I understand that Shanghai is bustling and busy. I understand that people are looking for a quiet place where they feel a bit secluded. And in that sense the URBN Hotel delivers.
But really, is it worth the price? The rooms are nice and reasonable sized. Service is Western standards and everyone speaks very good English. The manager is especially accommodating.
Location-wise, the place is very central (JingAn). If you plan to work and spend the weekend in town, you cannot find much more central location in Puxi.
But on the other hand the food is totally overpriced, the lunch menu passable and the lack of decent bar kills the mood early at night.
I wish they managed to make their nice patio or terrace lively places. It would have countered the feel that too few guests have to pay for too quiet a hotel.
