URBN tries to be different. In a way, they have succeeded with location, the buildup of the hotel (conserving approach), the layout of the room, the decor, the ambiance. However, need to be mindful of form over function. E.g. the bathroom - not very practical with the layout and the floor just gets wet after a bath or shower. Decor...

Very relaxed place in this busy city of Shanghai. The courtyard outside is protected and great to take your breakfast. People are very helpful and not on your back, which is very pleasant. Rooms are originally set . Location is great also.

Had a few nights of stay here for a friend's wedding then enroute to Taipei for a trip. Staff knows the area well, Shanghai is modern, this hotel is modern too. Stepped in and you will feel a different atmosphere altogether. You don't have to worry about food because you're surrounded by food within this area.

This is my 3rd time in recent years at this boutique hotel and URBN is better managed than ever. We had a lovely well appointed room overlooking the garden that was most peacefully surrounded by greenery, most visible through a huge picture window. The noise of the urban jungle melts away and in this central French Concession retreat. This hotel...

In the city for a furniture fair and at the hotel for a convention with other Italian company and local investors. After an initial disservice, a temporary room for a quick shower saved the situation. Apart of this, colonic style spacious rooms with large use of recycled wood. A large bath tub behind the bed and a small living. Stone...

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood 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.
