Not sure what else I can add to other posts - this is how it should be done and probably our best stay in a luxury hotel over last 15 years. What sets the hotel apart is the service - you get made to feel special. Every single member of staff provided great service but special thanks to Lyon in the Long bar and also to the manager, Jan who took time to chat with us a couple of times to make sure we were enjoying our stay. The list could go - thank you to everyone involved in making this a memorable visit and cannot recommend highly enough. We had a Club room which was great - the choice of snacks and drinks in the bar is brilliant. Our friends live in Shanghai and therefore know other top hotels - they thought the Puli was a class apart and that Jan was charming.
For us the hotel was in a great central location, you can easily walk to the French Concession area and the hotel is a couple mins from the Metro which we found great way of getting around quickly especially as taxis get very busy particularly early evening. You probably could walk to the Bund but would be a a good 40 minute walk so recommend either a taxi or the metro which has stop 5 mins walk away. Also recommend M on the Bund for dinner and drinks at the Glamour bar.
Overall a great 6 nights in Shanghai made truly memorable by choosing The Puli which we only discovered due to tripadvisor.
