The rooms are beautiful, uber stylish, and actually look like the ones shown on website.The in room complimentary drinks, including a Nespresso machine, were a well appreciated touch. The staff were discretely helpful. The food was amazing, but the restaurant prices do reflect this. This hotel is nothing like the over big, overdone hotels that are often found in China. I found it an oasis of calm after a hectic day. If your budget allows, I cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the park. You'll see the locals practicing tai chi in the morning.

I was lucky enough to receive an upgrade to a suite and was blown away by it. The reception was already really, a mix of modern chinese and antiques, but really well done and with a luxury feel. My suite definately didnt disapoint ...it was huge, a small kitchen area, a large lounge with all the gadgets ( in fact i couldnt figure out the ipod doc)., very comfortble and big bed, a deep bathtub, separate walk in shower. Its a lovely place, thhe pool is amazing and it has a really calm ambience in what is a frenetic city - the perfect mix. I will definately go again...and i hope i get another upgrade!

Dear Missie22,

For such well travelled guests I am so EXTRA happy to receive yor great review.

Please let me know personally next time your travels bring you to Shanghai. I believe we have met, but with so many English speakers in the hotel I may be wrong. In any case, as much as you are based in Sunderland and I am a Chelsea man, we will look after you!

Best wishes for many more happy travels.

Many thanks and best regards,

Martijn van der Valk

We stayed only for one night at this faboulous hotel and did not want to leave. From the check in which was quick and perfectly friendly to the concierge wiith good advice and the beautiful architecture and design we really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast is served in a wonderful room partly served partly from buffet. The room had a wonderful view and nice decoration. The only negative was the plastic protection for the matress und the sheets. So it is really hot and does not give you a luxurious feeling. But apart from this everything was just great. We appreciated especially the greeting by the GM and the peaceful atmosphere in the hotel. Friends who stayed lomger enjoyed also very much the nice spa and the excellent treatments. We certainly will go back the more so as we loved Shanghai also very much.

Dear al208,

Wonderful to see your review and great to meet you.

I have well note your comments on your sleeping experience. We have opted for full mattress protectors on each bed in each room.

They are like a very thin duvet and they give quite a luxurious and soft base on our kingcoil mattresses - a world standard we are really happy with.

Next time you are with us, we will remove the topper so to make sure you are not inconvenienced.

Thank you for letting us know.

Best regards,
Martijn van der Valk

Dear winCalifornia,

Thank you for posting a review on TA.

I noticed you were not putting full marks on value.

Please note that our website always has the best available rates and even seasonal promotions available to cater for everyone.

All rooms have an AV console next to or under the desk. Sorry if we failed to point it out properly. The plugs are designed to take any "nationality" plug without adapters!

I very look much forward to welcoming you back should your travels bring you back to Shanghai.

Best regards,

Dear MapleNagoya,

Thank you for your comments. Good to know you have enjoyed your stay. Thank you for recognizing thehard work and dedication of our teams; they will be thrilled to know!

We chose to have real milk in the minibar, because little cups or powdered versions just do not work out the same, I fully agree with you.

Happy travels and until next time at The Puli Hotel and Spa.

Best regards,

Went here for a birthday celebration.
Got into a studio suite room - great.
Fabulous bathroom amenities and furnishing.
Style and comfort!
Great bed.
Restaurant and breakfast ok but $$$$.

Really classy rooms - complimentary mini bar and wifi a real nice touch.

Away from the bund. Close to Jing An Temple.

I really liked it!

Dear Petitebrioche,

Thank you for letting all of us know about your experiences at the Puli Hotel and Spa.

What a great online name you have! We use home baked brioche with our duck liver parfait at JingAn!

Hope you agree that our prices are more or less in line with the relevant others... Dane's creations change every couple of months, so worth keeping an eye on: I am always very excited whenever he comes up with a new dish... It's like a new movie being released of your favourite actor or actress.

Please let me know personally if I can assist with your next 'staycation' or if you have guests from out of town coming over.

Happy to help. Alternatively you could have a look at the website of course.

Many thanks and best regards,

Martijn van der Valk

I just love Puli. The bamboos, spa, the infinity pool, the marvellous lobby, the food ... I want the same entre and a library like theirs in my own house ... The connected lobby bar and reception is such a great idea... "Simple and authentic touches of historic and cultural reference sit side by side with new benchmarks in innovation,leading dege technology and design. It's like being away from it all and right in the heart of it all at once." I can't wait to go back and spend another getaway weekend in this beautiful breathtaking urban resort. Yes, I actually live in Shanghai. But I just love Puli ......

Dear Ms 'Eva Z',

Thank you so much for your review on TA. We just launched our Winter Retreat Program as through your comments and others, we learned that little "staycations" for people living here in Shanghai, are very well received! It's not easy to beat a bit of R&R and a lot of Puli Spa...

Let me know personally next time you would like a mini break, or simply have a look at the website for the latest Shanghai Friends Special Programs!

Have a great winter.

Best regards,

Martijn van der Valk
