The rooms are huge and beautiful appointed.

To enjoy this wonderful city while staying in a boutique hotel truly makes a difference as the city can be extremely intimidating at times but... More

We loved our room here - beautiful wooden floors, sitting area, balcony and huge bathroom. We were really wowed when we walked in. The hotel is tucked down a lane - a little hard to find but it feels like a peaceful little oasis in Shanghai. The location on the edge of the French Concession is great. Staff were lovely.... More

Let me first say that Le Sun Chine tricky to find (down a hidden little alley way that most cab drivers didn't know about) - however this is part of it's charm!! It is a boutique hotel with a retro speakeasy-like feel. Incredilble decor, great service, phenomenal specialty cocktails at the lush dark wood bar. Food was quite good, they... More

stay for two days at the hotel. can feel they are trying very hard but it's just not enough. I pay for RMB3000+15% a night with breakfast.

This hotel, part of the Relais & Chateaux chain, was a jewel. We arrived from a stay at the Ritz-Carlton Portman which was wonderful but was such a 5 star chain kind of accommodation.

This is a mixed feeling of staying with Le Sun Chine. Location could be difficult for most of the tourist new to the city. However, once you get acquainted with the district, it may only take you a 15mins comfortable walk to either one of the two nearby metro stations and the city is within your easy reach.

The whole place is beautiful with the classic old Shanghai style. It’s like a time machine which brought you back to the 1920s’. I spent my birthday in Le Sun Chine with a wonderful experience.
