Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

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....

My wife and me we like cool contemporary boutique style hotels and the PuLi has it all! It is a 5 star hotel no doubt for that but in the same time it's cool, it has a beautiful style and architecture, it has a cool beach club style outside bar and lounge and it has many more cool beautiful stuff...

This hotel is amazing! Beautiful entry & lobby ( very non-hotel feel) The lobby reception is an extension of the longest bar with an amazing water feature running the entire length. Staff are amazing, very helpful & they all learn your name and refer to you by this, which is a nice touch. The rooms are huge! very well appointed,...

This is a great hotel, great spacious rooms, great facilities (the pool / steam / sauna is truly great), and the bar and dining areas also nice and relaxing to hang out in. Free mini bar is also a nice touch.

We spent 6 days in the Puli. The hotel is so peaceful, the view is amazing, the rooms very well furnished with high level of services. The spa is so relaxing - the swimming pool has a great view.All the staff were so nice to us. I definitely will recommend The Puli.

Still probably my top choice in Shanghai. Love the design of the hotel. The room amenities and the breakfast is great. Staff and service is inconsistent though. Some are quite helpful, and some unfortunately don't care as much. Check-in was quite nice, greeted by a lovely smiling young lady, however, check-out was not so nice. The gentlemen did not seem...

Like most travellers these days, I research various hotels on Tripadvisor before deciding on one. I was intrigued by the Puli, as I had not previously heard of this hotel, yet it had garnered such a large number of glowing reviews, that I was keen to try it. First of all, the Puli is not for those on a budget....

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
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 result is a distinctively unique, new spatial and guest experience, to heighten discovery and bring delight to the senses. 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
