of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
I've been to Shanghai several times, stayed in various hotels, and it was my first time at the Puli. And I will certainly return only to the Puli. There's an elegance about the hotel that sets it apart. The location is superb. Along the main Changde Road but with rows of bamboo that shelter it from the noise and cluster of people and cars that can overwhelm. Staff are well trained and highly efficient. The beautiful lobby can be quite busy at times but someone always attends to you. I had an early morning trip out of Shanghai and needed my breakfast boxed and ready for me by 5:50am. Even though breakfast only starts at 6am, the in-room dining staff not only accommodated the request, but had it sent to my room exactly at 5:50am. Facilities in the hotel are excellent. The gym is spacious and well equipped. Although the tv connections on machines is not as touch screen friendly. My club room was spacious and well maintained. Cleaned very well, with constant replenishment of toiletries. The only points that disappointed was my airport driver and car smelt slightly of cigarettes; and when I ordered eggs benedict, the eggs were well done! But these are minor points, as the hotel certainly ticks all the important boxes any traveller requires. Safety, cleanliness, efficiency, excellent location, good facilities and a great place to stay when away from home.

"Phenix... a very special eatery..."
Phenix... if you travel to Shanghai, remember this name or easier, remember The Puli because it is simply an amazing hotel and Phenix, its one Michelin star "eatery" is a wonderful restaurant. Located at the first floor, it is definitively the best place for gathering with friends in the most elegant and comfortable decor. It is incredibly warm, lighting is perfect, bar and lounge are stunning and you will soon realize how excellent is the team because they thought to the smallest details to make the guests experience unique and memorable. Having a few glasses of well selected bubbles in these large cream sofas before dinner is definitively not to be missed. On both sides of the bar area is a delightful dining room with well separated tables beautifully dressed. The design is great to make you very comfy and it is easy to fall under the charm of this outstanding dining place before even starting to eat... Food is very sincere, not over complicated but very savory and chef didn't forget the sense of plating which is essential because a dinner has to please not only palate but eyes as well. The foie gras torchon is one of the best I've had, perfectly seasoned and served with a lightly spicy fig jam and a crispy butter brioche... so yummy... they do as well a great Sunday brunch which seems to be delicious... Will definitively try it next time. Service is also so kind, smily and courteous. Hard to find a parallel service in China and even around the world. Team at the puli is just perfect probably because this property is prodigeously managed by the talented GM Jan Tibaldi and the F&B manager, Alexandre, I'd a creative professional trying to turn a dinner at Phenix into much more than a dinner. Following dinner, having a last drink at the lively long bar is a plus and extending with an overnight in one of the rooms or suites is like the icing on the cake... (You can refer to my feedback about this hotel). This is THE place where to go and dine in Shanghai... magical.
"Beautiful, spa-like rooms in a great location"
This hotel is one of my top recommendations for visitors to Shanghai. The rooms are beautifully laid out and give you the sense of being in a spa-like atmosphere in your own room. I loved the lighting and the layout of the bathrooms, which gave you a sense of warmth and relaxation. The lobby, while no less beautiful, is pretty small in size. Just a note in case some visitors like sprawling, large lobbies with a lot of things to see or do. The location in Jing'An is convenient to get around. Highly recommended!
"INCREDIBLE doesn't even begin to describe it..."
The Puli Hotel is by far and away the most luxurious hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. It is so understated yet the attention to detail is exquisite. The staff are not just friendly and helpful, they will go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need and also a few things you didn't know you needed... I am looking so forward to my next visit - I actually just want to live there forever....
