Travellers staying at PuLi will be hard-pressed to find faults: you will feel so good you may never want to leave. Located in a business district on the edge of the former French concession with its charming, trendy neighbourhoods, the hotel is close to Jingan Temple. In fact, the Jing'an Temple Park seems to almost emerge through the bay windows in the huge lobby.
Despite its vast proportions, which include a 32-metre-long bar, there is still a feeling of intimacy. The lounges are decorated with a subtle blend of refined design and typically Chinese vases and prints. In the rooms, lacquer, wood, and bricks harmonise beautifully. And, though luxurious, PuLi is simple and warm in its hospitality, thanks to the friendliness and courtesy of the concierge and staff.
