"Amazing hotel, close to shopping..."
I stayed here while in Shanghai for an exhibition and booked a room through Amex travel so I could get the benefits. I was upgraded to a corner room which was larger than my apartment in Hong Kong. Hotel is within walking distance to a nice little shopping area, inexpensive restaurants, and a few pubs. The hotel restaurant had a good selection of food, I had their Shanghai Noodles which were slightly spicy and very delicious. Technically, I was here for business, but my wife flew over for a couple nights as I booked it through the weekend. I would stay here again if I return to Shanghai.
"Amazing stay!! Five stars!"
We recently stayed in this hotel and I was blown away by their attention to detail and service. The hotel is gorgeous it is designed very well with a very Zen modern design. When you walk in the high ceiling doors you know you are in a different place. The rooms are spacious and very well designed and very comfortable with nice views. Loved the bamboo Floors. The staff were truly amazing. People knew our names and refer to us by our names at the lobby and when we called for room service. The spa at this hotel was amazing I couldn't get enough of the amenities. Their gym is also good it has everything you need. The hotel has a nice bar at ththe Lobby which we tried a few times. The rooms were very clean and the cleaning staff always went above and beyond for instance I drink a lot of water throughout the night they always had a cup and a bottle of water additional by out night table which was great. Also the nights I wear a suit jacket to go out int the town when I came back I had a suit hanger in the bed waiting for which was truly amazing I was like how did they know I wore a jacket. I wish they had more of this hotel around the world. This service is better than a four seasons in my book. My wife didn't feel good our day of departure and I needed a late checkout , and I didn't even had to explain they just asked me at what time we wanted to checkout. I highly recommend this hotel next time in Shanghai I will stay here for sure.
"Excellent service and calming stay"
A great location centrally located within major malls. The service is excellent and when I was introduced to the General Manager and he noticed one of the days I was planning to visit an exhibition which requires a ticket, he immediately gave me his invitation. Even after staying here time and again, I am still very impressed by the cleanliness and the style of service.
"Hotel with an ambiance"
For the second time in a few month I stayed at The Puli in Shanghai. Shanghai is a great city with a many good hotels, so why do some hotels stay out different' The Puli has great interior architecture and the ambiance is very good. From you check in and they are welcoming you back by name, you do feel welcome. If you have a club room you will have a butler service, I found that the butler could answer most questions and help with everything I needed help with. The service at the long bar is excellent, they have a special menu for the club rooms, drinks and food. If you dont feel like going out its nice just picking from the club menu, the food is good. The bar & restaurant Phenix Eatery and Bar, serves excellent food and the price is reasonable considering one star in the Michelins guide, they have an international menu. I have not tried the Spa yet, but I have been told it is excellent, so maybe next time. What more to say' The location is very good for most things like shopping and restaurants. Also I like walking in the neighbourhood park in the morning watching the locals do their Tai Chi. Its a nice start of the day. I will be back soon. Be aware of the discounts the hotel offer for early booking.
"I am currently staying at the Puli , my stay so far"
As most Tripadvisor reviewers do prior to booking a hotel is they look at the negative reviews to get a so called "feeling fir a hotel" Here is my review so far three days into a seven day stay (I am weighing up the negatives) A reviewer said flimsy bedside table she spelt her red wine (It has a solid marble top so far from flimsy, perhaps she had too much red wine) The noise from the cars on the highway unbearable (Really' It's right outside my window and I can't here it) Service from the staff rude, obnoxious and arrogant ( I have only received excellent service, travellers have to understand different cultures have different mannerisms) The breakfast buffet lack of choice and no selection ( First of all if you are visiting another country why not try there cultures food as there is a wide selection) Let me give these negative reviewers a tip, buffets that offer a huge variety and choice normally Tge food is of low quality , the breakfast buffet here is fresh, high quality selection and boutique with an extra cooked menu offered as soon as you sit down To the name dropper who has stayed at every top hotel on the planet including the Shangri La and all they could do is rubbish the Puli ( My obvious thought is clearly you whinge at every hotel you stay at and if the Shangri La was so fantastic why do you not book at the one across the road' Only a plate and napkin on the table with a bit of fruit' (Open a dictionary and look up the word minimalistic To all future reviewers thinking of booking this hotel it is a beautiful boutique hotel to five star standards, The rooms are clean, comfortable and Asian Inspired with a minimalist theme, I am not pretentious and name drop hotels I stay in but have stayed in some of the best hotels on this planet and have found my stay at The Puli so far as a fantastic experience and would not hesitate to stay here again
