I took my parents on a trip to Shanghai and thankfully they are also not very picky with where they will stay and sleep (just like me). We all had the same criteria whenever we’re looking for a place, it should have hot water, WIFI, and public transportation is very accessible.
I took some nights scrolling through Airbnb and found a place with a good price and perfect location.

Aline was a great host! She replied super fast and was very accommodating. Her place was located literally accross iAPM mall and a subway station. There are also a lot of shops and a convenience store nearby so it was also fun to walk around the area.
This is how our room looked like!
Across Aline’s place is iAPM mall and a subway station:
If you don’t cross the street and walk on your left as soon as you get out, you’ll see a lot of stores and this kind of road :
My dad also noticed there was a Gentle Monster and a Line Store/Cafe so we spent a few hours there.
(ps. there are a lot of shops around the area – Fila, Puma, Nike, Adidas, Uniqlo etc!)
He knows I LOVE Gentle Monster so he was the one who told me about it!
I also mentioned that there was a Line store/cafe so we went inside and took some photos.

Aline’s place is definitely a good choice if you’re not too picky with how the place should look like. We loved the place because it was comfy enough and the location was just perfect.
