This place looks amazing... too bad we never got to stay there. Despite promising a 24 hour reply on their website, it took a week and a half (after four emails and multiple phone call attempts) to reach someone. We finally got a reply confirming the booking one week before our arrival date, which was subsequently cancelled because they emailed... More

We spent two nights at the Urban Villa at the end of our trip through the Rockies. After a long journey from Lake Louise, it was a joy to arrive at the UV. Our 'apartment' was beautifully furnished, very clean and modern, and consisted of two double rooms (one with a double bed, the other with 2 singles for our... More

The Urban Villa is easy to find and handily situated for some chi chi downtown shops and restaurants. We had a warm welcome from Gwen and were made to feel very at home, without feeling smothered. The decor of the whole hotel (more like a very nice house) is modern and chic, and the attention to detail in our room... More

URBAN VILLA IS A GEM. I am from Arizona, and I meet my Canadian relatives in Kelona for a short holiday. It was perfectly situated to take advantage of everything Kalona has to offer- a few blocks from the beach, a couple of blocks from the funky Pandosy area, and minutes away from the downtown. It is an ideal combination... More

Urban Villa is not your standard guesthouse. The interior has been lovely restored to create a modern and cool atmosphere (the air-con is great and not noisy!). The common room area includes a lounge with comfy sofas, wide screen plasma tv, an open plan kitchen, dinning area and balconies at the front and back. The rooms are simply but tastefully... More

Urban Villa is beautifully decorated and one of the nicest boutique hotels I've stayed in. The service was impeccable, with that extra touch only an owner could give. The beds are more comfortable then my own at home! Urban Villa is a little out of town but only a short drive. Overall I had a wonderfully relaxing stay!

Quite far out of town, this very modern building with super-flash and trendy interior provides for a very comfortable stay (the bed is something else). However, the welcome is poor at best and the breakfast is as basic as you can imagine. Don't expect anyone to fall over themselves helping you (or remembering you). Not one for giving negative reviews... More

Urban Villa is 3 blocks from the most popular beach in Kelowna, Gyro Beach. A three minute walk to trendy shops and cafe's on Pandosy Street. And a five minute drive to downtown Kelowna. More

A foot high mattress on a king size bed in a luxiourious room, which was beautifully decorated and furnished. What more can you ask for from a room? Very much a relaxing B&B feel, which added to the experience, thanks to the hospitality of the hotel manager. Common areas are equally as well appointed and well maintained as the rooms.... More

This was a surprise 4th anniversary trip to Kelowna, our first experience with the city. Urban Villa was my choice because of the glowing TA reviews, and I have to say, every positive review was accurate. Besides the reviews, the pictures of the attractive, modern setting drew me in. When we arrived I was not disappointed. Once you are on... More

Stayed 2 nights in King Suite. As nice as a luxury hotel room. Great continental breakfast, great staff. I am not a big fan of B&B but this is more like an Inn with one shared area.
