I’m in Shanghai where the powers that be don’t like the blogs very much. Luckily Flickr still works so here we go…Hotel I Love, Shanghai edition.

I’ll write more about my personal experience once I get my jetlag dealt with but for now know that it is one of my new favorite hotels. Between the understated design and the communal kitchen downstairs with free coffee, juices and sodas I definitely feel at home.

from the JIA website:

“Located in a stunning 1920’s European building right on Nanjing Road, JIA’s interiors have been infused with a contemporary yet somehow familiar sense of place, acknowledging that not all travellers travel for business and not all travellers travel for pleasure.

At JIA your travel accommodation is never monotonous – you can choose from a variety of differently colour-themed rooms which are relaxing yet with a sense of energy, all fitted with the latest in-room communication and entertainment technology. Studio rooms are spacious and sassy, Suites are sexy and two Penthouse suites are playfully indulgent.

JIA Shanghai is a joint venture between the pert and petite Ms. Wong and Hong Kong-based Indonesian Businessman John Aryananda. Rooms and suites were designed by award-winning Melbourne-based BURO Architects in association with Hecker Phelan and Guthrie Interiors (HP&G). The Lobby is designed with an eclectic mix of bespoke furniture by award-winning interior designer, André Fu of Hong Kong architectural firm AFSO. Design of JIA Shanghai’s Italian restaurant, ISSIMO is by Hong Kong-based Darryl Goveas of Pure Creative International.”
