We love the location of the hotel and the property itself. It is one of those typical garden properties at the heart of the French concession. It is quiet but close to many cafes and boutique shops. The rooms are all decorated with the old nostalgic Shanghai style. However, I don’t think they have been maintaining the rooms properly because you can see some bathroom wallpapers are peeling. The hotel entrance is way to dark, they should really brighten it up, the reception needs to improve. Overall a nice place to stay for few days when you are in Shanghai especially you don’t want to stay in those big international hotels.

This hotel is filthy. The staff cannot speak English and the rooms are disgusting. We stayed here for 1 night and never again. The location is poor. This was not a very pleasant experience. I would rate this hotel 1 star. This was the view from our hotel room. Poor service, poor breakfast and poor customer service.

What a delightful old restaurant! Apartment the building is over 100 years old and Dr Sun Zhong Shan lived there before, hence the name Le Sun Chine. As always there is a surprise dish that I have never had before, even after spending 10 years living in China: large shrimp in a jar that steams it with a delicious sauce. Highly recommended!

I have to give this hotel only an average rating because of the poor, almost non existent service. The historical house itself is quite charming, with beautiful interiors. The rooms are huge with massive showers and beds are comfortable. However, carpets are stained, wifi is very bad, and I only found one English television channel. The hotel is close to the center of the French Concession, one of my favorite areas in Shanghai, so within walking distance to many good restaurants. The hotel is part of the Relais and Chateaux brand, but you would hardly know it. Almost nobody speaks English, so this makes staying there quite frustrating. Breakfast is served in your room, so be sure to book it the night before (they never tell you that!) On a positive note, the bar is amazing and they serve up fantastic cocktails! Would I go back? Probably not..

The room is confy, the location is not good. Service it is so so. I could not find 2 of the 5 stars the say they are. The bar close at 10pm, the beverage selection is poor. Honestly I would not recommend this hotel and certainly I am not planning to stay here again.

It is not close to subway stations or malls, so to get some decent food, I had to travel 15 minutes by taxi to Jingan area (Kerry mall). There are only 3 options for breakfast, each set cost 88RMB. I tried the continental and oriental breakfast. The food quality is really bad - the sausages are overcooked, the bacon are not crispy, the eggs are not seasoned. The so-called champagne salon only has 3 types of champagne, and the salon closes at 10pm. BTW, I was told by the bartender that they are going to close the champagne salon down very soon. The hotel staff service is terrible. When I arrived, there's no one at the reception to help me check-in. I had to wait for 5-10 minutes for someone to attend to me. When I was checking out, I wasn't given a receipt for my payment, and I had to ask for it myself. The staff didn't even offer to get me a taxi or open the door or help me with my luggage. And oh, the staff didn't even say 'thank you' or whatsoever when I checked out.

this place is hidden behind Xinghua hotel at the corner of Jiangsu Road & Huashan Road, not very easy to find. I was told that the building is already more than 100years old, while the hotel started about 5years ago. The interior decoration is simple but pleasant, very european. Service is something that has much room to improve: there was no person answering the phone around 21:00; the internet was lousy and nobody fixed it after several complaints.

This was a great hotel! Rooms were very spacious and clean and the bed was really comfortable! The hotel was an old mansion so it is beautiful! The scene in the hotel was a bit strange and a little like a ghost town. It has a really great looking bar that was always empty and a restaurant that was reservation and prefix menu only. I would stay there again because the rooms were so great but i would love to see this place get better with regards to bar and get a more normal restaurant or room service.

The 2 stars are awarded mainly for the quality of the bedroom. This is very spacious, the bed very comfortable excellent bathroom, double sinks, bath shower etc. a good sized living area, terrace on which one can view the small backstreets and very quiet. The décor is a well made reconstruction of colonial style 30’s interiors. This décor continues in most of the others rooms (lounge, reception etc). Our booking for 3 nights was arranged by a very reputable UK tour company (Audley) so we were looking forward to the stay. After settling into the room I thought to ask in the bar to see the menu for dinner, after 16 minutes a lady arrived with a piece of A4 paper and showed me the menus in Chinese, not speaking Chinese I asked what was the ‘set’ menu, then I realised she did not speak English so after 5 minutes of effort, I gave up and realised we would have to eat out, she walked away as confused as myself. It dawned on me that very little English was spoken and all the staff looked very young and inexperienced. We ate out that night and asked about the chance to use the advertised pool, but we're told this was shut and as for a spa nobody seemed to understand, so went to bed. In the morning at 8 went for breakfast to be told it was served in the room (we had not been told this on arrival) therefore ordered 2 breakfasts in the room. After 1 hour nothing had arrived so I complained, 15 minutes later it arrived – the coffee could have been made 1 hour earlier and the bacon, sausage equally cold so of course I complained and in 10 minutes 2 new cups arrived. As we left the hotel I asked to speak to the manager via our daily guide from Audley,unfortunately they didn't know when he would arrive. On return in the evening an ‘apology gift’ arrived to say sorry for the breakfast fiasco, ‘thank you’, at least some recognition. Next evening decided to have a drink in the bar, the drinks list has a number of cocktails, my wife asking for one, you guessed! the young barman had zero idea of how to make it, not a clue even with the assistance of a young girl this was 15 minutes finally my wife chose a Gin and tonic and I had the house wine, they charged 12-15% SERVICE CHARGE! There was ‘no’ service, they should have deducted it. This is a so called 5 star hotel with around £200 a night charges and is in Relais et Chateaux. My conclusion is that it is an incredibly badly managed hotel, no chance to speak to manager, an untrained non English speaking staff who seem more interested in looking at their mobile phones and in the mirror. If you are wanting an international customer then good English is ESSENTIAL!! What a pity for such a charming hotel and business.

This is a nice and quiet place (not easy to find at first) in the hassle of shanghai. the staff and management are really at your service. There are several variety of food (chinese or western). The negative point: the spa needs a week reservation and this is not for us tourist who stay for a few days only.
