I just stayed at the Urbana for a six night stay. I booked the hotel at a rate that included wi-fi and breakfast, but I never made it up for breakfast.
The Urbana rooms are basically apartments with kitchens, a combined washer/dryer, a bedroom (or bedrooms), and a bathroom. My room included a balcony as well, but I'm not sure if all rooms do. It was great having a washer after a week or so in Asia. My room had a photocopied manual for the washer/dryer and it was easy enough to follow.
I think this could be a terrific hotel. However, the rooms/apartments just appear worn and not kept clean. My room had a couch that was likely was yellow originally, but it now has a fairly black tint to it that seems to indicate it has never been cleaned. The furniture is IKEA-type quality and a bit marked up. The area around the tub also had some black mold similar to the photos posted by an earlier guest on this site. The wi-fi worked, but it was fairly slow at most times. Housekeeping staff were very nice and always were able to clean my room in the afternoon as I tend to be a late sleeper. The bell staff are there almost always to get the door for you or to hail a taxi. You also need a room key to access the elevators, so that was a nice security feature also.
The location is terrific. Walking distance to Chong Noisi BTS as well as a few coffee places (Starbucks, Costa, Dean and Deluca). It's just across from Convent Rd and about a 10 minute walk or a 40 baht cab ride to the Night Market area and Saladaeng BTS.
If the staff could replace the furniture, upgrade the wi-fi, and give the rooms a good deep cleaning, then this property could be 4 stars. Currently, it just rates a three.
