Beautiful and very well located hotel! I especially liked the lobby... great multi purpose space with the comfortables sofas and beautifully designed long bar / reception desk where you could order a snack or a drink at any time of the day. There is also a very good restaurant inside of the hotel. But there was one thing which made...

This hotel was fantastic. Firstly the design of the hotel is so considered, everything has been done to a very high standard and has an urban luxe feel. The whole hotel feels like a retreat or cocoon in the crazy city of Shanghai - I hardly wanted to open the blinds as I wanted to enjoy only the hotel. Service...

If you want to find an oasis in the busy Shanghai city, if you want to have some relaxing time with the family, and have your kids treat well, this is the choice. It has been a great experience from equipment until service, and customer experience. Absolutely my next choice when we will be in Shanghai

The hotel operates on a busy shopping site as an oasis. The first impression was, however, an enormous flop!!! - the service employees were in general not able to help in the situation with some smart problem solutions and the higher management had to solve out the problems instead, socially and creatively. A big thanks also to the Puli leadership...

The Puli is definitely the legendary hotel as an independent brand in China (We have been told a lot about it by our art&design community friends) The design approach for the Puli pays respect to Shanghai being one of the most prominent culture and economic City in China, it's echoing the eastern Asia elements in a very delicate and thoughtful...

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood 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.

The PuLi, with 26 floors, 193 rooms and 36 suites will offer 24-hour in-room dining as well as 24-hour concierge, laundry and valet services. The hotel's signature 120-seat restaurant located on level 2, also boasts impressive views across the park. A 32-metre Long Bar will offer one of Shanghai's "longest" wine and champagne selections by the glass. The bar and lounge will create a chameleon-like atmosphere as the space transforms in character and mood through the day.
