The URBN in Shanghai was exactly what my husband and I needed after a grueling 3 days the bamboo forest, Yellow Mountain, and Suzhou. We spent two nights here in hopes of catching a glimpse of Shanghai on our whirlwind China trip. The staff was very helpful and arranged dinner reservations as well as hailed taxis for us. They spoke... More

I've stayed in a thousand hotels, in 15 countries. I've never had a GM sit with me and my travel companion at breakfast twice to write out suggested place to visit and help us plan our travels. I've never had a hotel staff walk with me to local restaurant and help me order dinner in a restaurant that has no... More

It is a very simple story. This is a first rate hotel. It is the only hotel that I have stayed in, in Shanghai where they actually serve a good coffee, which has a great steak, where the rooms are homely (though very cool and hip) without being too homely, where the staff are not automated big-hotel drones, where the...

What an amazing find, an oasis in the middle of busy bustling Shanghai, behind the impressive wooden gate is a hotel that is so inviting it could be your "home away from home". The ambience is ideal and starts the minute you walk behind the gates. You are greeted by friendly staff in the garden that oozes tranquility and is... More

I have been travelling to Shanghai for over 10 years and have never found a hotel that mixes style, convenience, an authentic experience and comfort - until I stayed at Urbn. Urbn first caught my eye for the fact that it is carbon neutral and I wasn’t disappointed. I stayed in June 2008 with my wife for a trip where... More

We were amazed by Shanghai, if you are really into major world-class cities then this is a place you cannot miss, it's kind of a mixture between Hong Kong, Manhattan and Gotham City! Naturally though, the experience of a city is always meliorated by staying at a phenomenal hotel, and we are confident we have found one! If you are... More

I had just ended a long camping trip in the South of China, and arrived in Shanghai with no reservation. After this long trip, sleeping in tents and hostels, I craved a night or two of comfort. I researched a few of Shanghai's upscale hotels on the internet and decided to pass on the luxurious monstrosities. Instead, I found the... More

I spent a weekend at URBN when it first opened in early 2008. In a fantastic location the design has created a special ambience for a stay in down town Shanghai. The rooms are spacious with an excellent design allowing an easy flow from bath to bed to living area. The amenities and services are A class. The retaurant has... More

The concept is well ahead of its time for China. Urbn is an Oasis in the dioxine desert of Shanghai! Beautiful interiors, well located, friendly bilingual staff. I think its probably got the most comfortable beds in the city too. But the Hotel's real inner beauty comes from them being carbon neutral - more of this please. Hopefully, we'll see... More
