Excellent Urban Resort
Reviewed 3 days ago

We stayed her over a long weekend. Booked the weekend special and it was great. A centrally located urban resort - the bamboo plants at the entrance and the entire Zen feel of the lobby. The Hotel is now about 9 years old, but I still enjoyed the ambience of the place and the room. Heavenly beds and room. The free beverage is a plus.
The breakfast is excellent with freshly squeezed fruit juice and ala carte cooked items.
The service is excellent though I feel the check in can be more comprehensive for first time guest to tell them about the facilities.
I had a missing garment and the housekeeping took the effort to find it for me. Will definitely stay here again.

Worth the stay.

My third stay at the Puli - it just keeps getting better
Reviewed 4 days ago

If you come to Shanghai, Jing'an is the best area to stay in; if you stay in Jing'an then the Puli is the place to be. I have stayed in a few places in Shanghai, and many of them quite elegant but also over-the-top, loud, too bright or colorful. The Puli is by contrast, soothing, serene and another level of romantic elegance that hits you softly almost if from the pages of an old travel book. Before you realize, you are entranced by the dark woods, clay tiles, the bronze finishes and the stone statuettes. I told my friends that I have a butler, and while that sounds amusing and antiquarian to say that I have to say that I miss my butler. It was a type of service that is not found in today's hustle bustle world. This respite from the ultra-modern world and its worries is what I enjoyed most. I will come back to Shanghai if only to stay in this wonderful place.

I went to shanghai for my 12 days birthday trip. I have stayed at the boutique hotel The Puli for 4 nights. i have also stay at Hotel INDIGO on the bund and Swire hotel The Middle House. The 3 boutique hotels i have stayed can considered Top 5 hotel in Shanghai. I personally like The Puli the most and i grade Puli is the Top 3 hotel in Shanghai. The design is outstanding. Every single detail of design, architecture, lighting, ambience, flow, comfort, amenities is almost perfect. Well done to the architect firm Layan and the urban resort mananagement and the taiwan hotel owner. They have create an outstanding hotel in Shanghai for the past 9 years. 5 years ago, i was chilling at The Puli long bar and stay there this time for my birthday trip. When u reach The Puli, you will seen a chinese design grey brick wall and a round bamboo plantation the middle of the hotel entrance. Its calms and freshen the guest mind when walking in at the to the hotel lobby. There is small outdoor water feature at the passageway that make a Tranquil environment. When you have the lobby, you will see a modern chinese resort design with ancient chinese elements that make you feel luxury and stability. Its motivate you to go up to the room and explore the 1 star michellin restaurant and the swimming pool, spa and gym. The design of the room is outstanding, well layout and flow, and both city & garden view is impressive. The free mini bar and the amenities make the guest feel more valuable when staying in a high end hotel. The food at the 1 star Michellin star restaurant Phenix is delicous and spread is quite alot. The design of the restaurant is superb design with a nice garden view and tranquil ambience when having your food. The swimming pool is outstanding design with perfect lighting and accessories and beautiful garden view. The Jarcuzzi and the oval shower area are perfect. Lastly, The Anantara spa is well design and the service of the staffs are polite and attentive. The location is at Jing An station and perfect for gals who like to shop for luxury goods at Nanjing West road. Overall staying in gorgeous high end boutique hotel The Puli make you feel classy and cool and you will feel you get more than you pay for. A slight feedback the staffs at the lobby can smile a bit more and more detailing when guest is checking in and concierge enquiries. I will definitely most willingly to come back to The Puli and will have a longer time with your again!
