Amazing hotel. Stayed over 19 days last July '14. Perfect oasis in the midddle of a giant city. Since the very first moment you enter the lobby, you fall in love with the style of the hotel. The sport facilities, the pool and spa are just perfect.

This hotel is certainly one of the best I've stayed in. The hotel itself is beautiful and very comfortable, but what makes it al special (and a definite reason to return) is the wonderful staff. Sure, not everyone speaks English (as some have complaint) but their smiles and effort to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible, makes... More

We just returned from spending a month in China. We stayed at the Puli August 4-7, August 12-17, and August 21-26. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It is centrally located near many very good restaurants and high end shopping. It's convenient to get to almost anywhere. The hotel is extremely well managed and the most helpful... More

Very beautiful hotel very similar to the Sukothai in Bangkok with water features and lovely Asian touches within a modern aesthetic. Some staff do struggle with written English, so my request for a brunch reservation for 3 adults and 1 baby seat resulted in an offer of a baby crib and a sofa bed with a recommended room upgrade for...

Checked into Puli for 3d2n stay. 1st impression after getting out of a cab is that the hotel doesn't have a grand lobby. Looks more like an entrance to a spa. Check in was a breeze. They have very nice rooms here. Good view out to the city. Bathtub by the window. Exactly what you see in their pictures. Location... More

I do not have anything but great things to say about this graceful, classy, peaceful oasis in the center of Shanghai. It really feels like an escape from the chaos of China. Impeccable service, beautiful rooms, great gym. Fantastic - look forward to the next visit.

My husband and I stayed here almost a year ago, but after visiting so many other "5 star" properties around Asia, this is by far one of my favorites!

i visite shanghai every month for one week and i always stay at this hotel: every single detail is taken with a lot of attention, the sensation is to be hosted in a non-urban/business hotel although many italian business people stay here.

Branded as an “urban oasis” in the heart of Shanghai, The PuLi manages to successfully achieve a feeling of serenity that is difficult to find amidst the bustle of China’s largest city. Similarly, the interior design is a departure from the collective style usually associated with conventional luxury hotels—while the hotel is undoubtedly Chinese, it could almost pass as a... More

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.
