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. The reception was warm and sweet, especially when they brought out the special cake they make for me.
Then in the evening, I enjoyed Champagne and cake in hotel’s bar Salon de Salon. The Manager Jackie is absolutely a highlight, who is funny, guest-oriented and makes excellent cocktails. The SPA was big on 2nd floor, but don’t know why there is no staff on the first floor, so it’s kind of confusing if you are first time here. However, the SPA room is actually bigger than I expected, as beautiful as the rooms. Therapists are professional with good service.
Of course, my favourite is the room, art-deco furniture, wooden floor, English wallpaper, old style bath tub, phonograph… you really would feel you have crossed to 1920. The equipments seems all fine except the electricity in bathroom got a bit problem.
Last but not least, you have to love the boutique hotel for their in-room breakfast, you don’t have to dress up, make up and sitting in the restaurant to enjoy breakfast. No matter in bed, in couch or in balcony, all about your feeling for the start of the day.
I believe this is the place everyone would love to come back. And the one of the few peaceful and relaxing places you can find in Shanghai.
