I arrived at 10pm on saturday and nobody was there to check me in.I had to get a room at a nearby hotel. Next morning at 9am I call the 2 cell phone numbers listed on the door for the office... More

Hallo, I'm sorry that you experienced some troubles during your check in. Late check in is a free automatic service that we offer to our customers (instead of concurrence which often it makes it pay 50 euro or more). It's your main concern, overall when you're checking in out of office hours, to read instructions where are clearly written info... More

Dear customer, nobody have or will ask for you a surtax of 10% on your credit card. We've fixed 300 euro as minimum limit to pay by credit card. That's clearly written on your reservation. As many little hotel don't offer credit card facility, we do, but representing a major cost (2,5% in charge of the hotel) we had to... More

I can't review Urben Suites itself as we did not stay there, it may well be a great place to stay, but I want to warn others of our terrible experience of trying to book on the hotel's own website www.urben.it.. We booked and paid on the website for a non-refundable rate on a Saturday to arrive 2 weeks later.... More

We stayed 4 nights in September from Saturday through Wednesday. Staff we pleasant and helpful. Room was excellent: quiet, clean and comfortable. Hotel is only 5 min walk from Republica station. We took a private car service booked on the Urben website to and from the airport. Was efficient and great value. Excellent stay.

Urben is for a relaxed, and good boutique stay. Enjoyed the area and access to metro. Would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet retreat in center of Rome! The room was cleaned to a very high standard and had a great balcony to enjoy the late summer sun. When in Rome stay here...
