I always love returning to the Puli. Its understated elegance and high design quotient make every stay there memorable. So much of the hotel is beautifully designed - just checking in and hanging out in the first floor is wonderful.

Excellent downtown location, beautiful lobby, efficient staff (but English speakers can be hard to find). Nothing to criticize about the room, which was on a high floor: well appointed, spacious bathroom, even larger shower, coffee machine and plenty of amenities. Excellent in every respect.

Wow what a hotel, such amazing luxury. Shanghai has many Luxury hotels but the PuLi is one of the best I've seen. I used the Spa service here as a birthday treat and level of customer service is some of the best I've had. Not cheap but Still worth every penny because it was the best massage I've ever had!

Serene, beautiful, peaceful, quiet hotel with good service. Amazing rooms - stunning interiors, perfect lighting, good beds and 100% blackout. Breakfast is OK, but easy to get tempted in one of the surrounding restaurants.

We loved this hotel with a sophisticated feeling of Japanese architecture. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The swimming pool and spa are amazing. BUT when we asked the concierge to book the bullet train to go and visit Suzhou, he highly recommended to book a tour with a bus because he said we were too old to take the...

The hotel has a good location and the design of the room is quite impressive - the Grand Room gives you a view of the Park, which is worthwhile IMO. It is a bit pricey and the service is not that great; but overall a good experience.

With no expectation, I found it such a lovely hotel with contemporary design and some Chinese touch. The breakfast was also nice, but not a full buffet style where you can order some dish from the menu depending on the room/package. One thing I didn't like was the bed. Supporting was very bad and got back pain the next day....

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With handcrafted luxury at the core of its service philosophy, The PuLi guest experience marks a departure from the expected generic style of luxury usually associated with conventional collections of foremost hotels.

The PuLi, with 26 floors, 193 rooms and 36 suites will offer 24-hour in-room dining as well as 24-hour concierge, laundry and valet services. The hotel's signature 120-seat restaurant located on level 2, also boasts impressive views across the park. A 32-metre Long Bar will offer one of Shanghai's "longest" wine and champagne selections by the glass. The bar and lounge will create a chameleon-like atmosphere as the space transforms in character and mood through the day. A superbly equipped state of the art gymnasium, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi pool, 25-metre lap infinity pool as well as the first Anantara spa in Shanghai operated by the award-winning spa group, is available to all guests on level 3. ... more   less
