Hongkou District

Hotels near Hongkou District, Shanghai, China .

This is one of the most urban districts in Shanghai, the home of famous hotels, shops, restaurants and schools. The district was occupied by Japanese during World War II. The district is famous for being the home of 20,000 Jewish refugees in what was referred to as the Shanghai ghetto. Anyone visiting the district should not miss a stop at the Ohel Moishe Synagogue, one of the two remaining synagogues in Shanghai, although it no longer holds any religious services. Art galleries and museums containing evidence of the Russian Jews who inhabited this part of the city are also found in the district.

Those planning on seeing such attractions as the Bund, Huangpu River, the Sichuan Road Commercial Area or Hong Kou Stadium can find accommodations in the district, since all these attractions are all within easy reach from Hongkou. Accommodations available to visitors include the Guang Dong hotel, the Huajing Business hotel, the Shanghai Baolong Hotel, and the Heng Sheng Peninsula International Hotel. The New Asia hotel provides three-star accommodations and is the oldest hotel in Shanghai. Most of these hotels are also just a few minutes away from the Metro.

The Hongkou district is home to Broadway Mansions, Astor House hotel and the Lu Xun Memorial. It is also where Fuxing high school, considered to be one of the top high schools in the city, is located. A middle school, the Hongkuo Experiment School is also in the district.
