I stayed at the Puli for a week in September during a business trip. The location is great and the service superb. The whole vibe was luxe modern with some traditional touches. The bar had great cocktails and atmosphere. The room was spacious and had all the amenities that I needed. I was, however, a bit confused as to why... More

I have been attracted by TA high rank and good reviews as well as its location. However, althoughly my flight arrive Shanghai was late night but as a 5 star hotel there was no body at front door to greet only two janitors are mopping the floor with machine. The Front desk and lobby was very dim and staff not... More

I really liked this hotel and would come back here again! We were upgraded to a club room on the 22nd floor and it was very big, comfortable bed and great bathroom. The room was well laid out and great decor, I enjoyed my short time here, the mini bar which was free was okay, enough soft drinks but a... More

This hotel is a cut above the rest, especially on the mainland. It is a 5star, but i would have given it 6. I have stayed everywhere in China, and I havent seen such attention to detail in any Chinese hotel on the mainland (excluding HK ofcourse). The room is very comfortable. Its bathroom is stacked and is equally as... More

My boyfriend and I had a terrific time at the Puli Hotel. The hotel is centrally located- very easy to reach tourist attractions. We loved the breakfast and totally enjoyed the spa, which was, btw expensive.

The room was neat, with very interesting design of the lights. Shower and bath were both good. Really good service from the hotel staff, and excellent, convenient location. The highlight would be the swimming pool, which was so attractive. SPA looks great too but we haven't tried, however it's said to be the attracting point of the hotel.

This is really one of the most fantastic hotels we ever stayed in. Everything was superb: the location in the very center of Shanghai, next to the most convenient subway line, the taste of the building and its interior, the quality of the staff (e.g. their knowledge of English). Obviously, all this has its price.

Contemporary decoration with bamboos, water and black stones. Zen-Asian meets techno-contemporary sort of feel. Chic, sleek, spacious and green in the middle of the city. Communication in English is at times not optimal and service needs a bit of polish, but it may be the country, not the hotel. Free mini bar is so well stocked, it's hard to understand... More

Located in the heart of Shanghai, spacious room 36 square meters or so, open-planned bedroom and bathroom, both with expansive city view. Stylish & comfy setting, great service and the housekeeping is particularly & impressively effective. Tired of staying with the international-premium banners? Try this "urban oasis"!
