I really like this small hotel. This was our third stay since 2011. I had booked our trip well in advance. I emailed about two weeks before to say we'd be in about midnight. Check in was all good. They had done a small update to the rooms since our last stay. The makeover was done by someone who, I... More

Great hotel , great staff the location in not what you would expect of such a large city. Tree lined street makes you feel great. the hotel has a small feel that is what we love. The rooms are a funky well designed with the great use of recycled materials. The staff are charming and friendly,

Great experience at the URBN. Loved the court yard and restaurant with plenty of light. And love that the recycled materials used to create a distinctive eco-friendly experiences (reclaimed wood, tile shingles, luggage, woks). Very cozy and personal.

this is a great little hotel near the main shopping areas of Shanghai. pro's- if you love design, architecture and the boutique feel many boutique hotels lack, this place is a total score. really stunning little rooms- great layout, reclaimed materials, handmade feel. there is nothing standard about the rooms; the beds are fantastic, the bathrooms modern clean and unique,...

Realy impressive concept implementation. Make you feel warm as well as in a home-backyard garden. Peacfull and close to most of city attractions and metro station. Well arranged outdoor space gives you a nice breakfast time to start your day. After we left was renovated so I do not know if is still like in the photos. Being there Sep... More

Let me begin by saying I really really wanted to love this hotel. I think it's got a great concept and a stellar location. As a designer, I think the sensibilities of a well designed boutique hotel resonate with me. Honestly though, If it was an option on TripAdvisor, I think 3.5 circles would be where I'd rank things.

I stayed here twice last year with my girlfriend during my time in Shanghai. It is a wonderful boutique hotel. The staff are happy to accommodate you with most requests and the rooms are beautifully designed. The lighting in particular in the rooms is quite relaxing and unique. By far, the very best thing about this hotel is the free... More

A lovely looking hotel in a really good area. I'd happily stay here again provided someone else was paying. I'm not entirely sure the expense is worth it for a private trip as there are better places to stay at that price. I have a few of grips about the design of the rooms though. The bathroom mirror was at... More

I stayed at the URBN on a recent business trip to Shanghai. Having previously stayed in the Bund area, this was quite a change but very positive one. The URBN was relaxing, beautifully designed and located in a part of town that ensured you felt the presence of China all around you. Check was efficient and quick – I was... More

Pros: central location, great looking room. Cons: -Front desk girl not friendly at all. No 'welcome to our hotel' or anything like that. Very curt. Just 'passport' and 'credit card', and then handed us our key card. Also, we had asked for early check-in (11am) and when we arrived at noon, our room was still not ready. -It's not eco-friendly...
