Beautifully designed hotel. Short on amenities but relatively inexpensive for this level hotel. Just do not order anything above the room or the bill will rapidly rise. Expensive so so breakfast that does not come with the room. The decor is exquisite. Possibly the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in. Metro next door.

This is the best hotel in Shanghai, very luxury, modern interior deco with an oriental twist. Amazing right from the lobby to the suites. Very good and personal service and quiet enough in the room. The advanced lighting system in the room and beautiful room layout is outstanding. The hotel you must visit in Shanghai if budget is not a... More

LOVED this hotel. We stayed in a grand room which suited a family of 4 well. Our 2 young children topped and tailed in the day bed. This place is heaven, particularly when you arrive late in the evening and after busy day out and about. Just zen. Customer service is perfect. My husband lost his mobile in a taxi... More

I have stayed in a lot of 5 star hotels before, but this is quite amazing. The location is fantastic, shopping and subway just beside the hotel. The building looks discreet yet modern, and the design of the hotel is my favourite. This is the perfect example of modern design with a twist of environmental consciousness and luxury. Loved the...

I had the most relaxing stay at the Puli. The rooms are luxurious and the twice daily housekeeping is fantastic. The Phenix is fantastic for breakfast and the Long Bar is a personal favourite for drinks and snacks. Missing the gym, pool and my bed there already! Can't wait to go back.

Great hotel, situated in the heart of Shanghai. Amazing decor and great facilities. Unfortunately the service is a little under par for a hotel of this calibre.

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.
