When you are in a city where no one seems to speak english you want as much help as you can get to make your stay comfortable and easy.
At Urbn help was always available with patience and with ease.
The hotel's staff were also helpful with useful suggestions to assist in making the most of our stay in Shanghai.
The hotel itself was extremely comfortable and spacious. A relaxed environment without compromising courtesy and service.
The hotel had a wonderful international buzz.

I have been to Urbn twice - most recently in early May, and before that, in January.
Both times I stayed in the studio room. I think it's the smallest room, but still i found it quite spacious. I loved the decor, the vibe, and the layout is interesting (there is a sunken seating area, and the bathtub is not in bathroom but in the room - for easy tv viewing while relaxing in bath). The beds are comfy and the rooms are quiet, perfect for a good night's sleep. We had breakfast in the garden and it was very nice and relaxing, especially when the weather was nice and sunny. You forget that you're in the middle of a very busy part of town.
I have yet to see the rooftop - which I will do next time I visit.

Service is not something that immediately springs to mind when staying in Shanghai, but Urbn's staff are on it. Very friendly and helpful and i just love the atmosphere on the ground floor - not your usual sterile, bland reception in a Shang or a Hyatt - you immediately feel like you are integrating into the heart of Shanghai. Edgy and cool. The bedrooms are well designed and elegant and there has been no messing around when it comes to the beds - just extremely comfortable.

Room Tip: Get one with a bath.

I relocated to Shanghai for work in April 2012, should have found an apartment, but 6 weeks later I am still in Urbn. This is actually the 5th time in 2 years I have stayed at Urbn, including over Chinese New Year when it was a good refuge from the fireworks.

The area, Jing'an, is eclectic, and the setting of the hotel takes it back from the street into old world Shanghai with great modern design. The rooms are very comfortable and unique. The whole place is unique. The people are friendly and helpful.

I have found an apartment and am moving down the road, yet shall be back for drinks and food at the Downstairs restaurant.

For trip sort: it was all of the options combined. I did like the couple time though.

Room Tip: The rooms on the "half levels"; ie mezzanine levels, have a great design with a sunken bat...

From the moment that we stepped through the impressive front gate off the buzzing local Shanghai streets we felt immediately at home in Urbn. The attention to detail, friendly faces, great service, spacious and uber cool rooms, huge bath tub and…..delicious morning coffee made this by far the best hotel we stayed in in China. We loved the fact that we could hang out in the restaurant downstairs for as long as we wanted, feeling like a bit of a home away from home, and that when we had a big day out touring Shanghai, that we could always rely on a quiet afternoon nap in our apartment sized room. Being able to indulge in a satisfying burger and freshly squeezed juice at 2am courtesy of the 24 hour room service also won big ticks. In short, a sophisticated, luxe stay in the middle of busy Shanghai with all the comforts of home. Already can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Choose a garden view room overlooking the courtyard

Just finishing a stay here now. We got an upgrade to a garden view room, very nice space, spacious and comfortable, the big windows are a plus, room gets great light. Big bath tub and huge shower. Lots of storage space so you don't have to keep tripping over suitcases. Hotel services are friendly and efficient, although there is a bit of a language barrier in some ways.

One big note for people planning a stay: from several sources we were under the impression the hotel had a policy of not allowing guests to bring children under age 12. In fact, this was a big part of our decision to book here, since we often find that people travelling with small children have a way of taking over the spaces they are using, whether it's their children running around the public areas making lots of noise or parents generally not being very attentive to their children. So, we were surprised to find a family with small children staying at the hotel, children yelling in the garden, the family hanging out in the bar. This is in no way a child-appropriate hotel, just surprised to see people not clue into that and management not address it.

Room Tip: The garden view room is great.
