It was perfect team very nice, room so beautiful and breakfast perfect location is very good to visit the center of the city i recommend this great place i would come again whithout any doubt thank you.

We stayed one night here recently and was upgraded to the penthouse which was a wonderful surprise. The hotel claims to be carbon neutral and they have certainly used recycled materials which add to the wonder of it. Its a great hotel close to everything in the French Concession. the only recommendation I would make is in regard to the quality of breakfast. The breakfast was ok but the coffee was made with UHT milk which is not great and the eggs were hard and on 1 bit of cold toast. The juice was great, service was slow and a little poor.

The hotel is clean and quiet, hard to find the similar one in JingAn downtown. The 4th floor 24hours fitness and breakfast is really awesome, provides lots of options. Btw, the room services is the best one compared to four season or other hotels, they won't push you to leave room and always make room clean and looks new. A little disappointment is room charge fee is not so flexible because my company changes the schedule and I have to leave one day early however this one day fee is un-refundable.

I am staying at this hotel and i must say that it´s one of my favorite all over. The URBN hotel brings its appeal through being environmentally friendly but still have a modern architecture and design with bamboo sticks. All wall bricks and wooden floors has been recycled from old houses in the old French Concession area. I personally appreciate the Zen-like interiors, the rooms and the bathrooms, and that the hotel is small. ( only 26 rooms) The rooms also have free wifi and working desk so it is suitable for working in the room. As a business traveler I appreciate the personality and friendly staff, although I would appreciate if the staff was better English spoken. I also appreciate the outside patio where they serve breakfast and also have a lighter menu for dinner. Although the mosquitos was quite hard on me this time and I guess that is the "price to pay" for an outside space with a lot of greens. The breakfast is not the biggest buffet or menu, but all is fresh and has everything you need and comes in big portions. I would definitely recommend this nice boutique hotel to all my friends and i am looking forward to come back soon.

Close or in the French concession in a lively urban neighborhood. Friendly reception. Small quiet hotel +/-25 rooms. Large, clean and nice rooms with complementary water, high quality bath products, bathrobes, slippers, coffee etc. Excellent breakfast with several on request specials without extra charge. Nice patio. The Music was sometimes a little loud for the time of the day. I will come back

great location and hotel. I would have preferred to see the garden area cleaned a bit more. Especially after the rain. But the room was top really: one of the best I have ever been and I liked the different level for the sofa. I would highly recommend.

I love this hotel. It is stylish but has a lovely retro feel to it. There are only 26 rooms so you know it is quiet and relaxing, and not having too many guests means the hotel staff can be more approachable and offer personal services. I particularly love the overhead shower and the tub in the bathroom. The toiletries are also nice. All and all this is very different from the other hotels I've stayed at in Shanghai, and I would definitely consider staying here again. The only problem I had during my stay was the TV. I had to ask the front desk for help twice because I simply could not turn the TV on. And both times it took the hotel staff quite a while to get it working. Was it supposed to be this difficult to use?

Had to spend my weekend in Shanghai due to work. URBN is definitely one of my Top 10 hotels to stay in Shanghai due to its location, price and design concept of the hotel. The location has decent restaurants nearby and quiet enough. The price matches with its interior design and quality of sleep, though there could be some improvements on its check with quality of furnishing. Overall, a very nice experience.

URBN's focus on environmental sustainability is so wonderful! URBN is such a peaceful sanctuary in the heart of Shanghai! From the delicious meals to the prime location - staying at URBN made for such a wonderful time in Shanghai. The outside seating area is so relaxing and beautiful. Additionally, the staff were so incredibly helpful -- I am not fluent in Chinese and easily found great places to eat and fun places to visit based on the URBN staff's advice. The wifi was great, never had a problem connecting to the internet. I will miss URBN -- wish I had stayed longer. I am definitely staying at URBN when I next visit Shanghai!

Five nights in Shanghai - made better by staying in this excellent tranquil hideaway. The unique style of the URBN makes a special place to stay. The rooms are spacious and have an understated luxury a great bar area to chill after a busy day sightseeing
