Fab hotel - will definitely stay again. We recently stayed four nights after a couple of nights at a big name five star hotel in the Bund.
Urbn is a stylish relaxing retreat from the energy of Shangai. Only two blocks from the metro and in a nice neighbourhood - and not too far from the beautiful French concession area.
Rooms are very comfortable and appear just as photographed on the hotel's website. Lovely design including sofas/day beds you can easily fall asleep on. Vines hung down over our window which birds visited. One thing I particularly liked was that you could open a window and also hear sounds from outside - something that bugs me about big name five star hotel chains.
The restaurant is great - western style menu - and the outside courtyard is a lovely place to sit in the afternoon and enjoy snacks and a glass of wine. Breakfast menu is lovely.
The only thing I'd suggest for the hotel is that it provide four drinking water bottles per day per room for free instead of two. It can take two people more than two bottles of water to brush their teeth each day!More
