I spent a couple of nights at the Puli Hotel. I have been many times before on trips to Shanghai. I love this hotel - great location, rooms, restaurant, pool and a superb lobby. It is serene, using oriental style with lots of wood, great lighting, somewhat minimalist and incredibly stylish. The staff are extremely helpful and universally charming. One... More

This hotel has everything. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and designed so that you feel relaxed. There are little touches which help you enjoy your stay.

Great unique, boutique feel but with the quality and oversight of a high end chain. Lobby is gorgeous and smells nice. Service is not typical Chinese, i.e. as good as I would expect anywhere in the world at a high end hotel. Great, serene, relaxed, but not cheap, escape after spending each day exploring the exciting, dirty city of Shanghai.... More

I've stayed at The Puli countless times, and it is my absolute favorite hotel in the world. Unlike the Chinese population, I like to stay in the uneven number rooms (they have park view), but every room is perfect - from the cleanliness, to the complimentary mini bar and snacks, the shampoos, the ambience, the silence and so on.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood 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.
