Location is central and consists of a renovated postal office surrounded by a charming outdoor beer garden/lounge highlighted by up-lit bamboo trees and reclaimed brick siding. The lobby is small but connected to the...

Good location - close to the centre but quiet enough there was some problem (could not change channel, probably out of battery for the remote) with the TV but it was too late so I did not call reception

Everything is good except the wifi. I have no idea but the hotel wifi "URBN hotel" wasn't that stable so I have to connect the other one called "beer garden". Beer garden works perfectly compare with the hotel wifi.

Staff was helpful and spoke very good english. Rooms were big and had interesting layout. Not just a room with a bed in the middle where you don't have any room for your luggage. Internet speeds were pretty fast which is good for any VPN-service. Breakfast was either a buffet with lots of fruit, coffee, pastries, bacon, slices of bread...

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.
