I have spent over 50 nights in this hotel in the last two years. The front desk staff and the food service staff were outstanding. Now, they are only fair. To be fair to them, they are new and must learn their jobs, but the hotel now appears unsteady. It may be that I miss the familiarity of my old...

I had stayed in this hotel a few years back and liked it very much . I like the way it looks when you approach the hotel. Ivy on the building is very attractive and succulents on tables in the restaurant go well with the atmosphere. Knowing it is a green hotel is also nice. I came back to stay...

My wife is a sucker for anything green / carbon neutral so we had to stay at URBN. I too was looking forward to something boutique after staying at some big chains, but was sadly disappointed. This hotel is built using scrap from torn down properties in the old town and the wooden touches around the place are very nice....

I have stayed there 30.03.17. The hotel claims to be "boutique" style hotel. It reality its just quite old nasty place. I booked a room for 200USD . Decoration is very old. Old not in respect of age, but is was quite "worn out". The staircase leading my room was like in old bomb shelter. See photos. The food in...

This is my third time to stay with URBN. Love the location/design/style alway. But the electric door of room is not very sensitive, probably need to be fixed. And the choices of breakfast can be more .

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
