My wife is a sucker for anything green / carbon neutral so we had to stay at URBN. I too was looking forward to something boutique after staying at some big chains, but was sadly disappointed. This hotel is built using scrap from torn down properties in the old town and the wooden touches around the place are very nice....

I have stayed there 30.03.17. The hotel claims to be "boutique" style hotel. It reality its just quite old nasty place. I booked a room for 200USD . Decoration is very old. Old not in respect of age, but is was quite "worn out". The staircase leading my room was like in old bomb shelter. See photos. The food in...

Dear Suhrob S: Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. I was sorry to see that our hotel design was not to your taste. Our hotel is in a building that dates back 100 years, and the concept behind the design is that we have reused materials from buildings long demolished. We are an eco-conscious hotel,...

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.
