As many other reviewers have noted, this is a chic boutique hotel in central Shanghai. For us, it was the attention to detail and the small touches which made all the difference. Which started when we arrived from a long flight we were immediately shown to our room, handed our room keys, a handwritten note and the WIFI password. No waiting at the front desk.
The architecture and design blends both contemporary modern with clean lines and the style and texture of many old buildings in Shanghai. The rooms are split level which gives a sense of space. Our garden room looked out over the tree tops and sunlight flooded in through the huge windows in the morning.
The staff remembered our names and went out of their way to ensure at we had everything we needed, without being over bearing.
The restaurant served up great food, we stayed at the weekend and most of the customers were ex-pats and locals. The sofa area is a great place to curl up with a coffee or glass of wine.
The location is pretty central, about 10 mins walk to Nanjing Rd West, 5 mins to the Metro station, yet it feels relaxed and residential.
We regularly stay in Shanghai. This was our first stay at URBN and it won't be our last.
