The location and restaurant design are good - in fact great. The rooms are truly spacious for the price - not sure about cleanliness of the dark slate tiled sink and bath - they looked a bit grubby in the corners and there was an awful smell coming from the drains. Unfortunately I found the service in the hotel and...

This was my 2nd stay in Shanghai and this time round I wanted something a little less 'business like' (I stayed 83 floors up in The Park Hyatt last time) but still with first class standards. Urbn Hotel was an excellent choice. My room was cool and well laid out, the staff were friendly and helpful and there was a...

We stayed for four nights on the recommendation of several friends, New York Times etc and really loved it. The concept -- China's first carbon neutral hotel -- is appealing, but other aspects are even better. It's a boutique hotel in all the right ways -- great location, gorgeous decor (reclaimed wood, natural fabrics, things like recycled leather suitcases used...

I've been there with my boyfriend in January, all the staff was very nice, the food also, the Basil Strawberry cocktail - amazing, the decoration of the lobby/retaurant etc. was taken from old french concession objects it was very nice. The rooms are very convenient, the location is just absolutly perfect. I guess the garden must be amazing in summer....

My wife and I stayed for a couple of days as part of our honeymoon and loved it. We were upgraded to a garden view room which had a very stylish and beautiful design; not your typical hotel room design--and for the better. We liked the clever use of recycled materials. One or two things in the room looked like...

I stayed at URBN a year ago and have been back countless time to enjoy the great patio and nice atmosphere many times now that I live in Shanghai. The design of the rooms is a nice change from the standard hotel room. Different levels for the bed, living area and bathroom make it a unique experience. I love the...

I used Urbn Hotel for a conference this week and am sooo disappointed. From the first contact at reception for directions to the end of the 2-day conference, the service was surprisingly poor: the coffee/tea snacks were served late and causing disruption to the meetings, when I requested for service via telephone (no wait staff present) I was transferred to...

Our stay at URBN started well with an upgrade to a garden view room that we found stunning. The design of the hotel is very clever with the use of locally reclaimed resources that create a modern feel with a real link to the past. The room was a good size and included a comfortable work space and seating area...

I have stayed in many boutique hotels in different countries and I must say this is one of the best yet. One of the more unique feature of Urbn is its "green" hotel concept wherein a lot of the materials that they've used to build and design their property came from old, demolished buildings in different parts of Shanghai, thus...

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.
