Very refined and elegant hotel in the heart of Shanghai. The rooms are spacious and offer spectacular views of the Shanghai skyline. Loved the bathtub situated next to the window allowing one to feel on top of the world ! The service is efficient and the food good. There is a large and varied choice for breakfast at the buffet....

We tried many hotels in Shanghai. That one was the best ever for a zen experience. Rooms are bright, warm and huge at the same time. We felt completely relaxed after one night there. We did love the bathtub along the windows. We will go back for sure

This is a very remarkable hotel. I've been to different hotels in Shanghai and I can say that this one is the best so far! We took the club level room and it's just worth it. You get a butler service, late check out (upto 11pm) which is a good thing if you have a late flight, you can also...

It was an incredible experience. I wanted to take two days off to relax and this was the perfect choice. Paying for The Club experience gave me access to their top notch gym fitness facility, swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. The room was with an amazing view of the city and facing Jing'An Temple.

Now this is my type of hotel, a beautiful ultra modern chic hotel without the over the top grand entrance, luxury chandeliers and marble floors.

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 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
