler reviews, Capella turned out to be surprisingly disappointing. The idea sounds well and good, a hotel made from Shikumen restoration, and we chose this place primarily for its historical lineage. Unfortunately the design failed to realize this story. The restoration itself, as another reviewer has mentioned, feels like a movie set - pristine, perfect, unfeeling. I don't know exactly what was lost in translation, but whatever was unique is now perfect identical rows. The villa themselves are very vertical and narrow, and with five floors of it a little claustrophobic. I'm sure this honors the original houses, but the combination of the small space with a very conservative grand interior design doesn't help the small intimate space (marble bathroom typical of expensive Chinese properties). It feels like they were designing for a standard five star hotel instead of using a much bolder, thoughtful design tailored to the difficult space, or just combine the two villas if you're going for grandiose. If the design couldn't tell the story, I was hoping to get it from the library or other places in the hotel that would point to the history, but not a single book or some subtle exhibit is featured. When I mentioned this to the staff in the end when asked for feedback, one is gracious enough to give me a book on Shikumen. Ironically, it is a photography book, which while interesting, doesn't have much content. Money was thrown in on this project, but not a loving hand and respect to an interesting past. This makes other small things like bad coffee at the restaurant, an ok breakfast, and rough bathroom towels somewhat elementary mistakes for a luxury hotel. Perhaps more time is need for the Capella to find its voice.

    Fantastic accomodation - nature and city in one. Check in was a breeze and they prepared well in advance. Staff are all courteous and breakfast was great too!

    Stairs...small issue but with small kids, it’s always a worry. Would have liked a real pool but the vitality pool was fun enough for the kids as well. Food option in hotel is not a lot, normally order in room dining but this time skipped it as the option is very limited.
