Housing Hunt: What's Available in Shanghai

Our Weekly Survey of Hot Apartments in Shanghai

For the past few weeks, we've been sharing our favorite three places you can rent in Shanghai, but this week we're upping the levels. There's so many good properties on our housing page, we were having a hard time picking out our top three. So we've picked the very best five to share with you. We've gone for different places from all over the city, but if none of these quite take your fancy, do check out CityWeekend Housing, where you can search by price, size or location. Without further ado here are this week's picks.    


RMB 6,500 Xuhui

For only RMB 6,500 this one bedroom, one bathroom apartment offers some serious value for money. Being a mere five minutes from Changshu Road Station (lines 1/7) means the apartment is situated in a peaceful area of Shanghai, but still close enough to a host of superb malls and shops. The attic area is perfect for storage, but also frees up a lot of space for you to actually live in.  


RMB 12,800 Jing’an

When it comes to location this one bedroom, one bathroom Jing’an property can’t really be beat. Only five minutes’ walk from West Nanjng Road Station (Lines 2/12/13) yet set in a quiet and picturesque area of Jing’an, the apartment is surrounded by a slew of great restaurants and shops. Fully furnished with stylish décor the property already has internet, a TV and oven, along with all the other essentials you could want.


RMB 20,999 Changning                                                                                                                 

When the Shanghai summer turns fierce this air conditioned, balconied apartment complete with an outdoor space won’t let you down. The two bedroom, two bathroom Changning property is precisely seven minutes’ walk from Jiangsu Road Station (lines 2/11), so you’re never far from anywhere. Fully furnished, and fitted with all the key appliances means the stress of moving homes will be minimal if you choose this place.


RMB 21, 000 Huangpu

This spacious 120 m² property has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. In fact it has it all. Pool, Health club, washing and drying machines, under floor heating. The lot. It’s also a casual five minute stroll from Zhenning Road Metro Station (lines 2 and 11) and it’s on the first floor too, which means you can afford a lie in whenever you want one. Complete with chic, modern interiors this apartment is amongst the nicest we’ve seen for its price.


RMB 27,000 Xuhui

At 160m2 the two bedroom, two bathroom Xuhui flat is more than spacious. It’s also only five minutes from Xintiandi, placing it amongst Shanghai’s trendiest areas. Set inside a beautiful, historic apartment complex the property’s interiors are equally sophisticated. The apartment is within walking distance of a trio of metro stations: South Huangpi Road (line 1), South Shaanxi Road (lines 1/10/12) and Xintiandi (lines 10/13) so wherever you have to get to you’ll be there in no time.
