We stayed at the URBN hotel based on a number of reviews and the fact we were sick of staying on the bund. It is a beautiful property tucked away in a quiet street. Tranquility in Shanghai is hard to find and this place exudes it in buckets
Location - the hotel is tucked away at the back of a courtyard in a quiet area of Jingan within walking distance of the pagoda and metro. Also it is close to the lake and park if you want to walk. Opposite the hotel are some cool shops selling funky clothing - all recycled but we were able to get some hand made recycled jeans with crystals sewn on.
Rooms - different but in a good way. Our room had a sunken seating area with a raised bed. Nice wooden design although some may find them a little dark. Quiet and relaxed atmosphere with a bed that brought a great nights sleep.
Restaurant - great breakfast. Wholesome and included in the price.
All in all - great hotel. Great service and excellent location. A little toppy in terms of price but so long as the prices do not go up from current levels a good option for Shanghai
