This 19-room hotel is ideal for the nonconformist who wants cultural immersion into old China, but not without the modern comforts, high design, and personalized service of a luxury hotel. Chai Living offers something totally unique to the well-traveled tastemaker: a small collection of well-appointed serviced apartments housed in the run-down Embankment Building along quiet Suzhou Creek. Guests here live side-by-side with other Embankment residents, mostly charming elderly locals who practice their Tai Chi in the communal courtyard downstairs. A stay here is a fantastic way to experience a quickly vanishing era of old Shanghai.
