The URBN Hotel is in a great location near the Jingan Temple in the heart of Shanghai, therefore the location is just outstanding. Very nice is the restaurant because it gives you the chance to sit in the lush green right in the middle of Shanghai. The problems start when choosing your room. I have been at this hotel a couple of times before. The Garden Rooms are just beautiful. On the last occasion, I wanted to choose a studio room and I was shocked that for such a high price URBN offers rooms without a window!!!! Upon telling the staff, it took a long time to have an alternative room assigned and first, a payment for a room upgrade was asked for. URBN definetely offers the most expensive rooms without a window I ever visited in any place of the world. The staff was unable to cope with such a situation. Finally, I have received the information that the management of the hotel supposedely changed for the third time within three years and therefore I am not surprised of the outcome. Enjoy a garden room at this hotel but do not have any high expectations regarding this hotel.
