Owner: “We are really excited about The Middle House. Each of our properties embraces the spirit of its home city, and The Middle House exemplifies modern-day Shanghai,” said Brian Williams, Deputy Chairman of Swire Hotels.
“The Middle House is our fourth hotel in The House Collective, which welcomes world travellers who seek a luxurious yet unique and personalised experience during their stay.”
The design draws inspiration from the city’s rich heritage of craftsmanship and culture, marrying minimalist style with classical Shanghainese (is there such a word?) elements. Throughout the property, guests will find cultural touches and artwork inspired by Shanghai.
The Middle House also features a 660 sqm top-floor Penthouse overlooking fashionable Nanjing West Road. The immaculately designed two-bedroom suite offers private terraces, a lounge and an exclusive event space with a private kitchen – an ideal venue to celebrate special occasions and host dinner parties and product launches.
For longer stays, The Middle House Residences are an ideal choice. Ranging from 55 to 110 sqm, they offer all the comforts and modern luxury of The Middle House, with the convenience of apartment-style living. The additional kitchen and laundry facilities provide convenience within the proximity of the hotel.
“The House Collective has a loyal fan base of savvy and discerning travellers,” said Michael Faulkner, General Manager of The Middle House. “We’re very excited to be able to host them in Shanghai and build a new network in this fantastic city”.
