URBN is small and personal, with beautiful rooms, excellent amenities and fantastic food. After check in, we had a couple of very small issues that we weren't even...

The first room had an issue with the shower sink, the heating wasn't working and the internet wasn't available. The personnal was very friendly and changed my room to another one, which was really good. I suggest that house keeping should check and repair the technical features more frequently, but except this problem, it's a great and tastefully designed hotel...

Everything`s said already about the unique style, the great location, but...what our stay made that pleasant, was the staff!

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....

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.
