When it comes to boutique hotels, URBN really does stand out. This 2018 TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice Award winner is located in a redeveloped factory warehouse, impeccably blending eco-consciousness and luxury. It prides itself in being China's first carbon-neutral hotel and is dedicated to sustainability in everything it does, from the seafood served in its restaurant to the recycled and locally sourced materials in its design.
The "boutique" feeling is really highlighted by the hotel's size, with only 26 rooms in total. The smaller scale means everything is perfectly tended to and the staff is always on hand to help out. It is also tucked away in a discreet area behind Nanjing Road, meaning you are close to all the action but also isolated from all the noise and chaos.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with the in-room bathtub being a particularly fun touch. It is missing some of the usual facilities of a luxury hotel, such as a bar, spa, swimming pool, or gym, but it's a top choice for visitors who don't tend to use those facilities much anyways.
