Everything`s said already about the unique style, the great location, but...what our stay made that pleasant, was the staff! Our breakfast waitresses were just lovely, as the waiters in the evening were. Wait 2 days, and they know what and how you want it, the third day. Served all with a beautiful smile. Reception was helpful in every moment, always...

Three nights - first time in Shanghai - coming from HK - it is just the best place to stay, if you like small boutique style hotels.

Stayed here for 6 nights on a recent visit to Shanghai. It's a great small hotel about 5-10 mins. walk away from the centre of Jing'an. Location is great. It's in a relatively quiet area but within walking distance of the metro and shops in Jing'An. Taxi's are plentiful. Rooms are fairly large and different from the usual international chains....

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...

This is a greatly unique boutique hotel with great conscious for the environment. The small hotel uses a lot of reclaimed materials for its interior and the designer has done a splendid job turning all the into a modern yet warm environment.

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.

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.
