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
