We, a family of four, stopped over at the Urban Hotel for one night as we were traveling a long distance. When we booked, we asked if we could have two rooms close together as we were a family and did not want to be separated. Upon arrival we found that we had been given two rooms, next to each... More

When i came in, the personnel at the front desk seemed a bit unhappy that i was there. I did not feel welcome but was handed my roomkey and was allowed to stay for the night. At least in the morning i got a smile and a friendly good morning from the staff. Rooms look modern but are very dim... More

The hotel is situated in the core of the downtown area, one block away from the XXX mall and about 1 km away from the Waterfront Mall. The area isn't the best as there are street kids begging at the intersection and I witnessed a fight between two homeless people directly in front of the hotel. The hotel is definitely... More

I checked into The Urban Hotel having checked out of one where I experienced atrocious service. From the moment I walked through the door, I was met with a HUGE smile and absolute courtesy. The room had all the necessities and was very comfortable. I ordered dinner with a number of variations, and they catered to me with a massive... More

Was here on a business trip, and really enjoyed the stay. Very modern, clean and professional. Staff was helpful and friendly, and their breakfast was delicious. Could get crowded in the mornings which could put people off though... They also offer free Wifi in the breakfast & bar area, as well as 100mb data free per day through alwayson.

I stayed at the Urban for one night only. My reception was friendly, it was then that I noticed the good "vibe" of the staff. I found the room modern and functional. During the breakfast, which was simple but great, I had a chance to watch the interaction of the staff which ranged from a randitipn of happy birthday to... More

Compact and trendy and well situated - you pay per room and not per person which is a bonus if you travel as a couple - on the negative - pillows like bricks and would prefer a duvet - no lifts to second floor and difficult if luggage heavy - no assistance offered

Modern design and good customer service. Conveniently located, being within walking distance of the Mimosa Mall and a few minutes’ drive from the highway. Beautiful rooms, with lots of hot water and amazing water pressure. Very clean. Open 24 hours. Decent breakfast, but not included in the price of rooms.

Average hotel with a slightly funky spin on the design. The room was clean and of a decent size. Central location. Good for a stopover but not ideal for a longer stay. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast is served but it's very basic.
