A nod to its historic lane-house location, The Middle House name aims for many things – its blend of hotel and residences, its setting in the centre of Shanghai, and its place among Swire’s The House Collective. All come together, for a composed sense of culture.

Escape from it all and unwind a busy mind in the tranquil ambience of Mi Xun, a day spa in Shanghai. This hidden oasis features a breathtaking swimming pool, 24-hour gym facilities, group yoga sessions and The Lab to shop all your lifestyle needs.
