“Small, Cozy & friendly. Perfect if meetings in Brickell Av.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I chose this hotel as I was in Miami for 2 days of meetings all in Brickell Ave. The hotel is on the far end of Brickell Av but I could walk to all my meetings (10/15 minutes but not advised in high temperatures). The hotel is clean, and the staff are very friendly. There is a lovely little pool at the back that is a real sun trap, complete with nice sitting areas in the sun or shade. There is even a lovely fire that they light in the evenings that I just loved to sit round with a glass of beer/wine. The food in the hotel is also VERY GOOD and at a great price. Some Mexican classics with the typical american twist (much larget portions).

The gym is small but nice and has everything you need, tradmill, bike, cross fit (with TVs fitted) & free weights. It overlooks the pool which is nice.

I must warn that it does not really have a classy lobby area/bar to hold meetings (my meetings were all in clients offices). That said I would definately stay here again if visiting Brickell Av for business.

I stayed here during my business/pleasure trip. Staff was great, they didn't have a room I reserved available for me so they upgraded me for no extra charge. Food at the restaurant was great. Hotel is short driving distance to downtown Miami...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel the evening before we departed for a cruise. It's a hidden jewel. The hotel staff was excellent, and our room was quite clean and comfortable. We ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel. Although the evening menu was a bit limited, our entrees were delicious and the wait staff attentive. Breakfast was well done with generous portions. The hotel has an artsy decor and an attractive pool area. Hotel Urbano is located on Brickell in an area that appears primarily residential. It's an easy walk to the causeway. We'll stay there again the next time we're in Miami.

Sometime life brings us surprises that we really didn’t expect and this is exactly what happened to me and my husband in April when we were going for a cruise. Our first plan was to go to Miami the night before our departure for a cruise in the Southern Caribbean, rent a room near the Port of Miami so we would be there in time for our cruise and wouldn’t have to worry too much… But that was not counting on Mother Nature who decided to send us the last snowstorm of the year and which completely changed our plans. Naturally, we couldn’t cancel the cruise, so we had to make sure we arrived before the storm hit Montreal, on Friday April 12. The Hotel we wanted to reserve was not available anymore, so I found another one… well I can honestly say that I discovered a little gem. Hotel Urbano (www.hotelurbanomiami.com). This hotel greets you with a butler that can either act as a valet to park your car or will take your luggage and bring them to your room. The gentlemen at reception will greet you with a smile, and will very quickly give you your key for your room. In the elevator they change the carpet 3 times a day, wishing you a “good morning”, “good afternoon” or “good evening”. The room is just exquisite and the bed is better then a cloud (I’m sure)! Bathroom is modern and spacious with all the necessary amenities. The backyard just invites you to unwind completely with 2 cabanas (with flat screen t.v.) and a sealing fan. The pool is also very inviting. There are tables at which you can order your food… and on that subject, I can honestly say that the cook for this hotel is more a “Chef” then a “cook”. Their french-fries are just to die for! This is a small hotel (65 rooms) that can definitively compete with the bigger hotels. It is very near to Key Biscayne Park… you can walk to it and go to the beach or you can take the little tram, which is free and has a stop right in front of the door and go downtown Miami to shop or walk around… This is truly an amazing place. The only down point would be the breakfast... VERY good... but quite expensive, especially that the coffee is not included and they charge 4$ for it!!! But that is not enough for us not to go back... The other very important service we discovered was a taxi driver… Carlos (Espinoza)… he was appointed to us by the Taxi dispatcher at the Miami airport. Not only was he very nice and drove well, but he took us around the hotel we were staying at, so we could see what was there. He’s the one who told us about the Key Biscayne, and all that at no extra charges! He also told us that if we needed him to come and pick us up on Saturday, to go to the Port, he would be pleased to do so. From past experience we know that often they say that, but when we actually call them… they never show up… Well guess what? He was there!!! In advance!!! So for all you who need a ride in Miami, here is his contact info: Carlos Espinoza 786-587-7612… And enjoy your stay in Miami while waiting to get to your cruise!

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!
