Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 February 2013

I had heard this hotel for long time, finally stayed here at Chinese New Year. Fantastic design and good location just next to Jing’An park, big shopping mall, metro station. Drink in Long bar – see sunset, amazing feeling.
The staff are warm, professional and courteous. The room have big wardrobes very suitable for woman. Free internet and mini bar, the Spa and swimming pool is amazing.
Will recommend to friends and come back again. If you are looking a place to stay in Shanghai, stay in PuLi.

Room Tip: Book room with view over park!!

Stayed here at the recommendation of a business colleague. The service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble. Even when my mobile phone charger died, the staff (butler Nick) hurried off and came back with a selection for me to try until I found one that worked. I had booked a club room, which included a whole range of extras, like an evening cocktail and canapés delivered to my room, complimentary afternoon tea, breakfast, daily laundry and pressing allowance, complimentary Internet access. The only issue is that their club concept is a little lonely, there is no club lounge to socialize. A communal club lounge on the top floor would be a nice touch. The staff are pleasant, helpful and polite, all speak English. They make a very nice dry vodka martini at the long bar. The gymnasium facility was a little small, lots of modern equipment but crammed into one room. Walking distance from the up market shopping area on Nanjing Road West.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for posting your comments following your stay at The PuLi Hotel and Spa.
We very much appreciated you highlighting the effectiveness of our Butler Nick - he will be very happy to read that his efforts were recognized!

As for the Club Room amenities - yes, indeed they represent tremendous value for money and are much appreciated by our Club guests.

I read with interest your feedback of not having a Club Lounge per say as you wish to have more of a socializing environment.
I would like to point out that our Lobby is one of the most social spots in town where our guests mingle and enjoy the open space overlooking our water features and the tranquillity of JingAn Park.
We look forward to your return and thank you again for your patronage.

Sincerely,

Jan B. Tibaldi
General Manager

Excellent service! Staff is very attentive, helpful and smily. Comtemporain design in the spacious room. The bed is very confortable. Large bathroom with bath and shower. Space enough for clothes (2 wardrobes) in the entrance and in the barthroom.
Tasty breakfast in the dinning room, with a large choice.
One of these hotel where you feel at home when you are far away from yours. No doubt I will book in The Puli during my next stay in Shanghai.

Room Tip: Ask if possible a view on the park... Shanghai at night is magic!

It has been the second time in Puli, came back in a different season and the experience has been the same pleasant. Chic oriental design hotel, boutique style hidden in the most happening area for both shopping and dining destination in french concession shanghai.
room comfortable, well designed and just the right size for two. Pool temperature pleasant and although it was during chinese new year i stayed, hotel is still well staffed and there missed nothing.
just a pity in cold shanghai winter there was no possibility to use the outdoor bar area which was a bless in summer.

Great hotel. Very relaxing and calm atmosphere given busyness of Shanghai. I stayed in a Club room which was well appointed including nespresso machine. Spa and gym area of a high standard. Staff helpful. Long Bar didn't really work for me, not enough atmosphere. Overall though, highly recommend this hotel and will make this my regular hotel in Shanghai.

Traveling to China for business I decided to go earlier than my colleagues in order to get over the jet lag before our meetings. Thankfully I chose the Puli as my refuge traveling alone in Shanghai!! After an exhausting 15 hour plane ( and I was in Business Class!!) I was met by the Hotel driver and whisked away thru the crowded arrivals area and taxi lines. ( best money i ever spent was getting a driver to the hotel!) I was met by the hotel staff and brought directly to my beautiful room without having to "check-in" downstairs . nice touch when you are so tired. The room is so Zen like and very comfortable. The lighting is perfect and the bed so comfortable! Loved the free min-bar and snacks, Nespresso machine and tea pot. The bath is heaven! Not to be picky but I do have to say there is an artificial perfume like smell in the room and throughout the hotel ( but this was the same at Waldorf Astoria - second hotel ( separate review) - and I think just the way it is in China ( although Not at Amanfayun ( another separate review). I'm sensitive to smells . Room service was exceptional ! Fitness Center - top notch , overlooking the park where you can see the Chinese practicing their Tai Chi Right below you as you run on the treadmill. The neighborhood was great with lots of shopping and easy access to restaurants - awesome sushi bar right on the parkway. The spa was wonderful , had a very good massage and foot treatment , not as expensive as I expected, also you can use the facilities ,sauna, steam room and jacuzzi which are all very good( except have that same artificial perfume smell:( )
The long bar is Wonderful!! Love the candles and ambiance ! Business center is very good- had trouble downloading files through my Gmail but not the fault of the hotel- Google is heavily censored by the Chinese so expect some frustration if you operate with Google in China. The hotel staff was great though and had their whole I.T. Team trying to help me.
If you travel to China for business or pleasure - The Puli is an exceptional choice!!!

Fantastic Hotel, would recommend to anyone. The pool was amazing. Rooms were spacious for a couple but a little small for a family. Reception Staff were very helpful and the location was great. Surrounded by great restaurants and upmarket shopping.
