URBN Hotel Shanghai
URBN Hotel is China's first carbon neutral hotel, function and fashion meet green living.

Wipe away your carbon footprint at eco-friendly URBN Hotel Shanghai.

The 26-room eco-chic boutique hostelry is doing its bit to clean up one of the most polluted cities on earth. The hotel is using locally sourced recycled materials, simple eco-friendly solutions and a carbon credit program that goes towards wind farms, hydro-electricity stations and other clean energy projects around China.

Not a reason in itself to stay but a nice plus nonetheless.

Mind your step in the rooms: working within the confines of the original post office building, the funky, functional design sees futon beds step down to sunken lounges or exposed bathtubs, and work benches that double as stairs and walkways in some rooms.

Still not impressed? Its green vibe is literal, too. Rooms look out on a patio full of bamboo, ivy and towering trees. The two penthouse suites have the run of expansive private rooftop gardens.

If you’re looking to feel good about doing your part for the environment when traveling in style, then eco-friendly URBN Hotel is a good bet.
