The PuLi was recommended to us by Han Feng.. Didn't know what to expect. The website was beautiful but websites can often distort the real thing. Not at the Puli. Our room was grand in every way. Not the biggest room they offer but one that considers the client. Two sinks, an entry closet as well Asa huge armoire. The... More

After 3 nights in Shanghai in a 3 star hotel, then going to Suzhou for 2 days, my mother and I stayed at the Puli for our last night back in Shanghai - a stunning way to say bye to China. Our room and the whole hotel were beautifully designed. We stayed in a really great 5 star hotel in... More

Wow, wow, wow. What an absolutely amazing experience. We booked to stay 3 nights and ended up staying 5. Situated in the middle of busy Shanghai, you feel like you are in a spa, as far away from anyone and anything. Location is on top of the underground train. You are able to go anywhere, anytime very easily. The staff... More

Stayed for 3 nights and blown away be service and hotel amenities - the gym was well equipped and the spa and pool top class and normally empty. The location on the green metro line 2 very convenient for airport and other attractions - one of the hotels I've ever stayed in

Great hotel! I stayed for 3 nights the hotel food is delicious slightly over priced but I think that's to be expected at such a fancy place. I had a flight at 8pm and check out was at 11 am the staff was nice enough to hold my bags without any extra cost. For someone who has little grasp on... More

I would rate this a 4.5 star property....definitely one of the best in Shanghai, especially for those who like design-driven properties. Great location, service and amenities. I stayed @ the end of February, right @ the tail end of Chinese New Year, and since it was the slow season, I took advantage of the hotel's "Stay 2 nights, get 1... More

A coworker recommended this hotel for my first visit to Shanghai. It's incredibly convenient - right above the subway, just across the highway from the French Concession, near Jing'an Temple and lots of great department store shopping. The entry and lobby really set the tone with a chic, Asian yet sexy feel. The room - it's like you took a... More
