This seems like a compound with exactly the amenities I need. In addition to being placed downtown Shanghai, their service seems to be just what I need. To everyone who reads this: it´s a BIG difference on choosing a company that has service apartments and a compound with “normal” apartments.
If you enjoy 24/7 service with people cleaning your apartment weekendly, food ordering etc., a service apartment is something for you.
An apartment at Arcadia is an ideal way to spend several months (or years) in Shanghai. Great and conventient location, very helpful and professional management and I would actually say that the apartments don´t cost as much as other service compounds in Shanghai.
The apartments are bright and modern (as the commcercials for this compound also says), it has a tennis court and a great gym with all the equipment you would need. A great place to live for those of you that are eager to do some sports while living in Shanghai.
There is a small 7/11 convenience store adjacent to the north gate which we visited quite often. And if you aren´t good enough in mandarin to call some restaurants, you can just ask the staff to do it for you. I would highly recommend Arcadia after I´ve lived here for some months already.
