As the historical streets and mollted walls are replaced by high-rise buildings and modern highways, many cities are gradually losing their original characters and cultural pedigree. When,all of a sudden, you turned about, round the corner, in the midst of prosperity and the precipitation of time, there is The Study, which pauses the footsteps of travellers to appreciate the city’s ancient rhyme and contemporary spirit.
Located in the old Haishu District among historical lanes, delicate gardens and Jiangnan courtyard houses which reminisce about the period of the early 20th century of the Republic of China. 17 guest rooms, exquisitely designed with a chic taste of extravagance, are dedicated to make the experience the most memorable. With a hidden entrance, the guests shall not be disturbed in this tranquil environment but relax and enjoy the time in The Study. Guests with reservations are picked up by classic rickshaws and welcomed by our enthusiastic hosts.
With a posh archaic style, blending the inner and outer areas, there is a meticulous attention to the finest details. Interactions between the public and private space lead us to the blissful dining experience in Julian, the sedate domesticity in the boundless library and the contemplation on the vicissitudes of life in the meditation room.
There are many different ways for you to discover the beauty of this city. Come and stay in The Study for a few days, submerge in reading when it is rainy and stroll along the lanes when it is sunny. The indulgent blend of culture and delicacy is here only for you exclusively.
