This is a great place to stay in the French Concession - great rooms, and a quiet restaurant/bar to relax away from the bustle outside! Great breakfast and only a short walk to the Metro stop. Located in a v. pleasant neighbourhood - easy to walk around and explore the Concession.

Hard to believe you are in the middle of one of the world great metropolises. A sense of calm prevails throughout though the courtyard can be buzzy and laid back in the evenings. Seems to be a favourite for weekend brunch with expats and for guests a nice touch is the early each evening of complimentary wine and nibbles. The... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Urbn Shanghai, and I still find myself smiling to myself when I start to reminisce about my recent stay. I enjoyed every minute of my stay from the moment I arrived at Pudong Airport and was greeted by one of the hotel drivers, to when Fergus the GM waved goodbye as I... More

One of the best hotels I've stayed in for years. Relatively small with lots of greenery around the courtyard, excellent service and interesting modern large rooms. The location in a mixed retail/residential area is perfect. I would not consider anywhere else.

I first stayed at URBN in June 2012, I recently returned in June 2016. The improvements made to the entire experience where simply outstanding.

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.
