We stayed at The Puli earlier this month at the recommendation of a colleague who visits Shanghai very often and stayed in a number of great hotels in the city. I am now convinced that my colleague has great taste!
The hotel is well located as it is surounded by shopping areas but also next to the small Jing An Park which is a delight to walk into in the morning. The decoration is elegant, modern and luxurious. The rooms are comfortable and of good size. The espresso machine in the room is a nice touch as I like good coffee.
The only area where I would say there is a need for improvement is breakfast where the buffet seems to be full of pastries, bread, fruit and yogurt but nothing much else that would wet our appetites. We had ala carte breakfast in the end but english breakfast needs to improve in my humble opinion.
Apart from the breakfast issue which is personal I only have positive things to say about the hotel. The decoration, atmosphere and service are great.
I will definitely go back to The Puli to stay weither work or leisure. I owe my colleague a favour now, he was right about how great The Puli is.
