One of the best rooms I've ever been to. Big and spacious, lovely view. Comfortable bed. Wooden floors and separate shower and jacuzzi. Plenty of cupboards. Lovely breakfast. Great pool. Fancy Bar. Good location.

Somehow, the lobby of a hotel is the heart of the enterprise, expressing the character of the hotel better than any other single thing. The lobby of the Puli Hotel in Shanghai just has to be one of the most engaging and perfect hotel lobbies in the world. Everything about it, starting with the beautifully polished floors to the heavenly...

I cannot say enough about this wonderful hotel. It's zen-like feel welcomes you from the busy streets of Shanghai. It is so relaxing and the service is wonderful. The location has many advantages including walking distance to shops/restaurants and the French Concession. I sadly did not eat here or use the spa so I can't comment on these factors- but...

I stay at the PuLi each month when in Shanghai on business. The rooms are large, very comfortable, and the staff very attentive. It feels like a home from home, well located in Jing'An close to the French concession. Very relaxed atmosphere.

I recently stayed two nights at the PuLi - my second stay in the past year.

We love the Puli, so very sad they stooped to level of cost cutting that make their guest very uncomfortable. They limit significantly the use of the in-room air conditioning, which make it very very warm room, very unpleasant, hard to sleep in such hot room. They set the air con at 20c no less, this means room is really...

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.
