“Great find in great area in Shanghai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2008

Pudi Boutique Hotel is run by the Accor Hotel Group but it behaves like an exclusive boutique hotel. Stayed there for 3 nights and couldn't be more pleased.

The hotel is brand new and the room was great- I especially liked the huge bathroom. Breakfast on the top floor of this 8 floor hotel is not to be missed-- try the vanilla french toast.

Overall, a great experience in a great location in Shanghai. Close to the Dragonfly massage spa where we got foot massages each night!

  • Liked — the funky design of the rooms
  • Disliked — lobby and public areas a little too dark and sexy

I agree with all that the previous reviewer has to say about this small,comfortable and friendly hotel.
Staff speak good English (which is not always the case in Chinese hotels).
Rooms have all manner of gadgetry but are also comfortable, relaxing and user friendly. Great beds spacious bathrooms and free internet access. The business traveller will find the desk drawer full of office equipment and there is a printer/fax in all rooms.
Atmospheric public area lighting is not always the brightest but soothing and restful.
The top floor houses a restaurant, bar, meeting room, small gym and roof terrace.
Good breakfasts are served by friendly and attentive staff.
Situated within easy walking distance of Xintiandi where there are numerous restaurants and shops. Do find time to stroll around Fuxing Park particularly in the morning when hundreds of locals gather for exercises and social dancing.
Only opened in June '07, rates are currently well below the published tariff (see [-]). This hotel is run by Accor Hotels but is not really a Sofitel despite appearing as such on the web site.

Pudi Boutique hotel is a great choice in Shanghai! The website does it no justice, as this really is a gem of a hotel!
It is a smaller boutique/design hotel, with around 50 rooms. The staff were very friendly, and very helpful in every possible way. The service is truly top notch.
Pudi is located just next to Fuxing Park, in the French Concession. It's convenient location made walking out for dinner, drinks, and shopping very easy.
The rooms are incredible in terms of decor. It was a successful marriage of modern, chic style and ammenities, with a predominately chinese feel. The entrance to each room has a large fish tank built into the wall, as well as an enormous tank in the lobby. Inside the rooms, an entire wall is windows, with a view of either the park or the street, with the blinds controlled by remote. The King bed is very comfortable, and we especially enjoyed the 'pillow menu,' where upon arriving you get to order which pillows you would like for your stay. The bathroom is stunning- a wet room for the shower, and the biggest stand along bath tub we have possibly ever seen.
Rooms are divided in half, so to speak, with a tv in the center that is on a stand that swivels around. On one side is the bedroom part, and on the other a large desk with phone, fax, printer..., some chairs to relax in, and the other side is the bed.
The top floor of Pudi is the restaurant, gym, bar, lounge, and outdoor terrace... again, all beautifully designed, very elegant, and with stellar service.
The water in Shanghai is undrinkable, and the hotel is excellent at giving plenty of bottled water to guests. Everytime we returned to our room, there would be at least six new bottles of water.
If travelling to Shanghai on either business if pleasure, Pudi is a great choice!

  • Liked — service, style, location
  • Disliked — complicated lighting in room- lots of switches everywhere!
