Le Sun Chine
Ranked #775 of 5,112 Hotels in Shanghai
Reviewed June 3, 2012

From May 9th - 12th 2012 I was a guest in this small French hotel that has only about 20 rooms. Their business seems to be linked to a very nice restaurant. I would have never known about this hotel had it not been for Professor Huang of the Shanghai Finance University that was hosting a symposium for the 30th Anniversary of the China panda bear coinage. I only had to pay for one night of the 3 total nights in the hotel...but would have paid for all the nights if I had too. The room (suite) was incredible with hardwood floors, superb furnishings, great bed....and quiet!!! If you are looking for a wild time...this is not the place...if you are getting beat up with business issues...this "is" the place to wind down. The breakfast is served in the rooms as part of the fee and it's great....not like any other hotel room service. The only draw back is that it is not easy for taxis to find. I strongly suggest you print out the address from the website and when you get in the taxi, have the taxi call the hotel for where exactly this place is! Once you walk in the door....you will feel at home! It's nice there was a Western management team in place as well. I absolutely "will" come back to Le Sun Chine !!! Danny Spungen

Le Sun Chine is the best hotel among the 5-star hotels I have stayed in Shanghai. It has a low profile, but the service, food, decoration, room are just perfect. That is a place everyone would want to stay and relax after a busy day.

I say 'extra special' because the staff and management really go the extra mile for you here. I was truly impressed with their dedication and friendliness. It's a new place, so there are still a few teething problems, but any little glitches were made up for by a helpful attitude. The room was enormous, a genuine 'suite', the decor very pretty and tasteful, and the amenities, such as room fridge, tea kettle, etc. very handy. The staff could do with a bit more traning in the housekeeping area - things are not clean all the way round sometimes. The location is quite central, and about a 10 minute walk to the metro. It's surprisingly quiet in such a big city, too. Lovely lounge, the feeling of luxury everywhere. Be careful if you are travelling on a budget as the special reduced room rates are great, but the prices at the bar (and no doubt for the spa etc.) will raise your eyebrows a few feet. That said, the champagne is lovely. I felt very welcome and I'd stay here again in a flash.

Maybe not easy to find at first, but this is also the reason why it is a nice secret and quiet place in the hassle of shanghai.
1930's style, beautiful rooms, amazing indoor pool and spa facilities, great shanghainese cuisine. Nice service... Yes it could be more personalized even, but by Chinese standards, it's very well done.
Its a new member of relais & chateaux: small (19 rooms), unique in shanghai and non pretentious.
Please keep that spirit!
