“Wished we could have stayed longer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

A girlfriend and I stayed here for one night on our way down to Key West. I did extensive searching for a hotel and found that hotels in South Beach were incredibly expensive and had horrible reviews online. We decided on Hotel Urbano (not in South Beach, but in the financial district) because of the great reviews and I found a deal through the hotel's Facebook page. We were really just looking for a place to spend the night before driving down to Key West so I can't really comment about the area and the proximity to tourist sights, but this was a really lovely hotel. The staff was friendly when we checked in, the room was clean and modern, and the beds so comfortable! It was quiet too. The bathroom was spacious and clean. Our balcony overlooked the beautiful pool and courtyard and I wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy it. The hotel looks like it has been renovated and kept up very well and has fun artwork that really gives it a Miami-vibe. I would definitely stay here again.

Great little weekend getaway spot away from tourist-riden South Beach. Really cool art adorned the walls of the hotel. Overall excellent experience and really enjoyed my time at the pool. The staff was helpful and provided fantastic dining recommendations. I'll for sure be back!

My husband and I stayed 1 night at the Urbanno Hotel before our cruise. We found the man on reception very abrupt and not the friendliest. Our room which was advertised as city view was ground floor and faced a 10' fence...no view.... but room was clean and spacious We thought its only 1 night so it'll do! The pool area was lovely and not busy but every time we went to the bar for a drink the barperson was never there and at one time I waited about 4 minutes for a drink. Was not overly impressed with the food....especially breakfast. We sat down, had to ask for menus, they forgot butter for the toast,had to ask for tea, bacon and eggs very greasy and when we asked for the bill, she brought the folder without the bill. Explained she had been out late the night before. There was no problem getting a taxi next morning. Don't think I would use again.

This hotel is unassuming from the street – but once you’re inside it’s so cool! Tons of really interesting artwork in the lobby area and hallway – breakfast was awesome and our favorite part was the cute little cabana/waterfall area in the back by the pool. Great location too. I'll be back soon.

This place was recommended to me by a friend but I was not impressed and found it in between a high-end motel and a standard hotel. The hotel is a 15-20 minute walk to the central part of Brickell where most business and life activities take place, and getting a taxi is difficult. This place is probably better suited if you are not needing a business hotel, but a leisure hotel. Despite the friendly staff, I was not impressed with the Hotel Urbano.

We appreciate your review and opinion and are sorry that you were "not impressed" with our hotel but we are hapy to hear you found our staff friendly and professional. Perhaps on your next visit you can take advantage of the free trolley service that stops directly in front of the hotel to get to the center of Brickell. We hope you traveled safely and will be able to visit again soon.

A fantastic stay at Hotel Urbano!

From online reservations all the way through check out the staff at Hotel Urbano showed that business can still be conducted with a smile. The room was clean, comfortable, and luxurious as it exceeded all expectations. In my many visits to the area this is by far the best hotel for the money that I have stayed at. Our room had an amazing balcony overlooking the pool, yet was quiet at night making for an ideal stay for couples, families, and friends alike. I cant wait to return!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool had an awesome balcony and view!

I stayed at Hotel Urbano for one night and it was a great experience. The management and staff were so helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was great and it was nice to sit out by the pool to enjoy it. This is the perfect hotel for anyone but especially a corporate traveller who frequents Miami - could be your home away from home.
