Love Hotels for a "hour based" stay in Shanghai

If you try to find a hotel to party for only a short time and not willing to book it for the whole night, than a love hotel could be a great choice for you. 

Unfortunately they are not many of "short time" booking hotels in Shanghai, but we have been lucky to find some already. 

If you know other places, please support us and our visitors and share the information in the comment area below. 

8 Colors - Puxi - Japanese Styled Love Hotel

Shanghai Love Hotel for short time Hotel booking - 8 Colors
Shanghai Love Hotel 8 Colors - Rooms in different style and budget (click to enlarge)

The 8 colors is the only real "love hotel" in Japanese style we found in Shanghai yet (if you know others, please tell us!). They rent out rooms (in 8 different colors ;-) on a hour base, so you can pay for one, two or 3 hours or overnight. They are especially designed for "naughty activities" and their normal target group are the guys from the KTVs around who want to "party" some more intimate with the girls. 

So no online booking option or pre-booking neccesarry. Go there and book a room.

Tip: They will need the passport of BOTH for book a room, so make sure your girl also provide a ID card or passport and don`t forget yours!


Website: 8 colors  (only on Chinese and Japanese)


Rate: starting from 200 RMB for 3 hours up to 600 for 12 or 24 hours (rates different for different luxury level of the rooms)

ZKE Theme Hotel 泽恺逸主题酒店 - Puxi - Stylish Theme Hotel

The ZKE theme Hotel is not really a love hotel, but they also rent out their rooms between 9 am and 9 pm for 4 hour bookings for very reasonable rates. The location is at the corner of Pan Yu Lu and Yan An Xi Lu, directly behind the Longemont hotel. 

Check the pictures gallery and you will see, that they really have set up an amazing design. They provide 70 rooms and all in different designs, for example Paris style, Marilyn Monroe style and so on.

They opened Summer 2015, so all the rooms are new and in very good conditions. There rooms have different size and price ranges for overnight but also for short time. 



  • B-Room (20 sqm, 1,5m bed) night: 300 / 4h: 99 RMB
  • Queen-Room (30 sqm, 2m bed) night: 500 / 4h: 196 RMB

La Casa Hotel Shanghai 上海宝京精品酒店

Thanks to hour supporter 2on1 who provided us this tip, we also can introduce the "La Casa Hotel" for a short time session. They are located also on Yan An Xi Lu, but more to the west end of the street, so that the hotel belongs already to Min Hang district. They have different sized and priced rooms and regarding to 2on1 they are very friendly and tolerant for the "fun side" of the booking. 


  • Overnight between 450 to 700 RMB (depends on room)
  • Short time 3h RMB 288

    last time i checked a place they said i needed to get a license from the local police station before they could let me stay there..i think that's the foreigner rule mentioned below. This was in March '16

    no idea what was the issue when you have been over there, but there is no new "no foreigner" rule there.... We called them and they told us for sure foreigner also can book... only need to bring the passport... that`s it... Missunderstanding or some guy there who not knew how to handle it and used the "Chinese way" to solve the problem: "meiyou le".... every time you want something and they not understand, they simply tell you they don`t have, than problem solved :-))

    So you can try it again next time,

    Tried taking a girl to ZKE on Monday night to be told no foreigners. My Chinese not great but I think the explanation was they no longer had the relevant license. Shame, as I liked their funky rooms, but Rayfond just round the corner and similarly priced so still had some fun.

    I want to possibly use LA Casa hotel since it's close to the airport but when I used the booking page it only shows option and price for nightly rates. Do I just walk in or do I call in?

    Love Hotel - Important Information

    If you go to the love hotel for check in, BOTH need to show their ID or passport, so if the girl did not bring her passport or ID, you will have no chance to check in, and that can be a big frustration, so better be prepared and ask the girl in advance (thanks to Holger for the update)

    Colors Hotel - Love Hotel Update

    We cleared that case now. They did not have the licence to offer their service for foreigners, but we have been able to make them understand it would bring a lot of advantages for them and finally they applied and got the permission now, so there will be no problems like the ones mentioned below any more. I have been there today to make sure it will work out smoothly, and I can confirm, they will rent out rooms for foreigners now. But they will not be able to speak english, but the will know what you want, and they have a price list where you can see rates for one hour, 3 hours and overnight. The rate is more expensive than advertised outside, so now not 178 any more changed to 198 for the cheapest room for 3 hours up to 400 RMB for the bigger and more exclusive room for 3 hours. The also provide one hour or even 24 hours (this will be 800 for the most expensive room). The enviroment is perfect to have fun with a girl, different styled rooms, but all with a good athmosphere, so we think it will be the best place in Shanghai at the moment, if you want to have fun with a girl, but don't want to take her to your place.

    Have fun,

    Hi 2on1, what a pitty you failed. I got the tip from a western escort from our page who went there with a western customers, so there has been a chance for that, but I don't know how it worked for them but not for you. I know some hotels are not allowed to accept foreign customers, because for that they need the "process" for synchronize the booking with the local police station for register the stay, and if they don't provide that, than they are forbidden to accept foreign guest. I guess it was this reason. But I like the idea very much, so I will send a chinese guide to there next time and see, if wecan get some more details and find a solution.

    Enjoy the city,

    Steven thanx for the tip but unfortunately 8 colors hotel is not gf friendly at all. I was blocked yesterday night at checkin with a viet girl. Problem of passport .... I guess it's more easy with a Chinese girl with id.

    check out the colors hotel here in Shanghai, near Jing An Area. This is a typical japanese "short time hotel", they offer different styled "theme rooms" and rent it out on an hour based concept. Not expensive and all the service is exactly focused to your need: have s great short time together with a sexy girl.

    We will add it here on our page soon, but meanwhile you can just google it ;-)

    @2on1: Had a similar "problem" with some girl I met in a massage parlor (not checkout time, but my colleague staying in the room next to mine and sound insulation not really perfect :-) ). Asked the Chinese girl to solve it, she booked a room in a hotel and sneaked me in. The hotel had condoms and other accessories for sale as part of their "minibar", and for Chinese hotels this usually is a sign that they tolerate such business. Whole thing cost 250 extra, so no big deal.

    If only checkout time, negotiating 2pm checkout should never be a problem in any good hotel.

    Hi 2on1,

    Shanghai is not Bangkok, so not easy to find a "hour based hotel", especially if you are westerner, because most of the small hotels don't have the permission to rent out to foreigners and I never heard about one with licence who will calculate hourly based. But if she is your girlfriend, why not just use a app like or, find one hotel for a reasonable price (should be less than 400) book it online, than go there, have fun and leave... for that small amount you should not care if you waste some hours or not, but could be that's just my point of view ;-)

    Have fun,
