Hotel within walking distance of Shanghai's stylish Xin Tian Di. Several restraurants and shopping within walking distance, very safe area. Dragon Spa down the street, very reasonable and a welcome respite from the rigors of travel.

Room Tip: Construction going on in buiding so mornings, daytime were pretty noisy on my floor but the room was...

After going back and forth about staying in The French Concession vs. staying near The Bund, we choose the Pudi in order to attempt to experience less touristy Shanghai. The hotel is sort of in a strange but safe location, but in order to get to restaurants or nightlife, it was necessary to take a cab. The first night we arrived the cab driver charged us way more than he should have (make sure the cab pulls into the valet when getting dropped off) and Peter, one of the efficient staff members went above and beyond to investigate the situation and did his best to rectify it. If you are visiting on business, it was nice to have a printer and fully-equipped in the room. The rooms are spacious although a bit dark. We never went to the bar or restaurant, but checked out the roof which had nice views. Note that some of the front desk were more helpful/friendly than others and the lobby is quite unimpressive and not a good representation of the room quality. Seemed as though the noisy club many people talk about was under construction and closed during our visit.

Room Tip: We were on a high floor which was very quiet so I'd recommend it. It also seemed brighter.

I had the opportunity to stay in during my business travel and many of my experienced business travellers recommended me to experience this and i did...I loved it. absolutely unique experience, not commercial, very calming, as soon as you walk in the hotel and the room, your tiredness disappear. rooms are unbelievable, expensive of cause however you have experience this if you are a business traveller. everthing you see and touch in this hotel is unique. restaurant is small however again this is not commercial hotel, you feel like somewhere you fimiliar and instantly you love thisd place. you can see topend Shanghai shopping streets from the hotel windows. Hotel rooms consists of your own bar, office table, bathrooms are massive and fittings are very unique. Business travelers try this....get this experience, believe me !!!!

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in the Pudi Boutique. The hotel is very charming. It is in a great location--close to the subway and shopping. We also loved the free happy hour, internet and the very friendly staff.

Will definitely happily return!

This is a really cool sexy hotel.
The hotel has beautiful designer features- there is a fishtank between every room door, the bathroom is luxurious, the bedroom is spacious. I loved this hotel- I could have spent all day in my room it was just beautiful.
The staff are very helpful.
Rooms are very clean.
Location is good.
You will not be disappointed if you stay here.
Only drawback is there is not restaurant- so you need to go out for all meals- but really it is so cool & beautiful that you really don't mind this.

Excellent hotel, arrived at 9am and able to check in at 10 after a welcome drink. Lots of thoughtful extras eg sockets for all types of plugs for chargers, printer in room and free Wifi. Very large bathroom and lovely clean room. We were on 7th floor and had no noise, it was very quiet, couldn't hear anything outside, in neighbouring rooms or out in the corridor. Very convenient location next to lovely park. Highly recommended.

Ultimately, this hotel represents a promising concept poorly executed. This is definitely not a good business hotel and would probably challenge some leisure travelers.

A couple of positives:

The location, on the edge of Fuxing Park, is quite nice. It is convenient to a number of business, cultural and leisure destinations in Shanghai.

The rooms are large and the style is unique. It actually looks like someone poured a fair amount of money into this place, but didn't have enough to finish it properly.

Now the negatives:
The noise from the night club in the same building was horrendous, and I am a very heavy sleeper. It didn't wind down until after 2am. I would steer clear of this place for this reason alone.

Breakfast was a joke. Very limited selection and poor quality. Enough said.

Lousy service. Check in staff was out of it when we arrived and things took much longer than necessary. No bar for a night cap. There was a small gym at the top level and a hot tub that was empty and appeared to be in disrepair.

Basically the noise issue alone merits a bad review. While the room was generously sized and interesting, the hotel did not offer enough in terms of services or amenities to even begin to redeem it.

Dear
Thank you very much for posting your comments on the Trip advisor Website.
Please accept my sincerest apologies for your unpleasent experience during your stay with us. As you have mentioned in your review that you had stayed with us on March. I am sorry that on that time we failed to cordinate with the nightclub which caused a lot of noisy, now it was completely closed and I am sure this will be no longer a problem for us.

Naturally we are keen to redeem our reputation and with this in mind may I kindly request that you contact me personally on fom@boutiquehotel.cc so that I can investigate all the issues addressed by you.
