This is an outstanding property. The kind of property that you can confidently and unreservedly recommend to anyone who'll listen. Stunning lobby, great bar, divine breakfast, excellent rooms (spacious and high ceilings), sensational service and a fabulous pool. This was my second stay for business and in spite of my very high expectations (after my prior stay) the second visit...

I loved this hotel from the moment I stepped out of the taxi. In a city that is so busy it is a tranquil haven to return to at the end of each busy day. The staff was amazing and always there, although not in an annoying way. The room we had was unique and different from any other we...

The Puli is truly salvation for the soul in a busy city, an oasis of calm bringing on a Zen like state for all those who are lucky enough to stay.

This hotel is quite simply the best I've ever stayed in. Shanghai is a wonderful city, one of the best in the world but it has serious competition for your attention if you stay here.

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.

With handcrafted luxury at the core of its service philosophy, The PuLi guest experience marks a departure from the expected generic style of luxury usually associated with conventional collections of foremost hotels.

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.
