“This is the newest hotel of the House Collective brand and the styling is very unique; all the rooms feature a master switch rope by the bed to turn everything off. The hotel has three restaurants, two of which have outdoor space, making them a relaxing and interesting place to dine. Breakfast is served in Café Grey Deluxe in the main hotel building where there’s also a nice lounge and bar area.”
Located in Shanghai’s historic Dazhongli neighbourhood, The Middle House is a luxury hotel tucked away near the high-end retailers and giant malls of Nanjing Road West. Blending hotel with private residences and Chinese style with Italian minimalism, designer Piero Lissoni has created a modern design masterpiece.
The Middle House offers 111 guestrooms and suites, plus 102 long-stay residences. Rooms have an understated elegance, with a serene, muted palette, subtle Chinese design elements and state-of-the-art technology. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the city, while the Gallery Suite and Penthouse include outdoor terraces.
Café Grey Deluxe offers breakfasts and international cuisine, while Fresca dishes up casual Italian food, and Sui Tang Li is a contemporary Chinese serving Cantonese, Sichuan and Shanghainese dishes.
The hotel’s location close to People’s Square and The Bund make it an excellent base for exploring the city, while its spa and indoor heated pool offer the perfect respite after a busy day.
