the URBN hotel is a great little retreat, situated on a quiet sidestreet in a very idylic quarter of Shanghai - many bars, nice restaurants and small shops in this neighborhoos.
Thats great for people who just want to explore the "real" Shanghai for some days or those seeking a hideaway place with a special ambience.
Its slightly less ideal for business-travelers who need to get around a lot in short time, as we found taxi-drivers have trouble finding the place and its not so easy to get a taxi quickly.
Room we stayed was very spacious, had a elegant interiour deco, and as highlight a small courtyard outside and a private outside jacuzzi to relax.
very comfortable, large bed with a firm mattress and cozy pillow - great sleeping quality !
The whole hotel has a very inviting stylish ambience to it. From the lobby, bar and restaurant area to the rooms, the sweetspot of the hotel though is definitely the garden.
Given the weather is good enough its just a fantastic place to hang out and/or eat outside in the garden - places like that are rare in china.
We were lucky with the weather during our stay and had lunch there which was fantastic.
Breakfast wasnot bad either, but (probably due to the small size of the hotel) they dont have a buffet, but menus to choose from.
a great alternative hotel with a unique ambience.More
