Very pleasantly surprised to find a hotel this good. Having stayed at the Sheraton Hotel for a number of years, I tried the Puli on the recommendation of a colleague and it is superb. Spacious rooms, friendly and helpful staff, great in-room amenities and nice touches such as the Nespresso machine, standalone shower, fresh fruit, Bose sound machine and so... More

We picked this hotel based on the positive reviews from different sources but in the end I was left slightly disappointed. The room is certainly spacious and well laid out but at a closer look the furnishings are showing their age; if I am not mistaken the hotel is about 5 years old. The blinds, which are controlled electronically, are... More

The only part of this hotel that wasn't relaxing was that it was in China... with a lot of people roaming around the lobby and common areas. Once you're in your room though, it's like a little haven... at first glance, hard to figure out where the closets and mini fridge are because they are designed in such a way... More

This hotel has one of the most beautiful pools I have ever seen. The service was excellent and the gym is well equipped. The only down side was the mediocre dinner in the restaurant and the lack of flexibility to use an item from the fixed menu as an à la carte order. The waitress explained that she had been... More

Nice room and bathroom, like all the materials they use in the each part of the house. My suite has got even an antique Chinese furniture. My room is located next to a high way middle in the city, but U can't hear any noise. Like the curtain shutters they use in the room. If U like those luxury spa... More

Excellent service. Design of the hotel, rooms and pool area is perfect - minimal yet luxurious. Restaurant and room service are top quality. Concierge is helpful and efficient. Location is on the edge of pretty Jing'an Park very convenient for subway to anywhere and 20 mins drive from Hongqiao airport. I would definitely stay here again. I had a room... More

Visited Shanghai once in a while and Puli is definitely among the best luxury hotels I have stayed in Shanghai(like Mandarin Oriental, Hyatt on the Bund, Westin on the Bund etc. and so far Puli is the best).
