The hotel is very nice, everything is comfortable, beautiful and clean. Location is well And especially staffs very friendly and polite. I remember Tony who is manager in the front, he is very friendly. He suggested me about shanghai, famous places and local foods and help me to check about informations from airport. This is a good trip for me.

This is a great place to stay in the French Concession - great rooms, and a quiet restaurant/bar to relax away from the bustle outside! Great breakfast and only a short walk to the Metro stop. Located in a v. pleasant neighbourhood - easy to walk around and explore the Concession.

Hard to believe you are in the middle of one of the world great metropolises. A sense of calm prevails throughout though the courtyard can be buzzy and laid back in the evenings. Seems to be a favourite for weekend brunch with expats and for guests a nice touch is the early each evening of complimentary wine and nibbles. The... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Urbn Shanghai, and I still find myself smiling to myself when I start to reminisce about my recent stay.

One of the best hotels I've stayed in for years. Relatively small with lots of greenery around the courtyard, excellent service and interesting modern large rooms. The location in a mixed retail/residential area is perfect. I would not consider anywhere else.

I first stayed at URBN in June 2012, I recently returned in June 2016. The improvements made to the entire experience where simply outstanding.

It's a very cool spot in Shanghai, nice location and pleasant urban garden, rooms are spacious and original and quality of sleep is good. Unfortunately cleaning was a bit deceiving, floor far from being impeccable, some hairs around, not adequate to international standards It could be a great location otherwise

Admit that when I arrived at the airport in Shanghai I was worried as we drove through miles of daunting apt towers. Arriving at Urbn with its tree lined avenues and green parks and boutique cafes, I was immediately relieved.

We had an excellent 4 night stay at URBN. The hotel is beautifully designed with reclaimed materials from the former French concession area and has a gorgeous courtyard. The location is great in Jing'An on a beautiful tree-lined street filled with restaurants, cafes and shops. The staff were very helpful with great suggestions and they really went above and beyond...

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
