Capella Shanghai Jian Ye Li

Step back in time to the golden era of Shanghai...Discover an urban sanctuary where you least expect it, nestled in the Xuhui District’s last remaining cluster of shikumen townhouses. With only a few of the original shikumen lanes remaining, Capella Shanghai, an all luxury shikumen villa hotel in Shanghai, is proud to protect and evolve the city’s cultural legacy. The design concept, created by Jaya Design International, embodies the spirit of Jian Ye Li - reflected in the fusion of French and Chinese elements, a nod to its heritage, and the golden era during the 1930s.

As one of the most popular luxury hotels in Shanghai, Capella Shanghai Jian Ye Li Hotel will provide you with the best quality service! The Capella Shanghai Jian Ye Li Hotel is located in the Xuhui Historical and Cultural Features Conservation Area of Shanghai and is located in Shanghai's largest existing Shikumen. It will also become the only pure villa urban resort hotel in the city. The Shikumen architecture first appeared in 1860 and is a model of integrating Eastern architecture's history and Western architecture style. Jian Ye Li was originally built by the French real estate company Foncièreet Immobilière de Chine in the 1930s. It is now composed of ultra-luxury Capella hotel, Capella apartment, and lifestyle brand gallery after restoration.
